We stayed three nights at the Sorowwa Hotel during our roundtrip through Sri Lanka, visiting different places in the sorrounding area (e.g. Polonnaruwa, Sigiriya). We enjoyed the time very much, as the hotel is quite small and situated directly at a lake in a quiet area. The rooms are very specious, although the bathroom is a bit outdated, everything was...

We had a lovely, large room overlooking the lake. Comfortable bed and good bathroom. Lovely lobby area and restaurant overlooking the lake. Sadly the service lets the place down. There didn't seem to be any management. The restaurant was chaotic. We ate twice, first night returned the food and were not charged, second attempt, the food slightly better but much...

Fantastic view over the lake and waking up to the sound of frogs and birds in the morning was lovely. Good choice of food at the buffet and friendly staff who were keen to impress. The hotel didn't fair well in the rain with water making our balconey unuseable to enjoy the view from but only a minor matter. Fitness...

The facilities of the hotel are great, nice furniture, nice lobby, nice pool and great view. Unfortunately there were many bad things for the level of hotel it is and we were expected. The service of the restaurant is bad, we finished our dinner before we could get our drinks after asking for them several times, and they were not...

Stayed at Sorowwa for a night during our 6 day trip to SL. This hotel had large rooms opening up to a beautiful lake view. The restaurant staff were quite helpful in arranging vegetarian food for dinner which usually serves set menu. Bathrooms were a major let down, very dated & without proper ventilation. Did mention this in the guest...

This hotel was unfortunately one of the worst ones we stayed in whilst we travelled through Sri Lanka. The food is a set menu and wasn't the greatest quality, the room was a bit outdated and the wifi doesn't work anywhere but reception (first world problem). However the pool was lovely and the drinks were cheap!!! I'm not by any...
