Nice setting close to lake, nice garden, small swimming pool, rooms just big enough, mosquito net installed, big but smelly bathroom. Decent food. Ok for one night.in-room wifi slow, in restaurant ok.

Lake Side Tourist Inn is in a scenic location across the road from the lake and just a short walk into town. I chose Lake Side because it has a swimming pool. Unfortunately, the pool was quite murky and not the cleanest, but it was a windy day. Air conditioning was an extra $12 a night and so I chose... More

Hotel was booked through our tour company. The rooms were basic and mattress was quite hard but shower was good! We mainly stayed here as a base to go to Yala national park. They were great though in packing our breakfast so we could take it early in the morning when we left for Safari. Not a bad stay at... More

We arrived as whoever was next door began to party! Loud music and singing late into the night. To be fair Sri Lanka was still in the throes of New Year Celebrations so we couldnt complain too much and since we were pretty exhausted at the end of each day whilst touring - we slept okay anyway! The rooms were... More

We came to this place because of our driver that booked this hotel. Apparently every driver is taking their customer to this place. the cash back must be pretty high since the hotel offers really poor accommodation. The swimming pool was almost ok, the water was just full of chlore. Hot water was not working so you better rush to... More

We stayed here for 1 night to go to Yala. We just hated it! The rooms are ok, very dated and basic but clean. We could not be in the hotel for 5 minutes without being disturbed. They all wanted to offer us safaris, transport, dinner,... They even knocked at our door or followed us outside. Don't stay here!
