Hotel Elephant Bay
Ranked #4 of 12 Pinnawala B&B and Inns
Reviewed December 22, 2009

Hotel Elephant Bay offers great service, with value, offering B&B, half or full board. The chef created beautiful meals. The staff were extremely helpful, keen to serve. The location of the hotel makes it a little hard to find but it is on the bank of the river at which the elephants from the Orphanage come to bath. Rooms have TV, A/C, and fans, many with small balconies overlooking the river.
