Great little place
The Villa in Lavinia is a great little place tucked away from the hustle and bustle of Colombo proper which is a few minutes away though there is plentiful supply of taxis (Uber) and tuk-tuks so it was not an issue for us. Although the location is closer to the beach there aren't many things to do locally so the taxis do come handy. Facility wise, the room and the hotel in general was in good clean condition and the pool (although small-ish in size) and surrounding area was well kept. The only real issue we had during our stay is the daily power cuts for which the hotel didn't have generators for at the time.

8/10 Very good

Staff were pleasant and obliging - although initial requests made at booking were not met. The manager's personal attention to promptly solve a technical issue was very much appreciated. Location is good. You get value for money and I liked the homey feel of the villa. The building itself is very nice but needs upgrading e.g. plug points should be changed to square from round; fan in my room was noisy; bedside lamps would be nice; amenities were just two tiny lumps of soap. Bring your own.

2/10 Poor

Location is also not that good. Wifi was pathetic. You cannot connect in your room and when it is connected it was very slow. After that in evening there is a power cut and hotel doesn’t have anpower back up. When i asked then came to know that power cut is also in morning from 0830-1130 and evening 1700-1800 or 1830. I checked out in morning as soon as i got up. Worst experience of hotel.

8/10 Very good

Very good value. Small touches would take it up a notch e.g. a bedside lamp, upgrade TV set to a slightly larger one. Nice grounds and plants/trees. Although the rooms were smallish, it was nice that there was an open-ness in the common areas. Well designed. Every single member of the staff was extremely helpful and communicated well in English (apologies if it sounds patronising; but English is not so widely spoken nowadays). Would definitely stay there again.
