Although arrived after stated check-in time waited for a further 2 hours before owner turned up. We were greeted with the news that there was no room...

As everyone says Harshi is wonderful. We flew in at 4am and as we came out of customs there was Harshi to greet us like an old friend. That set the tone for the whole of our stay. Frangipani is a real home stay in every sense of the word. Breakfast is a feast and the evening meals that Harshi...

My wife and I stayed one night here and really loved it. We had a big day's travelling to Sri Lanka and arrived quite late. Harshi, the host, greeted us so warmly, that it was if we were staying at a long lost friend's place. We didn't expect to be served dinner, but Harshi insisted that she would order us...

In my room I was wanting for nothing, it had everything I needed including a view over the city and of the sea. I challenge anyone to find a more hospitable host, she is friendly and helpful - if you need anything at all, such as directions or the best value for money she will direct you. The pricing of...

A homestay in the true sense!! We were welcomed with the words “this is your house”; and indeed it was! Food was on a platter at its best with variety, quantity and of course taste. It was an experience like never before with impeccable hospitality by Harshini. Rooms were spic and span with all details taken care of to make...

Staying here was one of the highlights of our trip, mainly because of the owner Harshi! A kind bubbly woman who can't do enough for you, including staying up to the early hours of the morning to maintain contact whilst we travelled from the airport to the house; greeting us with juice; offering to cook for us at about 5am!...

What can I say that other reviewers have not already stated. Stop looking for any other place to stay in Colombo, head straight to Frangipani., you will not find a better place to stay. Harshi has taken hospitality to a new level. We stayed in Frangipani for only a few days, def not enough, wish we could have stayed longer....

I'm so glad we stayed here. The host is a lovely bubbly warming woman, who will do anything to make you stay comfortable. She went out of her way to help us, from taking us to a spice grinding shop, to guiding us to the best shops and to taking us to the best place to exchange our money. It...
