10/10 Exceptional

Central Colombo hotel overlooking the lake with a large pool area. The staff are very welcoming and the hotel has a high standard of cleanliness. The breakfast buffet and evening buffet are vast and tasty. There are 2 other restaurants in the hotel which are also pretty good although not as highly rated as restaurants in the other Cinnamon hotels. Gym, Lobby bar and the Library bar all good. There are renovations to one area of the hotel just now but these didn’t cause any problems at all with our stay.

8/10 Very good

A good one!
My stay is good. I like the place. The room is clean and the food is superb in the Thai Restaurant only disappointing is we need to make reservation in that restaurant and the front desk should inform us upon checking in about those details to avoid disappointment especially to the inhouse guest. Luckily, the man in the restaurant was able to accommodate us. During my stay, I was planning to extend for a night here since I cancel my Movenpick reservation due to the location I was trying to ask for the lesser rate, I was expecting it will be less since it is already a direct booking but what I don't like is the two ladies in the front desk discussing my issue in their local language, which for me is not a good hospitality practice. I told them directly about it and they don't even say anything to me. So I decided not to extend my stay but Over all it is indeed a good one especially the waiter in The Library.

6/10 Good

Location - the location is very good with a great view of the lake and the pool. Staff - the behavior of staff is very unprofessional & unfriendly. They would hardly respond to you, very arrogant & not helpful at all. Check-in took around 40 minutes, not even a chair offered, no welcome drinks. Breakfast time was a mess too - had to repeatedly ask the staff for coffee. After repeating for 3 times and to different people, finally the coffee came in about 15 minutes Amenities: Amenities were decent but they do not provide dental kit. I even called and asked for it but still didnt get it. Overall, the property is grand and good but services & staff make your stay quite bad. They should highly improve upon it.
