    Breakfast and food in general are excellent.

    I came to the Governors restaurant for lunch and was handed the 'Terrace Menu Card' and had to ask for a possible existence of a "real" menu card. Could the reason be that the restaurant prefer the guests to choose the lunch buffet ? The temperature in the "sofa bar" is extremely cold. Save on energy and give the guests a more comfortable environment. Also good for hotel economy ! Room temperature could be increased as well. Every day the temperature was decreased by the staff from my setting of 24 C to 17 C. A stable higher temperature prevents condensation on the tile floor. Why not ask the guests on arrival what temperature they wish to have in their room during their stay. Thanks.

    Lovely views from the property.

    Needs a renovation as felt like the hotel had been left unloved and is relying too much on its history. There was mould on the walls of the outside balcony of our room and the table cloths at lunch were dirty. We were very disappointed as had been looking forward to staying at this place.

    Great hotel for the end of our trip as it was fairly close to the airport. Plenty of Colonial splendour here with a great beach (No swimming)

    Not much!

About

Overview

Step back in time to an era of colonial splendour, mystique and romance. Mount Lavinia Hotel offers you the very best of modern facilities blended with a magical touch of antiquity. This enchanting British Colonial heritage hotel, located on a breathtaking beachfront, is a living legacy to the secret love story between the British Governor General of Ceylon, Sir Thomas Maitland, and the beautiful mestizo dancer, Lovina. The legendary romance has made this Colombo hotel one of the most popular venues in Sri Lanka for weddings; couples from around the world fly to this fabled island for a custom-planned wedding at the Mount Lavinia Hotel. The Victorian era ambiance, gourmet cuisine prepared by our world-class chefs and the exceptional service, have made this luxury beach resort in the city the preferred venue for conventions, product launches, dinner dances, theme parties and other private events. Sun-bathed terraces, warm Sri Lankan hospitality, the promise of adventure, and period decor rooms with modern amenities whisper the promise of a magical stay at the hotel.
