We didn't stay here, we were staying at Elephant Bay Hotel, but we kept coming here for dinners and drinks. What a beautiful setting, away from the main street, so quiet, and the pool looked fantastic. We asked to see the rooms - I wish we had stayed here instead of where we did. We looked them up on Booking.com but it says 'sold out', apparently they're in some kind of dispute with them and this must be a tactic - contact Villa Pinnawala directly - they have rooms available! Beautifully landscaped too

What a lovely place! Nice pool surrounded by rice paddies. Villas are spacious with great bathrooms open to the sky but with modern fittings. WiFi and TV if you so desire. Good food at cafe at very reasonable prices and just across the road from the elephant orphanage round the corner from their bathing spot. It is all very elephanty here!

My friend and I stayed one night to catch up with friends. We stayed in the standard room which was nice. It had all the amenities we needed and the bathroom and room was clean. We had a few initial problems with the staff dealt with quickly and were very friendly. The down side is that the food is bad so we had to get a tuk tuk to the nearest town for pizza. We wouldn't stay again as there is not alot to do, we only came because of the elephants.The food isn't great which is why I gave them an average rating. I would not choose to stay here agin.

Horrendous overpriced dreadful hotel. Rooms were unhealthy and falling apart with mould on the wall. Food (dinner and breakfast) was disgusting. Terrible slow service Staff friendly - but what a waste of time
