Excellent stay”

Excellent stay at Mount Lavinia Hotel. Fantastic location and really helpful, friendly staff. I stayed for a week and extended my stay by one night with Agoda - rate was excellent, and the helpful reception staff were able to let me keep the same room for the one day extension. The food at dinner and breakfast (I was half board) was very good, and a very good room service menu for lunch. The pool was lovely. Highly recommend this hotel.

I’ve given max points as this hotel and staff deserve it from my heart. Do be mindful and forgiving that it’s in need of some TLC as it resurfaces from the aftermath of Covid and the economic downturn in the country.
