We arrived at the Wathsala Inn at 6pm, having travelled all day to get there. The staff were very welcoming although something that would become apparent during our one-night stay was kicked off when one went off to search for our booking details, failed, went AWOL, then another took over at random. This oddity would occur throughout our stay: the... More

We booked this hotel for one night for our trip to Adam´s Peak. We were there with another couple and had two separate rooms. Both of them were downstairs, which means in the level under the lobby. After reading several other opinions on Tripadvisor, we think that there are way better rooms upstairs. We dont know. Our best part of... More

Stayed here just for 1 night en-route to Adam's Peak. If you are able to find your route to Dalhousie, then Wathsala Inn is not difficult to find - on the left just as you enter Dalhousie. Welcome was pleasant and we were offerred nice welcome drink. We had Sri Lankan dinner which was good and reasonable and the breakfast... More

Wathsala is a great hotel with a perfect view on the Adam's Peak. Nice rooms and great staff. The food is also very good. To bad we stayed there for one 'night'. We climbed the Adam's Peak in that night.

Beds were damp (seems to be the case in all hotels) but clean, lovely duvet and super comfy though. Hotel staff are really friendly and you can get a guide for adams peek for 2500. If you go out of season I recommend a guide if not don't bother with a guide. It is obvious enough. Food is pricey but... More

By no means expect any sort of luxury here - it's practical for the climb, food is reasonable and they serve you a pot of tea on arrival and when you are done with the climb. Bedsheets were damp but the whole place is damp wit but being so high up and the fact it rained the whole time we... More

My boyfriend and I stayed here before climbing Adam's Peak in December 2012. We had an okay room with a nice balcony overlooking the forest at the back. The place is pretty basic, but it's a good base when you're going to climb AP as you can walk all the way from the hotel to the top.

I came here to climb Adam's Peak. I arrived in the late afternoon with the driver that I had hired, and was given a welcome drink. The room was nice, fleece blanket on the bed as it gets a little cooler than rest of Sri Lanka at night. I had grilled chicken for dinner with boiled veg - I had... More

We were recommended this hotel for one night, to enable my husband climb Adam's Peak and we were not disappointed. We had an excellent welcome and shown straight to our room. The room could have been cleaner but was more than adequate. The view from the balcony was wonderful. We had a meal in the evening and it was the... More
