We (my family and two friends from USA) just returned from a one-night stay at this hotel. This hotel is located at a nice location overlooking the lake. The check-in went smoothly, but then the troubles began. The room was really nice and spacious with a huge bathroom. However, the TV did not work. Upon notifying the management, they informed...

Very very disappointed. Fails good management. But the staff is very friendly and helpfull. From the reservation till our end of our journey it was so reckless. At the reservation, made several calls and emails to confirm our reservation. Finally done. Because of the delay at the reservation, got a email from hotel deer park saying “Well noted this mail....

What a place! We arrived as the sunset and were treated to a spectacular view across the lawn with the lake in the background. Welcome drinks and face cloth on arrival. Highly attentive and friendly staff. Lovely pool and the cottages were a real treat! We all wished we had stayed longer. The communal areas are beautiful. The architecture and... More

The hotel had great service, nice view, and nice rooms, but the food for all 3 meals and drivers meals were terrible. Good to go for a short stay, and if eating outside at a great nearby place such as Jaga Foods.

This hotel has a distinct beauty, but it fails good management. The staff is very friendly and helpfull, but some things didn't go well (e.g. ordering dinner). The management doesn't come with flexible solutions. The only item that comes quickly is the bill. The rooms are really nice. The location in a park like environment is absolutely gorgeous. But on...

This is really a great place to be with a breath taking lake view. We were well hosted by the friendly staff and received excellent service. Worth mentioning is the swimming pool situated in a well-maintained garden. Only one point of constructive feedback regarding the restaurant. The buffet is great but it is some times hard to eat a la... More

Enjoyed a great couple of days here in July. Location is good for Polonnaruwa, only 25 minutes drive. We had a chalet for 2 with a huge firm bed, massive bath, shower, bathroom area which had recently been done up to a high standard. We were also well away from the pool - not that the pool area was noisy.... More
