I was brought here by a TukTuk (they seemed to have an arrangement, and when i asked the TukTuk to take me elsewhere, he refused). It was about a week outside the pilgrimage season, so there really wasn't many people around. Probably because it was off-season, please haggle the price of the rooms! I came as a solo traveller and... More

Yes, there are bed bugs and no, the room wasn't very nice. But, can't say there was much expectation, so there wasn't much disappointment. This is just a place to stay for a few hours before the Adam's Peak hike, and it does its job. The staff was quite nice and lent us a power converter.

I came to the Inn for just a few hours so I could rest before I hiked up Adam's Peak. The place is not clean, horrible bugs everywhere, food isn't good and rooms arnt welcoming either. I didn't get a good sleep before going on the big hike and I do not recommend coming ever again!!!

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
