It's a small number of rooms with a huge busy restaurant, professional staff and a great pool. My room 106 had an unpleasant odour and was pretty ordinary, clean. The hotel is expanding. Drainage needs attention.

Pleasant oasis in a dusty town

Elegant decor with well-appointed rooms. Centrally located in town but managed to offer feel of being secluded. Good swimming pool
Really enjoyed our 2 night stay. There was little to dislike about the hotel. All aspects were above average for a place modestly calling itself 2* - it was miles better than some of the 4* hotels we visited in tourist resorts. Dinner was of good quality but the Sri Lankan breakfast was excellent. Excellent and underused pool adjacent to restaurant. Centrally located in an otherwise uninspiring town, hotel managed to create an ambience of being secluded. I would most certainly use this hotel again if visiting the Cultural Triangle.

Best Hotel Stayed in Sri Lanka for a Budget Trip

Cleanliness, Overall Room Condition, And Not Expensive At All
It was great. Just sad that we did not have the whole day to enjoy the pool and outdoor facilities. Its a real deal.

wouldnt recommend it.

comfy bed and that's all.
the first night, there was no hot water. staff fixed it for 45 mins and then we got the hot water back. the buffet breakfast was great though, however the second breakfast we had there wasn't buffet anymore, and its just okay. the room is extremely small, and no wifi in the room.

Great Base for Cultural Triangle

Swimming Pool, Staff, Location
Gets busy at lunchtime when the coach trips stop for the buffet and watch you in the pool. We used it as a relaxing base for day trips - most arranged via the great reception staff.
