The whole place is a clean as a whistle. Its almost as if it was repainted last week. (This is V rare at this price point in SL ) Kumara was a chef in Japan for 15 years and his standard of cooking, cleanliness and attitude toward his guests is clearly what is expected in that exacting country. I would... More

From the moment we checked in to the moment we left, we had an amazing time here. The owner Mr Kumara and his staff were so welcoming and friendly. The location is slightly away from the main resorts (around 15 minutes walk), which means it is lovely and quiet, but still easy enough to reach the main sights. Our rooms... More

A delightful place. Delicious food served at a table right next to the river was a highlight of our holiday. Quality accommodation with high standards of service. It was lovely to relax in the garden and watch the riverside life, and wandering around the local village was fascinating. A perfect place to relax.

This is a lovely property right on the river. We stayed 3 nights and our room was large and immaculately clean, serviced everyday (a real treat) with a great ensuite bathroom. The fridge and television were great bonuses that we really enjoyed and hadn't really expected given the reasonable room rate. Kumara is a wonderful host, lots of help and... More

We have been coming to Sri Lanka since November 2007 and first stayed at the River Side Inn Fuji in May 08 and have returned on 5 more occasions, November 13 being the latest. The Fuji is well known locally as the Japanese house and Sanjaya, your congenial host, spent some 16 years as a chef in Japan before returning... More

I had never stayed in small boutique hotel previously, but this one would have to be right up there. The owner/manager and his one side-kick do everything. The cleanliness of this hotel would leave even a hospital to shame. The food was amazing and I was surprised to find that we were consulted about our preferences for food. The owner... More

From the moment we arrived we were welcomed by owner / manager cool juice, cool face towels. Our rooms were spacious, fastidiously clean, well appointed and the bed had fresh flowers laid out on the cover. Our view was the river, only a short walk away, with table and chairs down beside it. I have left the meals to last.... More
