I enjoyed my stay. All our group liked the place, because there place is very spacious with a beautiful garden and a big pool. We had a lot of space for our gatherings and joga classes. The rooms are big and clean, only the TV wasn't working. The service was very good. I really recomend this hotel.

We really enjoyed our stay. The rooms are large, clean and simply decorated with wood-colonial forniture. You will find both A/C and fans. The external swimming pool is very nice and well maintained. The service is good and they will try to accomodate all your needs. Food could be better but you will have a large variety to chose from...

We six people stayed here for three days from 16th August 2016 and covered important sights nearby. Location is a bit far from Dambula town. Hotel layout is good but rooms are smelly perhaps due to sever problem on the back side.. This aspect needs to be looked into by Management. There is no tea/coffee arrangements in the rooms. A...

This is the favourite hotel of your private driver. The hotel must pay hefty commissions to the drivers because you would never find, let alone book this hotel yourself and you still end up here. We were offered a room where the toilet leaked, the shower didn't work, the sink smelled really bad, the remote of the A/C didn't work...

14 rooms round a pool, quiet and nice. Rooms nearly without furniture: beds and a table, a small locker. That´s all. Sometimes the air condition stops, sometimes there is no water in the tube. Breakfast: toast, butter, one kind of jam, egg only omelet and fresh pressed juice, personnel overstrained. Wifi free, but often switches off.

Smell of drainage/sewage in room and bathroom. Damaged mosquito net over the bathroom window. Lots of bugs to eat you at night! Swimming pool nice, funny shaped so not great for swimming in but pretty deep at one end. Good food. We didn't have it but the buffet looked like a good chance to try different foods. We ordered a...

Just driving into this property felt good. The landscaping is impeccable. The pool is clean and inviting. I see that others reviewers found it dirty. This was not the case when we were there. The room was quite clean. The staff was very professional. The restaurant was ok. I was with a friend and one of us really liked the...

This hotel looks really nice from the outside. The pool is lovely and it was nice to come back after a long day of exploring and go for a swim. The food was average - they served the same buffet food two nights in a row though. My room faced the pool and it was very noisy as people were...
