beautiful hotel, poor customer service
Food, location
We enjoyed our stay here and had a lovely time experiencing the buffets which were impressive. When we attempted to extend our stay, initially they were welcoming and agreed to it but when we returned to pay, they had given away our reservation despite telling us that we were confirmed. When we tried to discuss this with the manager, they were dismissive until we remained firm with what happened and eventually they found a way to fix the situation. It was an unfortunate incident. The rest of the staff were very friendly and professional and otherwise, it was a good stay.

Holiday on a hill
Views, history, breeze
We enjoyed Mount Lavinia, had a great meal in the seafood shack on the beach and also good breakfasts in the Captains Restaurant. Overall the hotel was very busy and noisy. Lovely to see the bridal parties with drums and dancers that are constantly arriving but seating areas for hotel residents to relax were few and availability on the beach seemed non existent. This somewhat spoiled it for us. The beach on Colombo side of the hotel is better for swimming and much more interesting than the hotel beach. I would encourage others to take the back gate out of the hotel and explore the restaurants and beach just outside the hotel. The hotel security will wait for you and let you back in.

Stunning hotel with amazing staff
Location is stunning, staff are some of the best I have ever had in a hotel and the seafood restaurant is fantastic
We had 4 nights at this wonderful hotel, it really was a pleasure to stay at such an old and amazing hotel steeped in history. The staff are fantastic from the second we arrived to the second we left, every door was opned for you and always greeted with a smile and a good morning or good evening Sir, they literally couldn't do enough for you. The food is great, buffet breakfast on the terrace overlooking the Indian Ocean is a great way to start the day, the private beach is a great place to spend a good few hours, my best experience is the seafood restaurant, amazing food so reasonably priced, I would return just for this restaurant :-) This is my 2nd time in Sri Lanka and it really is the most amazing country to visit, Mount Lavinia Hotel is a must for anyone either travelling around Sri Lanka or just visiting for a short break....a truly wonderful hotel.
