I got a nice big room with a soft bed. The pool area is small, but okay. The breakfast is not really worth mentioning - one egg and two slices of toast for the safari. Very kind staff. Bla, bla, bla, 200 characters.

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.

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
