We choose this hotel because it had a very big pretty yard, cheapest on booking.com, and free breakfast. The staff is extremely friendly and have the nicest smiles. The lunch and dinner you can have at the cafe in the entrance. It is very tasty and cheap. The free breakfast is huge. We stayed two nights and had roti, string hopers, butter/jam/bread, sandwiches, egg hopers, curry for string hopers. The hotel have a huge parking. We stayed in the cheapest room, it was no A/C, no hot water, but for this price one doesn't expect that. The room was clean. Only two things we didn't like: 1) the show drain had some hair not cleaned, and the bed cover was pretty old (some holes, not sure if it can be cleaned completely). We saw a room for 3500 Rs, and it looked fantastic.

The staff at this hotel are the rudest people we've met in Sri Lanka, I would avoid this place like the plague. I can't believe the positive reviews on Trip Advisor are genuine, it certainly wasn't our experience. For breakfast we tried to order String Hoppers (traditional Sri Lankan dish) from the menu only to be told that they would only provide Western breakfasts. Why put other options on the menu then? Not all the listed items came with the breakfast. Asking why, they first claimed some were options despite it very clearly stating on the menu that all were included. They only provide thick condensed milk for tea, so that was undrinkable. When we complained about the above, we were told it was all our fault. Apparently we should have ordered breakfast the night before, then they could have sourced all the ingredients and wouldn't have needed to lie to us about some items being options. I pointed out that I've never had to order breakfast the night before in any other hotel ever. The waiter then claimed he asked us if we wanted breakfast when we checked in. This was an outrageous lie. When we denied every having this conversation, he called us the liars. We asked for a very modest 50rs discount on the breakfast for the missing items but he refused sticking to his new position of 'its all your fault' refusing to acknowledge any wrongdoing. Another tip if you do still decide to stay and eat here: eat quickly or cover every inch of your skin. There are literally clouds of mosquitoes in the restaurant. The room was big and clean but stuffed with mothballs. Now all my clothes smell like mothballs. Great.

I am currently half way through a stay here and feel so angry that I have to write a review of this place before I leave so that no one else makes the mistake of booking. I am a 26 year old female who has been travelling on a budget for 4 months and I have never been treated so rudely by a member of male staff as I was at breakfast today. There is a menu which displays various breakfast options but none are available except a western breakfast (so don't expect to be enjoying any Sri Lankan hoppers). The western breakfast clearly states that toast/butter/jam/omelette/sausages are included with tea/coffee or fresh juice and fruit. When our omelette arrived without sausages we politely asked if sausages were coming. We were told that no they weren't. The first excuse was that my reading skills were poor and that the menu meant omelette or sausages (even though I am English and a veterinary surgeon I am clearly not educated enough to read the English Language according to the waiter). After I pointed out that I understood the menu he tried to tell me it was my fault because he asked what we wanted for breakfast yesterday. This was simply a lie, no discussion was had about breakfast, he then childishly kept trying to get the last word and laughed in our faces. All I asked was that we either got what we paid for or they reduced the price of the breakfast by a fraction. This probably all sounds very petty but the aggression and rudeness shown by this member of staff was enough to make me shake. I would not recommend staying here if you are not good at confrontation. Please don't give these people your money, I know the reviews are generally good but I genuinely feel that the staff could be threatening if I were a solo traveller. (Also the room smells terribly of moth balls- we found 20 in our room)!

For the amount we paid for this hotel we were very pleasantly surprised! The staff were spectacularly helpful in every way and spoke good English. They offered laundry services, free breakfast (omelette, toast and fruit) and arranged tuk tuks and tours for us. Our room was large with a balcony and was cleaned during our 3 night stay. The only downside would be the weak water pressure in the shower, it's location (slightly out of town ~200/300 Rs tuk tuk ride) and the temperature of the room (too hot). Also, there was no mosquito net but luckily we brought our own. Overall a great place to stay, especially regarding the price. We would definitely stay here again if we returned to the city.

Savonrich has very modern, well appointed clean rooms. The facilities are good and the staff very pleasant. The only drawback is that it is located on the outskirts of town but this does mean that we had a quite and peaceful stay. It is of very high standard for the price range and I would definitely return.
