I traveled around Sri Lanka for a month and this was the best hotel I found in the middle price range. It's by far the best value: large comfortable bed with clean sheets, AC and fan, hot water in the shower, fast WiFi, breakfast included, and a very friendly staff. The Mount Lavinia area is also quite nice, so I... More

We had a double room to ourselves, AC, en suite and a very comfortable and clean bed. The staff were brilliant. They were friendly, accomodating and always with a big smile. I definitely recommend Tropic Inn if you're lookong for a place in Mt Lavinia

Upon returning to Sri Lanka, we stayed here for a second time which should be enough to show how much we enjoyed staying here. The staff are very helpful and did everything to make our week stay here as comfortable as possible. It felt like living at home. Thanks again to the wonderful staff and we hope to stay at... More

This hotel is great value for money. Staff were very helpful and gave good advice on how to get to Colombo and where to go to see stuff. The room was cool enough that we decided to not have air-conditioning which is saying something! There are plenty of great restaurants down on the beach if you want to eat and... More

It got nice room and all the basic facilities needed are provided. Staffs were very friendly and just few minutes walk from the beach. You are offered with fresh just as you enter the inn which is very nice as you are tired by the time you reach the hotel.

Besides I didn't know how to organize my time in this beautiful island and the extremly nice and... More

For the price this place was better than what you'd expect. All the basics covered - the main guy was very accommodating, he gave us all sorts of directions and booked us tuk tuk. Even a cold orange juice when we arrived. Rooms are clean and comfortable, a little hot if you just get the fan (late June). Breakfast was... More
