Home stay feeling
Really nice play to relax. Little oasis in the busy colombo. A little bit difficult to find as it looks like a private house from outside. I recommemd use uber as you can fill in the exact address. We stayed in the suite and it was wonderful. Room is spacious and comfortable and bed feels like sleeping in a cloud. Highly recommended!

Perfect stay for a hectic Colombo
Our stay at the Highbury was wonderful. It really is a lovely place. The staff and owners were extremely kind and personable. They helped us with rides from the airport and around town. Sherlock was amazing! He drove us everywhere and took very good care of us. 5 stars for him!!! The breakfasts were a perfect way to start the day. This was exactly the kind of place I was looking for. Thank you!

Bed bugs
It was difficult to find the place (entrance isn't obvious and the reception is at the back and isn't always manned) and once we did, the hotel staff weren't particularly friendly. The hotel is nicely decorated but there were lots of mozzies. Worst of all, I found myself with bedbug bites after our stay. It was our final stop in Sri Lanka so very unfortunate.

2/10 Poor

Worst Hotel Experince in Sri Lanka
Photos are deceiving. We booked the family room and paid more then $200 for 2 nights. They provided us with 1 queen bed and 3 not so stable bunk beds. Toilet bowls were so dirty from previous usages of other guests. We found red ants on their tables. We were roaches near the bed side. Air con was not strong. Place was quite dirty. Their pictures are deceiving.
