Lake Edge Holiday Inn
Ranked #3 of 88 Tissamaharama B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed September 11, 2013

I may be the only reviewer of hotels in Tissa who had the time to actually visit other properties before making my decision, but I arrived early enough to see 7 hotels and guest houses with the Hotel Edge being the last one, and definitely the best of the lot. The hotel has 7 clean and comfortable rooms, the more expensive enjoy balconies with views over a beautiful lake. The hotel is also a stone's throw from one of the ancient stupas in Tissa and the food is excellent. Ignore your guide book's recommendations, I saw all of those. If you come to Tissa you want to be on the edge of one of its lakes, and this hotel is the perfect choice.

Room Tip: Spend the extra rupees for the balcony rooms.

On the side of Lake Debarawewa, next to Lake Tissa, away from the bustle of the town, Lake Edge was a comfortable stay for us while we did the Yala safari. Walking around the lake is a recommended to see if you can spot any crocodiles. Also, relaxing in their hammocks underneath the coconut trees!

The spot is a little breezy all the time but this made for a comfortable nights sleep in our fan room. Good food at standard guesthouse rates. The family running the guesthouse were wonderful; very kind and helpful!

Room Tip: Ground floor rooms are cheaper; do not need AC

We stayed here for one night and made the Yala Safari. It was a really great time and they organise everything for the safari: guide, jeep, breakfast for the tour. :) the rooms are clean and the beds comfortable.
Thank you very much!

Stayed here for two nights. What a view!!! We had a room for 3000rs with view on the lake. It's not in town, but with the free bikes you can cycle to town within 20-30min. The food was lovely and the owners were very friendly and know what hospitality is!!! Would recommend this place to everyone! Suggestion: since the garden is huge, maybe a BBQ or more hammocks could be an idea?

My man and I got this hotel recommended from a tourist information office, were planning on staying here for 2-3 nights just to go to the Yala National Park. We stayed a whole week. From the moment we met this beautiful young family and got to look around the building we we're trapped here. Atmosphere was very remote and peaceful, the wife and manager of the house, Lakmali makes the BEST food in Sri Lanka, we ate at hundreds of amazing restaurants and guest houses, but never met a match. They hired a cook since Lakmali is pregnant, she taught him very well too, he is young but has an amazing sense of taste. Food here is very reasonably priced, and very delicious. The place is right by the lake, we borrowed bicycles and spent most of our days cycling around the lake looking at beautiful landscapes, crocodiles and birds. We were never bothered by anyone. Husband and owner Chaminda is very sweet and helpful. We went on a Safari with a guide that was not hired by the hotel, but we met both of them around the lake a few times and they told us a lot about the crocodiles and animal life in the area. They know a lot. The rooms are big, well priced and clean. There is no other place in Tissamaharama to stay but here. Will return here for sure! Alda and Sam
