            Outstanding staff, always helpful.”

            I stayed at the Cinnamon Lakeside for 19 days on a business trip in July and the staff were incredibly friendy and helpful from the moment I arrived. Everyone smiled and greeted me and my colleagues at the restaurant and lounge, and they went out of their way to help us arrange meeting rooms. The staff in the Executive Lounge were fantastic, especially Lucky. The gym and pool were super. The restaurant served a wide variety of breakfast foods and the Thai restaurant next door was excellent for dinner. I would be happy to stay there anytime.

            Solid Security”

            Arrived from the airport. Car was stopped at the gate to the hotel at 2am. The security searched every point of the car. They were very polite and told me they had to search inside the car. They opened the bonnet and examined the engine compartment. They had the walk around mirror, but another security was down on his hands and knees checking under the car. After completing the search we made our way to the Reception. Fantastic security. Sadly the hotel was empty due to the Easter Sunday bombings. Room was huge and with all the amenities. The hotel staff were so helpful and warning me to keep away from cetain areas. Fantastic hotel and the staff so considerate to warn me not to go to certain places. This is the place to stay in Colombo.

            Excellent choice for downtown Colombo”

            Still good value for money, in the expensive, generally overrpiced hotel market in Colombo. Like many hotels, it is in need of a renovation if it is to compete with the rash of newer hotels being built along the Galle Face. For the moment, it's plenty good enough. The breakfast buffet is excellent - varied and plenty of healthy choices. It gets very crowded. The lunch buffet was also excellent. Best feature: a massive double swimming pool. very easy to do full lengths either in the conventional pool or the shallow (1.2m) pool. The gym looked good too, though I didn't use it.

            Breakfast was really good. There was a wide array of food from local dishes to western and Chinese food. The food was fresh and well prepared. There are many restaurants within the hotel to cater to the guests. There's a nice little bookshop downstairs as well as some other shops. Location is quite central and overlooking the lake. All in it was a pleasant experience. Very clean hotel.

            I can recommend this hotel but the Cinnemon Grand Hotel is better as well as the location. For Sri Lanka is this hotel one of the top categories but as a foreigner you might have your doubts. Nevertheless was the stay very good and the staff was friendly. The facilities are also really good such as gym, sauna, pool.

            During my recent visit I stayed five days at Cinnamon Grand and two days at Cinnamon Lakeside. In both places rooms were clean and comfortable. But we found the restaurant services at Cinnamon Grand was much superior to our taste than Cinnamon Lakeside. Further, food at the restaurants at Cinnamon Grand was cost effective and superior quality.

            It served its purpose (proximity to conference centre). The rooms are a bit tired. The staff are rather hit and miss (some are good, some don't appear to speak a word of English which is surprising given the number of western tourists in the hotel). It's clearly more focussed as a tourist hotel. The "lake" is not very exciting - cannot even go and walk around it or anything. It's good enough; comfortable sleep; but mainly a tourist hotel.
