The rooms and the pool area are both nice, very well worth the money, but half of their rooms are being renovated and the whole place is a construction site. I asked whether they were renovating when I arrived, and I was told they weren't. I stayed over the weekend and there was

We are a well reputed Hotel situated in Tissamaharama since 2013. As your requested, we gave a discount for the rooms. Only you guys were disappointed about our hotel. Because, we already reached more than 500 good reviews. If something happened earlier, than how should we go for this much. There is no problem with our hotel security. Because, lots of guests came and they never faced such an incident. And you mentioned about some USDs and EURO which we don't no. Yes we a smart,its only for the good services. We don't need to take others money. This is from Hotel for the traverllers. We are giving our best fot the guests. And we are here to share our informations with all of you.

Hi You can book on internet. TripAdvisor does not allow sites to be listed in responses. We used Book....,C...Treehouse is about AUD 42 per night. We didn't stay in the treehouse, we stayed in a ground floor room. Going on what other guests told us the Tree House had some issues with the shower flooding which drove people crazy. River is really just a green stream. Not trying to put you off as we loved the place as per reasons in my review. The family who own and run the place are lovely. Rooms were very clean and had everything you need. Shower tended to be warm rather than hot.

"Never book the treehouse!"
"Go for the first floor rooms, as they have nice high ceilings and balconies to sit."
"Tree house good for couple and family rooms are very big"
"Last floor (3rd.floor) overlooking the garden."
