Not the fanciest or most modern hotel in Colombo but what history, what ambience. Stay in the old wing and fall asleep to the sound of waves crashing on the cliff below. Extremely friendly and responsive staff and the breakfast buffet is to die for. An amazing smorgasboard of delights. Make sure you sample the various sri lankan menu options...

We did not stay here but if you book a Sunday buffet lunch for 3,100 rupees you can use the pool and sun loungers. It give a pleasant view over the bay from the pool deck with the train track near by.

We did not stay here but went there for lunch and sat at the Governer's cafe facing the pool. Its an amazing location and the colonial feel is really nice. We found the food and service to be fairly good as well. Had we known about this hotel when we made our reservations, we would most definitely have stayed here....
