I am not going to say too many detrimental things about the hotel but it is not one that I would ever stay in again as it was quite shabby. Our room was on the 3rd floor and there is no lift. Reception staff slack and not friendly. Breakfast was due to start at 6.30 am but by 6.45 staff... More

We checked in at the hotel last 13th August but had to wait 10 -15 min to get a room. Also front office staff nor the room attendant who accompanied us to the room did't bother to explain... More

This is close to a forest and Nuwaraeliya lake. There is very little to do in and around the hotel. The facilities need upgrading but the employees are friendly and make up for the shortcomings. There are good deals at the Gem shop in the hotel.
