Our first trip to Sri Lanka. We arrived at 10am after direct flight from UK. They gave us a room right away. Staff very helpful in every way. Hotel was obviously a busy downtown business hotel but even as "one nighters" we were made to feel very welcome. I write this review mainly to comment on the evening buffet meal.... More

Spend couple of nights. Size of room was good. Room and corridor were smelly and beds were not comfortable. Sometimes it takes pretty long to get connected to reception thru room phone. Buffet breakfast was very good.

The check in was efficient and I was given room 205 at the end of two quite long corridors. The room is reasonly large with a... More

My husband and I only got to spend one night at this hotel whilst on our honeymoon. The room was a lakeside and pool view, which was very nice and clean, with a decent sized bathroom. We were on half board and the buffet breakfast and dinner were amazing. Tons of assorted food to eat and everything tasted good. Service... More

When you have your wedding in a hotel you have a special place for it and that is what Cinnammon Lakeside is for us, although it was many years ago when it was called the Transasia. We have been back many times to patronize Long feng, The royal thai and have had many a meeting at the Library which provides... More

Very good hotel with excellent service. The restaurants in the hotel have very good food and offer various cuisines. The pool is quiet large with view over the lake. The rooms are spacious and are very clean. Some have a balcony with a view over the city. The location is pretty nice as well. You are at a reasonable distance... More

This is the second time I have stayed with Cinnamon Lakeside Colombo hotel. I was amazed the very first time when I stayed here. The service was impeccable and everyone there were all smiles. Unfortunately, this time round, there were very few smiles and very few hellos. The room was as usual, great. Spacious, comfortable and relaxing. We stayed there... More
