    Great location & staff”

    Lake Lodge is ideally located between most sites. Taking a Tuk Tuk is cheap with a few within walking distance. The staff are very attentive and professional making the stay well worthwhile. They are willing to make reservations for dinner on your behalf. Breakfast is great, keeps you full until lunchtime. We loved it here and will definitely come back.

    We really enjoyed our two stays at this modern, nice and comfy boutique hotel. We were there to start our sejour in Sri Lanka and again at the end of our excursion before returning home. Its location is perfect in a calm environment near a nice lake. Staff is cordial and competent. A special thank to its GM Mr Hareez Rizwan for his kindness.

    One of Asia's best kept secret”

    Beach, Breakfast, Pool

    The room was cozy enough.. We stayed in the ground floor which comes with two entrances.. the back entrances leads us to the beach.. special thanks to guest realtions officer if you reading this.. Thanks a lot for the surprise cake for the honeymoon.. We wanted to personally thank you, but we could not reach you when we left. Its always advissable to order in room dining its much cheaper than eating in their restaurant or eating outside.. To tell you the truth i am not a beach fan.. I prefer the mountains more Until i came to this hotel. i actually did learn how to surf the beach is relatively untouched- One of Asia's best kept secret.. i could walk like 50 metres into the beach the water would be just until my chest.. and the waves are pretty awesome.. the scenery is just amazing.. most of the times I would think should i be in the pool? or in the beach? or should i be taking the pictures.. This has a semi private beach. they wont allow you to play after 6 for safety reasons.. so go to the pool.. Amazing all over again.. btw.. the restaurant is pricey.. but the breakfast is JUSt amazing.have a wonderful mix of western, organic, srilankan, Indian, and healthy food.. Wow the first time i tried a bitterguard juice..

    Very impressed with the Lake Lodge. Very comfortable room, very clean. The service was excellent and the food was very good. The location is great. Short tuk tuk ride into the city. Not much to see though as the shopping is poor. The temples and lake nearby are very nice. Recommend going up to the Skybar of the Legend Hotel for drinks in the city if you stay here.

    Relaxed, well-run & peaceful - an oasis in Colombo”

    Great service, dining, relaxing ambience

    Overall we had a great stay. The hotel is modern and well managed, with nice attention to detail everywhere you look, though I think they could improve on the blanket concrete-grey effect in the rooms. Menu and bar options were well priced and of a high standard, and service was excellent. The location is superb, situated between a lovely lake and the beachfront, and central Colombo is walkable - though it can be a little tricky to find, especially in the dark with lots of winding alleyways nearby to get lost in! Just a few quibbles - water was only lukewarm at times, and ceiling fan didn`t work. Flushing could be a mission too on the `classic style` WCs. I would recommend checking these things out before taking a room.

    Quiet, contemporary design, great location

    Driving up the alley into the hotel, you would think the hotel is a basic stay but it is anything but that. As the transport pulls into the hotel, I was floored by the minimalist and contemporary design. The hotel is right by the lake and it is very quiet and peaceful. A Bawa designed temple sits on the lake and is a must visit.

    Nice design, delicious menu, generous inclusive breakfast

    Lake Lodge was our last stay after 2 weeks in Sri Lanka and it was without a doubt the most thought through and well designed venue. The staff were kind and helpful, breakfast was delicious, the roof is lovely to have a drink/dinner. The rooms are comfy with nice clean large bathrooms, with powerful hot showers - although you are not encouraged to open the curtains as there is little view to speak of so I felt slightly that I was in a cave (but I actually quite liked the effect!).

    Walking distance to many nearby attractions & sites

    My second visit to Sri Lanka & unlike the 1st visit this hotel was on top of my expected late arrival from the international airport in the early hours after midnight. A room was ready & my arrvial expected & with little fuss & paperwork I was off to bed after a long travel day. Excellent breakfast options & service from the staff was right on the money. Front desk team were helpful with local information & guidance when assistance was requested. Free of charge WIFI was a bonus. My room was modern & appointed with everything I needed, especially an adaptor for charging of various electronic devices.

    Quiet, within walking distance of some gorgeous temples, really close to good shopping in Colombo, lovely staff, really nice room

    This is one of the nicer boutique hotels I have stayed in. The hotel is located a little away from the main roads (so it is a tad difficult to find at night), but this makes the hotel peaceful and quiet and just a great place to stay in the bustle of Colombo. The staff are extremely helpful and were able to answer all the questions I had about the town and travelling from Colombo to other places.

I would definitely recommend organising this before you arrive so you don't have to queue up in the long taxi line. Staff were friendly and there were no problems during my stay.

    I enjoyed staying at the lake lodge which I would recommend having tried other and pricier hotels in colombo. Colombo has good boutique hotels and lake lodge is one of them. do not expect a spa or a leisurely retreat it is more of a business hotel in a quiet and convenient location at good value for money. will definitely stay there again if I need to spend a few nights in Colombo.
