The rooms, bunglow and golf course was really nice. The Bunglow has a very good view and access to golf course. The food was average. The only problem we had (and this was a very big problem) our driver was given accommodation in a very far away place, and his room has not had a mosquito net and the window was jammed and could not be closed so he had been getting mosquito bites all night. Also he had been given only rice, dhal curry and chille paste for dinner which is appalling, and they had forgotten to give him breakfast till we complained about it. We sent a complaint email to the management about this situation, and they did not even reply to that email.

The resort is beautiful and well maintained. The dining manager, Sampath Kosgolle, is absolutely wonderful and a key asset to this place. The hotel manager, (once we were able to get past the incompetent, untruthful man at the check in desk)was more than accommodating and saved what had the potential to be a disastrous stay.
Mr. on the other hand, should find another profession. He blatantly lied about the ability to transport us from our cottage to the main area ( pool, dining hall, etc.) and on our first day we waited over an hour because as he curtly explained the van was busy. We would have walked despite it being over a kilometer had we not had a 22 month old with us. Dinner was also a problem. Even though we paid for a modified American plan in advance, he explained that we could not order from the menu as tonight was a small "buffet" so even though almost all dishes were spicy and/or fish,which my daughter is allergic to,her and the baby would have to make do or order from the menu and pay. Luckily, Mr.Sampath stepped in and offered a reasonable compromise.
This hotel is under new management and the new manager tried his best once he was apprised of the situation. If he wants the hotel to succeed, the company should,at the very least, train some employees better or let them go for everyone's sake!

Victoria Golf Club & Resort is a lovely place to unwind, even if you don't play golf! The golf course itself is a challenge, especially at this time of year because the area has received such little rainfall, but a few days of rain will spruce up the colour and the greenery. The wramth and friendlisness of the staff at the golf club will make you smile the duration of your day. All you have to do is hit the ball straight! Even if you don't the caddies and ball spotters will find your ball and keep you smiling!

Victorial golf and country resort is primarily a golf club. The resort alongside brought a pleasant surprise to us.
The scenery from the rooms are breathtaking. They have a well maintained grass tennis court - one from the handful of grass courts in Sri Lanka!
Rooms were spacious and amenities were plentiful.
What shined the most was there delicious set of meals. The restaurant made authentic plates just as the recipe says!
As a negative, the pool was clean but there is no heaters; made us to shiver! There is no baby pool as well!
Staff was super friendly..
A must visit place...

Great course with ups and downs and narrow fairways.
First time to play with a Caddie which was a great experience Also hired a ball spotter who prevents you to search to deep in the jungle, where you might find unwanted new animal friends. Great experience overall and good exercise as well

Course offers Amazing scenery - and wildlife to be spotted too, condition not bad tho some greens were undergoing work. A challenging course combining distance and some narrow fairways. Reasonable price. Excellent caddies (mine offered some very helpful hints and an Eagle ensued!).
