Dropped in for lunch while on a business visit. They were kind enough to get the order over the phone and kept the food ready on arrival. That was a great service as we were on a tight schedule on our way to Ampara through Badulla. Fairly a good bar with most preferred brands. Accommodation too available and must visit... More

We were there to have lunch and was well looked after. Was able to see around and experience the beauty of this beautiful hotel. Tasty lunch and wonderful desserts as compliments from our cousin at the front desk. I am glad I finally had the chance to make it to Bandarawela Hotel, after visiting Diyathalawa/Bandarawea for so many years.

Visited this hotel on the 22nd April 2016, and checked in for Dinner and checked out after lunch the next day. Room was clean and so was the toilet but nothing luxury.

This is indeed an old and beautiful hotel, with some rooms adorned with brass beds and bathtubs in the bathrooms. Maybe a little too close to the town centre ( you could hear the traffic whistles of the police) but you would be hardly disturbed in the room. The sore point is the food.Even the super friendly staff cannot compensate... More

A nice hotel for a short stay. The food and breakfast was ok. The atmosphere was very nice and the staff was good. The room was feeling a little bit to old fashion. I wasn't to comfortable with the bed and pillows. Tried some massage that was 2/5. Missed some nice outside area just to relax.
