Highbury provides a beautiful escape from the hurly burly of Colombo. In a lovely residential area but close enough to all the central attractions.
The house and gardens are lovely and there is some great art - and the overall feeling is one of tranquility.
BUT..... the room we had had definitely seen better days - the fridge was a bit rusty and things fell out when you opened then door - and service was really disappointing too.
When we arrived we were told that there was no key to our apartment as the previous guests had left with it (which was fair enough) but five hours later the owner still hadn't got us a replacement which meant we had to go out for the evening and leave our room with all our valuables unlocked.
Breakfast was also off-hand. We were given just one cup of coffee, we had to make our own toast and the only cooked food we were offered was cold scrambled eggs left over from previous guests.
A real shame - as it had the potentail to be a fab place to stay!
