Duleep from Sri Lanka
Family with young children
Standard - Queen Bed
Stayed 2 nights in February 2017
Food is really expensive. But its tasty. Per night charge is high. Facilities are older since they g”
The location is supper since its the hub to Trinco, Plonaruwa, Anuradhapura, Batti, and even for nature lovers its great convenient place. Facilities are older since we were offered the room from the old wing. Therefore value for money is not that worth. It costs about 8000 Rs per night. But the same facility in Malaysia would cost only about 3500 Rs per night if you covert to local currency. The pool is not that clean. it wont attract any one. The breakfast menu is almost same every day morning. But has got many options to try. There is no room service at all. They requested 1000 Rs to deliver a plate to the room apart from the price of that plate. This is really poor service. If you coming after 10pm, no food at all. They are not ready to give you any food after 10pm. Apart from that no problem from the staff. But no special service also. If you use it as a transit hotel, then this is supper place due to its prime location.

A good mid class hotel”
As we didn't expect more comfort, the hotel was on the level we expected. Close to the main road, very noisy. Service was very good, especially in the restaurant. Rooms were ok, bathes needs to be rebuildt, not more state of the art. Restaurant Food was delicious, every time recommended.

This hotel is excellent. Excellent service, food, pool, cleanliness, and location to Dambulla Rock Temple, Sigiriya Rock, and Pollonoruva. Staff are extremely polite, helpful. Excellent breakfast buffet. I wish we could have stayed here longer.

Superb! Highly recommend !”
Staff is very accomodating, helpful and pleasant, Being a first time solo female traveller I felt very safe and comfortable at the hotel. The location is great. The decor is good too. Good place for families or for people who just want to relax. Needs a little bit of maintenance and repair work specially in the toilets. But I would still highly recommend it specially if you are on a budget

Good cheap stay”
Stayed here while visiting Sigiriya and Dambulla area. Good value for money. Bed not overly comfortable but what you'd expect for the price. Food was good. Pool nice but it rained while we were there unfortunately so didn't get to swim in it. Staff friendly.

pool, find food, coffee
It's a small number of rooms with a huge busy restaurant, professional staff and a great pool. My room 106 had an unpleasant odour and was pretty ordinary, clean. The hotel is expanding. Drainage needs attention.

Pleasant oasis in a dusty town”
Elegant decor with well-appointed rooms. Centrally located in town but managed to offer feel of being secluded. Good swimming pool
Really enjoyed our 2 night stay. There was little to dislike about the hotel. All aspects were above average for a place modestly calling itself 2* - it was miles better than some of the 4* hotels we visited in tourist resorts. Dinner was of good quality but the Sri Lankan breakfast was excellent. Excellent and underused pool adjacent to restaurant. Centrally located in an otherwise uninspiring town, hotel managed to create an ambience of being secluded. I would most certainly use this hotel again if visiting the Cultural Triangle.
