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

Arrived today and then read some reviews about the hotel some of which were negative. Our room was spacious and clean and being at the front gave us a nice view towards town. Had the buffet dinner and it was delicious. Service in both the restaurant and the bar was excellent.

There are very few hotels at Bandarawela as such. Orient was nice for a night's stay. We had to book this hotel as all accommodation at Nuwara Eliya was full and this place was the closest. Nothing so great about the hotel in terms of rooms and ambience. Food was of very average quality. But hotel staff was very helpful.

The orient hotel was the fourth hotel we stayed in during our Sri Lankan tour. We stayed in the extension of the hotel. After walking in a long hallway, we arrived in our room. The room was clean but quite old and the bathroom and toilets had a window (or rather grid) facing towards the hallway. This was quite weird.... More

We spent two nights here as part of a tour group. Food was average and staff friendly, but service was erratic. Room was clean but bathroom vented into corridor so noise travelled. Layout is quirky but charming.

Orient Hotel is a large hotel, with a lot of Asian people in it (ironic). The food wasn't that great and there was not a lot of choice. There were flies on the salad and the shrimps were not even warm. The room doesn't have AC and the fan was broken. The bathroom is ok, but there was dirty stuff... More
