Our family room was perfect and the bad room is spacious and clean. Take notice of the old school pics of the family who run the place. The... More

Right in town with beautiful views. Rooms are clean, spacious and comfortable and private...didn't realize others were there until we saw them in the restaurant. Our bathroom was the most modern in sri Lanka so far with hot water shower. Poor water pressure but no different from any other place we have stayed. Service excellent and food delicious. Great value... More

Stayed one night in June, the view from the room was really nice, the room itself was ok,although I've seen cleaner and newer sheets before, however, the bathroom was what I was really disappointed about. It was clearly in need of renovation and it was dirty, there's no other way to put it. Breakfast in the morning was lovely and... More

Great place to stay, just past the town on the main street up the hill a little bit with a amazing view, your very close to town but also feels secluded. The staff were a great help with what do in the area & getting to my next destination.

Although we were expecting a basic accommodation we were not pleased to see that the bed sheets were full of rat droppings so was the bathroom, the sheets are so small that you are practically sleep directly on the matrass. The staff was not interested in our complaints. The view from the top terrace is nice, that is about it

This was a nice hotel. Room was basic and bathroom was a bit dated however all clean and useable. The real seller for this hotel was the views from our room, they were amazing. The breakfast was good and the staff were fantastic... especially the manager. He was extremely helpful in helping us with transport the next day. Good location,... More
