Good location and very inexpensive. Bring your own shampoo however as they only provide basic bars of soap. Room has air-con and small balconies. Bathroom was neat and modern-ish. Comfortable and reasonable. The Sri Lankan breakfast is a must. I'd stay here again if I need a basic but clean well appointed room for 1-2 nights.
We spent one night at the Hotel Pinnalanda, Pinnawala. It is a family-friendly hotel with the essentials. Whilst the facility is rather basic, it is easy to overlook this with the amazing view of the elephants that the hotels offer their guests. The view of the river and the elephants in the morning was breathtaking - all this from the comfort of your balcony in the hotel room. The staff were extremely welcoming and hospitable and while the dinner options in the restaurant were limited, the staff were accommodating and willing to prepare something special (not on the menu). We were unable to use to the pool due to ongoing renovations at the time of our stay, however, from what we observed, the pool offered a breathtaking view of the elephants in the river - this would most certainly be an incredible alternative to viewing the elephants from your balcony. In summary, a pleasant family-friendly basic hotel that provides a fantastic elephant viewing experience at Pinnawala. Note: we were somewhat displeased to see some of the elephants at Pinnawala with chains on their feet. On inquiring about this, we were told that these were elephants that were in the process of being domesticated and that the chains would be removed after a few months. The accuracy of this statement is unverified; however, we did see a significant number of wild elephants (without chains) bathing in the river.…
I have stayed there a few times; the Staff was friendly and good enough. The rooms and bathroom were clean, and the bed is comfortable So I can recommend this to you! Few steps to Pinnawala elephant orphanage and zoo. My rating 9/10
It is very clean and nice room, washrooms also very clean. Well maintained. Foods are also ok. This is situated in front of pinnawala elephant orphanage. Staff also friendly. You will have a buffet at ground flow resturant, with few varieties.
Don't be fooled. This is a second listing and the same place as HOTEL ELEPHANT PARK Our room stunk of sewage Blood stain on wall Festy black mould and hairs on tiles Door didn't shut properly Dust and cobwebs thick behind television Food from restaurant deplorable Mentioned this all to the manager and showed him the photos, he simply said " all good thankyou " Avoid at all costs
