This is purely budget accommodation who can not pay more. Rooms are neat and clean. The Hotel is little away from the main attractions. You need to have vehicle to reach this hotel. Avoid taking food in this hotel.Rates are very high .Very limited menu breakfast(complimentary)is served. Restaurant located on the roof and from here you can have good view of the nature.
Main disadvantage at this hotel is ,food available at the restaurant is very costly and no restaurants are available nearby. Ensure that you finish your dinner at the end of the day before reaching the hotel.

We stayed two nights at the Majestic. It is not a convenient location which makes it all the more tempting to eat in the hotel but on our stay the kitchen was overworked and it took a long time to get the food. The management explained it was because of the holidays. I hope so because if it is like this all year it wont work but they do try very hard to please. They need to simplify the menu and do a limited umber of dishes they can do well, We wanted Sri Lankan breakfast but they said they didnt have time to prepare the first day but made sure we got it the second day. Meals on the top floor with good views

My husband and I are in our 30s and really enjoyed our stay at The Majestic Tourist Hotel. The hotel is situated a 5-10 minute tuk tuk ride from the town centre. The rooms were simple but clean and the hosts went out of their way to make our stay comfortable - recommending us good restaurants and even the local massage place that they themselves use and organising a driver from Colombo. We ate dinner once at the hotel and the dinner was very tasty and good. I would recommend this place to anyone wanting to have home cooked meals and a true Sri Lankan experience. Great price and a great stay.

The location is out of the way unless you take a tuk tuk. Food is expensive and not nice. Same breakfast every day.

Everything comes with money. We were told we had to pay more for their tour because they would provide us a new car. The car seemed like it was going to be scrapped anytime. The driver was hesitant to find a tourist who hadn't come back to the car after a long time.

Rooms are spacious and clean and the view from the terrace restaurant are awesome! "G" and his parents were very helpful and welcoming. We can recommend the Elephant orphanage tour and G went beyond what he needed to do in order to make sure we had a very special day. While we were stressing out about a flight change his father drove us to the city centre to save us time and hassle with a tuk tuk, this left a very pleasant taste in our mouths and given the opportunity we would happily stay here again. I saw another review suggesting a 4km walk in to town... what a load, it is 1.5-2km absolute maximum and its location lends it to amazing views and a nice walk in to town so definitely don't worry about that.
