Good hotel for two nights
Close to the beach, good restaurant, nice garden
The hotel was fine but Mt Lavinia is not really a nice place to stay for a long time. Sri Lanka has so much more to offer.

Great location and a boutique hotel
The natural setting and landscape is very relaxing
Pleasant except the provision of clean bed sheets and pillow cases, while a mosquito control in the rooms is a must!

Good Hotel and location, friendly staff
Good sized rooms,close to beach
We had a nice stay at this hotel. The hotel was very quiet as it was the start of the season. The food in the restaurant was good with a varied choice. The hotel is close to the railway but it is not really a problem.The staff and local people are friendly, but beware of the' beach boys' who come into the small private beach and try to arrange tours etc for you,they appear very friendly and helpful,but after you agree a price they ask for more,also ask to borrow money with no intention of repaying. The beach sellers are fine, you just have to barter for the best price.

Great location
Very cosy and airy rooms
though the 5 of us arrived almost midnight, there were no hassle. the rooms were ready and clean. we booked 2 rooms and requested side by side and we got it. there was plenty of privacy as the hotel was located off the main road but next to the beach. the short walk to the beach was an experience as we have to cross a railway track. this made it all the more exciting. breafast was sufficient and right next to the beach. what more could we ask for as the price was right.

Good Hotel
Garden hotel, walking distance to beach, railway station and bust stoppage
We stayed here for 3 nights. Nice garden hotel. If you like staying without any disturbance, go there. Hotel got a facility to go to the beach. Nice room, small toilet which is acceptable, Nice balcony from where you can see the train and the sea.

Quiet if it weren't for the railway line...
Private verandas and proximity to beach
This is an unusual feeling hotel - the rooms are spacioua and quite well appointed: it is a good place to come if you are seeking a little privacy: the gardens are extensive and each room has its own private outside seating area. We had a very early train to catch and the hotel prepared a packed breakfast and delivered to our rooms at 5am, so the customer service was certainly creditable. many restaurants are available just over the railway line.
