We have stayed here on many occasion for business and pleasure since 1998 and never been disappointed. The rooms, service, staff and facilities have always been outstanding making it one of our favourite hotels in Colombo . Good restaurants, lively Library bar, brilliant pool and a good meeting place near the city centre make it popular. On this occasion my... More

Spent 2 separate nights here as honeymooners, the first night was in a sea view room and for the 2nd night we were granted an upgrade to a lake view room which was very nice! The staff were all very friendly and extremely helpful and the food in the open buffet was just to die for! Highly recommended hotel!

In Colombo for work rather than holiday and the location for me was great, close to all my meetings so no lost time caused by traffic!! The hotel is currently going through major refurbishment with work starting a 0700 through to 1900. The staff are trying to minimise disturbance to residents but they can't really stop the sound of jack... More

The hotel is currently under MAJOR refurbishment and this was not made clear to us at the time of the booking. The noise was noticeable and whilst sitting around the pool we were interrupted by the constant banging and clattering from the external works. The level of health and safety for the works being undertaken was nothing short of appalling... More

Good news!! 7 degrees has live music again. The tapas and drinks are excellent. Sitting outside by the lake on the deck and listening to wonderful music while sipping a drink, is a delight. This bar is at Cinnamon lakeside and I highly recommend the experience.

We have stayed at this hotel before but this time they were doing building and upgrading work. It is a good hotel with excellent facilities but if we had known that building work was going on we would have changed the booking. Very disappointed with them for not informing us.

I stayed in the cinnamon grand for 1 nights and I absolutely loved the excellent services offered. it. Had an outstanding experience. Food was awesome and the buffet offers a good variety. My wife and myself being vegetarians enjoyed a lot on special dishes specifically made to us upon request
