We stayed in this hotel for one night before moving on to the southern coast. The room we stayed in was spacious, very modern and clean. No comments there. The lobby looks rather outdated but does have free wifi. The restaurant and bar of this hotel, however, are terrible. Not necessarily in terms of the food and service (had better... More

Stayed for 1 night after visiting Uda Walawe National Park. The steepm steps leading to the reception as previous reviews mention will be an issue for people with mobility issues. The hotel was quite of guests when we stayed. The restaurant is huge and only 2 tables were set for dinner, though only my wife and I dined! The food... More

Stayed here on 14th December for one night on full board basis. The room and bathroom were very clean and of a good size. The hotel was quiet except for wedding ceremonies which seem to be a main part of their business. Food was adequate, if unexciting, but this is not an expensive hotel. The dining room is huge and...

Large room and toilet, clean linen, view over a lake, in situ spa, ample parking, lots of steep steps to climb to get to the reception (!) and basic food would sum up our experience. To be fair, the hotel is under renovation and the usual entrance is closed. There was a faulty plug point in the room which sparked,... More

First of all don’t forget this is a 2 star hotel and I think some of the present reviews forget that. Location is actually quite good and perfect for a morning or afternoon jeep tour in Uda Walawe National Park … plenty of wild elephants, eagles, crocodiles, jackals and buffalos … don't miss the safari if you can. There was... More

The lake side location of this hotel is great. However, the hotel lobby is currently under renovation, and therefore the windows and curtains are constantly closed, turning the main lobby and restaurant area into a sauna. However, the newly renovated rooms are very good, and the bathrooms are top notch. The food is not really very great, basic buffet dinner... More

An old hotel now undergoing a large extension & the rooms have yet to be done. Food was served in a huge ballroom style restaurant, a long way from the kitchens so arrived cool. Quality of food not brilliant e.g Beef Stroganoff was made with chopped smoked sausage which was almost inedible!

We spent 1 week doing an Ayurveda treatment at Centauria lake resort. We were welcomed warmly and all the staff was very considerate, friendly and helpful. The room was nice with a balcony overseeing the the beautiful lake. The food was excellent. We got a diet according to Ayurveda principles comprising authentic Sri Lankan food. The treatments were excellent and... More
