My stay here was perfect. It's in a central location and the family running the bed and breakfast are very friendly and helpful. I loved the serene atmosphere of the grounds and common area. The wifi and ac worked perfectly. I would definitely stay here again!!!

Once again we were treated to Sri Lankan hospitality in a stunning setting! Huge room with a/c, comfy bed and good bathroom facilities. Was really peaceful and a great hideaway from the hustle and bustle of Colombo. Great breakfast, good advice from the owners on places to visit and restaurants. One of the highlights during our stay in Colombo!

Perfect honeymoon getaway. Manoji and her family were very helpful and ensured that our stay was more than comfortable. Although food is not included in the plan, there are supermarkets around where you can go and explore. Also, the family makes you feel like you're one of them and give you royal treatment. I'll definitely come back here.

Nestled among trees, in a quiet section of Colombo, Highbury is a hidden gem. Great architecture, each room is a visual delight. In the common living space is a shallow pond with live fishes!!. Great place, even if one stays for just a single night. Friendly owners ensure that you have a great stay

Room Tip: Take a room on the back side which overlooks an old mango tree

Start off your dream vacation in the "Resplendent Island" Sri Lanka by staying at this wonderful spot.

Hospitality is #1: Manoja and Manitha are excellent hosts- I arrived late (11pm) and too tired to figure out the wifi for my computer so I could send a note to my folks; Manitha saw this and helped me right away even though he was on his way to bed. The breakfast prepared for me the next morning was an incredible display, too.

The room was well decorated and very comfortable, had AC, and a nice bathroom.

Highbury is off the beaten path, making it a peaceful place to stay. However, its proximity to a main road means you'll easily find three-wheeler taxis rushing to whichever destination you please.

Do yourself a favor and stay at Highbury.

It's a place like home but more romantic, stylish, artistic and quiet. The owner and daughters are friendly and thoughtful. Especially suitable for couples who are tired of the standard rooms. Kitchen available so that you can skip going to restaurants on your trip for one day. Will definitely come back to spend my weekend in here.

Highbury is where you find out what hospitality is all about. Host Manoji and family are so helpful and friendly. We stayed 3 nights in the suite room which accommodated 3 of us comfortably. A tranquil and homely atmosphere permeates throughout. No hesitation is recommending this place to stay whilst in Colombo. A 10 minute tuk tuk ride to the Fort area where there are many great restaurants, the lake area and Cinnamon Gardens.
