A beautiful decorated place with lovely people. A perfect start after arriving in Colombo and you want a bit of rest. Lovely garden.

Worst ever
It was the worst place I have ever stayed in, this place was infested with cockroaches, spiders, mosquito, to name a few The linen smelt of stale sweat, the food is prepared in a dirty shed, this place needs to be investigated by the tourist department before someone fall seriously sick, it is poorly run, and the business people that visited me was equally appalled at the conditions, I am still in shock,

Classy highbury
I only spent one night at this place but when I got there, I regretted not spending at least 3 nights! I am not a city girl so I usually don't like to stay in busy cities but if you are coming home to a place like Highbury, then your tiredness from the rustle and bustle from roaming the city is alleviated. Nice ambience, and nice owners! I love that there is a small fish pond. What I don't like is that there are some bugs and mosquitoes. So better have some insect repellant with you!

Quiet oasis in hectic Colombo
The staff were very attentive, helpful and friendly. The breakfast was delicious, we arrived from Australia early in the morning, serving us breakfast after the normal breakfast time was not a problem. They organised us airport pick up and train station drop off, both going very well. The overall property was a quiet oasis in busy Colombo, beautiful lounge area and gardens. Although our room was clean and tidy a little smaller than we anticipated. The congenial manner of our hosts is the lasting memory we will take away. We would recommend as a place to stay

Had a nice time
Nice place to stay and not so far to reach the places to be in Colombo.

Garden, quiet location.
I was under the impression that this was a 3 star hotel and apparently it is only 2. We initially booked for one night and then booked another as I read in a couple of reviews that they weren't happy about late check outs. As we booked the second night later we understood that we had to change rooms. However, when we returned to the hotel at 3 pm our room wasn't ready and we were told we would only have to wait 10 minutes. In actual fact we waited nearly an hour. Considering the wait it might have been nice if we had been offered a glass of water!!!! As this is a family run hotel I would have thought we might have been greeted more warmly.

Stay at the Highbury
The place is quiet, green, well designed and nearby to the city center.
When we first arrived we were charmed by the lovely place. We booked a room by agoda website, for a particular room in the main building. The room was not available for the first night, so we had to take another one, obviously not cleaned and hosted by mosquitos. For the second night, we get a room, lovely but who is supposed to clean the room when new guests arrive?? Not the staff for sure ! Anyway, I try to be blind to the dust on the floor and behind the frame, a nice batik by the way and enjoy my stay there... But the next morning, I am awakened from my sleep at six am by a private and loud conversation, that the owner has with her mother. As she ignores how thin the wall is for the room they gave us outside of the main building. That evening, we came back around ten pm, and we're surprised to find the lobby already closed. I am even not talking about the lack of service, no blanket, no key to access the lobby, etc... And finally, when we are about to pay for the airport pick up (which is more expensive than taking a taxi from the airport, by the way), we are asked for an extra 100 rp because the currency rate they use is actually higher than the exchange rate at the airport. Fair enough only if we felt for the 4 days stay that the main concern of the owner is to be sure that her guests are actually having a pleasant stay. Money money money...

Poor lighting. No dining option
Good location. low cost.
It was average and I will not recommend. I have booked a family suite. this room should be avoided as this an old room on the back of a villa with poor lighting and a narrow passage. There are other rooms which are in the main building that looked OK. We were not offered the food options and can not comment on them.
