So this place is more of a homestay than a hotel. It’s not nearly as nice as pictures (but I never really expect they are )
It’s started pretty badly as I had booked a deluxe double and upon arrival was told wasn’t available! So that’s annoying seeing as it clearly stated that’s what I’d booked. They presumed that by pushing two singles together it was acceptable. It was a completely different room.The room was small dark and quite unkempt to be honest. Cobwebs hanging from the ceiling and a couple of dead cockroaches. The rooms weren’t cleaned daily and my bin wasn’t emptied and I had to ask for loo roll. The breakfast was nice though, fruit and omelette pretty standard for Sri Lanka
The pool looks nice but not really for swimming in. The little garden was quaint, and the staff were nice and polite and got us taxis wherever we needed to go
There’s s small supermarket round the corner which was handy and I recommend eating at ‘paradise road the Gallery cafe.’
We stayed here with friends (2 couples) for 3 nights. While it is a quiet oasis in the city, think twice before booking here. The location of the pool - some bedrooms have windows opening to the pool - means that when guests decide
to have a swim at 10pm you will hear it!
The beds had a lightweight quilt/duvet which did not have a cover on it. Our friends reported the same on their bed. I am doubtful they are changed between customers and so their cleanliness is questionable (mine certainly had marks/stains on it). There were no top sheets provided either so it did not feel “nice” sleeping under the cover-less quilt. The bathrooms are just okay in terms of cleanliness and amenities.
Another consideration is the location - it is about a 20 minute to tuk-tuk ride from the city centre. If I had my choice again I would pick a place closer to the sights. NB: however within walking distance of the villa is Borella Cemetery - we had an enjoyable and interesting two hour walk around, reading old gravestones. The author Arthur C. Clarke is buried here.
Nevertheless the breakfasts were great and there was always plenty to eat. The staff were very pleasant and helpful.
Villa capers is a lovely little place to stay. It’s not in the centre of Colombo but we liked that actually. My wife and I stayed here for one night when we first arrived in Sri Lanka and it got us off to a great start too our travels. The staff were very friendly and helpful and the manager- Nilonga also upgraded us to their biggest room! Which was amazing! We had a comfortable night sleep and and we were served a simple but pleasant breakfast. The hotel has a swimming pool and pool table but we didn’t use them. Overall we were very happy with our stay and would recommend this to anyone.
My husband and I stayed here for our first night in Sri Lanka! We were given a free room upgrade as we are doing this trip to celebrate our anniversary.
We walked in and were utterly amazed by the size of the room! It was a big bed with drapes around it, dining table, living room and a nice sized bathroom! We had a balcony that opened over the end of the pool, which was beautiful! We were amazed by the standard of the room!
The staff were lovely and very accommodating! We would definitely stay here again given the chance!!!!
Spent 2 nights with other friends. Rooms are like a romantic scenery and staffs are Friendly. Location is also quite good yet some Tuk tuk drives are difficult to locate the hotel due to little inside the road. Pool is amazing like can access anytime and we haven't breakfast
