Above average
The couple running it were lovely and their little boy lovely. The owner of the property whom we never saw is simply trying to make a fast buck. The property is run down, and a mess. The bathroom light did not work, it was replaced later, the tV although new did not work, it did have a lovely Blue glow but this also vanished. No kettle, no cups, no glasses. The air con did it's own thing, all night untill i coudn't stand the noise any longer and turned it off about 2am. As l said the couple who ran it were lovely and excellent food.

Good for a night if going to national park
We stayed just one night which was enough. The pros are the location with it being only 1 km from park entrance. Also the staff which is a lovely family who cooked us a very beautiful curry for dinner and eggs and toast for breakfast. Also they have a safari truck which we rented at a very competitive price and a great driver who did not race through the park but still managed to find a leopard for us. On the downside is there are no facilities here, no wifi and quite isolated. Room was old but suitable for a night.

excellent can't recommend enough
Staff at elephant rest were so helpful and made everything so easy for us. They organised the next day for us including the safari in 5 minutes. The safari was really great and the park is 5 minutes by car. We had the best meal (home made Sri Lanka food) we had in one week here. Great people, great place to stay!

Decent Base to Safari
Stayed here one night due to its proximity to the national park. Friendly hosts with a very cute baby but not much English. Arranged a deal on the safari jeep in exchange for driver accommodation. Restaurant only serves Sri Lankan fare i.e. rice and curry but breakfast was reasonable. Setting among sugarcane fields was different.

Fantastic
This place has some shocking reviews and I don't know why. It's clean, comfortable and a very short drive from the entrance to the national park. On top of that the people who own it are lovely, really friendly and welcoming, and the food is fantastic. Some of the best rice and curry we had on our trip

Good 7.8 L. Clunas, Scotland, March 2016
The location is excellent for access to the National Park. The manager was very helpful and advised us on sights to visit in the surrounding area and arranged access to the National Park. The food was excellent with European style breakfast and Sri Lankan curry in the evening. The manager and his wife were very friendly and attentive.The room was spacious with its own outdoor seating area but it was a little run down and had no mosquito net. This is a fantastic location for visiting the National Park which is only five minutes away.

Great food. Clean room.
Food is very good. TV in the room.
The hotel is good enough for one night. The room was ok, no mosquito net but air con. There is a fridge but not really clean and is in fact useless. The bathroom was sufficiently clean. First time I had a TV in Sri Lanka... but not a single channel in English. Was still funny to watch. Food was very good and maybe the best this place has to offer. I found the hotel however a bit overrated but it must be because of the Fridge, the TV and the AirCon.. all three not really needed if you got a mosquito net. The fan would be enough.

You'd better choose others'
Compared with the service, the price is just so so! At the same price, you have better choice!
