We stayed at Lake Lodge on our last night as it was convenient for the airport and we had a very early start.
The location is good at the end of a quiet lane but within walking distance of the lake and Galle Face. We didn't eat at Lake Lodge but came back after our walk, having eaten out at The Inn on the Green, and sat on the roof terrace with some cold beers and watched bats flying overhead.
On our early departure (5.00 am) we were given a packed breakfast. We found the staff to be very helpful and friendly and would recommend this accommodation for a short stay.
