I and my best half stayed in this place for 2 nights and it was the most amazing place we have stayed in Colombo. The secret path to the wine cellar is a must to see. The staff are so kind and the place is a few minutes away from the beach.
They monitored my health condition about 4 times a day and supply the medicine in correct time.That was a plus point for me as a covid patient. Food was OK but not best. Room condition is not worth for money.It was a old room .I saw many fungus areas in the room.Only plus point was room is facing to the sea. Staff was friendly and helpful.
Stayed in Mount lavinia Hotel from 26th November 2020 to 10th December 2020 for Quarantine. Very old hotel. Room is not well presented. Very old and not renovated. Not clean. Taste and quality of food is very poor. They serve very small quantity as room service and not enough. Even the yogurt they serve is of very poor quality. Not a standard one available in Sri Lanka. Service of the hotel is not matching to its star class. Not worth for the money at all. Only positive I saw is its minor staff is very helpful and trying their best to help guests.
When we can we travel regularly to Sri Lanka to visit family. This was our second stay in the hotel the last one being in 2017. The hotel still has a lot of offer its guests such as beautiful scenery, great restaurants offering traditional Sri Lankan food, fresh seafood and western food such as burgers & chips, the staff are pleasant and polite and there is a beautiful private beach. However the hotel is in need of refurbishment as the corridors/ hallways leading to the rooms are looking drab- walls need painting and carpets need replacing . The rooms desperately need refurbishing - new carpets , updated decor and new bathrooms. The rooms really are a let down and for us would be a reason for not returning here in the future which is a shame as we like everything else about the hotel so please update them!…
I was quarantined here for two weeks with my mom and sister. We wish to commend the staff for their tireless efforts and sacrifices they made to ensure our safety and comfort throughout our stay. They provided a great service in all aspects. We also wish to give Mr Asela from fine-dining a special shout out for readily catering to our special meal requests and cooking us delicious food that we enjoyed. It is much appreciated. However, some improvements can definitely be made with regards to the conditions of the room interior to make it look more aesthetically pleasing. For example, some of the walls were damp. Furthermore, the wifi connection was very poor and this caused us some inconvenience as we had to attend virtual seminars and lectures.
Gotta say, this place really disappoints. I got one of the new rooms facing the ocean so that's a plus but that's about it. Carpets had these orange stains, I don't know what those are but they really don't look clean. There is dust behind the toilet and water damage in the ceiling of the toilet. The nearby train basically forces me to wake up early in the morning because the rooms aren't soundproof, the A/C is loud and the room in general doesn't look great. There are far cheaper hotels providing a better service, unfortunately, I was not lucky enough to get into one of those for quarantine.
Their buffet is a vast spread including international and local cuisine. They have in door and out door seating arrangements according to your preference. Food was delicious and ambience was superb for a romantic dinner as well as for a family. Staff is very helpful and they are happy to help you whenever you need any assistance. Don't forget to make a reservation before you go.
Nice hotel with classy look both outside and inside. Hotel is nice and clean and well maintained. Has spacious function hall,stairs and corridors. One side of the hotel faces ocean. Went here for a wedding function. Food was great. Staff is well trained, helpful.
Absolutely Excellent Services received from A-Z. Please do not hesitate to stay at This hotel as We recommended highly to anyone. (Our last visit was July-August 2019) Thank you and best Wishes Prasad Siriwardena
OK, I shall declare this upfront, I have been visiting the Mount Lavinia Hotel, on and off, for almost 18 years ! So it is safe to say I like it a lot. I had the opportunity to visit again last October (2019) and have to say it did not disappoint. From the moment of arrival, the welcome was immense. Amazingly many members of staff re-introduced themselves to us - remembering us from our last visit. The rooms were really comfortable. The Service was excellent. The Food was fantastic ! The Sea Food Cove gets a particular mention - amazing food ! I hope that I can return again !
