the owner is a lovely lady. happy to help you out whenever needed. the room was basic, you get a bedroom in a 3 bedroom house. communal kitchen, hot showers, AC rooms. great location, just a 5 minute walk from the beach. a lot of nice bars and restaurants in the area too.

Good sized room, clothes drying rack good. Clean sheets, beds a bit short (I'm 5ft 8 and had to sleep diagonally to stop my feet hanging off the end of the bed). Mattresses thin and firm but ok. Security cupboard to leave valuables could be opened with a firm pull even when locked which was poor. Room was fairly secure... More

I chose to stay here after its good reviews, but I didn't feel welcomed. I was standing outside for 20 minutes and had to go next door to ask the owners there how to get in (this was after a 17hr flight and in the full heat of the sun). When I was finally shown to my room I was... More

The owner is a very friendly, flexible and accommodating lady. The room itself was comfortable and clean. The homestay is close enough to a major bus stop and many restaurants, albeit quite far from the heart of Colombo city. Guests may also use the kitchen which is well-equipped. This place is clearly a comfortable and functional homestay, not a fancy... More

I've stayed at many other guest homes and budget hotels in Mount Lavinia and none compare to homeliness and comfort of Priyani's home. She's a very sweet and kind lady, who's been extremely helpful during our numerous stays. We... More

I stayed Mount Lavinia Homestay with my business partner four months ago as I had some business obligations nearby. We stayed for 6 days here. We choose Mount Lavinia Homestay as it had good bus connectivity (a bus stop is about 100 meters from here) and it is just half a kilometer from Mount Lavinia railway station. The rooms here...
