        A place to make memories ”
        A gem hidden off the beaten track, surrounded by jungle but rising to a magnificent vista of mountains and the lake. A very warm family atmosphere with the restaurant, pool, communal and bar areas opening out to face the view. The food was superb. Each morning & evening a buffet of spectacular srilankan dishes as well as old favourites. The monkeys nearly came in our open window so keep them shut all day. Birdlife is abundant & a lone male elephant was spotted across the dam grazing in the afternoon. Located perfectly to see Sigiriya & polonnaruwa in one day with a swim between. As motorcyclists going around Sri Lanka Giritale Hotel was thoroughly refreshing. Loved it.

        Worst holiday experience at Giritale Hotel #DoNotGoThere”
        We booked a room to stay on 19th August through agoda.com by viewing their room conditions and photos. We booked a room with a balcony. When we checked-in to we realized that it was not with a balcony and just a narrow windowpane. So we complained to the front office and their answer was, if we need a balcony room then we have to mention it as a special remark when booking. When I asked, why do we need to mention it specifically when it is already there as a room feature and display in photos on the site? Since we were not satisfied with their answer they have directed us to their manager, and even he was not polite enough to accept their fault, instead, he put blame on #agoda and completely ignored our complaint. So without further wasting our time we decided to bear the situation without spoiling our weekend. And the best part happened NEXT…. next day Sunday morning, I was in the bathroom having a shower and heard a sound from the back and clearly saw someone peeping through window mesh. I quickly came out and there was a staff member outside the room. I scolded him but he rejected my complaint and also said there was no any other person in that area. But I’m 100% sure someone was there and I clearly saw him. Anyway, immediately I informed the manager but as before he just listened and no any action taken on that. Even no apologies…So this is the pathetic situation how our Sri Lankan hotels treat locals. This might happened the foreigners also. Mind you we were very disappointed with the experience and I would NOT recommend this hotel to anyone.

        My Birthday Splurge!”
        After 3 nights of low budget but great places, I needed to splurge for my birthday - the Giritale Hotel was just what the doctor ordered! I wanted a Pool, I got a beautiful pool with a view, I wanted a Beer, I got an ice cold Lion Lager with a view and a bonus elephant on the opposite shore of the lake! I wanted air conditioning and a mosquito free room for the night! I got an air conditioned mosquito free room for the night! The sunset was phenomenal over the lake and the morning sunrise on the mountains was pretty great too! The staff was attentive and helpful and my stay was exactly what I needed and expected!

        great location hotel but overrated and overpriced.”
        location, the view from the hotel and wild elephants on the road to the hotel
        the Hotel is pretty let down, the room was pretty let down. bed and furniture was old, mattress was worn out. the staff was very polite, but it wasn't worth the price for sure. if it was 50% of that, i would agree, but not that amount. additionally hotel wasn't able to provide taxi to airport with basic safety needs - seat belts. we definitely encourage everyone to book your taxi directly from official airport taxi - it will be much cheaper and safe as well, because the way how they drive there is not so safe. and if you take a bottle of water it will cost you about 30 times more than that you can buy on the street or in a shop..food was +/- ok.
