I had few issues in the room but all those issues got wiped out of a phone call from Facilities manager Dushi because I left my wallet with money jewels and credit cards, Room attendant Pasindu informed the supervisor and they contacted me immediately, I really appreciate his honesty and wish them all very best of luck and continue the same service.

Kingsbury Hotel is one of the best places for a stay. I checked in to the hotel for our honeymoon stay and we both were super satisfied with the services they provided us! I must say that the food is gorgeous over there and are served in large portions which is really worthy for the money we spent. The hotel ambiance and cleanliness too was in great quality!

Mini-Vacay for New years 2020”

It was my first time at Kingsbury and I was traveling with my family, a group of 4. Since, it was News Years Eve, the hotel was very busy and buzzing with people. At our check in, we got informed that the rooms we made reservations for, were overbooked. They were extremely attentive and helpful throughout this process. Additionally, the hotel staff were kind enough to bump us up to the executive floor with a room for myself and my parents for the same rates we booked our previous rooms. We had the best view of the fireworks and dinner at the executive lounge. Throughout our stay, Shiwangi and Lasantha at the Executive lounge were of utmost help. We had an issue with our room one night after we returned. The ventilation system was filling the room with cigarette odor (and our room was non-smoking) whereas no one in the room smoked. Shiwangi attended to the problem promptly, consulted with her senior and immediately offered us another room on the same floor. Our former booking was just for 2 nights since we had plans outside of colombo. But, we changed our plans and had to stay at the hotel for another 2 nights (total 4 nights). Again, without any delay after consulting the staff we got the green light that we would be able to stay at the hotel for another 2 nights. The whole process went smoothly and without any hassle during our entire stay. Overall, it was an exceptional experience and I would like to highlight the friendliness and approachable attitude of the staff working at Kingsbury. Definitely recommend it.
