We stayed here for two nights whilst we toured around, and this was certainly one of the better hotels we stayed at in Sri Lanka. Lots of wildlife around on the site, large pool (but didn’t get time to use it), well laid out site although it can be a longish walk from public areas to your room - one day it rained heavily whilst we were there, but every room had its own umbrella and, once you’d remembered the route back to your room, all was OK.
Our room was large, well laid out, firm bed (but not uncomfortably so) and had its own balcony where we sat one night for drink after dinner. However, this is one of those hotels where you put your key into a holder inside the door to get the electrical power switched on. Beware - when we sat out on our balcony we succeeded in locking ourselves out - but the staff sorted it out for us very quickly.
The dinner and breakfast buffets were excellent - both with a wide range of foods - and the local dishes thankfully weren’t toned down to match European tastes.
Yet again, if you don’t have the cash to pay the bill in SL rupees then I recommend using a credit card but make sure you ask for the bill to be paid in rupees - otherwise the hotel takes its 3% charge on conversion - as it does if you ask to pay with non-SL currency - and uses a poor exchange rate.
