Food was good, drinks expensive and rooms very basic (no mosquito net). But what was really bad : the owner arranged with his friend for a safari ride from 6 am to 12 with drop off at the Southgate. What happened was that they just took the shortest way and dropped us at 9am. We saw some deer and that... More

A good working fan but no hot water. For the price we payed we expected at least a warm shower. The room is clean but... More

The chef ( Kingsly) was all out to serve us....no matter of time..... It was a comfortable & happy stay. It was a family stay in A/C rooms in December 2013. Very convenient location on the main road and easy access to the Willpattu park.
