First of all don’t forget this is a 2 star hotel and I think some of the present reviews forget that. Location is actually quite good and perfect for a morning or afternoon jeep tour in Uda Walawe National Park … plenty of wild elephants, eagles, crocodiles, jackals and buffalos … don't miss the safari if you can. There was...

The lake side location of this hotel is great. However, the hotel lobby is currently under renovation, and therefore the windows and curtains are constantly closed, turning the main lobby and restaurant area into a sauna. However, the newly renovated rooms are very good, and the bathrooms are top notch. The food is not really very great, basic buffet dinner...

This was one hotel chosen to stay for the night on our office trip. First i did not have a good impression since its build some time back and read some bad reviews about it. And insisted my manager and the rest of the people to shift rooms to some other hotel. However we had to spend the night at...

An old hotel now undergoing a large extension & the rooms have yet to be done. Food was served in a huge ballroom style restaurant, a long way from the kitchens so arrived cool. Quality of food not brilliant e.g Beef Stroganoff was made with chopped smoked sausage which was almost inedible!

We spent 1 week doing an Ayurveda treatment at Centauria lake resort. We were welcomed warmly and all the staff was very considerate, friendly and helpful. The room was nice with a balcony overseeing the the beautiful lake. The food was excellent. We got a diet according to Ayurveda principles comprising authentic Sri Lankan food. The treatments were excellent and...

I agree with the comments that this hotel is OK for overnight stay but I would not want to stay here for a longer period. The rooms are quaint and quite big but very out of date and could do with a complete modernisation. The bathroom was huge with wet-room type shower but again very old and tatty. Because the...

I can only gather from some of the other reviews that we were very lucky here. We did choose a superior room and thus got a large and clean room with a balcony and views over the lake. Limited choice at dinner but the food was well cooked and service was willing if slow. My wife had her best night's...

Only stayed here one night en route to safari. Very quaint and cheerful - The staff are really friendly and helpful. The rooms are huge, albeit very outdated, the only downside is they smell really badly of damp. Bathroom very outdated but again huge - shower huge. Lovely balcony with soft seating. Stayed on a full board basis, and dinner...
