An excellent standard hotel with good hospitality. The ambiance of this hotel is too good. Service also excellent. Staff were very helpful and friendly. Thinks more a home away from home. Thanks for N2 Travels for given this nice accommodation for us. Highly recommended to travelers who wants to stay budget accommodation.

Very quiet spot. We stayed in ground-floor rooms. Rooms were quite clean, except for a little bit rusty bathroom and a smell from drain - there was no stink trap... Roofed sitting area. We are an only quests, so we had the swimming pool just for us....

Nice and clean pool. A table outside was dirty. The waiter who took our breakfast orders didn't speak English very well and he spoke so quietly that we couldn't hear. The breakfast itself was standard for Srí Lanka. Rooms were quite clean, except for rusty bathroom and, in one room out of three, a smell from drain. Beds were bit... More

We stayed 2 nights here as part of a trip round Sri Lanka on honeymoon. Our driver took us here - we stayed in the new part of the hotel, which was clean and well done out. The hotel was a bit let down though by the pool which was not very clean - we requested the staff to turn... More

We were pleasantly surprised upon arriving, when we were greeted with smiles and glasses of cool tropical juice. Our room was located by the pool and had a nice seating area outside. Very clean and modern with a lovely bath. The staff were eager to please and took good care of two weary travelers. Many thanks on yet another wonderful... More

This is a pretty new establishment, 200 metres down a narrow concrete track off the main road about 5 km from Dambullah. There is a bit of a local feel to it, the staff live next door and it is in farming country. Most of the staff have rudimentary English skills & struggle with any questions. All the rooms have...

I went with high expectations over a long week end. The service is very slow, check in not very efficient. Meals tasty but very repetitive if one stays for more than one day, lunch menu and dinner menu and the buffet fare are identical without variety or imagination, but tasty. Pool is OK. Rooms very Spartan, bathrooms with excellent fittings... More

It is a beautiful property, the room was very clean. Their rice and curry was the best we had in Srilanka. The waiters are really professional dispite of their age, the service is excellent. The owner was very kind with us, she served us the dinner at 9.30PM after the closing of the restaurant.

Stayed here for 4 nights. Really great place! Superfriendly owners, new buildings and rooms, very clean, nice pool. Ideal place to visit things. If you have any requests, they are always open to help you. I had the chance also to see weddings and inauguration of the house. Loved it and would stay here again! If you like a personal,... More

We stayed there july 2013, after 2 nights they sent us the Bill with a more expensive night raté than the one agreed upon. The manager was for the first Time during our stay now here to be found and she was the only one Who talked english. Pompous hôtel.
