Dilip K. Families with older children India, July 26, 2015
Overrated average hotel

Location, right on the beach. That's all I can think of! !!
6
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

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.
9.3
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!

Functional but not attractive

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.

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.

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.
