We had a pleasant 2 night stay at the kingsbury. It is well located right on the water, a short walk to the Galle Face Walk. The buffet breakfast included in the tariff offered a variety of Western and Sri Lankan breakfast items. The staff were attentive and except for entering and leaving my room, I did not open a door for myself; a staff member was always on hand to take on that burden. The pool area is relaxing, especially while watching the sunset. As mentioned in an earlier review, the area next to the hotel, near the pool, is under construction but that is a minor detraction from an otherwise relaxing area. My only suggestion for improvement would be more supervision of swimmers in the pool by hotel staff. Not all parents monitor their children in the pool nor may they be capable of rendering assistance should their child experience difficulty in the pool.
