Ariadne L. Couples Sri Lanka, May 20, 2016
Wind-down in Colombo
At the end of our Sri Lankan adventure we needed to treat ourselves and found the Lake Lodge by Taru. And man, were we treated! From the moment of arrival to the moment of departure were we kindly, attentively yet never intrusively tended to. The staff did everything possible to make us feel welcomed, and what we could gather from any kind of interactions, honored their guests. Food was delicious and clean despite being a bit pricey. Choices were limited still sufficient. The staff rightfully adorn themselves with service excellence. The ground floor rooms are quite dark and the proximity to the kitchen and therefore early morning activity does get a little noisy, so do the doors of the other rooms when being slammed by other unaware guests. Sound-proofing or insulation would definitely help with that. The rooms are well-equipped and carefully designed, although a better mattress would def upgrade the sleep experience at Lake Lodge by Taru. All in all, we spent two lovely days and nights there. Thank you!

Good service
We loved the privacy at garden suites. And center of the city.

Simply excellent
This is the perfect place for those who want a small hotel run with great attention to detail. Nice facilities, spotlessly clean, friendly and helpful staff, and the Sri Lankan food cooked on site is fantastic.

Nice little charming boutique hotel
We spent one night over in Colombo and Lake Lodge was perfect for us. It's a little boutique property off the main road with plenty of privacy away from the crowd but yet still within the city in Colombo. Don't expect full facilities though, but if you want the experience of spending a night at a homely and cosy place without paying through your nose, this is a place to consider.

Perfect in every way.
Lake Lodge is perfect. The rooms are beautifully designed, as is the whole complex. Every staff member is attentive to your needs. They could not be better. The breakfasts were also delicious. I will be back to stay. It is one of the best places I have stayed.

Great design, smell in the room, bad sound-prove,
I like location, and design of this place. I stayed on the ground floor. The smell in the room kept me awake, and early in the morning I was woke up by all sorts of noise from the kitchen and common space, which was unpleasant.

Quiet Location in the Centre of Colombo

Modern design & decor, location -able to walk to many attractions close by, friendly staff
Very pleasant three days/two nights there. Convenient to have dinner on outside patios. Loved the "Welcome" frozen popicles. A couple of minor issues: very noisy AC, toilet flushing - hit and miss, some communication issues when ordering from menus.
