Stopped here en route to Wilpattu National Park. The buffet was 800 rupees plus your beverage. The choice was from roughly eight options. The restaurant itself features woodwork in its construction. Some of the Sri Lankan flavours did pleasantly linger. Our guide said it is the sort of place best to phone ahead.

We had a warm welcome at the Teal Cottage. You can choose from various cabins. All cabins have AC. We had a delicious diner, breackfast and lunch box for the safari. After the safari we even could use our room to fresh up. Thanks.

A group of 17 of us, who came to see Wilpattu National Park, stayed at Teal Cottage for two nights on 2nd and 3rd February 2019. Double room costs Rs 3500.00 per day inclusive of breakfast. There are number of wings in the hotel. We carried our own bags to our rooms as there are not enough staff. We occupied all eight rooms in the new wing and two others in the other wings. The room was quite large. Bedsheets though clean had not been ironed giving the impression that they are not freshly laid. Towels were clean and hung on clothes stand. The air-conditioned room is basic with only a TV, overhead fan, clothes rack and a bench to keep the bags. There were some ants in the room when we entered, but they swept them out. Ants did not return to the room! Bathroom was clean. Mounted above the shower was a small geyser for a hot water shower. There was a cake of soap and a roll of toilet paper in the bathroom – nothing else. View in front of the new block was nice with a little pond. There is no view to speak of in the older wings. There is no Wifi in the hotel. There were some garlands made of paper flowers hanging from a branch on a tree in the garden. Apparently, they garland foreigners when they visit the hotel! The meals provided were to satisfy sri lankan taste-buds. Lunch – rice and curry with chicken and fish. I did not find the lunch tasty. Dinner – string hoppers with chicken, dhal, polsambol etc was tastier. They had made the food to Sri Lankan taste to our group. They can also provide western cuisine to visitors. There is no bar service only water and soft drinks. The service was mediocre, though friendly, as there are only a few employees to handle all the work. The people who make up the rooms also assist in the kitchen.

Visited for a couple of nights this month. The room is comfortable and the lake view nice. However the food is absolutely dreadful, we had diner and safari packed lunch and both were really bad, the worst food we had in Sri Lanka by a distance. Tasteless, not fresh and very overpriced. Taken with the poor service I would avoid and stay somewhere else.
