A nice little spot, near the train station and beach. We were lucky to be accommodated last minute when other accommodation we organised fell through. The team were very friendly, chatty and helpful during our two days. A comfortable room, with a nicely styled downstairs area. About 15 - 30 minutes on the train to Colombo Fort (depending on the stops).

Neville and his family are running the place in a way that makes you feel right at home! It is clean and safe and at 5 minutes walk from the famous Mt Lavinia Hotel. The railway station is close as well making it is easy to get into Colombo town or travel south. We have stayed at the L.H. several times whenever in Sri Lanka.

Beautiful house, large comfortable bed and room. Staff were welcoming, friendly and helpful. Short walk to beach, train station and great cafes. This was our second time staying here and I would stay again in the future.  It was just excellent staying in this place. two nights but comfortable and clean. Everything about this place was just amazing.

We spent five nights at the lavinia house and we had a lovely time there. We interacted with the owner Nevile, staff and the also the other guest. The place allows you to store your meals if you like to cook. It was is a minute walk to the beach. Station, supermarkets and restaurants. We had a big Room and it’s really clean. Bed was so comfortable and shower was good with hot water, very smart clean bathroom. The common area has a lovely decor and daylight. Great value for money!
