Booked executive club level room and very happy we did. Arrived early in the morning and were very grateful to be given our room straight away.

I can choose from 5 dining retaurants in the Hotel and it never gets boring, no matter how long I stay. The terrase view over the lake gives you a rest from the vibrant city arround. In the end I enjoy sitting at the counter in the lounche, listening to the music, meeting other guests and enjoying Mr.Dassanayake's Sushi recommendation....

Left my phone accidentally in the porch premises of the hotel; the security staff inclusive of Mr Dilan Fernando, Mr Ananda Ratnayake and Mr Hettiarachchie were professional and efficient in ensuring that the phone was returned to the right owner. My sincere gratitude.

Cinnamon Lakeside is a terrific property. Had a great experience. The best was the staff at the executive club lounge that made our stay something special with their service. Special mention to Sanjeewa, Lucky, Nishantha, Akalanka, Gayani and Lasith. Would not hesitate to come here again.

Stayed on the executive level for my time in Colombo. Shannon was working the reception for that level and was an amazing host. Shannon made our trip so much better! We only speak English and he was very easy to understand and had no translation issues.

This was a lovely stay. A good hotel, close to the train station, which is very convenient to take the early train to Kandy. A special thank you to Mr Lucky from the 7th floor lounge, who was very helpful and gave us good advices for our visit.
