  • It a very quiet serene place away from the hustle and bustle Of Colombo although situated in the heart of it .A good place relax gaming out yo the endless sea of green lawn
  • Friendly staff. Good parking. Food is realiable. Governor's pub is a nice place to relax with some good good. Quiet.
  • The surroundings, nature and atmosphere is a place like no other to be witnessed in terms of utmost serenity and beauty at dusk. However the staff turned out to be very unfriendly !
  • This is a members only club, but I have been invited often by friends who are members, and always enjoy the ambience.

Where to stay in Colombo

Despite its relatively low cost of living, Colombo accommodations tend to be fairly pricey. Close to the sea and the lake, as well as near the city's parks and the plazas, hotels come in the form of old colonial buildings and ultra-modern high rises, with a decent selection of each to choose from. Budget-conscious travelers should pay attention to the short rental options in the town's more residential areas, or look for the smattering of simple, but serviceable options close to the main train stations, and on the side streets set back from the waterfront.
