We stayed here for two nights. The cottages are very nice and situated in a beatifull scenery. It's a very quiet place and nature and birdlovers will feel certainly at their ease. The only remark we could have is that the service in the restaurant is not bad but can be worked on.

A authentic place for people loving nature and animals. Everybody is extremely friendly and we had the best breakfast there. The trip with Dhilip was just great and we saw beautiful birds. We recommand this place!

Stayed here for 2 nights in June. A small distance from the village, the place is quiet and peaceful. Rooms were clean, air conditioned (not necessary in my opinion) and quiet. The only odd thing about the room we stayed in was the bath/shower - whilst showering you sort of have to balance on a little peak in the bath.... More

I had a great stay at the Other Corner. The manager went out of his way to help me after my credit card was suddenly cancelled. The naturalist was an entertaining and enthusiastic guide on bird walks and a visit to Minneriya to see the elephants. The wait staff was attentive and the food was delicious. I chose to stay...

The Other Corner in Habarana met all my expectations. For nature lovers it is perfect. The gardens were lovely with many birds and butterflies plus a pool to cool down in. The accommodation had everything I needed, comfortable beds, cooling, nice bathroom and a verandah to relax on. The staff were extremely obliging, no request was too much for them.... More

Nice quiet place in the center of the Golden Triangle. The different cultural sites can all be visited in a day trip from this hotel. The hotel also offers free nature tours to view or photograph the birds in the lake area very close to the hotel. Rooms were clean and spacious and air-conditioned.

As a solo female traveller I felt comfortable and safe at The Other Corner - from being received at the station to staying at the room and completing day trips. I was disappointed with the food but spoke with staff who mentioned they were reviewing the menu. My favourite visit was to the monastery at the base of the Ritigala... More

A great place to stay if you are travelling the middle and northern areas of Sri Lanka, The Other Corner provides efficient friendly service with modern amenities and suites for a reasonable price. The food at the restaurant is very tasty and the in-house naturalist is a likeable chap who took us on safari to see elephants albeit at a... More

Read the reviews before I decided heading to 'The Other Corner'. It was nature at its best. I walked through a suspension bridge which was very unique. Then I was welcomed by smiley faces starting from the security guard, the bell boy, manager and waiter. They are very warm and it makes you feel at home. My room was simple,... More
