This hotel has so much potential. The setting is very nice with characterful rooms and a big pool. The hotel however lacked any real atmosphere. The gym was massively outdated and needs updating and preferably stuck somewhere with aircon. The pool is great for a post workout cool down however. No WiFi in rooms is a shame. It's nice to...

The location is very convenient. It is just 5 mins drive to Kataragama temple. The staff were very friendly. The guy with a tie in the lobby area is very welcoming and greet all the time. The breakfast was excellent. Rooms are pretty big but the bathrooms are not very clean. They didn't have an exhaust fan. After some time... More

We have businesses in the Katharagam area. We always stay at Mandara Rosen. The rooms are spacious, the pool is inviting, and the buffet always excellent. I enjoy walking each morning at the nearby lake. I highly recommend this hotel.

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 had our lunch at Mandara Rosen. It was awesome. Very tasty food. There were so many varieties of food. Best service. Friendly staff and they are doing their best for customers. In my opinion Compare with other hotels in Katharagama Mandara Rosen got 4 stars out of 5. I thinks it's a best result. ❤️

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.
