Its a motel so they don't come in to your room, untill you asked them.Staff was very friendly. We asked for extra bed linnen and towels and it was no problem! people in the neighbourhood are very friendly, gave us lots of fruits and let us swim in the river on their property.

This hotel has so much potential, but is let down by the unfriendly staff and lack of detail in the rooms. The bathroom was very poor with a broken shower (which is needed after a hike through the Sinharaja Rain Forest). Luckily the food was good - you have to eat there because we were told there are no restaurants... More

We stayed two nights. Initially, we were allocated a room in a side annex. It was very basic and had beds made from concrete (That was a new experience!). The bathroom wall was the highway for an endless stream of ants ... from floor to ceiling. We moved to the main building for our second night. The rooms are on... More

Pretty good for a small village motel, you can't compare it to a big city chain hotel. We were here for a visit to Sinharaja and tried to get Martin's Lodge and were told it was full (later found out this was wrong). I think for Sinharaja you need a two centre stay. Spend one night (if possible) at Martin's... More

Rooms: The rooms were very clean and simple, but had everything I needed. The view was AMAZING! Service: Attentive and kind. Food: Um! Um! Good! I definitely recommend the curry, the rice, the string hoppers. Price: An excellent value.

In this review of The Rock View Motel I will try to give the reader a balanced view and the kind of information that will lead to an informed decision. LOCATION 9 out of 10 The view from all rooms at the Rock View is spectacular. The vista over tea plantations and a vivid green valley to the mountains beyond... More

This motel is very basic. The views from the room balconies are wonderful but the room itself was quite scruffy. One of the walls (facing the common areas) did not go up all the way to the ceiling, so the room was very noisy while there were people still eating and hanging out downstairs. It also did not block out... More

Unfortunately there aren’t really any choices when it comes to staying in this area otherwise I would suggest avoiding this hotel. It is basic, which is fine, but the problem is that it desperately needs painting inside and without it it goes from basic to scruffy! The dining room is large and characterless but the food was good and the... More

This place was brilliant value for money. The rooms were basic with no tea or coffee making facilities in the room, however the staff were happy to make either at a nominal charge. Rooms were clean, tidy and the beds comfortable. It is set in amongst a massive garden full of tea bushes. When we sat on our balcony looking... More

Little nice motel, comfortable beds, breathtaking view from the terrace to the valley with tea plantations. Perfect to stay overnight. We asked for the blankets and extra sheets just because I needed to have something heavier to cover my body, and it turned out that they did not have blankets at all. They gave us couple of extra sheets instead... More
