Lovely Stay
we had a wonderful time.. really recommend staying. once all the tourists leave for the day you have the hotel overlooking the river all to yourself and get to see the elephants in the morning before non-guests are allowed in....

Memorable Stay
Comfortable beds, cleanliness and location
Excellent location to watch bathing elephants. Courteous staff. Stayed in a river view room. Enjoyed the soothing sound of Maha Oya flowing on the granites throuout the night. If pop up come to upgrade, please do not accept. If clicked, your bookings will actually downgraded for an additional $12 to a garden view room. Careful to select the river view rooms. I am lucky that for an additional $10, my downgraded room was upgraded to a river view room. Thanks for the manager and receptionist both are extremely helpful. Missed the Sri Lankan traditional hopper breakfast that should be booked 12 hrs in advance. Nevertheless staff gave me a rice and fish curry breakfast, that was bloody good. Western breakfast is pretty ordinary. Staff are helpful and made my stay comfortable. Rather than paying $20/person entrance fee to the elephant sanctuary, visitors could get all the excitements in watching the elephants from the hotel. Nothing much to see inside the sanctuary anyway. Major attraction is elephant bath at the river.

Waking Up With Elephants
Location, Location, Location
The hotel had a superb location. We woke up with elephants bathing right outside our window. They walked straight past when they were taken for a swim twice a day, the most amazing view to watch. I booked two river view rooms over the Internet. When we got there, the rooms were miles apart and the staff insisted the hotel was full (we barely saw anybody there during our stay. Once the elephants leave the river, the people vanish. At dinner, there was only one other table with people and two at breakfast). We were eventually given one upgraded room, at the back, which was great. My husband and daughter said they had the best night's sleep. The bed was lovely and comfortable, with nice clean bedding. My other daughter and I were in probably in the worst possible room. One sheet to cover ourselves, disgusting carpet, broken bathroom door, lights that didn't work, awful curtains. Still, it was a superb location to watch the elephants for one night. This is a town where people come to see the elephants and then leave at the end of the day. If you want a peaceful, quiet place once the crowds depart, this is the place and totally worth it for one night.
