Kingsbury Sept 14 Review

The rooms, the food and the sky bar
9
Excellent hotel with friendly staff, extremely comfortable rooms and a great selection of bars and restaurants. I am a regular visitor to Sri Lanka as I have family in Colombo and have stayed in pretty much all of the "better" Colombo hotels at some point in the last couple of years. I would thoroughly recommend The Kingsbury - It is a very versatile hotel appropriate for various types of travellers. The rooms have a luxurious but homely feel, with seriously comfortable beds and pillows! A drink in the Sky bar is a must even if you aren't a resident. The breakfast choice and quality was pretty much the best I've experienced in Sri Lanka. I would also recommend the foyer coffee shop - A bit crowded at times but the cakes and chocs are lovely and well priced for the quality. Overall, an excellent hotel that I will most definitely be returning to!

Big hotel, useful Location

This is a huge hotel business and tourist, your a number here, the view from the room is amazing, looking across Galle face Green and down the coas,t we stayed in a Premium room, which was good but could have done with a bath, everything else at this hotel is as you expect these places to be, it's in a good location walk to the Dutch hospital precinct, Pettah market and the fort area, a short tuk tuk ride to shopping venues. We were alarmed as each day on the TV screen in our room taxes and charges for the room came up and accumulated daily, we believed these were included in our agoda payment and were concerned, but on checking out they were disregarded so don't be alarmed if this happens to you.
