The staff is excellent, the pool is amazing, and the food is delicious!”

We stayed at Kingsbury for two nights and had a wonderful time there with great value for money. On Friday night, we enjoyed live music by the pool with half-price beer, which was fun. We would like to give a special thanks to Isuru and Imesh for their great support and professional service at the lounge room. They were patient with our kids and provided the best experience for our family. We will definitely stay here again.

The place to be in Colombo ”

Thank you everyone for your service. After a long day I arrived to the hotel and the friendly receptionist welcome me with a great smile. My room was ready and all formalities done. Ice tea welcome drink was delicious! Upon arrival of my room there was a very strong cigarette smell and the luggage table was very dirty enough to me decided to be back and ask for a room move. As room was not what you can provide. The porter was super helpful and I went back to reception where I received a sincere and warm apology thats how . The receptionist Told me she will be upgrading my room to executive floor (not my intention or request but as I said cannot sleep on the previos room which supposed to be non smoking). New room was as other visits and as expected. Super clean. No cigarettes smell and your linen have such a nice aromas. I have ordered room service where from time to time you need to call back more than once. Maybe very busy but the staff always super friendly. Food temperature and quality can be much better. Breakfast is beautifully arrange and very good selection. Unfortunately upon acknowledgement of my room and been on the table which was not 100% fully set up. Good quality of food was ok but for sure you will find what to eat none of the staff except in tea service time was able to recognized I was new guest and no interaction at all; no buffet orientation; no service review or even as simple as my tea was served with no spoon and sugar. The waiter super friendly fixed. but I got the sense can be much much better. All the chefs ready to help and with a great smile Pool. Facilities very good and again the gem of your hotel is your staff but I believe that they need to concentrate and make sure your guest are look after; this happened but not with everyone on duty specially in one time that I was the only one there. I have made some requests on my reservations and were not acknowledged. I’m ok if those not available but will be great to inf

Had a good time”

We stayed at The Kingsbury Hotel Columbo for 2 nights last week. We had the Premium Suite to ourselves which was a good sized room, simply yet comfortably decorated and furnished with all the basic amenities. However, the highlight of our stay was not the room itself but the welcoming ambience and the extremely friendly, helpful and accommodating staff members. We were lucky to find Mr. Changa Gunasekara as our Guest Relation Officer who did not fail to address any of our concerns and queries. From recommending great restaurants at the hotel to assisting us with reservations, arranging a late checkout so we were comfortable till we left for the airport, personally attending to us in a polite and friendly manner Mr. Changa made sure our stay at the Kingsbury Hotel Colombo was a memorable one. Thanks a lot Mr. Changa and all the staff members at The Kingsbury Hotel Colombo.

The Kinsbury has become our go-to place in Colombo. Does it cost more than some of the other luxury hotels, yes. Is it cheaper than others, yes. The service here is impeccable. We bookended a trip here. We were here to have funeral services for my father-in-law. My husband was raised in America and did not learn Sri Lankan Buddhism. His cousins helped but assumed we knew more than we did. When we didn't know what to do with the pirikara, two employees, told us what to do, got us the brown paper, tape, and scissors, and cling film, so we could wrap everything properly for the monks. The restaurants are delicious, Yue Chuan is a favorite. The pool is easy to get in and out of and a nice temperature to cool off. The one negative about the pool area is they play loud music of the same 5-10 Western pop songs. If you have to sit on the side with the speakers behind you, it is too loud. Yes, I'm middle-aged and cranky about it! The second weekend when we came back, we were given a room with an ocean view and it was spectacular to just sit there and gaze out.

Nice Hotel and Amazing Hospitality ”

Stayed for 2 days and celebrated my birthday. Everything about the hotel was exceptional. Room itself was immaculate, stylish and well equipped and comfortable. The hotel staff was absolutely amazing. Their service was impeccable, and they were always friendly and helpful. Finally I want to mention about Mr. Razzaq ( Duty Manager) and Mr Channa ( Asst Manager @Honey Beach ) who is extremely hospitable & kind and always ready to help his guests from every aspects. My special thanks to them who made my birthday extra special and memorable.
