I think this is the biggest buffet in town and the food is delicious and the sushi and sashimi counter is very impressive. There is also a pizza and pasta corner, everything was excellent we hope to come back thanks for the friendly service.

We had the breakfast buffet at Harbour Court. They had a very good spread - a mix of continental, Sri Lankan, Indian options. Loved the crossaints and cold cuts. And the watermelon juice, woodapple shooter. The staff were polite and professional too.

The food ordered was tasty and portions were good. Strawberry cheesecake was delicious. The food was delivered on time and the recipients were happy with the service and quality of the food. Would recommend Kingsbury Indulgence to friends and family.

We are German Citizens and started our holiday in Sri Lanka..I and my family checked in the Kingsbury Hotel on the 7 August , 3 Exec.rooms 902, 904, 906, for 3 nights. 1. we have experienced only terrible things at the hotel. loud music from the pool area goes till 1 am. Dinner restaurants staff are untrained.. Not greeting guests.. 2. Can not use the pool facilities at 7am in the morning because pool is dirty from previous night parties.. no towels available, no greetings from any managers. pool tiles are broken and it is danger .. 3. High Tea at the Lobby area .. staff are terrible.. only looking for rich and famous to serve. We had to pay lot of money even we had our valid gift vouchers.. No body is taking a responsibilitiy.. every one makes mistakes, but guests have to pay for their mistakes... ONLY a good place at the Kingsbury is BREAKFAST restaurant.. Head Chef of the restaurant makes his best to keep hotels guest happy and he and his team are doing a good job.. last day of our night was nightmare !!!! at about 5.45 am Loud music started from top floor.music band started to play live music while hotels guest ares still sleeping. I have called Reception to stop this .. They did not take any action.. Music band continues as they have agrees and paid for a wedding party.. It is a nightmare.. Please do not give out your money to this hotel.. Surprisingly, GM of the hotel ignored my request to meet him.... top to bottom of this hotel is required to serve thier guests at best level. This is based on our true and genuine Experiences at this hotel.. No one has paid or pushed us to write this review..

Nice property and facility, but unfortunately managed as a party temple, disrespectful for genuine needs of staying guests paying 5 star prices. Fitness centre is not open at advertised morning hours, swimming pool has been turned into the decor of the beach bar and therefore unavailable for a relaxed swim at end of working day. It took four attempts to correct my reservation.....
