Me and my wife stayed here for a couple of days. The resort is not at all customer friendly. They charged us for our early checkin and also asked us to pay the room charges before we checked in. The manager her is very rude and will not help you with anything. The rooms are dull and the bathrooms are... More

Stayed here for a night before flying out of Colombo at the end of our hols. The resort gave a good impression - nice reception, pool, welcome drinks. The room is very basic - I could tell that there had been painting done recently as the smell of pain was very strong in the room. Was a bit of a... More

The swimming pool and reception area is very inviting and a pleasant area. On arrival, we were greeted with welcome soft drink, our room was rather a shocker, don't be fooled by the room pictures, nothing like it, our room was damp, dark and dull with rotten curtains at the windows, you can't draw them, as the veiw from the...

This hotel is right next to the beach near Mt. Lavinia. Its a quaint property and has a swimming pool. A railway track runs between the hotel & the beach, so there are trains passing by. But these do not cause any significant disturbance and only add to the local color. Foot over-bridges are available to cross the tracks. This... More

It is a budget resort providing complimentary breakfast, AC rooms, swimming pool and they also provide cab services for city tour etc. However the best part is: Ranveli resort is located just aside the scenic beach of Mount Lavinia (hardly 2 mins walk). In order to go to the beach we have to cross an open restaurant/bar and that's another... More

Stayed here for one night until I travelled elsewhere. Room was clean, dated but I didn't mind as it was only somewhere to sleep. Shower flooded the floor and the toilet was blocked, called the maintenance guy and he came straight over and sorted it out. Dinner was typically sri lankan curry and rice, very tasty. Breakfast was again curry... More
