This is the only decent hotel near the ancient Kataragama temple. The staff is quite helpful and the restaurant's female manager is very efficient and helpful. The rooms could be restored in places (like the bathroom floor tiles). The bathroom has black tiles which make it gloomy -- a brighter decorating plan would make the rooms look better. The back...

Spent 2 nights with family in 2 rooms. The usual fresh towels and fruit juices offered upon check in. The hotel is quiet and is surrounded by fenced walls and a forest. Rooms are clean and very spacious with a huge balcony. Beds are big and comfortable. There is a swimming pool but not much space to walk around. Staff... More

We stayed here while we visited Yala National Park (and spotted a leopard!) & enjoyed spacious rooms and a large buffet breakfast. Polite, friendly & accomodating staff. Would recommend to friends visiting the area.

We had a most enjoyable stay at Mandala Rosen. Rooms were large, beautifully appointed and clean. Beds were very comfortable. We opted for half-board because we only needed an overnight stay and had the most delicious dinner and breakfast buffets. Too many dishes to remember but everything I ate tasted so good. Staff were very efficient and helpful. So glad... More

We normally visit Kataragama every year. But this time it was after about 2 years. Every time for the last so many years we always stayed at the Rosen. Without any doubt it's the best hotel in Kataragama. The staff know how to treat people, majority comes to attend to the poojas at the dewala. They advise regarding times and... More

Of the limited number of good hotels in Kataragama this is certainly one of them. Easy to find and in Tissa makes it a good stop when you're off to visit Kataragama. Rooms are spacious. Not the best equipped. Staff is ok but certainly could do better. Understaffed as I saw it. Food is safe and nothing bursting with flavour... More
