By rights, this hotel should be delightful, but failed on so many accounts!! The food was poor. The waiters and waitresses needed training and really didn't seem to know what they were doing. They also had a big attitude problem which meant us ripping into one of the waiters -not really our style but felt it neccessary. The pool has... More

A beautiful retreat to return to after an active day in the Sri Lankan countryside. Great little villas with everything you need - clean and comfortable,wonderful meals - though very large serves - and professional, caring and competent staff. Great swimming pool. WiFi available in central areas though we got reception in our room on occasions. Strongly recommended.

Superb hotel in well laid out gardens full of flowers and birds. The room was very spacious and comfortable. Buffet meals offered a wide variety of choice to suit all tastes and the service, by friendly staff, was excellent. A very good base from which to take jeep safari to Yala (c. 1 hour away). Lovely to relax in the... More

This place is a very calm place to be at. Rooms are also in good condition. The Pool is fine. The quality of food is very much acceptable. The staff here was also friendly.If you like to relax and admire the beauty of the nature this is a good place to stay. Cannot expect more for this price.

Well located with views over the surrounding paddy fields and away from the hustle and bustle in the area. Functional and adequate bedrooms with all amenities. Very good swimming pool to relax in and around. The service throughout was attentive and efficient. The food varied in quality-our first night's dinner was adequate, but improved for the second night. The breakfasts... More

Set in acres of lawns with trees, shrubs and flower, this is a really good place if you want to chill out by the pool, which is a good size with very shallow area for children to sit in and adults to swim comfortably. The welcome was friendly and we were soon shown to our chalet room in the grounds.... More

This hotel was one of six on our tour of Sri Lanka. Stunning gardens, restaurant staff very helpful and friendly, has its own resident crocodile in the pond!! We saw it from upstairs but it never bothers the clients (thank goodness). The only negative thing I would say is our room, no 21 was quite dark, and the lighting going... More

My wife and I stayed 1 night here.Very nice location at the end of a small road and very tropical setting with jungle and rice fields all around. The room was acceptable but in the bath room was too much insects. A small but nice pool area where we after some time also got some seating on the wooden sun... More

We spent a night in the Hibiscus Garden Hotel during our tour of Sri Lanka and we do not have anything to complain or to note about this property. The hotel location and the building are very nice and clean, the restaurant up stair with open view for the surrounding fields and peacocks, the rooms all around the swimming pool,... More

Our trip to Sri Lanka was beautiful, but our stay here was appalling! I know that there are lots of good reviews about this hotel on this site, but, despite all my other reviews of places we stayed (and there were 8 places in 3 weeks !) being good, I have nothing good to say about this place.
