We stayed there with friends and Family in the month of Earlier May 2016. Very good hospitality. Peaceful and Good Rooms. Enjoyed the Stay. The Manager-Mr.Brain and all the sub-staff, even the cook also taking care very good. Enjoyed scenic view from Lakeview room. Viewing Sea-plane landing and take off in the lake from the lake is very good experience.

It seems that the parent company which handles reservations had not passed on our booking details to the...

Great, quiet location away from the fuzz in town. Colonial style house with beautiful views of Gregory lake. Friendly & attentive service at all times. The food was good & plentiful, both for breakfast and dinner. Walking distance to the city. We'd easily stay here again!

Had a wonderful time here with my wife. The rooms are spacious and the view is beautiful. Food was great and so was the service. Mr. Hemantha, the manager is very helpful and promptly attended when needed.

Lovely clean room with incredible view of Lake Gregory. The staff are great, really friendly and attentive. I didn't have any communication problems as other reviewers have commented. We...

This colonial style house has a lovely atmosphere and overlooks Gregory Lake. We stayed in room 3 which was spacious, with a Queen-size bed and a recently replaced shower unit. The location is only a 20 minute walk to the Town/Victoria Park. The staff are very friendly and want to help. Unfortunately there is a language barrier for those who...
