Shreeniwas V. Business travelers India, June 5, 2015
Functional but not attractive

Location, Access to beach, Food Options
I often travel to Colombo for business work. I had been told that Mt. Lavinia Hotel is among the best hotels in town and since this time the price was about the same as my normal choices, I decided to give it a shot. I found the location very good, right next to the beach, and apart from the sound of the waves, it is quite calm. I took a Direct Ocean View room and as promised I found the room and the balcony opening right to the view of the water and the view is in fact quite appreciated. Breakfast on all days was pleasant with a fairly good variety, lots of sitting space and friendly staff. Where I was disappointed was that despite the reputation, the interiors of the hotel and rooms come off just about average, nowhere close to attractive. The room, and the fittings felt very dated and I had to struggle quite a bit with the bathroom fittings to make them work. There is also a problem that the rooms have an odd stench - perhaps related to the salty water. It wasn't unbearable, but I would rather have a bit of fragrance in a hotel, than the smell of salt water. All in all, it wasn't disappointing as such, but I would rather prefer a refurbished hotel with chic interiors, better smelling rooms than what I find now.

back in time, forward in quality

food, location,general ambience
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. It is an unusual hotel with traditional infrastructure which cannot be changed without spoiling the whole. So that is part of its charm. The beds were comfy, the room adequate, apart from light for reading, all the staff are excellent and friendly the view of the sea is wonderful and the food is superb. It is worth paying the price for the service you get.

What a hotel !

Great location, friendly staff and wonderful food all set in a historic building overlooking the sea.
From the doorman's friendly welcome to the superb food the Mt Lavinia Hotel surpassed all our expectations. An island of sanity in the madness that is Colombo. Do yourself a favour and stay there for at least a couple of nights.

Old hotel

Food, staff, location
Old hotel, most of staff are old. Bed was not good. Staff very friendly.
Sammi Y. Couples Hong Kong, May 29, 2015
Only concern is the hotel is too old.

Staff are very friendly nice and helpful. Good is nice. The view is gorgeous
The lift was a very old one. The lobby looked nice but the corridors were old and smelly. The AC in room was smelly as well. I guess these are because the hotel is too old. However, the staff were very very kind nice friendly and helpful. I was staying in the ocean view room type and the view from room was amazing. I requested late check out in the evening. Overall was good but hope the hotel seek improvement in cleanness and scent.

Good place to relax

Big room, great breakfast & friendñu staff
stayed from this hotel from 8-11 May..I just find it too far from the airport. The room is good clean and very comfy bed. Location wise, if you intent to relax and to stay in the hotel this is a great spot. But if you intend to look a around the area, you will need to get a tuktuk to get to main city and will take about 20mins ride.. Overall the place is good place to relax.
