After staying in about seven other places during our stay in Sri Lanka, we decided to end our holiday in style and pushed the boat out by choosing Mount Lavinia. The lobby, bar, swimming pool and terrace were all very well looked after - although the rooms themselves seemed a bit dated. We successfully requested to move room once shown... More

We stayed here on our first night in Sri Lanka, just for one night, but it gave us a great introduction to the country. The hotel is beautiful, if slightly worn around the edges.It is situated right on the coast, with a lovely pool and awesome views - just watch out for the crows! Our room (a suite) was gorgeous...

This hotel is filled with tradition and history and has been modernized with the latest amenities and luxuries. Here you get a fine balance of rich heritage and modern luxuries. The beach is always beautiful and the view from the hotel is absolutely astonishing.

We stayed for 3 nights before heading off to Kandy. Room had to be changed as we were given twin beds in error but all dealt with efficiently. Unfortunately found a "visitor" in the bathroom which we quickly caught in a glass. Again it was dealt with efficiently... Though we felt a complimentary evening meal might have been offered as...

If you only manage to sip a cocktail on the terrace of the Mount Lavinia Hotel for sundowners then you must, as the setting is wonderful. I ate dinner, the service was exemplary and the food was out of this world. The variety of fresh salads are never ending and satisfying enough, however, the entrees are divine. There is an... More

We spent one night at Mount Lavinia on our transfer to the airport. We had a lovely very comfortable stay here but unfortunately only for one night so we were unable to take advantage of all the facilities the hotel has. From what we saw, the beach looked amazing but we didn’t have time to use it. We only ate... More

This is the third time that we have stayed at this hotel. Location is good and visually it's a beautiful colonial hotel. Positives - most of the staff that we encountered were friendly and smiley. The breakfast buffet is one of the best that I have encountered in Sri Lanka as was one of the evening buffets of local cuisine,... More
