We stayed three nights here and couldn't fault anything about the hotel. The food was great, the rooms great, the staff very friendly and helpful and the views fabulous! A great base for attractions like the Dambulla Cave Complex and Lions Rock. Highly recommended!!

We stayed in this hotel for two nights during our tour of Sri Lanka, we found it very relaxing with great views of the mountains. I had a lovely message in the spa ... Would recommend having the Sri Lanka message.

one of the first hotels in Giritale overlooking the Giritale Lake. Beautiful view. Very hospitable staff, attentive and caring. Check in is speedy and efficient. Meals are excellent with a chef who rises to all occasions and a variety of pastries, desserts and main meals. A hotel worthwhile repeating if one yearns for relaxation or site seeing.

Large bedroom with settee and excellent bedding. Room was newly refurbished but it was a pity the bathroom wasn't. Lot of refurbishment being carried out in the public areas at present and when finishes they will be very high quality. Becomes an excellent place to stay but please sort out the bathrooms!! Good grounds, SPA and amenities

Room is comfortable and clean. There are two chairs, small table and a TV. It's a bit crowded. Bed was firm. Bathroom is... More
