Went there with my family and found their concept is ideal but bad maintaining and some unfinished washrooms makes the place unpleasant to live. Floor and some glasses not properly cleaned and wiped, few of the geyser's have not enough power to heat the water. and one thing I hate is the total view of the Gregory Lake covered with... More

We stayed only one night at this place. But, it was a memorable stay. The food was very good. We were lucky to get the upper floor room. The view from the room was simply stunning (no words), a side of the room was facing the tea plantation and a vegetable plantation. The morning view of Gregory's lake and Pidurutalagala... More

The staff was very helpful and provided us with a quality service. Me and my friends enjoyed the stay well. WiFi... More

Positives True to its name, the room was made of 'logs' and so the place had a forest cottage feel to it. The place is very close to the entrance to Lake Gregory park. There was heated mattress (the temparature of which can be adjusted electronically) which added to the coziness, especially on a rainy and cold night. The $40... More
