Good-sized room, fine view of the lake, quiet location - good. Buffet supper and breakfast - not good. Each time the food was lukewarm and rather sad; the breakfast in particular was the least impressive we had in Sri Lanka. It ought to be possible to get a tuk-tuk into town and do better.

This was the first night of a 10 day tour. This was the B&B provided by our tour operator. The view from our balcony was the best part of the stay. We had to move rooms as they were relatively disorganized on our arrival. From the way our driver was talking to them we think they were not expecting us....

We stayed here because it was recommended by the manager of the hotel we where staying in another town. For about 17 euro's we got a clean simple double room with fan, hot water and huge beds. We didn't use the wifi, so can't comment on that. We expected more because of the recommendation, but in the end it was...

Rooms were quite large& very clean, TV channels were numerous, view of lake was nice. Restaurant food was of a good Sri Lankan quality. This is very tucked away & a little tricky to get to but at the price we paid, we were very happy to get what we got. Would not recommend if you don't have a driver...

My family (2 adults and 2 kids) stayed here at the start of Oct. The place itself is nice and clean and very good value. The people, however, are what makes the place amazing. They could not do enough to help us, this was hugely refreshing after the experience we had had in central Sri Lanka. The rooms are simple...

The family, who runs the place, is also very kind and helpfull. It took us only 10minutes to get to the center of the city by...

We stayed here for two nights, the family that run it did everything they could to help us. It's in a beautiful location by the lake and perfect to explore Yala national park from. Affordable, i would recommend it to anyone.

We stayed at Lake View hotel for one night after visiting the nearby Yala National Park, bit difficult to find but it is clean & staff are very friendly, breakfast was freshly cooked & very nice, rates were very reasonable. But by far the best reason to visit is the view over the lake which is breathtaking, with a herd...
