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

Belihuloya Rest house is at the bank of a small rivulet. There are some rooms with balconies opening to the rivulet. Food id Sri Lankan mainly and is good. The service is excellent. Swimming in the river with lots of boulders is quite interesting except for the locals coming from the other side of the river to disturb when you... More

Stayed at Belihuloya Rest House for one night whilst on a tour throughout Sri Lanka. Absolutely breathtaking location right next to a flowing river... but sadly, that's where the compliments ends! Rooms were covered in black mould on the ceilings and walls, which resulted in the entire room feeling damp (beds and bedding included). Bathroom was quite basic and on... More
