After reading the reviews, my boyfriend and I really wanted to love the Havelock Place. Out of all the hotels and guesthouses we stayed at during our trip to Sri Lanka however, this was by far our least favorite. The service was extremely rude and unfriendly. Checkout was at 11, and at 15 minutes prior to checkout we received a... More

We stayed at Havelock Place Bungalow for the first night of our holiday and it was the perfect start. As a family of five we had two rooms and they were both uniquely furnished. What stood out though was the amazing breakfast we were served. The owner is a passionate cook and the food was fantastic. Amongst the best we... More

My wife and I stayed at the Havelock Place Bungalow Colombo, for 5 nights from the 27th March to 1st April. We were absolutely delighted with the homely and friendly atmosphere the management availed to us. The food is all home cooked and it was amongst the best we have eaten anywhere. The room (no 5) we had was delightful.... More

We stayed here for our first 2 nights in Sri Lanka- and we don't think anywhere else will measure up! Service was outstanding and staff delightful. We enjoyed the pool and sitting on the verandah in the morning and evening. The food was absolutely amazing. The owner told us she enjoys cooking, and the menus show her love of food... More

by far the nicest and most welcoming place i stayed in during my stay in Sri Lanka. The owner is a superb chef worthy of a Michelin star and the old colonial style of the hotel made me feel as if i was living the life of a character from a novel written long ago..... Sri Lanka with all it's... More

This is simply beautiful place to stay. It has the sense of a Balinese villa mixed with the old world charm of colonial Colombo in a quiet and safe environment. The food was amazing - such a welcome treat to end my trip after a month's travelling around the island. I had a three-course lunch with some nice vino. Staff... More

We stayed one night in this amazing place, amazing food, homemade ice cream, wonderful breakfast. And not forgetting a wonderful pool with jacuzzi that our family loved to swim in .The staff was very helpful. Would love to come back to this oasis.

We stayed for a couple nights. Very polite and helpful management and staff. The grounds are lovely. Room #5 was great. Loved the unique raised platform bed. Oddly enough though, the high point of the room is the bathroom. Difficult to explain except to say that it's open air. Lovely concrete and stone design. Try the homemade ice cream.
