Rooms were quite large& very clean, TV channels were numerous, view of lake was nice. Restaurant food was of a good Sri Lankan quality. This is very tucked away & a little tricky to get to but at the price we paid, we were very happy to get what we got. Would not recommend if you don't have a driver... More

My family (2 adults and 2 kids) stayed here at the start of Oct. The place itself is nice and clean and very good value. The people, however, are what makes the place amazing. They could not do enough to help us, this was hugely refreshing after the experience we had had in central Sri Lanka. The rooms are simple... More

We stayed here for two nights, the family that run it did everything they could to help us. It's in a beautiful location by the lake and perfect to explore Yala national park from. Affordable, i would recommend it to anyone.

We stayed at Lake View hotel for one night after visiting the nearby Yala National Park, bit difficult to find but it is clean & staff are very friendly, breakfast was freshly cooked & very nice, rates were very reasonable. But by far the best reason to visit is the view over the lake which is breathtaking, with a herd... More

Overall one of the best hotels we stayed at during our trip to Sri Lanka. Our room was wonderful, the bed was comfy, the mosquito net was good, it was cool (AC) and clean. Right next to our room/bungalo there were both papaya and mango trees housing a few fruitbats during the nights. The fruitbats are harmless and doesn't make... More
