Staff that make you feel like home!

Pros: The staff, their friendliness, made me feel like home.
Cons: Pool tiling was coming off - looked like it needed attention.
Location: I was on business - excellent for meetings in the heart of Colombo.
This is my third stay at the Kingsbury, all on business. The staff at the hotel have not only made me feel welcome but they make it feel like home with their service. They go out of their way to make you as comfortable as possible therefore made my meetings more comfortable. Keep up the great work in professional development and customer service. I highly recommend the Kingsbury in Colombo.

Pros: Good location
Cons: Poor service, had to wait about 30 minutes after the check in time as my room wasn't ready & not even an apology. Saw 3 cockroaches in the bathroom!
Location: Just right
Facilities: Typical; Value: Over-priced; Service: Rude; For a 5 star hotel you should expect no cockroaches to be in your room, I saw three across the few days I was there. Better off going to other hotels
