    Wonderful oasis”
    Thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Havelock Place Bungalow. A serene oasis in a busy city. The staff were lovely and the meals were wonderful. Breakfast was the best we had in Sri Lanka and the evening meals were a treat. Highly recommended and would definitely stay again. Many thanks.

    Small, but beautiful place in a quiet street close to the noisy city centre. Great location for a variety of destinations in town. Most of all, a great service, spacious rooms and a beautiful garden with a small pool. Highly recommended!

    Absolutely lovely little retreat”
    We came to Havelock utterly exhausted by our overscheduled lives. The room was lovely and so comfortable. We are still talking about how soft the linens were - and it's been a week. It was nice and quiet, which meant we were able to catch up on much needed sleep. When we did finally emerge, the staff were incredibly helpful and accommodating. All-in-all, we'll make a point to come back next time we're in Colombo.

    Perfect Lanka Sanctuary ”
    The garden and pool setting of the bungalow could not be a more perfect start to our Sri Lanka holiday. The attentive staff kindly stayed up for our late check-in at 1am after a long flight from Australia. Location is perfect, we learnt to catch the 138 bus and tuktuks very quickly to all the main places in Colombo. Right next to a corner shop with booze, bottled water and other daily supplies. Room was spacious and well equipped with AC and small courtyard, next to beautifully decked out antique lounge. Lovely breakfast and perfect service. Pool was a bonus after a day of sight-seeing. Across the road there is a great salon that did my hair perfectly.

    Peaceful and spacious”
    The old colonial style of architecture makes this a spacious stay. We had a suite with 2 rooms connected by a short corridor sharing a bathroom and a separate front door to the hotel dining room. The outside patio makes a relaxing place for breakfast and dinner. The staff are very attentive and the place seems well run. The location is not hard to find although not exactly central.

    The villas are charming but a bit worn out. The location is slightly further away from downtown, but therefore also more quiet. The staff is friendly and the manager is a lovely lady, very helpful in getting u around

    Although I would choose restaurants in other parts of Colombo next time, even if they are further away, I would stay here again. It was quaint, friendly, very different from my normal choices, and a wonderful experience overall.

    Lovely old world traditional colonial house”
    Historical charm, quiet, and friendly place, in a simple and easy location. Not in the big development parts of Colombo, and 4-5 minute trishaw to the main areas. Food was very well prepared. Pool was perfect for the kids, and shaded, so fine during the day, even the hot bits. Wifi also available. Staff very helpful. Probably a little expensive given similar prices for bigger new hotels, but if you prefer intimate small places, this is great.

    Charming, pleasant stay, with rough patches”
    breakfast, historical charm, intimacy
    A pleasant, historical little hotel with a fine breakfast and an enjoyable dipping pool. We stayed for just a night as we landed in Colombo late. The room was a bit worn in a way that went beyond the usual charm of an historic structure, but nothing that would prevent me to recommend the place. And the A/C blew straight on the bed which was annoying. We also got off to a bad start as the driver we ordered through the hotel wasn't waiting for us as promised when our flight arrived at the airport. He was sleeping and we eventually tracked down but only after multiple phone calls (at 2am with two sleepy kids anxious to get settled). He was also clearly either drunk or stoned or massively fatigued and i had to talk to him constantly to keep him focused on the road. When I complained the next morning, the hotel staff was sympathetic, but laid blame on the taxi company and seemed a bit miffed when I told them I would only pay for half the fee. I was paying a premium to have a sure-thing driver waiting for us. Highlight was the breakfast, with a varied menu of Western and Sri Lankan -- all was delicious. Overall, if you are in Colombo and want to avoid the big hotels, this is a nice alternative.

    街の雑踏から引っ込んだ路地にあるため、落ち着いていて、密林のような自然あふれる雰囲気も味わえます。庭にはリスが走り回り、ゆったりとした時間が流れています。部屋は雨漏りがあり、エアコンを弱めることができない(故障?)という設備面のマイナスはありつつも、雰囲気はとても好きでした。朝ごはんも選べるアラカルトメニューなので、ブュッフェが多い中、貴重だと思いました。
