Nice quiet place, small pool, friendly staff. Negatives are, small rooms, smelly bathrooms, no proper drainage system. Water from bathing comes on to the garden. Food, definitely should be ordered from outside. The forest at the back is unaccessible.

The way up to the hotel is rather steep, but when you arrive, you will find a paradise with nice rooms, a pool to relax, super friendly and helpful staff. Breakfast was incredible, inclusive the best "scrambled eggs" we tasted in Sri Lanka.

We had a lovely stay here, if only for one night. Very friendly owner who is very helpful. Nice clean room where everything works. Good WiFi. Lovely little veranda areas with your rooms. Good pool (although it is icey cold!) Nice garden surrounding and quiet. Only downside is it is up an absolute killer of a hill... seriously hard anyway...

Family room rather small, no mosquito nets, smelly and wet bathroom. Breakfast really not good. You had to ask for any service - towels, toilet paper, glasses, anything. Not too far from town, but on a steep hill. No fridge, no tv, wifi only at reception. Nice pool, but often it is too cold for swimming, so I recommend to...

Rooms are very clean, pool is nice but a bit to cold in september. Friendly staff and really close to 'city' center. Good place to stay! Good prices as well. Nearby the trainstation and you're sleeping in a green enviremont!

We've been in Forest Paradise for one night. Our room was good and clean. We've had a mosquito net and a nice view all around the room. The place was in construction, therefore we might have been there one year too early. They are going to build a pool and some more rooms. But that's not a matter. Our Stay...

When we went there were constructions so we were almost alone in all the place. I guess there were constructing a pool which could be very nice. We stayed only one night. Host was very helpful and talk a good english. Sheets were almost clean and shower had hot water. It was pretty nice !

Pro: The place is very calm as some minutes foot walk away from the big street. The bungalows are simple but in a lovely style. We felt save although it would have been easy to open the old windows with bare hands. The curry is rich of variation and so can be the breakfast. The garden was useful for our...
