The spacious and comfortable rooms cluster around a two tier swimming pool set into the... More

This hotel is set in a lovely lakeside setting. The restaurant in particular has an excellent menu. The well prepared food is beautifully presented by knowledgeable, friendly staff - and all with a marvellous view across the lake.

We stayed at this hotel for one night as part of a tour of Sri Lanka. The room was large and comfortable with a rustic feel. The shower temperature was a bit hit and miss even when we turned on the water heater switch in the room. We had a room on the first floor which had a smaller than... More
