Absolutely terrible Slow internet
Quaint hotel in the middle of nowhere. The staff was friendly and gave suggestions of nearby restaurants. In terms of liveability - the bathrooms were below standard and the electricity went more than once in a night. Overall - good enough for a backpacker hotel but if you are expecting anything remotely luxurious, do yourself a favour and cough up a little extra cash!

It was descent room, but bit pricey

We only stayed at this hotel for one night as we wanted to climb the Sigiriya Rock the next morning. The hotel has an interesting layout, the restaurant is descent and outside which gives sort of nice feel. Our room was kinda low standard I felt, the beds are uncomfortable and the air-conditioning was not really working. I had found a deal for a 4 star hotel the same price as this hotel, so it is difficult to not think of that in this review. It did feel clean and it's in a descent location.

very comfortable, homely and quiet.
cleanliness, quiet atmosphere., friendly staff.
Check-In was absolutely easy and the staff at the front desk was very helpful. The rooms were spacious and comfortable and very clean. Although it's very close to the main road the atmosphere was so quiet that we all had a good night sleep. The food was very good and the area where the food was served was clean and attractive - specially in the night.

Cost effective hotel
cheap, clean, big room
Although the room condition was good, the internal key of the door was broken for 2 rooms out of 3 rooms. Even the hotel staff insisted on safety, I think the most important point is lacking.

Only one night stay
Nearby city and nothing else
We were not happy with the hotel at all. Middle of the night, there was no electricity, we went looking for any staff who could help, but no one was around. We were not informed about what was going on. No electricity from 2am till 8am in my room. No proper explanation from the staff in the morning. Left the hotel as soon as possible
