This was the sixth and final hotel we visited over 2 weeks in SL - whilst they were all refreshingly different with their own usps, this was the best! A lovely old doctor's house, close to the heart of town but an oasis of tranquility. The old feel of the place had been wonderfully maintained, the public spaces airy and calm with antique furniture throughout, with a sympathetic extension at the back to create a superb courtyard with pool and dining area. Our room opened onto the courtyard and was cool and spacey, with large bathroom and small private garden at the back. The staff were uber-polite, calm and attentive. The food was great - the widest breakfast choice, all superbly prepared, and we had one excellent dinner there. The hotel is small which means it keeps the personal touch - it's also clearly popular with locals so has a charming busyness about it. A fantastic end to our holiday - would give it six stars if the system allowed!

What an oasis in such a hectic city. We were here on the the last leg of a 2 week tour of the island and really enjoyed it. It’s a beautiful old colonial building with an interesting history. Lovely courtyard and swimming pool, Great food, fabulous bedrooms and caring staff. Can’t praise it enough

Maniumpathy is a fabulous base for exploring Colombo. Located in a historic heritage home in the elegant Cinnamon Gardens district, the hotel has lovely rooms and suites featuring an attractive colonial style decor, family heirlooms, antiques and excellent modern amenities. The suites have nice sitting areas and private balcony areas or quiet back garden terraces. My suite had a huge bathroom with a large shower and a claw foot soaking tub. There is also a lovely shared pool in the garden, on the other side is the restaurant, beautifully lit in the evening. The cuisine is refined, delicious and has both international and local specialities. The hotel is very peaceful, away from the hubbub and traffic, yet only a short drive away from shops and sites. I hope to return!

Maniumpathy is a couple of km away from the sea-front and the main attractions, and we found it an oasis of calm after the chaos of the city. Only 7 rooms I believe, and we looked at a few of them as well as of course the one we stayed in, which was quite the best room I may ever have stayed in: large bed, beautiful mahogany writing cabinet, huge bathroom with his-and-hers sinks - really quite wonderfully presented. Staff were excellent, as were the breakfasts. We had a lovely stay here.
