We only stayed in this guesthouse one night on our way from Ella to Galle. It had ensuite bathroom with hot shower. The room was air conditioned and had a ceiling fan. Outside the room you could sit on the balcony and see the lake. The waiter even bought us a cold beer to the balcony to drink. He was... More

It seems this hotel, which is not featured on Booking or Agoda aspires for more than it is: There is a gate guard and uniformed workers, but shower is not very clean and they didn't turn on a/c in the restaurant. We stayed in the 'old' building in a triple room for 50$. WiFi is in the 'new' building only.... More

This hotel is a great place to stay when visiting Yala National Park. It has older style but very clean rooms with fly screens and mosquito nets. They provided a packed breakfast for our trip to Yala. Limited Wifi in rooms but worked well in the dining and bar area.

Budget clean hotel with A/C and hot water. We stayed 1 night before our safari to Yala the following morning. Rooms were basic and clean but fine for what we needed. As previously commented the pillows are rock hard!! The internet only works in the reception and dinning area. We payed 6000 for 1 night for a twin room and... More

We stayed in Room 2, which is one of Lake Side's 'delux' rooms. The room itself was fantastic; spacious living area and a huge bathroom. Intermittent hot water but that's not really a problem as it is so hot here. The room had very powerful aircon and a fan. There is a TV but no English channels, only local channels.... More

Overnight stop to go to Yala. We liked the pool. In the evening there were some weird black insects so we could not sit outside though we really wanted. Room was clean only minus was veryvery hard pillows like sleeping on a rock. Too expensive for that quality.

This is a very good hotel if you are running with a low budget. It has a mini size swimming pool and the food in here is delicious. The first three rooms which gives the nice view of thissa lake are the best for me.

Lake Side is one of the better places in Tissa if you want to spend couple of days. There rooms are not luxury but I would say good for the value & clean. Air conditioned & non air conditioned rooms are available for your choice. Upper floor rooms are better as you get a good view of Tissa lake. Room... More
