It's a hotel + Restaurant. And best thing is the restaurant is by the belihuloya water stream. You can have a buffet lunch in peace. But the biggest issue is the buffet has no verities. It's rice with fe dishes. But i don't complain as it is one of the only places we can have lunch in peace. Will recommend... More

We used to live this place. The location, proximity to Horton Plains etc. This time, we decided would be our last. The place really needs upgrading. Really! Even the food has list the "rest house" taste. It is imitation 3star. I don't think we will go there again unless we read about radical changes for the better.

Stayed at Belihuloya Rest House for a single night (14th Feb 2014), with my wife and couple of friends. The place is located facing to the main road (Colombo - Badulla road), yet in a very calm and quite area bordering the beautiful Belihul oya. The location is perfect where you can get in touch with the belihuloya river, while... More

The location of the hotel is just by the side of Belihul Oya, which is halfway down when proceeding from Colombo to Bandarewela area. Ideal place to flex the body and to refresh lungs with fresh air. All rooms are by the side of the river and the sound of water flowing is a music to those who lives in... More

A scenic location in Ratnapura Bandarawela road. If you are travelling past this place to Moneragala, Haputale, Passara or Mahiyangana, this is a very good place for a stop. They have a Sri Lankan Lunch Buffet, and they serve a good cup of tea. Courteous service and you can even take a bath in the small rivulet flowing just besides... More

This is only a one star accomodation. The floors are just painted concrete and rooms smell very musty. The pillows were lumpy and smelly also. The location is great right on the river and national park on the other side where locals come to picnic and swim. I would recommend just coming for a meal as they were really good.

We have stayed in the Belihul Oya Rest House twice in previous years but would not stay again unless significant improvements are made to the rooms which tend to be damp and dingy. This is such a pity as the location of this place is perfect, alongside a stream and beautiful countryside. Now we visit for lunch when in the... More

Worst place we stayed in while visiting beautiful Sri Lanka. On our arrival, they knew nothing of our booking, seemed very disinterested in having us stay with them and the place was like a ghost town ... We did not sleep a wink, as the room stunk of mould, I had to throw the pillows off the bed due to... More

Rest houses in Sri Lanka was the best places to stay whilst on traveling during good old days. Last few decades we saw how the conditions started deteriorating. But few famous Rest houses like Belihuloya, Ella, Kithulgala,Polonaruwa, Sigiriya still maintained their old fame. Recently I selected Belihuloya resthouse on my way down to east. The appearance from outside was just... More
