We liked this small hotel. The rooms are very good, the view from a terrace to the lake is amazing. We enjoyed the evening walk by the lake watching flowers, trees, birds and even domestic elephants. The food was good too. Both buffet and when not enough guests a la carte. I would not hesitate to return to this place.

Lovely Rooms with an unbelievable view. If not for the chatter of the House keeping staff the only noise you hear is the flow of water & time to time the bells from the Elephants which are doing the Elephant Walk.

My room had a Loft & a 3rd Bed which I thought would have been ideal for a Family of 3. Very friendly staff but not professionally trained on mannerisms.

I truly didn't enjoy the Omlett, which was the only food i ordered from Hotel. Pool looks lovely.

My late morning sleep was disturbed by very noisy Housekeeping staff in the Corridor, next room & MY BALCONY.

Anyway I wish all the best to this new Hotel & hope my next stay will be more pleasant.

Room Tip: All rooms have an excellent view of the Lake & the Sky.

We arrived at the hotel with a group in the late afternoon.The check in was quick and the rooms were all ready.The room was very big and clean.It had a balcony overlooking the lake.The staff was halpfull with explaining how to use the wall electric socket.They showed us their special way of using a pencil in order to make it work !
In the evening we had dinner in a nice dining room with a lot of choices.The variety included both local and European food.The waiters did not know too well English but were kind.In the same dining room we had next day the breakfast.Here too we had plenty of choices.The food was tastfull.Omlets and pancakes were prepared on the spot.
The hotel has a nice pool.There is a bar in the loby with alcoholic drinks too and live music in the evening.
In the room they had mini bar ,tea/coffee maker,airconditioning,TV set and the bathroom was very big too with hair dreyer.
You can order from the hotel trips on elephants for 45 minutes.Not expensive.They are leaving from the entrance of the hotel.

Room Tip: The hotel has only three floors but no elevator.Ask for the lake side view rooms-they all have balco...

The Sorowwa is a very nicely located property.It is on a lake and all rooms have Lake view. the pool is good and clean. The Food is excellent.The Staff is very helping. The welcome is warm and nice.We had an excellent New Year party hoisted by the Hotel.The Fire works at mid night was Great.The Food for New Year Dinner was outstanding with tremendous varity specially of Sea Food.
Enjoyed our stay totally.
The Hotel needs to improve the last 30 meters of its entry road, which was just a village track.
Better dress for Staff will be a welcome change.

Room Tip: Select any of the Lake View room on First Floor.

Very nice view from all rooms and clean and nice rooms. Nothing bad to say but not top of the class. Nice and midrange. Restaurant does nothing more then satisfy your hunger, try to eat before you arrive.

Just outside the small town of Harabana this hotel is an ideal locational choice for visiting the highlights of the cultural triangle. It’s a newish building beside a large tank, around which elephant rides are given – fun to watch. Despite a rather barrack block first impression from the approach road, this is a small, modern, minimalistic style hotel, beautifully furnished and accessorised. It has a small, attractive and rather chilly swimming pool as it does not get the sun. Didn’t stop us swimming though!

The room was spacious and easily kept cool with AC; it had huge windows overlooking the tank and a very large balcony which was mostly too hot to use but very good for drying washing. Staff were helpful and unobtrusive. Bathroom has a window open to the hallway so you have to be careful not to let insects into the main room through it, not a very good design feature but seems to be quite common here – why AC the room if there is an opening for outside into the bathroom? One fault was that there was a bad drains smell every time we used the shower.
Useful kettle and fridge in the room and everything was replenished except that both mornings we were there they forgot to put in towels. Bed was huge and comfortable.

The dining room purported to provide good cooking but was a bit of a let down. Two nights the hotel was busy and there was a buffet, not much difference on the two nights, and in between we had a la carte with just the same items on again! Breakfast was also rather bland and uninteresting.

Room Tip: A view over the lake is a must
