Good hotel, service could be better

Posted Apr 21, 2014
Good hotel with nice facilities and restaraunts. The service could be better, the staff seems always too busy to help even when there is not too many people around. Almost every thing I needed I had to ask twice for. If you don't have a VIP sticker on your check in card, I don't think they care all that much. Service was much better at the Taj Down the road.

As first stop in Sri Lanka it provided great ambiance, plenty of space to relax over a drink & it was well situated. Good for gourmands especially the fish restaurant.

Nice hotel however the main pool was closed

Posted Mar 3, 2014
Pros: The lobby and rooms were very clean. The 24-hour, on-site travel planners were great!
Cons: We should have been notified that the pool was undergoing maintenance and was closed.
Location: Shopping, beach, spa.
Staff were generally very helpful, pool was closed which was unfortunate, rooms were very clean. Service was very poor at the smaller breakfast buffet.

Best hotel in Colombo

Posted Feb 3, 2014
Pros: Clean hotel, beautiful... many restaurants to choose from Pool two gyms!!! Tennis court and SPA!!
Cons: Nothin. Perfect!
Location: We had a tour guide so they always came to pick us up! Easy !!!
We switched hotels while on vacation. We stayed at Pegasus Reef Hotel. It was ok, but no restaurants :( It was far from Colombo but near beach. We decided to switch to Cinnamon Grand and so happy we did!!! The hotel is beautiful! Tons of restaurants and room service was amazing as well!! I would recommend this hotel 1 million times!!

Location: Close and walking distance to galle face green for a early evening stroll with the locals.
Great place, great staff. Eat at the traditional village restaurant - although we didn't try all the other options as we only stayed one night. They served traditional Sri Lankan food which was delicious, outside and under lovely trees. We had a room on the top floor which had great views and you could see the sea ( a bit!). Overall would definitely recommend.

Cinnamon Grand is indeed grand.

Posted Jan 20, 2014 on Hotels.com
When writing a review I like to take into consideration all aspects of the stay, including what country I am in. I was not sure what to expect in Sri Lanka, but I must say I was very impressed with the Cinnamon Grand. Staff is super friendly and the rooms were very clean and comfortable all though a bit out dated. Food was great in all of the restaurants I sampled on property. They only thing I found a bit annoying was the room service. Not matter what time of day or not the service carts and vacuums were in the hallways. With the hallways being kind of narrow I always had to navigate around them. While not horrible it did kind of take away from the elegance of the hotel itself. I am also not sure if there was a shortage of wash cloths or not but I always had to request more be put in my room. Would I stay there again….absolutely!
