The place has no fancy frills.. But is perfect if you want to not spend so much and still have a decent clean place to live in. Pretty homely, but the best part about them is their staff.. Very sweet and accommodating, and not at all money minded. Would recommend for friends on a trip, not for couples.

Excellent location, just a stone throw from the beach (be careful when crossing the railway) with rooms spotless clean and superfast wi-fi. Maybe a bit tiny, but if you are meant to be there for the "beach life" you are supposed not to stay long in your hotel room. Staff is just fantastic: Always helpful and smiling. Food (dinner and...

Good and clean beds. Rather spacious rooms. AC working very well. Very close to beach, very nice staff. They should have more staff in the kitchen. Only one person for cooking and serving is too little. The man did his very best but we felt a bit sorry for him.

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
