We have spent a wonderful time in Serene park hotel in July 2016, which we would strongly recommend if you need place to stay close to Yala national park. The location is perfect, with most wonderful view on paddy fields, the lake, and the Buddhist temple. Our room in the second floor was perfectly clean, modern equipped, spacious, quite, and...

Manager clearly said that he welcomes locals and foreigners in a different manner. Our experience was awful. He screamed at us when we asked to open the gate around 10pm. He couldn't control his temper and yelled at us in filthy words. So there was no option to go out in the night, the gate kept closed. View was nice....

Set in the middle of a paddy field this little hotel/guest house is a wonderful place to spend one or a few nights. The rooms are spacious, clean and well presented. The chef makes the best Rice n' Curry in Sri Lanka. We even got egg hoppers for breakfast - such a treat. The surroundings are so tranquil you don't...

We were very impressed with Serene Park. Even before we arrived, we had a feeling of goodwill from the host. We made contact soon after arriving in Sri Lanka, asking if they could assist us with organising a safari, as we would only be staying the one night. Not only did they arrange a safari, but when we realised 4...

What a lovely place. We had the big first floor room with a large communal covered patio right outside. Must be one of the best views of the lake in Tissa. There are a couple of hammocks on the patio and easy chairs. Downstairs is the large open eating area and reception desk. Everything is spotlessly clean. The owner/manager Jagath...

This place is a perfect place to stay for a trip to Yala national park. The interior is european, rooms and facilities are spotlessly clean. A very nice room with a/c for a very reasonable price. Great view over Tissa Lake. The host drove us to Ella and showed us Kataragama on the way for a very fair price.

Home cooked best quality food for dinner. Quiet and clean, no shops or restaurants in the surrounding. The TV set in the dining area can be switched off. Comfortable beds and bathroom, air condition and wifi perfect. Illumination for reading in the bed could be better
