We arrived exhausted from a long flight and Tropic Inn welcomed us warmly. We expected to have a room for four people as that was what we booked, but instead were given two doubles, which was slightly annoying, but the rooms were very comfortable and had clean bathrooms and good ceiling fans! The location was amazing for what we wanted...... More

We stayed in a 3 person room with our friend. The staff is very friendly, like everyone in Sri Lanka. The room was fine. Nothing super great or super bad so that's why I say totally adequate. The location was wonderful since we could walk to the beach and nearby restaurants. They also set up a driver for us to... More

Worst part is that the electricity just goes off every now and then. Plus they don't even have a back up generator. Not to mention a lot of mosquitoes. No toiletries. Towels stink. Slow wifi. Not many options in the in room dining menu. I ain't coming back !!!

Rooms large and spotlessly clean with TV, fridge and wardrobe. Loads of hot water. Definitely more than basic. Manager and staff very friendly and helpful. Buffet breakfast very good and includes fresh fruit and both western and Sri Lankan dishes. The quiet leafy suburb Mount Lavinia is a good place to stay away from noise and pollution of central Colombo.... More

Price was very good and includes a nice breakfast including fresh fruit and tea. All staff were very helpful and friendly which was a main positive of the... More

Stayed here for a night in early December of 2012. Nice quiet location within 5 mins walk to the beach / 10 mins walk to main road. We were given a refreshing welcome drink upon our arrival. Our room was on the top floor on the right as you come up the stairs. Nothing fancy - quite old but decent... More
