Nice hotel with a large natural garden (interesting flowers and also plenty of small animals you can watch from your balcony). The big pool is really enjoyable after the trips nearby to Dambulla/Sigiriya/Anuradhapura. Staff is very friendly and the rooms are clean and well-equipped, food is varied and tasty so I definitely recommend it for a short/long stay.

Rooms are quite big and clean. The hotel garden is really nice. The pool is big and has also a deeper end (you can dive in it) The only downside is that there are rooms that are facing the road, during the day you can hear some traffic, but during the night it's quiet.

The place was awesome. This place is a stay with nature. It is a good place to relax and rest before and after a hectic climb up and down Sigiriya. The food was okay. The location was excellent. The only complaint is the pool. It gave us hundreds of nicks and cuts. I like that place a lot. Very Good!

There is no doubt that a stay here is a stay with nature. As you settle into sleep after escaping the Mosquitos, you are fired to question whether you are sleeping amongst the wild cats..or just late night employees mopping...inside your room. Expect to be pounced on at every meal, mouth full, and asked to pay your bills... Each beverage... More

Spent 2 nights at Pelwehera Village Resort in December 2013. The accommodation is medium standard; rooms and especially bathrooms need some upgrading. For eg in the shower, there is no shelf or space for soaps, you literally need to put those on the floor. Furniture is quite old, there is no safe. There was no hair drier, we asked for... More

In our Sri Lanka Tour itinerary this was the third hotel were we had a short stay. You cant help comparing the facilities and incidentally the previous hotels were we stayed were much superior (for the same price). Even if I dont compare there are some obvious observations, Rooms are window less thus lack freshness, completely glazed front wall takes... More

We have recently stayed 2 nights at Pelwehera. The hotel is located close to the main road but our room was quiet. Lovely gardens. Our room was spacious and clean. Beds were comfortable. Swimming pool was almost by the main road but it was clean and big. Breakfast included in the rate was a simple set menu. Cordial juice, bread... More

We spent our 1st 3 nights here after a long flight. The hotel is pleasant enough, on a main road, but fairly quiet. Staff very friendly, rooms pleasant. Hotel was very quiet and the food was generally pretty bland. No complaints.

This hotel was booked for us by our guide Sam Lanka tours, a really nice man and recommended. The view of the rice field over the garden is nice, it is close to the main road but it was fine. It is away from town but I don't think there's much to see. If you like an afternoon stroll this... More
