          Spacious apartment in lovely old home”
          The location is a short walk to the beach with good seafood restaurants. The apartment is large and airy with nice teak furniture, a wide balcony with a view of the ocean, and a well-supplied kitchen. The one drawback is the noise from the train that runs along the beach behind the house. Would happily stay there again.

          Noisy!”
          I unfortunately booked this place before I read the reviews. The trains were very loud, tooting their horns as they flew past the fence of the The Margosa Residencies. The accommodation was very nice but there was something on the floor in one half so when we walked on it it was sticky and dirty. The beds and bathrooms were great and the staff were as helpful as they could be. I would not stay there again mostly because of the trains - starting at 5am in the morning!

          Great place!”
          The Margosa Residencies was our first stop in Sri Lanka and we were welcomed by the very friendly and helpful staff. Our room was more like an apartment; very spacious and comfortable. Located on the beach so to speak. Recommend it!

          An oasis of calm in Colombo”
          Beautiful view from the terrace, wonderfully spacious and comfortable rooms, fabulous staff performance
          I stayed in the first floor 2 bedroom apartment named "Branch" with 2 friends who were traveling to Asia for the first time. We immediately felt at home in the beautifully furnished apartment with a lovely view of the beach. The staff were extremely accommodating and we were very well looked after. They really went out of their way to make our stay special and we would have loved to stay much longer. For first timers in Asia the location was simply perfect: far from the bustle of Colombo, but with quick and easy access to downtown, a lovely view of the beach and Ocean from the balcony and a very short walk to the beachfront restaurants, comfortable beds and sofas... we will definitely be staying there again!

          Hospitality second to non.”
          The manager, room size and cleanliness
          For the price you pay, the rooms are outstanding. A living room with sofa TV, DVD and in room Internet big enough for 10 comfortably leads to a well equips kitchen and dining area. The bedroom is completely separate and has large 4 poster with ac and huge wardrobe with iron. But to speak of all of this and not mention the most down to earth, accommodating and respectful manager would be silly. He goes beyond what I could have expected getting me a phone card sorted and even taking me on a tour of Kandy (5 hours away) and was completely professional and relaxed. Got me a great deal on a car too. Would I stay again? Yes. Should you? Yes–I think So.

          short but sweet”
          location, cleanliness and very friendly staff
          We only spent two nights at the Margosa Residencies, but we loved the stay. We were a little aprehensive for the noise of the trains, but we needn't have worried too much. Our first night was from Saturday to Sunday and after the trains stop at around 11pm on Saturday they only start coming by from around 9am on Sunday. No issue there. On Monday morning they start up at around 6 am, but we were heading out early anyway so it didn't bother us at all. We didn't make use of the kitchen that came with the room, it was so easy to head out to the beach which is 50mtrs from the hotel with plenty of restaurants to choose from. The hotel room was very spacious and clean and the staff was very friendly. We would recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Colombo.

          Comfort, kitchen facilities and the staff.
          If you like the beach and don't mind a bit of noise when the trains go by it is a very good place with very good security, beautiful apartments with everything you need to cook, even your own washing machine. The staff will open the door for you when you need to go out or get back in. Cross the train tracks and you are at the beach. You can take the train to downtown Colombo or the bus from Galle road.
