Just three rooms a stones throw from the action at Mt Lavinia this small design hotel has great home cooked meals friendly management and lovely architecture. I chose the upstairs suite which has its own living area ideal for longer stays.

Loved the layout and decor of this large house with 4 guest rooms. Nice lounge areas to relax and small terraces to chill on. Polished concrete floors, lots of planters, nice furniture. Our room had 2 queen sized beds pushed together, mosquito net, thin hard mattress with sheet and thin but heavy duvet. I found the bed to be comfortable,... More

After a very hectic peak hour trip from the airport we were so pleased to finally arrive at Mt Lodge. Gamini greeted us with a big friendly smile and gave us an umbrella for our quick stroll outside while it was pouring rain.

My wife and I stayed for 2 nights as part of our honeymoon. We could not have been happier with our choice to stay. The couple running the place are just the sweetest, friendliest people you will ever meet.

We very much enjoyed the architecture and interior (and gardens!) of this small hotel. There is only 3 rooms; but each of them has some extra "living room" or balcony space, so you are really private. Bathrooms are large and beds, too. And very comfortable. This house looks quite modest from outside, but the whole new world opens to you,... More
