Giritale Hotel is a hidden gem in North Central province, [Ancient Lake Built Kingdom of Sri Lanka 1070 AD - 1215 AD]. The lake front hotel is calm and quiet. It is good location for the nature lovers, relaxing. Hotel manager Ganesh and his team is so friendly and offers good hospitality to their guests. You may not be having any better food than Giritale Hotel. Specially the lake fish dish is unique for chef Nandasena. Here is my observation. I walked through the lake front almost whole day on 20th July 2019. The Lake bank was full of plastic refuse and empty liquor bottles. The hotel staff says this is not happening form the locals. Groups of visitors who come for picnics to the lake mostly throw the rubbish at lake front and untidy the lake environment. I took myself 2 or 3 empty beer bottles out of the lake. But it is endless effort there are many more refuse all around. Dumping rubbish in to the lake is biggest problem for the Giritale Lake. It is not only a threat to the Giritale hotel’s future but also will effect all of our health and the environment of the Ancient Lake Built Kingdom of Sri Lanka.

We went for a quick lunch on our visit to Polonnaruwa. Location is iconic, 360 view over the greenery of the lake. We were lucky to see two free roaming elephants too. Food was delicious but took long time to come. Service was friendly and professional. Calm atmosphere.

We were so amazed about your service standard and the rooms which are renovated recently are elegant. We loved the green and relaxing atmosphere, with stunning lake view.  Although the rates were comparingly low during the season food was really good with western and local dishes.(lots of salads) During the period we felt like home. Thank you Team Hotel Giritale.

This is my second visit to this hotel. I have also been to this place in September 2016. This time I visited the hotel with my family. It was a short stay. But we shared loads of beautiful memories. The reception greets you with a welcome drink. I had requested the lake facing rooms. They have extended and renovated their hotel. The rooms are very spacious and clean. The beds are very comfortable. However, they did not have hot water for bath. The view from the balcony is amazing and you can sit all day and view the deers and elephants on the opposite side of the lake. The food is sumptuous, unlimited breakfast and service as well as the staff are excellent. They also have a small spa treatment, you may need to check the timings for the same. It is a great one time experience. They have a big deep swimming pool with an excellent view. Overall, an excellent hotel and I would surely recommend to people who love nature, peace and quite.
