We spent the first night of our Sri Lanka trip at the Lake Lodge. After a long flight and an even longer taxi ride into the city with a taxi driver who seemed like he'd never been to Colombo before, this was the perfect spot to relax and recover. Because of the hotel's popularity, only the Garden Suite was available when we came to book - this is a really good choice, as it feels very private with it's own separate entrance and veranda. Dinner on our own private table was an early highlight of the trip! The room is very spacious and has everything you could need, comfortable bed, sofa, room service and a huge bathroom.
Breakfast was also very good the next morning, and we also found that the location was very convenient for exploring Colombo - an easy walk to the lake and Gangaramaya Temple, and a short tuk tuk ride from Galle Face Green & the Fort.
Highly recommended for a quiet, relaxing stay in the middle of the city. Just make sure you book early, and also find out exactly where it is on a map, as many tuk tuk & taxi drivers don't seem to know where it is!
