Recent guest reviews

We hosted our engagement party at Cinnamon Lakeside Colombo for 120 guests and couldn't have been more blown away by the location and service. The hotel provided a beautiful backdrop for the event, the food was absolutely delicious, and our event coordinator, Emelka, was exceptional. She helped with every small detail and had the best recommendations for decor, music, photography, etc. The party was planned remotely by my parents in Canada, so having someone so reliable and organized at the hotel supporting the nitty gritty details was fantastic. Absolutely recommend!

Dear Management. Just wanted to let you guys know that I had an amazing experience entertaining my mother and family on her birthday. All thanks to Anuradika who made the total experience memorable! Thankyou Anuradika for your top service!

Always good to be back at cinnamon lakeside where people always have a ready smile and are very welcoming and helpful . Stayed at the Exec floor on business and this is perfect for the business traveller . Comfortable and clean room, lovely lounge facilities with evening cocktails combined with a relaxing atmosphere. A special thanks to the 4 musketeers who made my visits to the lounge memorable - Sanjeewa, Lucky, Asmi and Nisantha . Also thank you Ishan and Ranisha for a speedy check in and being attentive to my needs. Definitely one of my favourite hotels in Colombo.

We stayed one night on the executive floor which was really great. The room was spacious and had beautiful lake views. The staff were very friendly and helpful. They make every effort to make you happy and comfortable. You are spoiled from the time you arrive. The executive lounge is a great place for guests to relax, read a book or enjoy a meal/drink. They offer complimentary culinary presentations at different times of the day. Nishantha and Sanjeewa fed us throughout the day with delicious food; and by dinner time we were so full that we didn't go for dinner. The following morning we could have had breakfast in the lounge, but chose to go to the dining room for the buffet. It was the best ever breakfast buffet I have had in Sri Lanka - with such a variety of local and international cuisine. I highly recommend the executive rooms of this hotel. You pay more but its really worth it. The ambience, service and the beautiful smiles make your stay extra special. Until we meet again, my thanks go to Ishan, Alex and Raneesha.

I booked the pontoon, '8 degrees on the Lake' for the second time, recently, in March 2018 for a welcome dinner/reception for my daughter Armina and her husband Ural, when they visited Sri Lanka. The service, from the time of booking, to that of the service on board the pontoon was excellent and so pleasing, especially that of the Manager (I feel so sorry I cannot recall his name) who was supervising all dining arrangements onboard. The floral and other arrangements handled by Cinnamon Lakeside, were tasteful and elegant, and the food was delicious.It was an informal and fun experience for all my guests, with no hassles, and we had an enjoyable time.

In March 2018 together with my wife, we had 2 short stay at the hotel ( 3 nights and 4 nights). We stayd at 7th floor ( Ececutive floor). The people there ( Nipu, Azmi, Sanjeewa, Nishanth and Lucky) are all doing the outmost to make the stay in Colombo as easy and comfortable as possinle. The attend and complete all our wishes and needs, that be inside the hotel and what we need to do outside the hotel. Therefore, I strongly recomend the hotel to all who wishes to exoperience a hotel that is like a resort in the middle of a busy city.

We stayed in the one bed room Suite which had a large balcony viewing the swimming pool and the lake. Room's furniture seemed a bit old and frankly didn't like the wood pained with black. Room seemed dull and dark. Room service also weren't unto the standards. The hotel has a great dining varieties. We started with the Sushi bar which was tasty and what made it special was the warm service by Ruwan, he knows a lot more than his job. The Lounge staff were also very good specially their head whom I missed his name. The Fin Chinese restaurant was a good experience as well with a tasty dishes and reasonable prices. Pool bar staff were decent and prompt services. With a rich menu. I would classify this hotel more as a business accommodation although we as a family had a great fun. The Audi taxi service was an excellent advantage, with a reasonable prices you can easily reach to any city destination. Chick in and out was very smooth, lots of front desks smiling staff. I remember Isan who welcomed us professionally.

One of the best Thai restaurant in Colombo. food was very good. good services. naveen is very knowledgeable boy. yellow curry prawns is tasty. lovely experience. hotel is very beautiful. I will be back in soon again.

My girlfriend and I stayed at here only for the one day, but the hospitality and standards over the hotel were exceptional. We had been down in Unawatuna for a friends wedding, which was amazing. Cinnamon hotel was a very pleasant way to finish off our trip in Sri Lanka and very good value. The staff were great and I was looked after by Hasitha - Lobby Lounge.

The food was great - especially the Thai green curry and the garlic and black pepper snapper. We were very well looked after by Captain Madura and Darshan and the Royal Thai staff - thanks for a lovely meal :)
