We stayed as a family at Hotel Kent for 2days on our trip to down south. The Hotel is off Thissa Kataragama road and the side road leading to hotel is muddy and in need of repair. But the Hotel is very well maintained. Staff is quick and efficient food is good. Pool small but good. Manager Wasantha is always... More

We stayed here as part of an organised private tour. So it was a lovely surprise to come to a venue that exceeded our expectations. We are huge rice and curry fans so on arrival at lunch they were quick to whip us up a delicious and spicy serving. The room is spacious with king bed and comfy sitting chairs.... More

Stayed as part of a stopover for visiting Yala and Bundala National Parks. Decent sized rooms and we requested for a triple which actually was a double bed and an extra bed which was not comfortable but quickly acted upon by the HSK Staff. Decent Pool and good responsive service whenever we had a request.The hotel suggested a Safari company... More

After days of being shaken around safari parks it was great to get to this hotel with its pool, air con and wifi. Nice big room with balcony, good hot shower and really helpful manager. Walk up to the New Cabana cafe for a fresh cooked, authentic rice and curry.

Very good refurbished hotel. Clean pool and good rooms, provided you book the NEW rooms. Older chalet rooms are OK, No wifi or internet. they are in the process of renovating so this maybe available soon. Easily access Katharagama holy site and to Safari jeeps for YALA and UDAWALAWE national parks.

We stayed here and visited kataragama religious area, we had planned to visit yala but turned out timing was not right to make the trip. The hotel is good and value for money but i think some more improvements needs to be done. If you are looking for basic accommodation with value for money then this is a good place... More

They have refurbished the hotel and the new wing looks pretty cool. Plus there is the old wing which is given at a lower price. (about Rs. 2000 for a double room, room only basis) We went with the group of friends and stayed over in the old wing. Obviously we didn't get any 5 star facilities, but the room... More

We saw lots of mid range rooms and the Kent had a big room with breakfast inc and a pool. It is a wacky hotel, but the rice and curry was excellent. Give Tissa a miss unless you are desperate to go on safari. This hotel was pretty good value for money. Double $25
