early morning drive from Colombo airport to Pinnawela and the humid weather took a toll on us. still we dare to drive down to Dambulla into this resort. Entering the resort amidst lush green surroundings gave a huge relief and kindled freshness in us. Room boys helped us and soon we realised we were amidst nature unlike in the other...

Lovely resort in a great setting. Really nice orchard and friendly staff who we enjoyed cricket with. Rooms spacious and comfortable. Spent a night here while bicycle touring, our bikes just sat outdoors looked after by the staff.

We (6 adults) started our 2 week holiday here and fell in love with the hotel and staff immediately. Having expectations high , we weren't disappointed in the slightest.We unanimously declared the food here set the standard and the staff fantastic.....The following 2 nights in Thilanka Kandy were equally great ...Highly recommended !

The hotel is set in wonderful grounds full of wildlife, many fruit trees and paddy fields. It's very peaceful and relaxing and has a superb swimming pool as it's central feature. The pool was the main draw for us as we are travelling with our young son. Unfortunately the general upkeep, maintenance and hygiene of the rooms really lets it...

So we stayed at this hotel with high expectations - given the price tag for SL in particular, and left pretty underwhelmed. The main building is nice, and the pool is very, very cool. Likewise the rooms are nice and relatively modern, but the small details really let this place down, and mean that we felt we didn't get value...

We stayed here for the first two nights of our holiday, and were a little disappointed with the room. Our room was at the front of the hotel and in need of upgrading, however it was a good size room and clean. Breakfast and evening meals were ok. Internet only worked in the main reception/dining are. Nice pool and surrounding...

Whilst this hotel is clean and comfortable with great rooms, the food was disappointing. Served buffet style, we always found it cold. The bar is lovely but they could have warned us that it was closed on Christmas Day!
