    Worth the Visit.”

    Good View, nice staffs, and good breakfast.

    Location is far from the touristic site: the Sigrya Rock. The hotel is actually closer than the nearby city than Sigria. But our complaint turns into WOW when we finally arrived at the hotel after hour long drive. The design of the hotel itself is good and the scenary is awsome. Be spare half of the day linger around the pool side to admire the lake view.

    Good hotel, but lacked basic things.”

    Friendly staff, good buffet, nice view of lake.

    My room in the hotel on the top floor had an excellent view of the lake, and the room itself was clean and comfortable. The buffet was also excellent and the staff were friendly. However for the cost basic things like internet and English language channels were lacking, and also despite being in an area near many tourist attractions they were not set up for arranging tours.

    Good location for sightseeing”

    Location, quiet surroundings, air conditioned

    We chose this hotel as the price is high in this area and that gave me warranty. But not very good as expected, especially bathroom. But I think this hotel offer good breakfast, which contains international as well as local.

    Large hotel for mass tourism”

    Good location for Pollonaruwa, wildlife etc.

    Busloads full of tourists are brought in every day. An outdated and overpriced hotel which desperately needs an upgrade. The "dinning hall" is hot without airco and the food is very middle of the road.

    standard hotel set up with small room”

    big size swimming pool

    book this hotel because of the sun set lake view. however, the hotel seen like cater for group tour customers as buses of buses of tourist being send here for buffer lunch & dinner. room is simple & small ,not value for money charge especially on deluxe room. the buffer also very basis , nothing impressive to sound. lake view actually not really that impressive as the trees front the hotel covers quite a portion of the lake. one things great is the big swimming pool allow you to relax after a long day drive.but again, to come all the way to the lake side for this hotel not worst the journey.

    LOvely hotel”

    The view from the reception is stunning - nice views fromn the rooms too. The service was very good.
    The Hotel bedrroms badly needs refurbishment - the en suit facilities are awful.

    This is not a hotel for overnight stay, unless it is marketed as 1 to 2 star. By all means, stop here for a cup of tea en route but do not stay overnight, unless you were a backpacker.

    nice hotel but overpriced ”

    nice lake view, rooms with balcony
    isolated location

    expensive internet hotel was quite empty on the first night, and accordingly the breakfast selection was quite limited (toast bread is nice, other breads were not edible). The second night, a tour group was there and they pulled out a very extensive hot and cold breakfast buffet with nice bread as well.

    Location facing the lake
    Decortion and furtniture

    Location is good for both setting (west, nice sunset) and close to Polonnawura/Sigiriya area. Beer is overpriced. Food ok excluding what they call thai salad. Pool is ok-ish but the water looked a bit dirty after 30+ people visited it in the evening (be first).

    View, Pool
    Old

    Hotel was ok but not worth, although being a big holiday weekend in Sri Lanka most were pretty well booked. Better value at the local rate with half board. Hotel is old and could do with a spruce up. The rooms are big, AC works as does hot water. TV only has 4 (local) channels. Breakfast was a bit sparse but didn't go hungry, dinner had good selection. Big pool with nice surrounding area, and a great view over the lake. Friendly staff.

    Good value for the Cultural Triangle”

    Good value for money. Pool area and views across the lake stunning; Ayurvedic massage on site
    Room basic

    This hotel is very good value for money compared to other hotels we stayed in at the Cultural Triangle. In fact it is the only hotel of the 3 we stayed in at the Triangle which I would recommend. Firstly I'll say that the rooms are fairly basic and I agree with another reviewer in that they certainly need a tart up with some new furniture and fittings. However we spent very little time in the room as the pool deck area was the place to relax and cool down after a long day of sightseeing. The hotel also had an Ayurvedic spa on site, and my foot massage was a great way to treat myself and prepare for another day of sightseeing. Staff were also good. Bottom line: I would stay here again.

    Размещение в бунгало. Это очень красивые трехэтажные домики напоминающие домики на дереве из детства. Очень современная начинка номера - есть вся возможная техника, хороший душ. Еда в номер - тоже отличная, очень вкусная. На заметку - не оставляйте на столике возле бунгала еду - ее растащат дикие зваери. Рядом потрясающей красоты озеро, можно купаться, взять лодку.
