This was my third visit to Lake Lodge and would definitely stay at this charming boutique hotel again without any doubt. Location wise it was perfect to where I wanted to go and the places I wanted to see whilst in Colombo. This time round I stayed in the garden suite which was fabulous as I had my own outdoor space in the form of a small patio and courtyard where I would have my breakfast in the mornings. It was a lovely way to start the day!
What puts Lake Lodge ahead of the rest of the hotels in Colombo for me is the staff and the way they looked after me and accommodated my requests in terms of what I wanted to have for breakfast when it was not on the menu. The food at this hotel is terrific. Having a Caipalanka cocktail on the upstairs terrace was the perfect end to the day. I feel I should say a special thank you to the manager Rizwan who went out of his way to accommodate my requests for my dietary requirements etc. I would also like to say a special thank you to all the staff, in particular Mohan and Ramesh, who really looked after me during my 9 day stay at this hotel.
