My family and I had an enjoyable stay at Colombo In the City Motel. Very clean and comfortable accommodation. Our room was equipped with the kitchen utensils and breakfast meals were provided in our room prior to our late arrival at the motel.

We needed one night to watch the Crusaders game. This was the perfect place . We requested and got two adjoining rooms as there was two couples. We flew in from Palmy North. Very well appointed above average facilities. Decent extractor in bathroom. Only downside was there was no A/C. It might get too hot in summer for us.

We loved our stay at Colombo in the City. Our host was super helpful. Our two bedroom unit was perfect for a family of four. The teens loved the free wi-fi and the Mum loved the spa bath. Very comfortable beds. So close to everything. Easy to walk everywhere. Would absolutely stay here again.

The room was clean and very well appointed, and housekeeping came through each day to make up the room and replenish stocks of toiletries and biscuits (very important!). The location is excellent.

The loft has a double and single bed. TVs both up and downstairs. The city centre is within walking distance (15-20 min). There are a few good restaurants nearby too. High speed wifi.... More
