Cinnamon Lakeside Colombo

5.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

I have been staying for more than two months on my business visits from Oman air and I always choose Cinnamon Lakeside because all the staff are more like family. Starting from Nishantha and Sanjeewa who are extreamly helpful at all times and they know exactly my likes and dislikes. Gayani and Shannon always makesure im fully comfortable and look into all my needs. Though i have stayed in many hotels around the world with amazing rooms and facilities nothing can beat the service of executive floor of this hotel. Im sad to leave this time but I know I will be back at the same hotel next month.

Very nice property centrally located .new years eve was well organised.supportive staff .found little problem with veg food .very nice bars n Reastaurent in the hotel .beautiful swimming area .hotel located very close to casino. All shopping area also close by .really enjoyed our stay .will like to go back again .

staff doesn't show commitment to their customers... When we arrived they waste our time in check in desk. The first check in desk was very rude!!! the other one was kind but very slow!!! staff of the traveling help desk just want to sell their services and as soon as they get that you dont want to buy their tours they will stop guiding you about sri lanka!!! The hotel location is good and it is a very clean hotel but should work on its personnel behavior... overally Colombo is not a good city to visit.It doesn't have any good place to see and taxi drivers just want to charge you more....

The food and the beverage were nice. I have morning coffee and dinners here and the staff was very kind and helpful. They have recommend me one of the best the local beer to me. Especially thanks to Mr. Curator Anas!

I have been patronising with Royal Thai for almost 2 years ...both with my family and business partners...have to praise Chef Kapila and Manager Kariywasam on providing an excellent service and its consistency.

Kudos to the chef and the F & B team for laying out one of the best brunches in town. The spread is massive and well worth the price. Need more publicity for sure as we stumbled on it by accident. Will be coming back for sure!

We stayed at cinnamon lakeside for a couple of days on our way through to the Maldives. This hotel is part of the cinnamon group, and is a very worthy part of the family It was a perfect place to chill out with a great hotel layout, good eating establishments, a lovely bar overlooking the lake, a very nice swimming pool and a very warm & friendly staff. Since, we got a good deal on trivago for the rooms, it worked out as fabulous value for money as well All in all it was a perfect place to kick-start our vacation!!

I have been frequenting Goodies coffee shop almost daily for the past year and would simply like to acknowledge the excellent service provided by the staff. Though all are of a very high standard, Dilrukshi and Mirag stood out as being particularly attentive, so I wish to highlight their positive work ethic in this review. Many thanks, and I hope to continue visiting Goodies for many years to come.

My wife,daughter and I stayed again at this absolutely First Class Hotel. The room was spotlessly clean and very comfortable. There are several excellent restaurants and a 'snack bar' called Goodies. The staff are very courteous and helpful. VERY HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

When I say "noisiest Library in town", it's in a very good way. This executive lounge/nightclub is a very exquisite one in Colombo. Food, staff and the setting is very good. The night entertainment is simply great. Hats off!
