We were booked into this hotel by our tour operator and found it of a high standard compared to some others we stayed in. Rooms have excellent quality furnishings and everything seems to be well maintained. The lake view rooms are lovely; with a good view and verandah overlooking the lake. The rooms at the back are small and without a view - so ask if you can move! Nice pool.
The only real issue we had was that the restaurant didn't serve dinner until 1945 which is too late for young children (my son is 5) Fortunately the staff were helpful and provided us with some rice from the kitchen - but there was no choice so fortunately he like rice! The other issue with the food was that there wasn;t any a la carte menu so you are forced to eat (and pay for) a full evening buffet meal every night which is expensive and much more food than we needed. As there aren't any other restaurants nearby this situation could be improved by offering at least some bar snacks or simple menu.
As one of the other reviewers pointed out - the grounds do look a bit liked the building has been plonked down and never quite finished but this didn't bother us!
We loved the nearby Sigiriya Rock - was one of the highlights of our trip.
