Great clean small place”
It’s a great place with happy friendly staff. Very helpful to small needs. It’s a quiet place with a small pool. Must stay place with very close proximity to the beach. The advantage of this particular section of the beach is that it is one of the less populated sections for seeing a peaceful sunset.
Dear Mr. Hari, Thank you for your kind review and voting us the best. We are glade that you enjoyed your stay. Look forward to welcome you at your HOME AWAY FROM HOME in the near future. With regards, Tyrone Rabot

Dear Mr.Kylie, Thank you for your kind and encouraging review. We are pleased that you had enjoyed your stay in our hotel. Look forward to welcome you and be of service in the near future. With regards, Tyrone Rabot
Nice breakfast clean and tidy a bit boring no atmosphere feels like your being watched you have to ring the bell to get in which is good for security as the whole area is full of beggars and thieving bastards never set foot on mount Lavinia as long as I live
Dear Mr. Andrew, Thank you for your kind review. In the interest of our guest we have established the procedure of the bell and the closed door policy at the main entrance. We do apologize for any inconveniences cause. Sorry of the out side influences to which we do not have any control. Notwithstanding the above we look forward to welcome you in the near future.

Outstanding . A Colombo gem.”
Great value for money. A little far from central Colombo but this is more than compensated for by ... well ... everything. Great in house dinner by the pool. Great breakfast. My only regret is that I did not discover it sooner.
Family run hotel”
Very friendly, helpful staf. But Very basic hotel 10 Kim's from Colombo There is a bus from the top of the road that will take you directly into Colombo for 30rpes pp There is a small swimming pool which appeared to be well maintained . Its two Minutes walk to the beach across the railway tracks. Breakfast is good. We ate dinner there one evening and it was also good. IThe hotel was difficult to find when we arrived first and the tuc tuc driver had to stop several times looking for directions. The pedestrian and vehicle gates are locked all the time which was a bit disconcerting but All in all it was a pleasant stay made all the more special by the warmth of the staff
Dear Sir/Madam, Thank you for giving us the opportunity to be of service. We are pleased that you had enjoyed your stay at our hotel. Our apologize for any inconveniences caused. Look forward to welcome you in the near future. With regards, Tyrone Rabot
Quaint Charm and a Caring Attentive Staff near the beach, in the heart of Mt Lavinia”
this was my second stay here, its quiet, once the sun starts to set, the beach is just across the train track not 5 minutes from the Villa, the food is good, the management is more than fair and the old timey care for customer satisfaction is something not easily found any more. highly recommend this place and its wonderful staff. I found myself feeling at home at The Villa in Lavinia, and plan to return soon.
Dear Mr.York, Thank you for your kind review. We are please to have been at your service. You are the purpose of us all been at The Villa In Lavinia. Look forward to serve you better. Regards, Tyrone Rabot
Tasty food. Stephen was very helpful if not a little too involved in your goings about. Also both the hotel staff constantly warn you not to go towards a certain side of town and instead direct you to the tourist spots... but for travelers like us, it's the opposite of what we want. The room was nice and we'd stay here again.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at The Villa in Lavinia! James was a fount of helpful information, and happily answered our slough of questions. The food was delicious, the staff are all very friendly. We look forward to staying here again next time we're through Colombo!
We'll presented, comfortable stay”
Nice, clean rooms with lots of extras including TV, air-conditioning, safe, fridge with mini bar and tea and coffee facilities. Beautiful hot shower with lots of water pressure. Hotel has good security. Rooms have rear door opening into a courtyard. The property features a lovely plunge pool and is a short walk to the beach. Our safe was locked closed when we arrived. We asked the staff to fix and they said they needed to call the manager but then never returned.
Great value for money in a quiet residential area, close to the beach & restaurants.”
The hotel is a beautiful old building that has been renovated quite recently. The property is walled in & has paving & planters which make the outside areas very attractive & the pool area, whilst small is really lovely. There is not much space for loungers, however every room has it's own outdoor seating area. The aircon. works well & the breakfasts were good. The usual eggs to order with toast, fresh juice & tea or coffee. There was also a Sri Lankan option on offer. The staff are helpful & friendly, as are James (Mngr.) & Roseanna (Ass.) Make sure you leave your room key should you wish your room to be cleaned. The beach is 2/3mins. walk away & has lots of restaurants for both lunch & supper. We recommend The Villa in Lavinia for all types of travellers
Excellent value & close to the beach & restaurants in a quiet area of Mt. Lavinia”
The Villa in Lavinia is a beautifully renovated Colonial style home set in a secure garden. It is excellent value for money & the staff are really helpful & friendly, particularly Chandi, Malith (?), James & Roseanna & the chef is very competant. Breakfast is the usual eggs to order with fresh juice, tea or coffee & bread or toast & there is usually a Sri Lankan option. The airconditioned downstairs rooms have a veranda leading on to a small paved area & the upstairs have aircon. & a balcony. Both have outside furniture. The small tiled pool is great for a freshen up before or after the beach & whilst there is not too much space for loungers, there is quite a bit of space around the pool to sit & socialise or have breakfast.The beach, where there are a good few beach restaurants, is a 3min. walk away. We would recommend them for any type of traveller from solo, couples, groups, families & ground floor rooms for the not so mobile. Thanks to the Management & Staff for a great 7 days
A peaceful haven close to the beach”
The Villa is a quiet and peaceful haven, located a short stroll from Lavinia beach and it's restaurant strip. we really enjoyed the friendly Sri Lankan hospitality from James and his team and of course the lovely Lavinia the resident dog. The rooms are spotless and comfy although be it a little small, lots of hot water and a lovely waterfall head shower,each room has a small balcony on which to relax, breakfast is good with a choice of Western or Sri Lankan, they kindly prepared an early breakfast for us every day as we were diving. There is a small cool plunge pool which is very appreciated in the heat of the day. A small suggestions would be to service the rooms daily, they are only serviced on request and then they are fully serviced, this isn't necessary,sheets don't need to be changed daily, but tea/coffee and bathroom supplies and water need to be topped up daily and towels could be changed if left on the floor. We will definitely stay again on our next visit to Sri Lanka.
Great place to start the adventure”
Picked this hotel because it had good reviews, especially compared to nearby hotels. Very close to beach with resturants, and supermarket and shops only few minutes walk from hotel. Clean environment, and the staff is very helpful and hospitable. Best of thanks to James and his crew for tips and help. The very cute dog Levinia is a mascot at the hotel, and gives everyone a warm greeting
Super nice staff, very well appointed & secure Hotel, super clean, Thanks to the Chef we even received Christmas cake on Christmas day. Super nice Hotel and super nice staff. Thanks very much for a wonderful stay. The only thing to wish for next time would be a quieter room.
Super place to stay”
We really enjoyed our stay at this comfortable & friendly hotel. Helpful host James greeted us by name which was nice. Our well appointed room was as described, clean & comfortable. The location just 5 minutes walk to the lovely beach with an array of nice restaurants. The day we arrived there was a music concert happening on the beach, lots of youngsters enjoying the music. Access to Colombo was easy, use the train or at the top of the road plenty of buses to get you to the city, bus or train stations. This was our first trip to Sri Lanka, we really enjoyed the warmth & welcoming nature of the people.
Clean and comfortable place to stay.”
We a family of 12 adults and a child stayed for 2 nights. Was a pleasant stay and the caretaker Steven was really helpful and so were the other staffs. Rooms were very clean. The only setback would be the bed. They have to upgrad the beds as its squeaking each time you turn. Other then that I would clearly recoomend this place tho it's slight out of city center. Kanna Malaysia
This was really far from the city centre. And the traffic makes it really harder to access. My friend and I had made prior arrangements with the hotel to have us picked up from the airport when we arrive. But no one was there to pick us up. We waited close to an hour, walked up and down the waiting area just in case we had missed anyone holding a placard with my name on it. We even called the hotel to ask about this but theu gave us the manager James' number, who could not be reached. In the end, we decided to take another taxi to the hotel. James called me back later and after telling him what happened,he apologised and said he wpuld find out what happened with the driver and get back to me. But he didn't and so it seemed to me that he didn't really care that this had happened. Though it was not a big deal and we got ourselves sorted out, i just felt that this was not a nice thing and i was kot informed later why the driver wasn't there.
Clean, secure place like a fortress, relaxing pool, hot showers, wifi never worked kept dropping in and out, and can get fairly noisy as it’s close to the train tracks and a few trains pass each hour. Could find a cheaper same facility place elsewhere
Right next to the sea! It is a very cozy space and definitely with a great value for money. Unfortunately we couldn’t take advantage of the brekfast as we left the hotel too early in the morning. We were only a bit disappointed with true cleanliness of the pool. For the rest, great place to stay. Especially if you love evening’s walk on the sea side!
We booked this apartment for our first night after touched down in Colombo. We had a friendly host and everything we needed. Thanks!
Dear Mr.Ulrich, Thank you for your kind review. We hope you will provide us with many more opportunities to be of service in the near future. With regards, Tyrone Rabot
