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.

Mount Lavinia Hotel Review By Garry Stiven

Staff, Food, Beach
We had an excellent stay owing to the high standard of staff, the excellent choice of food and beverages and choice of restaurants. The private beach proved to be a wonderful calm haven very welled served by the Sea Cove bar and restaurant. Rooms were a bit old fashioned but did have all the necessary facilities and were very comfortable. Overall an excellent hotel full of typical Sri Lankan charm and freindliness. I would highly recommend anyone to stay here.

Great time in Colombo

The location, right on the beach, it is nice and quite from the city hustle and bustle and the seafood there on the beach is just wonderful.
This was the fourth time I stayed at this hotel and each time I have enjoyed myself. It is not quite a 5 star as they would like to think, but it is comfortable, the location is great and the seafood on the beach is the best.

They actually rate themselves 4 *.

I spent a week here, partly holiday and partly business. When I arrived I was given a lower standard of room than booked. Then moved to one of even lower standard. Finally moved to what I had booked. The duty manager was unhelpful to put it mildly although did eventually move me to what I had paid for. During discussion he claimed the hotel is a 4*, not 5*. When I finally got the room I booked, 2 hours after arriving, it was good with a stunning view from the balcony. Restaurant and bar are disappointing but there is plenty of choice just outside the hotel ranging from cheap (but good) beach shacks to outstanding at very good prices (La Rambla). Once away from the management the staff are very pleasant and helpful at every level
