The first thing we realised was that it was about 3/4 hours walk into town around Lake Gregory, although there were tuk tuks. But what reallly made it bad... More

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
