It was shame that we could not feel by the sea much because of construction site next to the hotel although there was no noise issue for us.
They let us check in early morning. We could take a rest after long flight. Staff was very friendly.

The room could of been bigger.
The room in General was good but could of been a little bit bigger. Breakfast buffet was fantastic with so much choice. The other bars in the hotel offered great deals and food. Gym, sauna and swimming pool fantastic and very quiet considering the size of the hotel. Staff very friendly! Good value for money

There is no fancy views even in the suite room. Constructions going around the hotel ruined everything. So don't believe the pictures on booking.com. The real views from your room won't be even close to it. Some staffs show poker face when you smile to them which was weird. AC in room was too cold even you turn it to high temperature and low wind. I had to turn it off at night. There are some guys outside the hotel tring to defraud tourists but that is not the hotel's fault.
I think it's almost the best hotel you can stay in Colombo where the hotel standard is not high. It's bit old but got everything a five star hotel should have. Bed is comfortable. Breakfast is good. And the pool is clean.

There were a few small things that annoyed me, nothing major. Firstly the pool is really nice (infinity pool) but it looks onto a massive pile of rocks that are right in front of the sea so the view is awful (was expecting to be able to see the sea). Secondly we were on the 9th floor and there is a function room above which meant that there was loud music playing until 3am one night, the bed was shaking! We complained and got moved to another room, the staff were very helpful but it was still annoying Thirdly (and finally) when we checked there were a few anomalies on the bill (they charged us for the phone calls when we were complaining, they charged us for 2 taxis from/to the airport when we used one), these may be genuine errors but I am a cynic.
Hotel is in a convenient location for exploring Colombo (not that there is much to do). The rooms were very nice, clean and modern, pool is nice and the restaurants available were all very good. Fine for a 1/2 night stay before heading out to explore the country

Depending on the time of the day, the front-desk gets a lot of traffic and you may need to wait to check yourself in.
We stayed at the Kingsbury on two different occasions and will be willing to stay there again. Very good location that was far from the bustling city center yet offered good dining and shopping options nearby. Public beach was also accessible by a short walk. Personalized welcome note on the TV put a smile on my face. Plush interior and very comfortable bed. All amenities in place - cheers to good housekeeping. Our room was sea-facing and had a wonderful view. The management also allowed a very early check-in for my parents at no extra charge which was much appreciated. Breakfast buffet had a vast variety ranging from local delicacies to Mediterranean and English breakfast options. Quality food that tasted as good as it looked. Extremely helpful travel desk that gave us good tips on what to see in the city and arranged our itinerary around Sri Lanka. The cost was comparable to private tour operators. Vehicle was shown to me for my approval prior to booking and the driver arranged, was informative, friendly and accommodating. Overall a wonderful experience!

The first night the hotel had a graduation celebration on the floor above us and the music was very loud and it went on until 3.30am making sleep difficult. We complained the next day and was disappointed to only be given an apology but that night we found a bottle of wine and some food in our room as a token of their regret - which was something!
The swimming pool was lovely and we enjoyed being outside in the evening by the pool and being able to have a bite to eat in less formal surroundings

This hotel overcharged as I booked a room at $135 per night and got a abnormal bill at 25800 SLK rupees...roughly 50% more. One should check the price at the check-in as you should not trust this hotel for its honnesty and non transparent exchange rate. Be careful and possibly go elsewhere.
Nice room with sea-front view. The bed was very comfy. Clean room and good servicing.

Very less sri lankan cuisine ..
Most centrally located and value for money for the things and service they give ..

My daughter had severe sickness. I got an extremely bad stomach - twice! My husband got a bad stomach too. Cleanliness is questionable. The pool bar were drying glasses with a cloth that had just been laying around in the heat with flies about. Something made us all Ill (at different times) and we never went anywhere else as we were too ill to venture far.There is no easy access to the pool if you have a buggy. If you are in a wheelchair then this hotel really is not for you. The pool bar has music on (if you can call it music!). It is just a bass beat and goes on sometimes all night despite there being no one there. This can be heard in the rooms. Not sure this is a child friendly hotel because of the pool access and also the high chairs aren't suitable for any child under 3 years of age. They look good but not practical. Shame.. Was really looking forward to my week here and whilst there were some great things to say about the hotel the illnesses outweigh it.
Service. Staff were helpful and friendly. Although the staff in the seafood restaurant need more training. We had to ask for a menu after sitting there for 3-5 minutes. We had to keep getting up to the ice bucket to pour our wine (despite there being only 3 tables occupied in the restaurant!) I know, third world problems! Housekeeping were fantastic... My daughter was extremely ill and within a few minutes of asking for new cot sheets they were knocking on our door with fresh bedding.

Building work going on at beach area. Very noisy sat at pool.

I hated the remote control functionality. Long delays for command. This is in the days of mili-second IP networking availability. I had dinner at the seafood restaurant. I had lobster. Cooking.... so-so while service is medium rated.
From the doorman pleasant welcoming to Mr. Sandon top star service at the reception and coffee-room atmosphere and attendance, I felt red carpet treatment. It seemed both the hotel managers and staff had used the facilities extensively before putting it up for customers. Every detail in the room had been extensively thought of and dedicated to the tenant't needs. The pluses overshadows the minuses by miles.

Sky Lounge bar on the 11th floor may offer wonderful views, but starting 11 p.m. they have really crazy disco (which is a bit surprising considering the hotel level) so if you are staying on the 9th floor be prepared that the walls will be literally shaking till 3 a.m. every night. Better choose a lower floor from the very beginning. In general the hotel is a bit too noisy and crowded.
Very nice room, executive floor has a special lounge with drinks and snacks after 17 p.m., very nice swimming pool, great location.
