Stayed for five nights, thought it was a bit gloomy at first with the brown and cream paintwork, but we soon warmed to the place. The room was clean, spacious, the bath was a bit grotty but the shower was great , lots of hot water. The staff were brilliant, ever helpful but not in your face all the time. Food was good, decent buffet breakfast.
Located near the railway station, which is handy as Bandarawela is a noisy, fumy town and a good base to travel out from. The train journey to Badulla is brilliant, fantastic scenery and the return trip can be done in an afternoon.
All in all a great place to stay, but three nights would have been enough
