2 Night end of holiday stay
Enjoyed our 2 night stay at The Kingsbury. Easy quick check in, clean spacious room and friendly staff. Just what we were looking for at the end of our holiday. Some areas are in need of a face lift but there was plenty evidence that these were being dealt with during our stay

Top hotel.
Fabulous hotel great service,staff,food,pool. Word of warning though , opt for a room not overlooking the pool as the music plays until midnight and if you want to sleep, no chance . The manager was informed about it and I informed him that I should have been told about the music when booking in and offered a choice of a quiet room .

The Kingsbury Colombo
fantastic hotel and great Staff
A++++ The chief concierge Mr Kumara helped our trip greatly. He organised train tickets to be picked up from the train station and organised the hotel cars when needed. I travel alot and this hotel is run like a well oiled machine with customer care and comfort at the forefront of thier agenda. Look forward to staying again soon.
