Service and check in were excellent. Staff were phenomenal. Breakfast buffet was decent with a good selection. The band at the lounge were... More

Stayed here for a week this March and the construction noise was terrible. The hotel is renovating and is under construction from 7am-7pm. If you want peace and quiet this is not the place. The restaurants were good - in particular the Chinese restaurant. The staff is v friendly and helpful. This would have been a great hotel were it... More

Arrived the hotel at 2:30 am and departed at 7:30 am in the morning so my experience was very brief. Check-in was very efficient. We were assigned to a room adequate for the night. Buffet breakfast served in the restaurant had a wide selection.

We have just returned from a wonderful holiday in Sri Lanka. Although we stayed with family this time, we visited Cinnamon lakeside on a number of occasions. We had the delicious brunch there on Easter Sunday where my daughter Nuha won the children Easter competition and returned home with some tasty goodies. I would like to say a big thank... More

I have now been to Cinnamon Lakeside a number of times very pleasant staff and good service. The food buffet is great alot of different varieties of food sri lankan,western and Asian also the dessert bar is to die for. Well worth a try and well priced at 2500 rupees ($25 Australian). Do yourself a favor and visit Cinnamon Lakeside

First time in Sri Lanka so the hotel is always a bit of a lottery - but safe to say this place is a winner! The hotel is being renovated but they do a very good job of isolating the works away from guests. The real highlight is the service. The staff here are incredibly friendly and helpful, i'd venture...

We were lucky enough to get a corner suite on the 5th floor, though we were only there for 1 night it was great to have the luxury of a private terrace and the use of the executive bar/lounge on the 7t floor. The rooms were well appointed and nothing was too much trouble for the staff, a true lesson... More

We had a good stay here after a long tour of Sri Lanka. I must say it was probably one of the best hotels that we stayed in Sri Lanka - it's clean, modern and has an inner city hotel feeling. The buffet restaurant was very nice - we had breakfast and dinner there. There was plenty of choice. The... More
