Value for money”
The rooms are very spacious, but it feels a bit gosty due to the cob webs in the lights. Apart from that it was amazing. Their breakfast was very average but the service was very good. Hotel amenities are there.
Good hotel, but no proper restaurants, Good swimming pool
Not a 4* Hotel”
It has no 4* facilities! There is no refrigerator in the room, No Glasses and spoons (only two Tea Cups) Wardrobe doors and other shelves are broken and about to fall.
.it could be a fantastic place un 2 years”
Didn't get the room i asked. Needed to find a way to get rid of termites. Breakfirst would be nice if they have some Srilankan specials. The staff were accomodating. Eould be nice if they can tell us what we can see locally.
worst ever experience”
pathetic rooms, smelling bad, staffs were rude. scary for family..no wifi, intercom mot working..not worth at all..made a foolish decision based someone reference.. never ever choose this not worth
Lovely but neglected”
Overall we enjoyed our stay in Palms Mount Lavinia. The property itself is absolutely lovely and has an old charm. The pool was clean, the room (triple) was wonderfully spacious and the stuff smiley and accommodating. However, the hotel feels run down and neglected, with a thick layer of dust on many a thing, water and dirt stains on the walls and spider webs in the corners. The floor in our room (as in the rest of the hotel) was so dirty that a trip from a shower to the bed resulted in black stains on the lovely white linens! The hotel is practically empty and is in immediate need of of love and care. Also note that the hotel is NOT in Colombo but 10 km away. Whereas this doesn't sound too far, getting to and from Colombo took us on average 40 min even with a tuktuk as the traffic there is very dense.
Very bad hotel ”
Very bad hotel, unfriendly staff, don’t recommended for anyone
Disaster hotel never seen such appalling service ever!”
Over all experience in the hotel was terrible, there was so confusing about my booking and hotel wanted to charge me more money, it was just one night stay and I put request for early check in but they did not allow me, room was ready but wanted to charge me for that. Breakfast in the morning was not provided buffet but portion and variety of foods were good enough, staff needs more training about the service and communication how it should be, pool attendant was all the time available there to assist, foods are expensive like 7 star hotels, whatever the hotel has if they have friendly and nice staff then it would have been very nice.
Dear Guest, Thank you for reviewing Palms Mount Lavinia following your recent stay with us. We are delighted you enjoyed your stay and our facilities. We look forward to welcome you back during your next visit to Sri Lanka. Best Wishes! Palms, Mount Lavinia Management
Looks fabulous and grand. Service is terrible same too the restaurant. Private functions daily/nightly. Will not be visiting again.
Hotel need upgrading
Old and worst place to stay
Returning travellers left disappointed”
We had previously stayed here and found it very comfortable and the staff friendly and helpful. Things have gone down hill since then. With the exception of the pool hand and what I think is the head waiting staff, all other staff we saw were lazy and unhelpful. Not one of the three basic service requests I asked were actioned, despite asking multiple times and multiple staff. For example, a second bottle of water with dinner when the previous was finished. Never saw it! Rooms smelled musty and mouldy, and gym room (not used during our first visit) contains rusty equipment and is not air conditioned. We left to stay elsewhere in Mount Lavinia and will not be returning despite feeling on our first visit that this would always be our base in Mount Lavinia.
superb location and relaxing
Peaceful Place close to the city”
Was comfortable and a good place to sit and work just 30 mins away from the city of Colombo. New staff friendly and trying hard but the require training is service.
i have been here before. it was great
Rooms were not that clean and wifi is not available in the rooms
Staff services are of very poor quality.”
Very bad experience with basic services like cleanliness, porter services. Hotel staff is just not bothered
OK in general rule
