As a business traveller who stays in many fine hotels, I was utterly delighted when the taxi pulled up outside Mount Lavinia. It was night as I checked in so I pretty much went straight to bed. I couldn't figure out what the noise was outside so in the morning, I opened the curtains to see that I was right... More

Hotel great, loved its style. Great room and view. Good food and again good view from the restaurant. Check-in a little slow as had some trainees just starting. Would have been an excellent but had some maintenance issues (gap in window, leading to a lot of ocean noise at night). Enjoyed my stay.

We booked 12 room in 2009 for 3 nights and enjoyed our stay, business conference, team activities and all the facilities available at the hotel. Food was perfect with variety of options to choose from. Rooms were specious. Staff, check in & check out, travel arrangement was quick. They also arrange for special welcome in traditional Sri Lankan style.

We did manage to... More

I stayed at this hotel for a few days and really love the dinner buffet they provide, though the only best choice you may have instead going out nite. You need to take taxi and not easy to get one on time. The bad is the room is old but thats what you will get for this colonial style hotel.

I completely understand the cultural heritage of this hotel and I am sure that in its glory days it was a wonderful place to stay but time has moved on and the hotel is falling apart. We payed less for far superior places in Sri Lanka and I have stayed in many places around the world but this has been... More

Mt Lavinia Hotel is certainly grand looking from far, however a close look at almost everything reveals just how old it is. Mostly I found this to be part of the charm of the hotel, knowing its history, however there were a few things that I felt let the old charm down. I would return there and recommend it as... More
