This is an old hotel, they have no air con but it is really nice. The dinner was just so so, the decoration was plain. The room is quite big tough. They have TV, hot water, bath tub, sensor light. What else? Those are rnough for me. Someone told me that this is the best hotel in this area. And... More

The orient hotel in Bandarawela is a good choice for a night or two. It is a midrange hotel, with quite large rooms overlooking the city/valley. Plus: - views from the room - excellent views from the dinner garden, and surprisingly good buffet - good wifi - very friendly staff (we liked the personal welcome message on the notice board)...

The views, from the 2nd & 3rd floor towards the entrance of the Hotel is refreshing and invigorating! That being said, it's the service of the gregariously friendly staff that makes staying at this hotel a must! On the 3rd floor there are many a lovely Suites and rooms; however I chose 230 for the 'energies' of tranquillity that I... More

It was a sudden arrangement to travel to Bandarawela with my family and I booked this hotel on the way to Bandarawela. I had not much expectations from this hotel during this sudden trip. When I reached there, It was a small hotel where you don't see much space with gardens and all. But their service beats every other thing.... More

When another hotel in Bandarawela didn't offer us the reserved rooms, we checked in at the Orient hotel. Very nice staff, friendly people. Room was fine. On the next day we were - as first guests - invited to the opening of its garden restaurant, situated in the garden above the hotel. What a great place, great food, lovely view... More

We spent a night here as part of our Exodus tour around Sri Lanka, and it was very enjoyable. The staff had heard that we were on our honeymoon and had us upgraded to the honeymoon suite, which was a lovely surprise! It was large and modern, and had a really nice view across the town! The hotel is well... More

Friendly and efficient staff. Dealt brilliantly with a power cut and didn't charge for dinner because of the inconvenience caused. Good WiFi throughout. Meals of decent quality both a la carte and buffet.

WE arrived at the Orient after an exhausting and long train ride. We were welcomed warmly by the very nice men at the front desk, and saw that a welcome message personalized to us wa written on the board. The hotel management and staff were very attentive to our needs and accommodated our dietary restrictions without hesitation. The rooms were... More

I spent one night at the Hotel Orient on 06-01-2015. On 7th morning I left behind my small Eastpak bag accidently, with important documents and my wallet in it, on a chair in the lobby. Mr. Sumith contacted me immediately and handed over the bag to me personally. After ensuring that everything was in its place I thanked him profusely... More
