A Hotel With A History

The architecture of the hotel is simply brilliant. The staff across all levels were very professional and looked to please the guests. The view from the hotel room is breathtaking, especially at dawn
Overall, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the hotel. Although it is a heritage structure, the room decor as well as furniture and fittings can be brought into the 21st century.

Stay at Mount Lavinia Hotel

The location by the ocean, nothing else I can comment on
Not a very pleasant one. The staff were not very confident, especially the front desk, I spoke with a lady there to complain about the condition of my room. We booked 4 rooms, and 1 out of the 4 rooms was in a decent conditio0n and the remaining 3 was in a poor condition. The bathroom in the 3 rooms were in a very poor state, yet we were charged the same for all 4 rooms. When I protested to the lady at the front counter, all she did was grin and nod her head, and not say anything which really annoyed me. When we were having breakfast, we had to request to be served a few times, when the waiters would walk past us with the coffee and tea jugs. I expected that Agoda would have been more cognisant about their recommendation, but this was a very poor choice and was misrepresenting the truth. I truly would appreciate a refund for the money I paid as the conditions were far from expectations and the service had a lot to be desired for.

Watch the sun set over Indian ocean from balcony

Views, breakfast and suite
We were generouslyv given a beautiful suiite for the three of us and made good use of the balcony views. The breakfast is exceptional and the ambience around the colonial building and the pool setting is breathtaking. They graciously allowed us to stay late into the evening so we were able to enjoy dinner by the pool. Our luggage was safely stored away for us. A wonderful, special hotel

Stay away!

The Spa
bad service from staff, very old rooms in desperate need of renovation, entire hotel needs cleaning and renovation, extremely overpriced and overrated. Needs a much better pool and a lounging area, bad location! Not worth it one bit.
