After several bad experiences in hotels in Colombo, I sent my request to Uga Residents, even though it was early in the morning, the friendly manager Sithija responded immediately, he offered me a resonable price for the low season. I was pleasantly surprised by the warm welcome, friendly staff and large rooms with a huge bathroom and separete living room. The staff and the manager did their best to make my stay unforgettable. I felt like at home in that wonderful colonial mansion, everything was within reach, including the pool in front of my room and the restaurant with excelent food. I really enjoyed my stay from the breakfast which was delicious, lunch and dinner with my friends. The food was simply brilliant and unique, my compliments to the chief. The manager Sithija was so kind to keep my things while I was on the trip but also to hand them over to my driver who took it to my new destination. Uga Residence went out of their way to make me feel comfortable. I highly recommend this hotel to anyone looking for good accommodation, top service and a warm welcome.
