    Fabulous - watching the elephants at sunset”
    From the moment we drove up the driveway - we knew we had booked something special. The grounds, the rooms, the staff, restaurant and facilities were all excellent. The drive from Kandy to The Deer Park Hotel was very stressful with the traffic and the way the Sri Lankans drive - the peaceful setting of The Deer Park Hotel was a very welcomed surprise. The Manager - Roy, was very visible around the Resort, enquiring about out stay and that we were happy with everything. Which we were - highly recommend!

    This looks even better in real life compared to the photos online. The staff is very friendly and professional. The rooms with the outdoor bathrooms are amazing! Best rooms of our holiday in Sri Lanka. The grounds are amazing, only they could update the pool a little. Stay here if you want to stay in the area!

    Acceptable”
    It started with an alert to pay in advance while we made a deal to pay on arrival. They promised to cancel if we did not take action! On arrival they tried to overcharge us by more than 60 dollars. It should have been 201 doillars for 2 nights. To convince us of their wrongdoings it costed us more than hour. After that we needed half an hour to complain to agoda. The breakfast ended at 9 0'clock which is NOT relaxing. The room was NOT cleaned, although we asked for it. There was NO balcony, nor a terrace, although we booked it. One staff member did his utter best: that was Chaminda, the barkeeper! The hotel is more orientated on bus groups. Not on individual travelers.

    Tranquility in the centre of Sri Lanka Cultural Triangle”
    We stayed 4 nights at the Deer Park Hotel. It was a convenient place for us to organise day tours to Anurdrahapura, Polonnaruva and Sirigiya. The hotel is also very close to the fabulous Minneriya National Park where you can see over 200 elephants in the wild. Hotel is clean and comfortable but watch out for monkeys. Food is mainly for European guest. Could expand choice to include more Asian food. Otherwise we enjoyed the hospitality of the staff during our stay at the Deer Patk Hotel.

    Lovely location ”
    The setting is beautiful, rooms are clean and comfortable, staff are friendly and remember your preferences. My only small complaint is the dining room noise at dinner is too loud due to the constant creation of kotti for the buffet. Choose a seat as far as possible from that station. On the positive food was freshly prepared and tasted good.

    Not up to expectations ”
    Rooms are musti and damp Even though the prices are 5 star the services and buffer was not up to standard. I had to request the waiter to fill the empty rice serving unit. The curtain we very old and dusty Room service is not run as a five star or even a 4 star. It took them 35 minutes to bring tea and a simple sandwich at 4pm within the restaurant. The room s were very old with very limited lighting and air. On my the reception was welcoming. We were not happy for what we paid. The kribath and curry was good and tasty.

    This is a terrific place to use as a center point to national parks and cultural triangle. Bird watching here is also amazing from the bar or front patio!

    We stayed here for two nights in order to visit Polonnaruwa. This hotel is in a village a short distance from Polonnaruwa, but we took a bus there and a tuk tuk back without a problem. The hotel is in an amazing setting with a great view. The rooms are individual cabins with a unique charm. We stayed here for our honeymoon and the staff made a special effort to make our stay memorable. We ate in the hotel restaurant which served high quality Sri Lankan food.

    Comfortable hotel, idyllic location, a little lacking in atmosphere.”
    This is the perfect place to get away from it all. It's very peaceful with beautiful surroundings. We spotted an elephant across the lake on our first day. It was also the first place in Sri Lanka we found where we could get good lattes! On the downside, the buffet dinner is less than you would expect from a hotel of that calibre and our waiter put a lot of pressure on us to eat from there rather than ordering from the a la carte. I haven't ever experienced that kind of attitude in a hotel before. However, the other staff members were very accommodating. The safari was a low point. It was quite cheap (€30 each total) so I suppose you get what you pay for. But the cover was supported by steel bars which were very close to our heads and the terrain was very rough so we were knocked around a bit and I hit my head off one of the steel bars. They needed to be higher and cushioned in some way. I wouldn't do it again. However, overall we had a pleasant stay and enjoyed our time there.

    Hospitality par exellence !”
    Location ticked the box straight away . Awesome scenery infront of Giritale reservoir. Horticultural marvel with professional landscaping make this property stand out without competition. Resident manager Roy Wootler was the key for this property to do so well. It was quite evident of his commitment from the time we checked in until the departure. His guest care carried a warm sense of care and hospitality with detail to ensure the guest is well looked after by his team. True gift to the owners and hats off to Roy ! Food was excellent both eastern and western cuisine . Less variety with limited choice but all the essentials were on board. The calypso band played during the meal time was out of the world. Great talent. Both of us enjoyed the pool during the time we were at the hotel and Elkaduwa who ran the show needs recognition. Its the staff of this calibre make up a unique team and Deer Park is blessed with that asset.

    Lovely Sanctuary of Peace and Calm”
    We stayed 4 nights at Deer Park and used it as our base to travel out of. View to lake (tank) is beautiful and stunning in the evenings. Pool area was lovely with 2 large pools amidst lush green gardens. Staff were very helpful and went out of their way to make us comfortable. Rooms vary quite a bit, but we were lucky and were upgrdaed to one of the newest with great views - it was great. Good to check which room you book as some of the older ones are not so pleasant. Food from the reastuarant was usually very good (we had just one evening where we were not so impressed). Lots of monkeys around so good to keep all belongings indoors. Perhaps also worth noting that June and July can be quite windy in this part of Sri Lanka.
