Cinnamon Grand Hotel

Sri Lanka, Indian Ocean

The hotel

Surrounded by ten acres of landscaped gardens in the centre of Colombo, the large Cinnamon Grand Hotel combines grandeur with warmth and friendliness. All rooms have magnificent views of the city and amenities include two swimming pools and tennis courts! It's also the only Colombo hotel to have a shopping mall attached to it — good news indeed for the shoppers amongst you! If you love food this is the place to be with a wealth of restaurants serving international and Sri Lankan cuisine. Make sure you try The Lagoon, ranked as one of the city's top restaurants — and it's easy to see why.

We stayed a total of 6 nights i n a premium room - 3 nights before a 2 week trip around Sri Lanka and 3 nights after the trip. Both rooms were clean and bright, quiet, very comfortable, particularly the bed, with a view over the beautiful pool. There are 14 restaurants/bars serving a wide range of cuisines, good quality food and excellent service. The Breeze Bar beside the pool is a great place for an evening drink before dinner. All hotel staff we encountered were friendly, helpful and very professional. We were most impressed with Sam, the hotel client relations officer, who discreetly observes all that is happening in the large reception area, sorts out any issues, and takes new guests on an orientation tour of the hotel (very valuable as the complex is so large). Sam recognised and greeted us when we returned after being away for 2 weeks! The hotel has chauffeur driven cars for hire, including city tours, and you can easily get a tuk tuk on the main road outside the hotel. The hotel isn't cheap but given the quality, service and amenities in this hotel, it is outstanding value for money compared with other capital cities (where it is easy to spend more than $A200 a night for a very ordinary room; this is cheaper and far better).

We stayed in this hotel a while back in a suite. The suite was spacious and had a nice view. It had all the necessary amenities and it was clean. Our stay was a stop in our honeymoon and we had informed this at the time of booking. The suite was prepared for a couple on honeymoon with nice presentation of the room with balloons, sparkling drink, flowers and strawberries. The staff was very friendly and helpful. As soon as we entered the hotel we were taken to the suite and we were offered a quick and personalized check in. With the suite we booked we got the access to the Executive lounge for breakfast, tea and snacks during the day. The breakfast was a buffet consisted of local and continental items. Which were good in taste. One thing I mostly admire is the personalized service they offered. In my opinion, there are some aspects to improve. Specially the time taken to get food delivered to the room (in room dining). Anyway, I can comfortably recommend this hotel for anyone for comfortable stay. Read less
