“Very Very Good Hospitality , Food ,Accomadation & A Relaxing Place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2014

Me and my family ( 4 people) was there stayed here for 2 days at Cinnamon Lodge, We loved the garden setting, the pool area, the meals, bar and dining area. The waiters ares are so good ,and helpful.My mother in law is a disable person ,who uses the wheel chair,when we struggle at the steps where we are struggling to move forward ,they come together and lift the whole wheel chair and place it where we want to sit.Really commendable.
Food choices are excellent.many many varieties.very good.
Very relaxing environment.
One thing not so good was the driver and guide accommodation - 4 people in a small room is not good enough. We encourage others to comment on driver and guide accommodation at all the places they stay with a view to lifting the standards to a better level.

& The billing unit is not good at all,the person who bills ,doesn't have knowledge to do it.
He made a mistake for 6500 rupees ( 60USD) and he is not willing to accept it also.After he get someone to the place ,admitted his mistake.
And the taxes they are impossing SPA bills are too high(If they add these taxes and gives a one price ,guests will not surprised)

And the water 1 Ltr water bottle they are charging 310 (3 USD) Rupees (Which is outside less than 100 Rupees) which is unfair billing since we booked two rooms for two days which cost about 850 USD, and they are billing additioal 3 bottles of water what we taken.

Check the bills thrice and Stay & Leave HappY !!!!

Room Tip: Take the room infront of the lake if you want a relaxing Take the room infront of the pool if you w...

This was our 1st hotel on our tour of Sri Lanka and didn't disappoint. We liked the privacy of the spacious apartments in lovely grounds with the convenience of a having a restaurant close to hand serving a good selection of good food with plenty of variety. I wish I could get egg hoppers at home. We particularly enjoyed being shown around the fruit, vegetable and spice garden by the head gardener. A lovely hotel in a beautiful setting.

This is my favorite hotel! Location is ideal and unique. it has a huge garden area.
Very spacious rooms. we stayed in a up-stair unit, which comes with a balcony too. Rooms are nicely decorated in a traditional way. but not to worry its not too traditional.
It has a big restaurant area near to the pool. outside is shady and windy.
Food is excellent. and they have a huge buffet.
Service is friendly and helpful. we got lost in the garden and ended up near Chaya hotel. Both are located in the same land. They were really nice and we had tea from the neighbor hotel.
don't forget to climb the tree house.

We arrived at Cinnamon lodge after driving for quite a few hours and we were all absolutely tired. The sight of the hotel cheered us all up. The location is really beautiful and the rooms were lovely. The girls were a bit scared of the monkeys but we didn't have any problem with them whatsoever. The rooms are a good size and the bathroom was quite big.
The dinner and breakfast buffet were amazing with local and international delights ! The girls loved the selection of desserts which were in a separate room ! Big choice.
We only stayed for 1 night but we all wished we could have stayed for more !
Lovely place !!!

Stayed 2 nights. Very nice hotel on plenty of land in good central location, well away from the road. Comfortable and well appointed rooms. Food options were a little limited, as main restaurant was focussed just on buffet for dinner, which we didn't want, and really nowhere else to go in the small town of Habarana. There was a snack type area, plus another small restaurant with limited selection. Would have liked to see more allacarte options available. Breakfast buffet was excellent though, with a number of chefs available to do made to order hot food.

Stayed for two nights, everyone very friendly and welcoming. Bit chaotic when we checked out as unfortunately 3 coaches leaving at the same time, however the hotel accommodated this vast group very well and we noticed the standards were just as good in the restaurant with the large group.
Food all very good-loads to choose from-wish I could have eaten more at dinner and breakfast!!!
loads of different curries or all sorts of other European foods.
Separate air conditioned room for puddings and chocolate!!!!!!!! and they did taste nice, some places look good but all taste the same -these were all delicious
Lovely pool area and at lunch time they would bring you a menu if you didn't go in for lunch-burgers/focaccia bread/club sandwich and loads more choice. The pool is next to a little lake area ,very pretty with the squirrels and monkeys, and there was always a slight breeze.
Very Large and comfortable rooms and bathrooms-yes take a torch, as like a lot of other places pathways a bit dark and uneven.
