I would say the rooms is worth the cost. We had to move from the first room into another which had problems with the bed in which we fixed by ourselves. You have a hot shower also and a comfortable bed. We had dinner there and was all disappointed. Everything was very spicy plus the meats on the mixed grill... More

Ampara is a sleepy town on the south east coast of Sri Lanka surrounded by jungles ladder with wild elephants. The area has several massive reservoirs built to enrich the agriculture based living. Montys is the only decent hotel we could find. The lobby and the hotel is developed tastefully. A large paddy field adjusant to the hotel adds to... More

We spent a night in this centrally located city hotel while on an engineering assignment for Hingurana Sugar Factory. What struck us was how they have found a nice spot facing the paddy fields, yet within the city. The place was well kept and rooms adequate and clean. Staff were exceptionally friendly, and helpful. The local food was superb. We... More

At the edge of the town, surrounded by paddy fields, this sprawling plant-filled place is peaceful and comfortable,with a large very blue and speck-less pool in its green tree-filled grounds. As other reviews indicate, don't expect everything to be in the pink of condition - why should it be? This is quite a remote area and one is not paying... More

We stayed in this hotel with our family for one night on the way to Passikuda. It is a good hotel. The staff is very friendly and food was good although little bit salty. Although they mentioned they have hot water our room did not have them. But the staff were able to provide hot water basket for children. There... More

I got to Ampara after 6 hours on a bus and this place was just paradise! The manager speaks a very good english (nobody does around this area) and organize everything for me, laundry, tuk-tuks... The staff is very helpful and polite. The swimming pool is just perfect to relax. The food is good and it comes in big quantities,... More

I stayed two nights at Monty Hotel, with friends. The hotel is conveniently located in close proximity to the Ampara town Everyone in our group was satisfied with the service, facilities and food provided by the hotel. I am surprised at the negative reviews. I had been to this hotel four years ago, and since then I notice a vast... More

I didn't get a great reaction to the fact that I was staying at Monty's, but I think it's really quite nice. Admittedly, the facade as you drive up does belie slightly more average interior, but it's a nice hotel in a very quiet area. The staff is friendly and helpful. There was no welcome drink of the usual fruity... More
