Never disappoints

Location, Beautiful Rooms, colonial ambiance
I'll keep this short: Mt Lavinia Hotel is in a class of its own. Reminiscent and staying try to its colonial heritage I have never been disappointed staying here. Place to relax, unwind and reflect on the past and energize the mind for the future. Highly recommended.

Overrated average hotel

Location, right on the beach. That's all I can think of! !!
Stayed in the hotel for two nights with family of four. It is a totally over rated hotel. Very poor rooms and extremely dated. Poor maintenance. Rooms were not ready at time of check in and porters had no communication skills in English. It took more than one hour after check in and repeated calls to the front desk and housekeeping to connect the adjoining rooms. Bathrooms are average. Buffet breakfast options average. Poor quality of service in the restaurants. Will never recommend this hotel to anyone looking for five star hotel experience

Tasty food, super location, rooms only ok

Location, food, sea view
I stayed with my wife two nights in this hotel. First night we ate a la carte, really good food, second night we joined the daily changing duffet-style dinner, also very tasty and much choice. The location is superb, the sea views are great. The staff is not too polite, the help you but we were missing some smiles....The rooms ( we had booked Deluxe Room) are old inside and need definitively a total refurbishment. It is the look of the seventies, also the bathroom needs a face-lift... Definitively NO 5 star hotel nowadays anymore. As a 4 starshotel is would be okay.

Possibly the most beautiful hotel we've stayed in

The Architeture. The Rooms. The view.
We stayed here for two nights at the end of the trip and this hotel was perfect. The hotel itself is stunning to look at and the view of the beach and shoreline from the pool and bar area is breathtaking. Being monsoon season, it was beautiful watching the waves roll in and crash on the rocks. The lighting of the palm trees at night and subtle lighting of the hotel is equally as impressive. Our room was spacious, clean and just what we needed after 3 weeks of running around. Room service was great and cable tv appreciated with the cricket on ;) Seaside view was to die for. The private beach is a bit strange but the Mount Lavinia area is a gorgeous suburb feel where you get a taste for Sri Lankan life but away from the hectic nature of the city itself. We didn't make it to the turtle hatchery nearby but that sounded cute as well. Nearby Bixton St Cafe was our favourite though there are many beachfront bars and restaurants to enjoy. In the lobby, the puff pastries are a must and happy hour by the pool from 6-7 a treat, as well. Overall we had a ball here and highly recommend it to anyone considering!
