Comfory, cleanliness, location
Fine stay, fine breakfast, and close to the beach. However the chairs at the balcony were extremely uncomfortable, and the hot shower did not work.

Ok”
Staff friendly and helpful
It was ok- we only just arrived so were greatful for requesting breakfast as it was nice enough egs and banana and toast. We would say however don't leave any money in your room. Although we cannot prove it , we think there was money taken from our camera case when we popped out for an hour. As I say we cannot prove it, but we are quite sure. A shame really as 80% of the staff were excellent.

OK hotel not far from beach and main road”
Competitive price, public areas very comfortable, room decent
I felt like the rooms were a little expensive for their low comfort level, but it's hard to find much lower for this in this area. Still, the rooms sufficed. The public areas are very nicely furnished and comfortable, if you have time to hang out. The staff disappeared when not needed. There are safety boxes in the main house, but no safes in the rooms.

Best value for the money!!”
Breakfast was included, AC worked great, Best value for the price, Nice ambience
This hotel is the best value for the money in Mount Lavinia! The staff was friendly and helpful,a nice breakfast was included in the price (which most of the other hotels in the area does not provide). The room was clean, large and comfortable, and the AC worked great although it was a bit noisy. My room even had a balcony. The lobby and garden gives it a nice ambiance, which other hotels in the area lack. Walking distance from several nice restaurants and the beach. The only letdown was the bathroom, which could be upgraded, and could have been a little bit cleaner. But nevertheless I will stay here again on my next visit.

If you like quiet hotels...”
staff, breakfasts, nearby beach
I had a fine stay at Ivory Inn! The air conditioning was great, the hot water was hot, and the water pressure was good. It's quiet and near the beach. I think they are in the midst of transitioning from a hostel to a hotel, so there is some painting that needs to be done along with the purchase of new mattresses and linens. However, I felt very comfortable even without those changes. I had a balcony, and the grounds are very pretty. As more of the staff practice their English, they will be ranked as super. There is good security with the gates watched during the day. At night, there is a watchman on the gates all night. I walked to the beach and nearby fast food places at night and felt safe. For the money, it is hard to beat. Small fridges in the rooms and tea kettles would be big hits, I think. I was there last month, so it was not crowded at all. It may change, but if they separate the young hostel crowd from seniors and families and add a greater variety of drinks and some snacks, I think their ranking will be rising soon. Some literature in the rooms on nearby restaurants and attractions would also be helpful, but the staff will try to answer any questions.

Nice, Cheap and Friendly”
The staff were very friendly and nothing was too much, the outside area is really nice to chill out in the evening and the location close to the beach is great for Colombo.
Everything was as expected, although it is a little out of the way. Had a great chat with the owner/manager and his passion for the place really shone. If you're looking for cheap and friendly this is definitely the one! Close enough to Central Colombo for ease but the proximity to the beach is even better!
