Soft duck feather pillows especially created to improve sleep quality, crisp cool sheets to wrap you in cosy comfort with muted earthy tones and warm lighting to complement - a welcome sight that will greet you at all our 50 rooms. Each one exudes a sense of homely wellbeing combined with contemporary elegance - a charming ambience that will envelop you with a sense of peace and relaxation from the moment you step in. Draw back the curtains and the views across the ocean or the sprawling suburbs - night or day will ease your mind too. The two rooms on the 8th floor can also be combined as a family suite of understated luxury with 180 degree views of the Indian Ocean - a place where your loved ones can make themselves at home while you attend to your business obligations.

I was a brand new customer for this location with my mates. the hotel room was very cleaned, bed linen was very clean. bath room was good my little space for standard rooms. but it was good, i checked in around 8.30 am and the buffet wasn't that great. but. there are much more oriental food. Property is walking distance from the Colombo/Galle Road. we ordered pizza for lunch and it was good. the bed was very comfy.

I am a regular guest at this hotel and each time they seem to surpass the previous experience, from check in, to room atmosphere and level of cleanliness to the gorgeous breakfast buffet and dinner meals with great food choices. Many thanks to Mr. Siva and the great team at Fair View for making my stay a very pleasant one. This time, I was fortunate to try out the Crab Curry with Roast Pan Dinner option and what a splendid choice it turned out to be....easily the best crab dish I ever had that in my life... Pictures attached. Pls try them out as they are specially sourced from the Nilavali Lagoon. Meaty, fresh and cooked in a rich aromatic spicy masala dry sauce.. I will be returning! Kumar

When you arrive in fairview, you look at a hotel that has a new feel - strong Cinnamon smell. Check in was fluent. Rooms are Nice! Beds are great quality, bathrooms was clean! Missing, balcony... Pool! Breakfast was underwelming, boiled egg, fruit. A lot of Sweet, and a lot of spicy.. seems that they are not used to tourists to prepare a Continental breakfast. International call, to help not possible if you are outside they cant call you to assist. Excursions: Can we do a trip? No we dont provide that service. Location was ok, 30min from Colombo and 20min from mount lavinia..the only place around Colombo where you can go to the beach.. IT was mostly underwelming..
