Would never stay again!
Staff unhelpful and rude. No order was what i ordered. Bathroom for only short people so shower at shoulder hight with 2 inches to hitting ceiling in shower. Pool looks nice but water so hot, unpleasant. Beeakfast buffet a disaster no food replacement and 19 people waiting for egg station. They wanted people to share tables!! At $169 with tax why should I? People yelling in hallway at midnight and again at 5am for next 3 hours!! No staff asking them to be respectful. Even the cleaners started vacuuming at 8am outside my door!! What kind of hotel is this. I would NEVER recommend to anyone!!

One of the Best hotels to stay in Sri Lanka
I was staying in the Cinnamon Lakeside for 4 days. Our small group of three people enjoyed the stay in the hotel. The kitchen is beautiful, some restaurants and bars are available, no need to go outside, as prices and service as well as food taste is more than competitive. Laundry service is perfect, every clothe was packed in the separate package after being cleaned and pressed. All the staff is very friendly and ready to help with any questions. We came early in the morning but we were allowed to check-in before 12:00 PM without additional payment. Room was clean and bright. Highly recommended to stay in Colombo and very convenient for business people as the service is at a very high level. The restaurant is always full as the food is very tasty both a la carte menu and buffet.

Superb Hotel
We had our honeymoon and wedding at this hotel - 8 degrees on the lake boat. It was at a beautiful location with the lake and pool view. Mr Priyantha Banquets did an amazing job at making sure our wedding day was everything as we had planned. Thank you very much! Staff were very friendly and efficient. We had an amazing time here. Room was comfortable, spacious and clean. The buffet was amazing with so much variety. Priyantha at the dinning room made our breakfast a pleasant one. He gave us a good service even though it was a hectic 29th Jan morning there with 500 guests due for breakfast. We will be returning for our anniversary. Thank you all !!

Good location and staff
The service received on check in
I was very satisfied with the conditions, facilities and the service of the reception staff of the hotel. It was excellent in terms of facilities and location. A bit pricey and the rooms were a bit small for being classified as 5 star - More like a 4 star. Happy with my stay. Thank you.

Stay in Sri Lanka
Good location, clean hotel and good food
It was great until the President of Pakistan showed up. After the hotel tightened security n resulting in road traffic jams, the stay after that was a nightmare
