Thilanka A beautiful hotel, fantastic staff however there is construction work going on at the moment but that does not affect the facilities or view.

We only stayed 1 night here but really enjoyed the calmness after a huge day climbing Lion Rock at Sigirya and visiting sights in and around Dambulla. The rooms are huge with a big bathroom and outdoor seating area that looks over rice fields. The bar and restaurant were excellent. The pool is just off the foyer and looks out...

This is the place to stay if you are looking for a peaceful place after visiting the surroundings. Very nice and helpful staff. Excellent pool for relaxing. Special thanks to the manager Vasantha who took time to show and explain this place with its ricefields and djungle. Sure I come back!

Quite unusual design, all polished concrete. Very welcoming reception. Great, reasonably priced food. Enjoyed the pool. Setting very tranquil. The fact they are in process of building more rooms didn't bother us

This place is very good value for money. The rooms are huge, the beds comfortable. The breakfast is great and so was the coffee. The pool is also lovely to swim in. My low would only be the buffet dinner, food was slightly cold but we got there early. The best tip from me is to have a foot massage...

This was a good hotel, good staff and a good restaurant. The pool was lovely although the pool surroundings could do with being better. The beer was expensive as with most hotels in Sri Lanka. The food was of a good standard and not overly expensive. Our only negative thoughts are that it was quite far away from the town...

I stayed three nights here, and am struggling to find positive things to say. The first room I has allocated overlooked a construction site, had half used toiletries, and pictures hanging off the wall about to fall on top of you. To be fair, they then gave me a different room the next day but except for the view of...

An oasis in a vast sea of noise and traffic, this hotel is a well located in a mango grove next to some rice fields. Rooms are spacious and well appointed, common areas are welcoming. The elevated dining area offers a beautiful view of the countryside and the pool. Breakfast was excellent.
