Very comfortable and cute hotel
We had a few days here and relaxed in the lounge and on rooftop with their tasty Sri Lankan breakfast! Very clean and tasteful rooms. A nice oasis to hang out in when you return from wandering around the busy streets of Colombo!

Welcoming, peaceful oasis with great staff

Helpful staff, comfort of rooms, close to everything
We had a wonderful time at Lake Lodge - staying for 6 nights at the start of our trip as well and returning for our final night before flying home. The staff were welcoming and ensured we were looked after well - in one instance they went out of our way to open the kitchen late one night when we had been caught up in wedding preparations most of the day and didn't have time to eat. We are particularly grateful for Ceela, Ravi and Raj's helpfulness and warmth during our entire stay.

Beautiful place and excellent service!

Food, service, rooms.
We had a brilliant time. The staff were amazing and couldn't do enough for you. Food was delicious, cocktails in the bar were lovely, and our room was beautiful. Would definitely return. We all thought it should be more than a 3 star!

An oasis in the midst of chaos

Staff, garden suite, food
Lovely all the way through although they could be more considerate with noise in rooms next to kitchen

Loved it

Lovely room, amazing staff and delicious food
We really enjoyed our two night stay. The rooms were lovely - great bathroom and amazingly comfortable bed. The staff and service were fantastic - it was my birthday while we were there and they surprised us with a birthday cake which was delicious and organised coffee and cake that afternoon. Highly recommend!

A nice but not exceptional stay

Location, style, breakfast
It is a nice hotel with a unique sense of style. The staff was attentive although we checked in late (with advance notice) and the gentleman who checked us in was brusque. The Sri Lankan breakfast is far superior to their regular offerings but must be requested the night before. We stayed in room number 4 and while we liked the room itself it is right next to the kitchen so when the staff are in there cooking at 6am; expect to hear everything through the uninsulated concrete walls. Fortunately jet lag had us up early but it is quite a lot of noise. Otherwise it is a nice hotel though possibly there are better hotels for the price.

Handsome, cozy hotel in the heart of Colombo

Cleanliness, location, design
First of all, the facade is stunning, as are the interiors. Luxury isn't the right word, but it is stylish and adheres to the tenets of Sri Lankan aesthetics. It's cozy, and the staff feel like extended, doting family members. Location is between the presidential palace and a beautiful lake, the ocean and a park are within walking distance, basically very central. Hygiene was out of this world -- not a speck of dust visible. Loved it.
