Wong M. Solo travelers Hong Kong, July 31, 2015
A good sister hotel to Cinnamon Grand

Location, staffs, dining
I enjoyed coming here for coffee with friends before, so I decided to book to stay this trip. I wasn't disappointed at all. The superior room had been renovated and felt more like deluxe room. Front desk staffs were courteous, so was the bell boys. I liked the surroundings of the hotel, nice pool and lounge. Although comparing to the Grand, which is the other Cinnamon hotel in Colombo, this one has more a relaxed and resort kind of feel. To say it's 5 star may be stretching a bit too far, 4 or 4.5 stars. All in all, a nice choice if they are offering good deals.

Moderate hotel

wifi and the availability of drivers ready to take you everywhere
Overall stay was fine except that I felt cheated when I was given a late check-out till 8pm. It was chargeable at half day's rate for that late check-out request and the Manager insisted he had told me! I would have check-out earlier if I knew about this.

Great stay

Comprehensive Facilities which you would expect from a 5*. Helpful staff. Conveniently located.
It was the end of our visit to Galle and were due to fly out of Colombo. Rather than the 3+ hrs drive to the airport we chose to stay overnight at the Lakeside. It is less than an hours drive from the hotel making it a less stressful journey. As Siri Lanka Rupees are unconvertible we did not want to be left with lots of unusable currency. No problem the hotel set it up so everything went on the bill including the cost of the taxi so on the morning of the departure it went seamlessly. So if you are in a similar situation give yourself a treat and stay at the Cinnamon Lake for your last night, well worth it.

excellent 5 star hotel

comfort and facilities
The Cinnamon Lakeside is a genuine 5 star hotel with everything you would expect - large comfortable rooms, international TV options, free internet, great buffet breakfast. Location is near Beira Lake in the north of the city in between Fort & Petta to the north and the area around the park to the south. Easy to get about by tuktuk. Checking in and out can be slow and they have a disco that can be noisy at night.

Cinnamon Lakeside sécurité

Morning breakfast buffet
Mixed feelings. I had a nasty fall on a wet surface : the stairs in the garden leading to the lake. Very limited visibility and a wet staircase and garden path, and no handrail on the stone staircase made my walk to the boat on the lake very dangerous. Some safety aspects are not addressed at all and when an accident happens, the guest is left to himself and made fully responsibe of the incident. The hotel manager refuses to acknowledge responsibility and doesn't offer any compensation apart from a few bottles of water, some fruit, a free taxi drive and a free dinner. All these measures don't really address the real issues : the shock and distress nor the seriousness of the possible long term consequences of the accident. An adequate and immediate offer to take you to see a doctor in the emergency service of a nearby hospital was not considered.

Comfortable stay for doing business...

Location, food and facilitoes
Overall a pleasant stay. The hotel is a little old and the staff - though very polite - seems to be stuck in the colonial era. They are eager to please but a stickler for rules and not willing to be flexible to help the guests.
