Possibly the best hotel we have ever stayed in. Rooms large with great views over lake and hills. Quality of staff is superb with nothing too much trouble for them. Food fabulous. Breakfast menu has everything from fruit selecton to bread pastries and pancakes as well as a cooked course. For dinner we recommend the Sri Lankan options which are... More

We spent two amazing nights here and wished we had longer! The surroundings are so beautiful and it's so private. While you enjoy authentic Sri Lankan food you can see Sigiriya Rock from the restaurant and wild monkeys playing happily in the hotel grounds. They give you free bikes to cycle around the hotel and the pool is devine, we... More

Our suite was huge with a fine view to the lake at the back from the terrace which also had an outdoor bed for total laziness, as well as a... More

This property is nice. Has spacious rooms and a great view of the Rock. We were well looked after by good staff and enjoyed an upgrade. The plunge pools in the rooms are a great relief after a hot day of siteseeing.

We stayed at four different hotels during a two week holiday in Sri Lanka and this one was the worst so far! Although the architecture is quite spectacular and the surrounding area is of outstanding beauty, the actual management of the hotel has been left in the hands of an incompetent and absent manager who lives in Colombo and the...
