Clean, comfortable budget hotel with friendly staff. I am a photographer and came to attend the Kataragama festival. What made my stay memorable was the generous owner, who was able through his connections to arrange for me to sit at the very front of the festival parade and (as a woman traveling alone) be a guest of the friendly Red...

We rented two rooms and both were modern, comfortable beds, clean, quiet air con. Excellent value too. Breakfast was ok though would benefit from use of a proper toaster for toast rather than it being made on a sandwich maker.

This is newly built hotel which is much closed to the Kataragama Devalaya and Sella Katagama. Rooms are very clean, full of modern furniture and bathroom fittings. Also they arrange safari tours from there. The Manager and the friendly staff gave us excellent service during the one day stay at there and which is value for money.

We booked this hotel because it was recommended by some of our friends. The reservation handling was pretty good and as per the website we were expecting something good (not as good as a 5 star hotel but some reasonable standards given the price we paid). There is some construction in the hotel but the villas seemed very nice and...
