Stayed here in early 2014 for one night. The hotel itself is in a rather random location, but on the Mahaweli River. It is surrounded by small houses on the other sides and woodlands. Staff are courteous and helpful. The receptionists are always with big smiles on their faces, which is wonderful. The rooms are great and I cannot find... More

The hotel is well done, spacious rooms, warm and bustling lobby, well maintained plants, ambient lighting, wonderful pool adjoining the dining area. Had buffets for breakfast and lunch - large spread with a lot of variety. The balcony in the rooms are small are can't be used for lounging but give the hotel a unique look. The bed was quite...

You might think the hotel needs a renovation but its all about the atmosphere. It might bring you back in time. The hotel is clean and maintained. Its a lovely place for a gateway, the food is very tasty, the staff and service are great.

Me and my family stayed here for two nights. When I called the hotel to confirm my reservation, the lady who was attending to my request had gone on leave without replying to my e-mail. Buddhini who took my call was very prompt and sorted out my reservation then and there. The room was good and spacious and nicely appointed.... More

On arrival, the hotel looks promising, with a nicely laid out reception area, lovely pool area and nice bar over looking the gardens. But.... although spacious, the room was in need of updating/renovation, as were all the others we saw. The bathroom was awful, with black mould all over the shower area. The food in the restaurant was below the... More

Although rated 5 star, the level of hospitality is not even upto 3 star. The staff members seem to be interested in serving only the foreign guests whereas the local guests are largely ignored. I waited for almost 40 minutes to place an order for an evening snack and it took another 30 minutes or more for those simple dishes... More

This hotel has grown from a 4 bed guest house , ultimately ending up as a 100+ room luxury hotel so someone is doing something right. The only legacy of its more humble beginnings is the fact that the lifts are 60 metres from the lobby down 2 corridors. The Lobby ;/ lounge is stylishly furnished with a clever use... More
