“highly recomended”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2012

I've stayed at the hotel on 27 Dec 2012 with my family and friends and must say that the high quality of service, standards, dine and wine experienced made me to write this short review of the hotel. The hotel and their staff were very warm and even helped me to find infant food with in the locality. Offered good food and bakery products. Very impressive large room fully equipped. I would definitely rate this as one of the best 4 star resorts.

Room Tip: Pick the ground floor one if you can't afford to take the stairs.. However all ground floor room...

Nicely planned layout which gives a good view of the lawns from all rooms. Large well appointed rooms with all modern amenities. Bathrooms are also quite large when compared to other hotels we stayed in srilanka. Efficient and friendly staff. Food choice could have been better for pure vegetarians.

Impressive entry with an equally impressive room. Very well appointed and large rooms. The overall service was good, but the restaurant service was quite poor. The gym was in a dilapidated state and not usable.

Room Tip: Not many options for rooms as the all tended to back homes around the hotel.

Welcome drink was good. Rooms were average. Big room big bathroom. No wifi in the room. Flies in the room. They call a bed sheet as blankets!! This is again not a 4 Star hotel. This can pass off as a 3 star hotel. Lot of bugs maybe dur to the season. And towels look dirty. What i mean us the white towels are not white. Food was not great. The rooms stink. And the lobby is very warm as they off all the air conditions. Even the restaurant Is warm. Guess it's the energy saving efforts/ safe the environment effort. Rest was ok.

I have stayed here for over 10 years and it doesn't get old and its always a nice warm place to stay with superb staff and nice food. Rooms are quite large with all necessary facilities. Only issue is that during rainy season you will have to have an umbrella to walk to the restaurant which is in a separate building. Pool is very nice and the rooms are also very clean. Staff is very attentive and helpful here.

This was one of the best hotels during trip round Sri Lanka. The room was very large - with 2 double beds as standard and marble bathroom with great shower. The room was very clean with aircon, TV, kettle, water. The pool and communal areas were nicely decorated. The food at the buffet was relatively good.

Free WiFi only in the lobby, but the lobby did not have A/C during our visit. We could only stand about 20 minutes on the few chairs before becoming drenched in sweat. Speaking of that, the "gymnasium" provided on the second floor does not have any AC or fans. So you would actually be hotter running on the treadmill up there rather than running outdoors.

The rooms are very large and have a nice patio with ONE chair. My room had two lights which were out. The TV and A/C worked well.

The restaurant prefers that guests eat the buffet rather than order specific entrees. We were told it would be 45 minutes to prepare any of the items we were looking at ordering. The buffet was good, but we weren't hungry for all that food.

Pool water was clear. Rooms were quiet. It took quite a while for hot water to run out of the faucets, but when it did it was hot.
