This hotel is bit far from the main town. But this is worth staying if you want to live amidst the nature. If you are a nature lover then this hotel is well recommended for you. The rooms are spacious and clean. The staff is very friendly. And the restaurant serves delicious breakfast which is a definite plus point

Stayed there last week. The food was above average and the setting of the restaurant was good. However, the room was very tired and needed a lot of renovation. In particular, the toilet was old and the toilet seat had a lot of strain.

All the installations were really old and not clean at all. Not recommended. Additionally, is not in the town so is the one option for you to have dinner, etc. if you have no way to go to the town. WiFi is just avilailable in the lobby, not in the rooms.

We started off our trip with our 1st night at this hotel and I surely lived it. The staff is very warm and welcomed us well, they served tea as I waited for my hubby to submit his passport details. The dinner was good and so was the breakfast. The room was fairly spacious and good enough for 2 of... More

We stayed here overnight during a recent trip to Sri Lanka. The hotel is slightly away from the city centre. It is in a picturesque location and the ambience in the lounge and restaurant is fine. There is no wifi in the rooms. Wifi is only available in the lounge and restaurants. A number of comfortable seats are placed around... More

15 people we booked seven rooms. We stayed for two days. service is not good. Mattress provided are not comfortable. Not much worth for money. Even nobody is taking care to transfer our luggage to room.
