This place could be a whole lot better & there is so much that it doesn’t have but could. There are two queen size beds (quite comfortable) in my room, which is overkill, but only one chair, no hangers or storage cupboards. There is nowhere to put anything really apart from the floor. The power points are at least a meter off the ground so to charge your phone or camera is with some difficulty as there is no table suitable. The bathroom could be cleaner. There is no where to hang anything apart from one towel rack & there is no shelf to put your toiletries. The TV had poor reception, each channel was fuzz but there was nothing in English anyway. On the positive side the room did have a small outside sitting area with a good view overlooking rice paddies (though a mosquito coil would have been nice to deter them) and the room does have a fan and air con. The staff are friendly and helpful and the breakfasts, I chose Sri Lankan over the continental, was great. Would I stay here again? To be fair there are two answers here, ‘yes’ & ‘no’. Yes, if you only want somewhere to sleep for the night (4 out of 5stars). No, if you are here for more than one night since the room didn’t have what it took to be able to really relax in and be comfortable for more than a night (3 out of 5stars).…
+ goede ligging + ruime gratis parking + vriendelijke ontvangst met een warm handdoekje om je op te frissen en versgeperst vruchtendrankje + ruime, propere kamer met twee grote bedden + op onze vraag, een gratis kookles in hun keuken (aanrader!) + simpel, maar lekker ontbijt - slechte tot geen wifi-verbinding op de kamer, enkel in de lobby - de badkamer kon properder - de ramen hebben een schrobbeurt nodig - een tafeltje en een mogelijkheid om je handdoeken op te hangen ontbraken Dit hotel heeft het potentieel om uit te groeien tot een echt succesverhaal ! De zoon van de eigenaars voldoet aan alle wensen en verlangens. Wij zouden dit hotel zeker aanraden bij onze vrienden en familie !!!
This hotel ticks all the boxes, large, clean rooms with great views. Very friendly helpfull staff and the food is just brilliant. They made us a fish curry and also fried fish and was one of the best meals we had in our whole trip. The service here is something that you would expect from a more expensive hotel. If you are visiting this area of Sri Lanka stay at Rivonway, you will not be disappointed.
Nice view of the paddy field, Can experience nature closely. Comfortable Spacious rooms. Good service, Food was nice. Good location to visit the ancient ruins of Polonnaruwa and Somawathie temple.They arrange Safari tours too.
