During the last 10 days I travel a lot to Colombo, this days cmb have a lot of new vast and prestige hotels to offer. Sadly to say the hotel rooms are now a bit old and needs renovation- too much noisy from the next door room. The other hotels facilities and the staff are more thank great! Use at... More

The rooms are clean and spacious. Loved the ambiance. Most of the staff are really friendly while a few seem to be a bit judgmental! For an instance; my friends drove into the hotel in their Range Rover, while I arrived in a tuk tuk (cos I had to get off to buy some meds for one of my friends,... More

we had our wedding reception here which has lovely. We were upgraded to a suite which was a lovely surprise, however there was an issue with the bathroom which was stinking. We asked for someone to come and look it and no one did. However the issue came when checking out. It took almost an hour! There were numerous issues.... More

Great hotel, very good location Can get very crowded in season. Our room on the executive floor was thus very suitable for a quiet evening drink or if you want a quick breakfast. Great service there as well.

We have just returned from a week's stay at the Cinnamon Lakeside. We had read a lot of good reports about the hotel but as we had not been to Sri Lanka before we did not know if they were justified or not. Now we do!!!!!! We had a room on the Executive Floor (7th floor) which faced the lake.... More

Stayed here for two nights and liked it very much. The hotel is in a great location, the staff very friendly, the breakfast buffet was the best that I saw in Sri Lanka (the best fish curry by far), the evening buffet was nice, the other restaurants serve nice food, too. The pool is great, the gym nicely equipped. The... More

This is a first class hotel located conveniently in the centre of town. The staff are very friendly and helpful and willing to sort out any kind of issue that a guest may raise. Breakfast is very nicely provided with lots to choose from, good service and decent coffee (the latter being a rarity in some places around here…). The... More

Positives: attractive public areas, good sized swimming pool (and no problem getting a sun lounger), excellent rooms (very large) with nice bathrooms, good TV choice, strong wifi, good air-con. Negatives: a big one - location. Nothing at all in immediate vicinity of hotel. It's a 10-15 minutes walk to the old town and about 20-25 minutes to Galle Face Green.... More

This is a huge, but in many ways working hotel. They have key cards to the elevators, which is important safety factor in big hotels like this. We were given upgrade to 7th floor, which I want to thank you for the hotel. We requested extended stay until 6 pm, but they couldn't accommodate us until 4 pm. This was... More
