We stayed here for the first two nights of our holiday, and were a little disappointed with the room. Our room was at the front of the hotel and in need of upgrading, however it was a good size room and clean. Breakfast and evening meals were ok. Internet only worked in the main reception/dining are. Nice pool and surrounding... More

Whilst this hotel is clean and comfortable with great rooms, the food was disappointing. Served buffet style, we always found it cold. The bar is lovely but they could have warned us that it was closed on Christmas Day!

At first sight this seems like a peaceful escape from the bustle of town but the reality turns out to be a little different. Few things work very well - the door was hard to close, the only way to get an outlet to charge a camera or iPad was to unplug something else and the bathroom was not very... More

This hotel was lovely. Perhaps the rooms weren't the most up-to-date or free of crawling things, but it's in the middle of the country in Sri Lanka and expected. The spa was beautiful and very affordable. The staff was attentive and gracious. This is a perfect getaway for a night or two while trekking through the sites.

We absolutely loved this hotel. We had a large and nice room with a shower and a jacuzzi. Everthing was clean and the beds are great. The food here is amazing and you have a lot of choice. One evening they even grilled an entire fish. The staff greets you with smiles and is interested in their guests. There is... More

Only stayed overnight as part of a tour but what a find! The hotel is secluded and consequently quiet. The rooms are spacious and spotlessly clean as is the equally large en-suite bathroom. The food on offer is buffet style at meal times but of a high standard. Unfortunately, breakfast was not as successful as the meal was tepid. Having... More

We stayed here for 3 nights as the first stop on our tour. Had some reservations from previous TA reviews bu have to say we could not have faulted the room, food, service and staff attitude. This was the only hotel which asked us to complete 2 customer satisfaction forms. Clearly they are trying to learn from feedback. Two niggles,... More

We had no real complaints but felt there were some contradictions. The hotel looks spectacular at first sight and has very well kept and well organised grounds leading past a jokey cricket pitch to the river but......... # the only communal area is in an impersonal reception space # the restaurant looks better than it performs # the rooms (...

An excellent Hotel build on 25+ acres of land an absolute piece of paradise. The staff are so friendly & helpful. Highly recommend if travelling to see the Rock temple as the is less than a kilometre away.

In a nice garden several bunglows with four rooms each form this hotel. Near the reception hall one finds a nice looking pool. The property could make up for a nice hotel... In reality we found ourselfs beeing put into a dirty room, full of ants, spiders and cockroaches with dirty linen and windows so dirty that closing the curtain... More
