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.…
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
The restaurant faced to Beautiful view of the river, food quality is average but quality of service great from AMILA, without asking he brought some non spicy potato curry for my children, that touch make me to review thank you Amila well done keep up your great service.
Amazing stay. The room was very nice, clean, with aircon, modern bathroom and a big balcony with a nice view. Good wifi. The restaurant was open when we arrived at 20.00 in the evening, and had good food. We got a huge breakfast in the morning with toast, coffe, muffins, egg, fruit, sri lankan breakfast with rice, and fresh juice. We could see a couple of elephants bathing at 08.30 in the morning when we were eating breakfast. All the elephants came down to bathe in the river at 10.00. A fantastic sight.

When I was there lot of foreigners was in the hotel too Meals are delicious and have good variations to select. Wanna go again
