We immensely enjoyed our stay at Mount Lodge (21 Feb to 16 March). The apartment was absolutely beautiful and comfortable and the location is quite convenient. Gamini and Padmini were amazing hosts and made our stay so comfortable and memorable. We visited and had meals at a number of places in Sri Lanka (including hotels and friends and relatives). Gamini’s... More

This is a fantastic choice of acccomodation if you are looking for a relaxing and boutique style atmosphere in mount lavinia which are lacking in the bigger and less personal hotels nearby. We stayed in Sri Lanka two weeks and the food Mr Gamini and his wife served us was by far the most delicious Sri Lankan cuisine we tasted.... More

We loved staying here on our first night in Sri lanka - lovely air conditioned rooms, fab bathrooms and great food and hospitality. I would recommend it at the start or end of your holiday. The meal was gorgeous, freshly cooked and healthy and breakfast also very good with the best toast in Sri lanka.

We had a wonderful stay at Mount Lodge - it was for just one night but unforgettable. I booked at Mount Lodge after reading reviews for it on i-escape.com and I'm so glad I did! Mr Gamini, the property caretaker was on hand to receive us at the airport, which was a nice welcoming touch considering we had just arrived... More

Only stayed hear for one night on our arrival into Colombo before heading off with family for a "Homecoming". Fantastic Hosts, good sized clean room and ensuite. For breakfast we enjoyed a lovely home cooked srilankan meal which was in the guests option. Would stay here again if I was to return to Colombo.

Extremely welcoming and helpful staff. Very comfortable rooms and a well decorated and looked after small hotel. Location is good though there isn't much happening in nearby its ideal as a stop off on the way in and/or out of Sri Lanka

A great intimate beautifully furnished guesthouse. The managing couple waited for us at arrival and showed us our simple but very comfortable room on the first floor. There's a great lounge area and a terrace too to relax and watch movies if you want. The delicious breakfast was served downstairs, it was one of the best in Sri Lanka, the... More

We stayed here in January 2013 at the end of our trip to Sri Lanka. Having stayed in plenty of hotels during our trip we chose Mount Lodge for something a bit more homely and for a taste of traditional Sri Lanka. Upon booking we were looked after very well by Ben who organised transfers, recommended itineraries etc. At Mount... More

Mount Lodge is wonderfully intimate. Small, beautifully laid out and furnished it's just down the road from the Mount Lavinia hotel where you can use the pool. The husband and wife team on-site are attentive, friendly and very helpful. The food is really good.
