The hotel is like a "factory" where the staff will not pay attention to you and will treat you as a number. Make sure your room is far away from elevators as you can hear all the machinery 24/7. Buffet variety for breakfast and dinner was acceptable but the taste was very blend as it's shows that the hotel focus... More

I stayed at Cinnamon Lakeside Colombo for a work trip and turned out into a fantastic staycation. The hotel facilities are very clean and the food is excellent. The breakfast is a dream and includes Asian and Western options. The scenic pool by the lake is bordered by a lovely garden and by different restaurant options for lunch or dinner.... More

Had an awesome experience, our room was on the first floor with balcony, we had requested for the room to be cleaned late evening and they did it, they provide nice service and staff is very courteous.

Modern rooms, great facilities. Big pool in the centre feels a bit overlooked. Top floor rooms have great views of the lake. Breakfast buffet was huge but quite busy. Go before 10.30 to eat outside rather than in the overcrowded room inside.

I approached the hotel to help me organize a surprise overnight stay with my wife on her birthday and they were great through the whole process. I was offered a free upgrade (without asking) to the next best room and also given a number of free amenities at the point of booking. Then on the day I was given earlier... More

We only stayed for one night before starting our one week roundtrip in Sri Lanka. The hotel was ok, nothing to complain about. Staff was friendly, room was tidy and clean and breakfast buffet was good.
