Best stay in Colombo so far

the room, the gardens & common areas, the staff
Highbury Colombo is very beautiful & relaxing. Loved our room & the hotel. The staff were very friendly and attentive & would recommend hotel. We're definitely going to stay at Highbury (if available) for our next visit.

Great little hideaway

Quiet location, very friendly and helpful staff, clean and comfortable rooms
I ended up in Sri Lanka by accident, and made a last minute booking with Highbury. Could not have been happier. The rate was extremely reasonable. the facilities are lush and comfortable, and the area is very quiet but also a quick ride to downtown. The staff was very helpful and even gave me a ride to the airport very early in the morning to catch my flight. It was a great part of my trip to Sri Lanka!

Home Stay Feeling

Location , surroundings and Owner is friendly
This is the first time I stayed in the House in Sri Lanka. Owner was friendly though there was hiccups on the first night I've arrive the place after 11pm casue there is misunderstanding of my booking didn't reach them. Am planning to have some ex-coleaue and friends to meet me , am expecting to have the suite - sitting room to have a nice chat , but end up we need to meet up in the garden and I got more than 50+ insects bite.. haha .. A very good experience. My flight is in the late midnight flight , Though I've check out on noon , still am staying till very late and I got to leave a luggage for my friends, Owner is very very helpful .. Got to visit them in my next trip, too. Overall, it's a very good place to stay.

Minimal hosting

Main building is nicely designed it check were the room you are getting is located
This is a b&b. The guy didn't speak any English, so we couldn't communicate. We understand someone else does but they were not in that day. I'm not sure we were given the right room that we had paid for but there was no way to check. Ground floor rooms feel damp and there are plenty of insects in the rooms. Poor wifi. Peaceful location but far from most places you want to see in Colombo. In hindsight we would pay slightly more and go to a hotel, not a guesthouse.

Stay like a local with a local

location, food and family
I did not know what to expect when I got to Highburg with 9 family members. The home is beautiful. The location was just perfect. The hosts were extremely kind. Not only did they tolerate a noisy child, they also cooked us an excellent meal at very short notice. We were weary from from our travels and this was the perfect place to unwind. There is nothing rushed or stuffy about Highburg. It's a gorgeous home and feels like one.

Lovely peaceful spot to stay in Colombo

Clean, peaceful, beautifully designed
This is a lovely house in a nice area of Colombo. Elegantly designed and very peaceful. Breakfast was good and we felt it was a good choice if you need to spend time in Colombo.

Woinderful little haven

serenity, comfortable rooms, beautiful place
great place to spend the night after facing the chaos of colombo. house was really comforting and quite despite being in the noisy city. Owners were really helpful and friendly. Little far off from the city centre but a tuktuk solves that easily for a very small price. Really wonderful place
