My family stay at Thilaka was a great experience. My children enjoyed their stay, pool and food. Thilaka team Frank, Milton and Nalaka did an excellent job in their fields of food and accommodation. Frank organised a van for us for a very reasonable price with good drivers.They also provided facilities and help to prepare (cook) offerings to Sacred places in A'pura. Food was tasty and plenty.

We really enjoyed this family run guesthouse as a family of four. ROOM: Basic. Nothing fancy, however, you could eat your dinner off the floor, the place is that clean. Given we just needed somewhere to sleep, we were fine. Aircon and a fan are in the room, the bathroom/toilet was fine, although open to the outside. You'll need to shut the bathroom door if you don't want the mozzies. The room itself size wise was fine. We were able to stash luggage etc with no issues. DINING: we ate there one night. Although not as cheap as street food (we fed our family of four for around AUD$5 one night!) it is still delightful. The servings are large though, so well worth the money. We had dinner there twice. POOL: Cleaner than what we had experienced in Sri Lanka to that point. It's up above the street level and there is some shade. It's a good size and there is a little "kiddy" pool that is attached: it has some depth to it, but our little one loved that she could practice her "swimming" by herself. There was seating around the pool as well and a shower also. DAYTRIPS: We booked a safari through the hotel to Willpattu National Park as we didn't want to go to Yala. With two kids, visiting ruins in the heat wasn't going to work either. Best decision ever. While we had to get up early (about 0430-0500 for a 0530 departure), it wasn't an issue. Breakfast was provided and the owner himself drove us out to meet the safari jeep. We hopped in and away we went. The driver we had was amazing and was able to spot much more than what we thought we ever would! While we didn't see a lepoard, we came close to seeing a sloth bear and saw so much other wildlife in the park. Our eagle eyed driver saw things that others had missed (eg a jeep roared on past tree where our driver stopped and pointed out a snake that was making a snack out of a birds eggs in a tree hollow) which was fantastic. We asked about the driver on the way back to the guesthouse (the owner picked us up) and he mentioned that he works with only two drivers, to ensure that guests have a great experience. It was well worth the money we spent on the safari alone!

This family run hotel represents extremely good value for money. Thila and his team do everything they can to make your experience one to be remembered. This hotel is clean and well presented. It boasts a rooftop plunge pool which has a small splash area for children. It has an extensive menu and several dining areas. Wilpatta National Park lies some 35km to the west and safari tours can be arranged through this hotel. More locally there is the temple at Mihintale (17km) and even closer at 5km is the ancient city which has ruins and temples to visit. However if you are all “templed out,” just a mile and a half away you can watch the sunset falling over the lake Nuwara Wewa. If not why not just stroll down the lane and take an opportunity to see local monkeys doing what they do best. An essential for westerners - beer is available and wine on request.

Thilaka City Hotel is a wonderful example of the ideal hotel from its pristine AC rooms, to the rooftop swimming pool over looking the amenities nearby; a desirable quality for tourists. Their friendly and engaging staff made our stay an even more enjoyable experience that definitely has us wishing to return in the near future.
