What a pleasure to spend the last night of our 10 day tour in such a fabulous hotel. After a long journey from Galle we were welcomed in the superb lobby area with cold towels and cold drinks. It was also tinged with sadness as we had to say goodbye to our brilliant guide, Kamal, who had shown us around... More

A nice hotel but not 5 star. I couldn't fault the staff who were very courteous and attentive. However the rooms are too shoddy for five star. Faulty bath plug and poor workmanship in the bathroom, things that a five star paying guest should never have to notice. I would expect to pay half of what I did pay for... More

We just checked out this afternoon from a supposedly one night, extended to 2 nights stay at Cinnamon Lakeside. We booked 2 twin rooms for 4 adults 2 children through Agoda (for 1 night then again for another night). Agoda offered a better rate of $155 per night with breakfast for 2 people. Remember that all SL hotels charge about... More

I like staying at the Cinnamon mainly because of its amenities and food and beverage offerings. Whereas traditional urban hotels of this category have a coffee shop, a bar and one or two restaurants, the Cinnamon doubles that number with ease. This is great because the hotel's location is not the most superb, so after a long day in business... More

Stayed there for one night as we were going to Beruvala the next day. But its a nice hotel and while the location is not that great but there is a lake on the other side which probably adds a bit to the location. The rooms are nice, we had booked a double occupancy and it was comfortable. Awesome view... More

Lovely atmosphere and friendly staff. A wide range was available for high tea, including sushi. The prices are reasonable given the variety and setting. Will recommend it for any couple who is into an elegant afternoon.
