We went to Priyankara on a friend's recommendation and were very surprised. The room we had was excellent. The food was good and the service we received was fabulous. Special mention must be made of the manager-Hemantha who went out of his way to make our stay a pleasant one. It is a small hotel but a good one.

The rooms are really below average. Small with very small and old bathrooms with mediocre plumbing. The rooms in a "new wing" are somewhat bigger than in the older wing. The swimming pool is nice (with a nice view), the food is OK. For one nights it's OK (to visit Yala), but do not expect too much. The Mandara Rosen in Kataragama, where we also stayed, is much better, but is a bit further away from Yala.

Access to Hotel: Located quite far off from the downtown.

Food:
Food is good and tasty. Breakfast has less varities...String hoppers is the only lifeline for Veggies other than bread. Dinner Buffet had more varieties. Pool facing dinning hall was quite romantic.

Room and Service:
Rooms are neat and cozy. Sitout for the room was too good. I stayed in a room (103) @ the ground floor which has a backdoor (Glass door) connecting to the pool. @ night somebody (room sercive guy) tried to peep into my room through this glassdoor which made me feel uncomfortable. Better to take a room in 1st floor.

Outside Hotel:
This Hotel is 17 kms away from Kataragama.

Other Activites: Kataragam temple is nearby. Also heard that ppl stop here before going to Yale National Park.

Sumup: 2 days stay at this hotel will be relaxing.

Room Tip: Relaxing for couples

Of the 6 hotels we stayed at in Sri Lanka this was the only hotel not a 4 or 5 star 'international' hotel - but I think I enjoyed it best of all.
First of all I should point out there are 2 types of rooms, newly renovated rooms and grotty unrenovated rooms. The renovated rooms are excellent, No problems at all and more comfortable than some of the old 4 star 'character' hotels on the island.
Free WiFi that worked well and staff always smiling and eager to please.
Very nice swimming pool from which we saw nearly as much birdlife as on the safari trips.
Room had a nice balcony overlooking the pool with chairs.
Its a small hotel, so not the very large buffets you find at the larger hotels, but should be something there for everyone. For hotel snobs, the fact they do their own thing may be a problem. Personally I found jelly with bananas as a sweet option refreshingly down to earth, only wish more hotels would go back to basics sometimes in the restaurant.
