I didn't appreciate being falsely accused of not paying my bill in front of fellow travellers just as we were about to leave. This was done in an extremely rude, arrogant and unseemly manner. So much for the custom of 'saving face', though maybe it was a scam. So nil points for customer care and service. Also, the 'resort style'...

Stayed during mid March in a standard room. Views from the room were amazing. Staff were nice and friendly. The room was old and not soundproofed. Was able to listen to most of the conversations from next door and from the corridor. Also it didn't help that the hotel was quite busy during the time we visited. But the rooms...

Our travel agent in Colombo quickly changed our hotel booking to this hotel after we refused the booking at JC Village Dambulla. This is a fairly remote hotel with wonderful views over the lake. The staff are very warm and friendly. The rooms are fairly basic but clean and adequate for a few days stay.

The bedrooms are very gloomy so it's difficult to read. There would have been a good view but unfortunately the weather was too bad to see it as it rained all the time we were there and there was low cloud. Very dark in public areas so very easy to fall off steps.

Stayed at this hotel for one night with our Tour Group. Good, comfortable rooms with a good view of the tank, as they call it. Pool lovely but could do with more loungers, and a more attentive towel man! Very good food with lovely choice of buffet.

We had a very nice 2 night stay here. The views were stunning, and could be seen from the room, restaurant and pool area! The food was buffet style with a good amount of choice. Unfortunately on the first night there was a loud dripping sound after it had rained which kept us up a lot of the night. However...

Lovely room with great shower. Beautiful setting with a great view over the lake. However the food was not great and there isn't really much choice other then to eat at the hotel. It is mostly buffet style but you can have a la carte also. Staff were all lovely and there is driver accommodation. There is a pool but...

Good 3.5/5 Stayed here for a night as part of our private tour. Hotel is well presented had great public areas that overlook the lake. Food here was fine but the restaurant felt more like a dining hall. Fine for a short stay or if you want to relax a bit longer.
