Hotel Review

Boutique hotel and homestay fans will love Havelock Place Bungalow; a great alternative to Colombo's 100+ room hotels. Built in the 1940s this colonial bungalow features just six, individually decorated rooms. Some with four poster and private balconies others with antique dressers and quirky design features such as reclaimed signs above the beds. Guests can relax in one of several large sitting rooms, outside on the sun-dappled patio or in the small but refreshing pool. An oasis in the heart of this lively city it retains an air of calm despite being just a few roads back from the busy seafront. Havelock Place Bungalow's restaurant is also extremely popular (amongst guests and the rest of the city). Serving up 'home cooked meals' using local ingredients adapted to produce fusion Italian and Asian cuisine. From fresh seafood to zesty lemon tart: book your table so as not to be disappointed.
