Travellers' Choice?
I am not too sure about why Royce Hotel has obtained the 2016 Travellers' Choice. To be honest I booked Royce because of the reward, but I have to say I was a bit disappointed. The hotel was 30 minutes tuk tuk away from Colombo, but it was just 5 minutes walk from the Mount Lavinia beach, and the sunset was lovely and romantic. We booked a standard room and the floor was rusty and dirty with a lot of unwashable sand-like footprints. Walls were damp too. Don't expect too much from the bathroom as well. The TV did not work at first although the staff was able to fix it after we raised the issue. Wifi did not work too well for upper floor rooms. We went out for an early beach run at around 6am, but had to wait for 10-15 minutes for someone to open the gate upon return, although previous night the staff told us there is always staff on duty at the door area. What bothered us the most is the air conditioning was very very noisy at night that we could not sleep well. Breakfast was very slow and not all menu choices were available, but quality was fair. Hotel looked nice from the outside, but inside would need some maintainence. For example the hotel tuk tuk looked nice in the display photo, but in reality it was rusty and malfunctional. One plus was that the staff was polite and informative, not all of them were good in English but you could see they tried their best using body languages.

Old world charm
Lovely garden and verandah, location, safety and security
We were a party of five adults in three rooms staying in this hotel for a few nights after arriving in Sri Lanka. Very helpful staff. Arranged for our onward transport with good driver and nice vehicle. Lovely breakfast, Sri lankan and western. Very good location, equal distance to many shops and beach, very close to both. Well laid out hotel and organised. Lovely verandah area to sit with drinks and we also took breakfast on the verandah. Staff on site at all times, we felt very safe here.

Royce is not a 3 star rating hotel.
We are not satisfied to stay at Royce Hotel. It looks like a nornal house, not like a hotel. No room services. Very much low quality hotel in compare to price.

Good, but don't expect 3-star service
Quiet, Close to beach, Polite Staff
First of all, this is not a 3-star hotel. The staff themselves told me that a couple of times. The big problem with this hotel is that mobile network signal is very low inside the building. The building is only two-storied, so you cannot book a higher room. However the location is good. It is in between Galle road and the beach. The staff are extremely polite and sincere and tried to help me in every way possible. Breakfast was good too, with several choices.

Friendly and helpful staff. Close to beach. Easy access to city
Stayed for 3 nights and were treated very well. Manager and staff were willing to help with anything we wanted to do (booking tuk tuk etc). Location is close to the beach - would recommend staying here.

Great place to unwind
Cleanliness, great beds, awesome breakfast
It's a beautiful colonial house transformed into a hotel. The rooms bore the signs of being meticulously cleaned, the bed was sumptuous and the french toast was to die for. Lovely garden area as well, perfect for sipping a cup of tea in the afternoon.
