I stayed at the hotel with my husband and 2 teenage children for 1 night in July which enabled us to go on dusk and dawn safaris (both of which were fabulous). The hotel is in a lovely setting with bungalows and the main reception and restaurant building located around an inviting pool. We were greeted with a welcome drink... More

I think Flyingbluedog is is a complete whinger. I stayed here in April 2015. Customer service was excellent, cannot fault the staff at all.They made us feel so welcome and recommend this hotel to anyone. Great accommodation and a beautiful outlook from the restaurant. I would not hesitate to stay here again. What an embarassment you are flyingbluedog from the... More

We tour for a week stopping for a short stay in different hotels, then stay at the beach for a week. we stayed here for two nights prior to moving on to the beach stay. On arrival we were the only guests in the place, and our evening meal... More

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
