                I was very very surprised to note the monkeys within the hotel boundaries and specially the "faeces" (monkey shit) everywhere (on the walk ways, on roofs, roofs, everywhere) and the singe was nasty. Further, the trees near the pool (royal palm) was infested with parrots at night and morning their droppings were evident near the pool and in the pool and the combination of the two smells made us loose our appetite. This is s very serious health hazard and the management has to look into this as if animal faeces gets into a wound, or digested while in the pool, it can be deadly. The hotel is fabulous no doubt but the serious health issue should be addressed immediately.

                Room was lovely and spotlessly clean ,buffet breakfast is really good and we had dinner which was excellent Lots of outdoor walks but the signage and maps not great . It's easy to get lost there and it would make more of the site if they had location maps on boards around the site . Staff very friendly and courteous We would like to have used a gym but the hotel has a pool and great walks but no gym. Was a little surprised for a hotel of this calibre Overall a great stay

                Nicely kept grass with scattered trees mostly Kumbuk (Terminalia arjuna) trees. Huge garden with Jogging and cycling track overlooking lake and Tree houses. This classic hotel managed by Cinnamon is better than newly built so called Eco friendly hotels which serves low quality food.

                We managed to see Dambulla Caves, Anuradhapura, Sigiriya, an afternoon safari at Minireya/ Kaudulla and Polonuwara using this hotel as a base. The rooms were good - ours had a huge balcony, but we didn't actually use this as there were monkeys around and I'm terrified of them! The pool area was clean and well managed, with a good pool bar service. The restaurant was the best we have come across in all the 8 hotels we stayed at (including compared to the Anantara resort in Tangalle) - the variety of food, change in menu each day and the amazing desserts are amongst the best we have come across in our travels. The staff were extremely friendly, stopping to chat and remembering specific likes. The only downside (if one could call it that) was the slightly slower service in the coffee lounge and the lack of entertainment in evenings. However this did not affect us as we were using the hotel as a touring base and had early starts so did not really miss any entertainment.

                Beautiful hotel, rammed full of very large and boisterous coach partiies”
                This is a beautiful property in a very good location. However it caters to very, very large coach parties. 250+ coach party guests when we stayed. All of whom arrive on masse. The buffet was reminiscent of queuing for school diners, and there were insufficient staff to manage the number of loud and boisterous guests. The limited selection at breakfast unsurprisingly catered for guests from China - based on the clientele. If you can put up with screaming children, chaos and a holiday camp atmosphere this is the very place for you! Such a shame as the hotel rooms, built as villas in serene grounds with a rural setting are well thought out and spacious. Also be aware if you book a room with a balcony there is no Tudor furniture so you cannot sit out due to the large troops of naughty monkeys terrorizing the place!

                There are just too many details that do not justify the rates this hotel charges. It is a beautiful set up, large and comfortable rooms, great pool, nice restaurant and bar. However, staff is poorly trained and not able to deliver the quality service you would expect from such a hotel (worst experience was a cat in the bar that jumped on my table when having dinner. Bar staff thought it was funny, I was disgusted). Overall, food is decent, location is alright, rooms are nice. Too pricy for what you get though.

The breakfast buffet too was great - loads to choose from. Pity that we were there just one night - you need more time to enjoy all the facilities at the hotel.

                Excellent room. Very clean. Superb swimming pool. Beautiful grounds. Friendly and helpful staff. The hotel is used by coach tours so the main restaurant can seem a bit large and impersonal. There are other dining options (2 specialist restaurants and food at the bar) but the first two are not well used The buffet food is excellent as is the copious buffet breakfast The bird spotting morning walk with a short trip on the lake is well worth doing You my wish to consider jeep hire (Rana near the roundabout is a good option) or using tuktuks to get to Sigiriya as the hotel tours are much more expensive.
