Mr Toothbrush is back - almost to the exact date - one year later, right after Vesak. This time for 2 rooms x 2 nights - 3 bedders in each room. They just add another bed in the room. So what has changed ? The Check-in was quick - they did not give me any grief this time about the... More

An impressive modern hotel near the Yala National Park. The entrance and lobby is light and airy with lots of glass and check in quick. My room was upstairs( there is two levels of Accomodation) at the back so a very long walk but the benefit of a balcony overlooking the garden. Loved my large room which had stylish ambience,...

Food is poor. Staff is nice. I have been to this place many times because as a ritual I visit Kataragama every year. Room cleanliness has improved. No wifi. Gym is now in working order. Go for rooms in the upper floor.

Stayed here whilst visiting Yala National Park. The pool was lovely and the room was large, with a balcony and had a modern bathroom. The staff were friendly and attentive. The restaurant had a good choice of dishes both local and international cuisine so something for all. It's in a really good position for going to Yala National Park.

Great size rooms including huge bathroom with massive ceiling heights. WiFi only in lobby lets it down imho. At least buffet was innovative compared to other Sri Lankan hotels I've stayed but a la carte poor choices again. Good base for Yala safaris.

The accommodation was very comfortable and we loved the natural setting. The monkeys visiting us on the open varendah outside our room was charming. Service in the restaurant was exemplary and they catered individually to my gluten and lactose intolerant diet - a luxury I do not often get! The buffet meals had a great variety each day and each...
