A group of nine keen birders spent two nights at this very interesting and attractive location. With the Habarana Tank on one side and the lodges located in a garden full of trees and shrubs, we had an extravagance of birding. I had 47 species of birds on my list for this

Many thanks for taking time to post your experience at The Other Corner. We are delighted to note you had a good time with us. Also to note as a birder you were able to spot many species of birds and other flora and fauna during your stay with us. In fact we have recorded over 140 species of birds so far !! I am sure your next visit to TOC will add more to your bucket list. We can always accommodate our guests who are little nerves to walk the suspension bridge to drive over the Habarana tank bund and straight in to our property. But for most it is fun and an excitement to experience our suspension bridge :) Look forward to see you again at TOC with your family and keen birder friends in the near future !!

The staff were absolutely delightful and could not have been more helpful. This was one of the more affordable accommodation we stayed in during our family holiday in Sri Lanka and it was excellent value. The rooms were rustic with very large beds and mosquito nets. They had

The location is perfect. The property is quite nice for it's price. The service however was appalling. By service I don't mean the waiters, chef and the room service staff. They were the only reason I am giving it a 3star. We were given a beautiful tree house about 6 minutes

Thank you very much for taking time to post your review. We are very sorry for the inconvenience you have to experience, which is by no way an excuse from our side. Esp I am surprised for not having a telephone connection, umbrella etc, which are part of our room amenities. Further our stand by generator should switch on of any powder failure. We will certainly look in to all what you have mentioned. Will address your constructive crtisicm and rectify same in the future. Expericing insects after a heavy rain is an usual experience in such an envioronment, but our operational staff is there to address those !! Once again our apologies and it will be rest assured all such will not occur again !!

We arrived late in the evening but they went out of their way to have the pool lights on for us and get our dinner order prepared while we took a swim. The rooms were cozy and comfortable. When we got up in the morning and we could see it in the daylight, it was really pretty
