This was the worst hotel we stayed in during our tour of SriLanka. Reception was rarely manned and if it was no-one spoke good English. When we arrived there was no-one at reception as the manager was at a wedding. Although the rooms are large the hot water never worked properly in the showers despite changing room 3 times. It...

I could have given it 2/5, 3 is generous. The property is rather nice, especially the reception area. Rooms are ok, although not well maintained, for example, my aircon unit was temperamental, electricity was dodgy as well. The main issue though is the level of service. Staff would frequently bang on my door for one thing or another. Food wasn't...

Just want to tell you, this is a terrible place and do not go there. I checked the reviews and saw they were mostly negative but I had to go because there were no lodgings available around the area for that time. (25th December 2015) The room was alright, the AC didn’t work properly, and there was a loud DJ...

Usually when I read bad reviews, I give them a benefit of doubt. But when I arrived at the hotel. I have to agree that the hotel is as bad as the negative reviews. Plus, we were the only people staying in the hotel. Pros:- -Rooms are big and spacious. Cleanliness ok. -Beds are comfy enough. -The hotel packed breakfast...

The place is in a small village and you won’t find much possibilities to eat outside, however we found a place in a 15min walk away (food there is really expansive). Rooms are standard and maybe the best of the whole hotel. Pool is a no-go. Besides the fact that there are many sources of inquiry especially for kids, the...

We only ended up here because we needed somewhere to stay for one night and our driver said this was OK. Oh dear. Everything was falling apart and broken. There was a kettle in the room but no tea or coffee or mugs. What is the kettle for? We asked for a glass for our beer in the room numerous...

The hotel would have been fine, but we had a very unfortunate incident happen here. We found one of the boys of the staff coming out of our room after breakfast--he said he had come to collect our bags, but he had clearly been in the room. It was odd, and we immediately checked our wallets and discovered to have...

A great place for a holiday or for a night or two after a visit to the Yala National Park. Extremely friendly staff and good food. Located around a large and beautiful lake with spacious rooms with a lake view balcony and swimming pool. You can be rest assured that the staff at the reception will be there to assist...
