The Kingsbury

5.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

1. My request is 2 single beds, but the hotel gave us one king size bed; 2. When I go to take shower on the 2nd day, I requested hotel to provide more shampoo & bath gel, then I waited for 30 minutes, nobody send to me. I only complaint to Lobby Manager, this manager just let me hold on my phone and chat with anybody with her beside. Finally, I only could wait, wait, wait. 3. When we go to have breakfast next morning, there is no full tableware on table, only two knives. So I told waiter, 'If we use these tableware to eat?'. I requested coffee refill, just wait for 15 minutes, nobody provided service. This is only 1 star hotel, not 5 stars.

As a westerner, we didn't appreciate being assigned to a room on the same floor that has been designated as prayer rooms. Also, our room had a TV that required 3 members of the hotel staff to properly program and get it operational.

Great view of the city. Staff were polite and very helpful. Warm and welcoming atmosphere. Clean and comfortable room. Definitely stay there again

I have stayed here several times and compared to other hotels of similar category find the hotel staff's service to be great!

Stayed there one night arriving in Sri Lanka, one before leaving. Both times it was a great place to stay: great staff, great rooms, and great buffet!

few nights in city great location, good food, great staff have stayed here a few times and consistently good

perfect for quick overnight in Colombo, good breakfast, comfortable room, walking distance to Dutch Hospital for easy shopping

If you only have time like I do for a weekend getaway then the Kingsberry is the place.

Great location, spacious well appointed rooms, staff friendly, but avoid the food.

Very nice but the Taj is better. Watch out there is no airport shuttle and hotel charges over 5000 rp, it should be 3200 rp.

I stayed 3 nights, and I hope to get back again. The location was great, and the experience there was amazing. I loved it. One of the best hotel stays I have ever had.

Fantastic stay and enjoyed their restaurants and the gym

A luxury hotel and enjoyed their food at the Harbour court.

The location of the hotel was great however the customer service was a disappointment. I had called the front desk to complain about the extremely loud music that was filling my room at well past 2 o'clock in the morning. The manager on duty came up to the room right away, listened to the awfully loud music and simply said "sorry for the inconvenience" and left the room. That is just extremely poor customer service. Listed as a 5* hotel I expect much much more. I was extremely disappointed. One of the main purposes of a hotel room is to sleep in and I was unable to comfortably do so.

Staff was great. helped me with everything i need, and good location..
