Good rooms in a nice garden. The rooms are spacious and clean, and all have a private balcony. The food is good, the pool is great and the people are very friendly. The location is very good for visiting Sigiriya and Dambulla.

Spent our first two nights here on our 10 day tour of Sri Lanka. Although the rooms were fairly basic and the bathrooms dated we found here the best freshly cooked food we experienced out of all the hotels we stayed in during our stay in Sri Lanka, and the friendliest staff. Pool, wifi, clean rooms, only let down by... More

What a Nice Place. Our room was really big, clean and a great place to watch the wild life. We stayed 2 nights as part of a 6 day tour. This was really the first place we experienced Sri Lankan food and we weren't disappointed. They laughed at me as I was saying the food was superb whilst blowing my... More

Great place, amazing staff! Stayed one night, checked in late -- after touring Sigiriya... Loved the bungalows: spacious, clean, hot water, wifi in the "lobby"... and at 7,000 rs a night who could complain? Amazing pool area... so secluded, feels really private. Breakfast is included. Overall -- great place, and would highly recommend! Definitely a hidden "gem" :)

It's a pretty basic place, large rooms, somewhere between luxury and budget, it's a bit of a confused atmosphere. There's a decent sized pool as well. Located quite close to the lake, you can rent a couple of bikes and head out around the area, but make sure you head back before the sunsets as the surrounding areas aren't so... More

Value for money. Nice pool if that's on your list of needs. A bit out of town so will need wheels to get there. The dinner is a banquet for 1000 rupee...ok if you are a big eater...I'm not, and there were no alternate options. I was bitten by an ant...look out for those nasty critters!

We loved our stay here and found the staff, the rooms, the pool and the food fantastic! We stayed for two nights during our travels and it was our favourite hotel on the 16 day trip. A real plus to have such a stunning pool. We had one standard triple room and one single room for our party of four... More

We stayed in one of the standard rooms for three nights, which costs 5000rps, so for Sri Lankan standards still not very cheap. The room was not very clean, especially not the bathroom. The lock on our door was broken, it could take minutes before we could get it open, we asked them to fix this several times but despite... More

Tranquil, calm location (though a little off the beaten track!) with all the bungalows nestled amongst the trees. The food was the highlight of the entire experience - we can really recommend the 'Curry & Rice' which is infact a delicious banquet of meat and vegetable curries with all spice requirements catered for. Flavour was never compromised when we opted... More

Very nice place, very good location (if you like calm place and plant), swimming pool is the best I had seen in Sri Lanka....Very nice to swim at night, you feel like swim in jungle, nature is beautiful, staff are very helpful and friendly...Waiters should improve their English, sometime it can be difficult explain something...
