This area is not colombo or kandy. So if you compare, you will be disappointed. The staff are very friendly and will try to do everything to please you, with their limitations in comprehending English. The resto looks fine, however, I ordered spicy fish curry with white rice and got spicy chicken curry with fried rice. They took it back... More

Stayed one night during a business trip. Don't misled by the name. The bridge they referring must be the " kallady bridge" a colonial land mark in Bati. But you don't get a view of the bridge from anywhere . Rooms are not upto the standard seen in the photos. Staff trying there best. Restaurant is crowded with local people... More

The rooms we have does not look so good ( compare to the pictures). The bed linen were very old ( with stains even if they were clean). The shower did not work properly. So we think it is not the good price . We do not recommend the restaurant.

I led a team of 16 international high school students for Habitat for Humanity in July 2014, and were put up at Hotel Bridge View. After reading multiple negative reviews of this hotel, I was a little worried to be honest. However, after spending 7 nights I would recommend Hotel Bridge View. Strengths: First, the rooms were clean, AC worked,... More

I stayed 2 nights (5&6th March) with 2 colleagues of mine. On the first night, a young waiter took our order and he wrote down everything on his palm. When asked how long would it take to serve food, he said 45 minutes. His English wasn't very good and we weren't sure sure he understood what we ordered. We ordered... More

When two of my friends and I came in here to eat, we waited at least 5 minutes for someone to come to or table. They brought the wrong beer and then the beer glasses smelled rotten, like wet dog. We ordered a few dishes and they were expensive and very small. One of the dishes was practically raw. Who... More

A very disappointed place, moreover recommended by lonely planet guide. We stayed there one night, unfortunately..the morning during breakfast I told to the owner that the omelettes were too spicy (hot) for us (plenty of strong hot pepper) and he answered: "remove it and eat it"!! Even if I'm an open person and I could think to make it, It... More

The name of the hotel totally misleads the guest. I visited this place with the Director general og NGO affairs of Bangladesh in June 2007. The place was too far from the road. The food was cooked by amateur cooks & was too oily. The DG /NGO of Bangladesh was on an official visit & was very unhappy as the... More

A disappointing place, grounds needed a lot of attention. No matter we stood there was no view,of any bridge. Meals were average, rooms were tiny and in need of a good spruce up, and bathroom needed a thorough clean. We only stayed there one night so we didn't see anything in the area, A/C didn't work, how ever the fan... More

Thank you for your review, the management appreciate the feedback & regret that your stay was not a happy one. The staff are a little shy with their English but it is an area that the management are focusing on and for them practice makes perfect. More

The Hotel Bridge View has a surprising amount of amenities for being in a small provincial town of Sri Lanka. The rooms were air-conditioned and clean and comfortable. All the staff went out of their way to ensure that guests' needs were well-served. They were quick to respond to any requests. The food was tasty and very cheap. The hotel... More
