Anjalendran - airy, semi-open to the outdoors and with an overall very calming and peaceful vibe. The whole place is comfortably furnished, including the bedroom, with a large bed, ample closet space, bathroom with hot shower and free wi-fi. They also provide... More

'Mount Lodge' is a comfortable and charming home with lovely light filled living areas that look on to greenery . Our hosts Gamini and Padmini could not do enough for us , preparing hearty breakfasts (Love the hoppers ! ) and greeting us with a cuppa after our tuk tuk excursions into Colombo. The location is ideal, next door to... More

Staying here is seriously like staying with family-except in a beautifully designed Bawa style home. The couple that run this place for the owners are just so lovely. Nothing is too much to ask. If you can manage to book the top level suite or deluxe suite, do so. It's so worth the treat. And if you are a hopper... More

Our group were warmly welcomed by our delightful hosts, Padmini and Gamani. Nothing was too much trouble for them. Each morning we ate a delicious breakfast at the beautifully set table. I highly recommend the hoppers! The accommodation is great , our group of 5 was very comfortable in the spacious bedrooms with adjoining bathrooms and lounge areas. A Bawa... More

Very warm greeting and fantastic Sri Lankan breakfast. Had the top floor with own living area and space. A little tricky to find but basically on hotel road right next door to an Italian restaurant on the corner. Owners could not do enough to make us welcome. Very relaxing, clean and comfortable. Wifi a little hit and miss

Spent 7 hours traveling to reach this wonderful oasis,the A6 was been resurfaced for most of its length from Sigiriya and then we hit rush hour in Colombo.this was our final leg of cycling ,with the occasional cheating with lifts. The gem is located behind a gated doorway and to be honest we were not certain it was the correct... More

If you are looking for an authentic, clean and beautiful SriLankan experience in Colombo, mount Lavinia, then this is a wonderful find and a special place to stay. The architecture of this little B&B makes it feel as though the home is breathing. Pockets of lights and air punctuate through out and allow for a tropical feel to a "home... More

We had booked for 1 night but ended up staying for 4. We were graciously accommodated at last minute in the beautiful Mount Lodge. Padmini and Gamani were wonderful hosts - the breakfasts were spectacular. We would certainly recommend Mount Lodge!
