Disappointment
5.3
First impression poor, with rude front office staff that cannot smile, no welcome drink. The bell hopper was pleasant. Room was adequate but not an executive suite standard that I have stayed in with other hotels. If this is the best Colombo has to offer then the industry is in serious problems. The roof bar was good, but cocktails are not made well - both bother with the mojito's. The Chinese restaurant was good. The room when we finally got back from the airport at 1am was placed under the sky bar and the music went on till 3am. Was too tired to be asked for a room change that early in the morning. Breakfast, again rude staff being told that only normal coffee and tea are being served and there is nothing herbal (this is supposed to be a 5 star hotel in Sri Lanka – tea capital of the world)

Staff & the duty manager as well as the relationship manager were polite & efficient.

An oasis of civilization

The location in the Fort district, by the ocean. Bvlgari toiletries. Huge glass wall overloooking the Green.

Enjoyable and quiet stay in elegant surroundings, with attentive staff - over-attentive sometimes. Varied breakfast, although I found a hair in (not on) my roti, which I find totally unacceptable for a hotel of this standard... Apart for an apology.... nothing else... No rooms or spaces for smokers, apart from the pool area or the Sky Lounge. A lot of staff everywhere, but no one to mind the pool- i.e. to keep children from misbehaving when parents fail to notice. When bringing us an ashtray, one staff also asked for cigarettes...agai, in a 5* hotel this is unconceivable. The reception staff had rather limited knowledge of Englis, though, compared to what we found in other hotels, less glitzy ones on the island.

We transferred from another popular and as it turned out a far better hotel the Cinnamon Grand just to try the Kingsbury hotel ,it was old ,the lobby very unimpressive and the staff were overworked,only two people on the very small front desk.The room was very small ,old carpet but did have a view.Quite a few of the staff spoke very poor English and the food was far from 5 star.Overall a three star experience at five star prices.Cinnamon grand is the place to stay in Colombo

Need to train your staff in the restaurant especially the team who wearing a black suits on how to smile in the face of the customers. Your staff who serve the food are excellent and very friendly. Observed the restaurant staff has two standard, sometimes they not allow and sometimes they allow customers wearing sleevless shirt to enter the restaurant, they should have one standard.Your staff at the main enterance are very good and very friendly.
