Amazing location, great staff, hotel a bit tired”
The staff were great - really helpful and accommodating to us and our two children. The chef was amazing, really great food. Great location, just 10 min jeep ride to entrance of Udawalala national park. The hotel needs to have a bit of TLC; the pool was lovely but there were sharp edges to the tiles, which they warned us about, and the toilets etc were a bit dated. With a bit of an update, this hotel could be 5*, particularly as its such a good location. We didn’t mind too much as we got a good rate, the hotel was very quiet and the staff were so helpful, friendly and accommodating to our family. I definitely recommend.

Great place, beautiful location”
Room and shower room were lovely, food was great. Grounds were lovely. Hotel arranged safari at good price. Staff were very nice and helpful. Only negatives were that there were loads of mosquitos at night and there wasn't a plug in insect repellent or mosquito net. Had there been these it would have been excellent all round.

Needs some work”
The hotel has somewhat of an apocalyptic feel to it and is in need of some love. The staff were welcoming but the food was a bit uninspiring and overpriced. With little/no other option we actually decided to move on after one night partly as this worked better for us and partly due to the hotel.

The staff went over and beyond. They organised safari for us and were very attentive to all our potential need or wants. The only down side was the rooster screaming consistently between 4 to 6 am.

Location, swimming pool, accommodation
Only stayed one night but enjoyed our stay. Located very close to Uda Walawe National Park so perfect for our early morning Safari. The staff arranged tea and coffee and a snack pack for the kids for our 6am start which we greatly appreciated! Kids loved playing in the pool and the open air shower was a novelty! Would definitely stay again!

Empty and needs some TLC”
The staff were friendly and try to be as helpful as they can be, it was only a short drive to the park entrance, the hotel was different from the box standard hotels
We were the only guests at the hotel. On arrival we were told that the general electricity was out so we could not really settle into our room. The electricity did eventually come back on in an hour also. The room and bedding did not feel clean and the towels were stored in a cupboard and smelt of moth balls. There were also quite a lot of bugs within the room. We had dinner at the restaurant and had to wait for a long time for some beers and when the food finally arrived, it was over salted the meat was not edible as it was so tough. The staff were friendly however and tried as best as they could. Generally the hotel could be nice if it is maintained and is to be given some much needed TLC.

The staff were very friendly and helpful. The room was ok but quite dark. The pool was a little shabby. The staff organised us a very good half day safari.

At the high end of 3 star...”
closeness to Udawalawe National Park, the tree in our bathroom, the Safari they arranged for us
We arrived at the hotel quite late as we misjudged the time to get there from the rain forrest. At 22:30 the stuff was already in bed... we found a note at the reception and within minutes of our arrival the stuff was up again, handing us room key... preparing accommodation for our driver etc. There was a tree growing inside our bathroom, giving it a great atmosphere. Even that late the staff arranged a safari for the next morning, leaving at 6am... The park was great and we had a lot of good photo opportunities. The park itself is less crowded than Yala and the wildlife was comparable (except for the leopard in Yala). Only down was that you have to order Sri Lankan food in advance... which of course we did not do. I definitely recommend this place.

Friendly”
staff, value
The staff at the Elephant Safari hotel was so friendly and helpful. They booked a safari for us that was better priced than anything I found online and was easy and convenient, and that safari was my favorite part of our whole trip to Sri Lanka. The hotel is rustic and blends perfectly with the surroundings, and the bathroom in our room was the greatest bathroom I have ever seen! It was a modern full bathroom with a beautiful large tile shower built around an existing tree. So cool!

Tolles Essen, Freundlichkeit, Nähe zum Park
Ein sehr herzlicher Empfang, Die Anlage hatte sicher mal eine tolle Zeit. Gartenanlage und die Wege sollten instandgesetzt werden. Im Pool schaftkantige Fliesen am Boden. Im Zimmer brummt die Wand, da die Klimaanlage ohne Gummipuffer direkt an der Aussenwand in Betthöhe montiert ist. Fan hatte nur eine Geschwindigkeit, viel zu schnell. Im Bad, Strassen von Ameisen zum Empfang. Ein Zimmer, das längere Zeit nicht benutzt wurde, könnte gelüftet sein.

Mr. Susantha was heel hulpvaardig en hielp ons aan een hele goed driver.
Fijn verblijf, mooie buitenbadkamer en resort ligt niet ver van Uda Walawe NP vandaan. De kinderen hadden veel plezier met alle ganzen die er rondlopen.
