Very good”
Its an excellent budget hotel facility with an obliging and extremely friendly management staff. The site needs updating and improving. Facilities could be better. The staff was very receptive to suggestions. Extremely good value for money.

Excellent staff.”
We were made to feel very welcome even though we arrived very early. A very quiet location made for a very relaxing couple of days in our comfortable double room. The staff were very helpful with information regarding onward travel and safari options. After a little research we decided to do a full day safari organised through the resort. It was a little expensive but worth it. Our driver/guide was very knowledgeable, pointing out many types of birds, spotting crocodiles and of course elephants. He prepared a great breakfast and lunch inside the national park too. The breakfast and dinner at the resort were super tasty too. Drinking water is free and when we left Mr Happy gave us lots of fruit for our bus journey. If I stayed in Udawalawe again I would definitely stay here.

Beautiful staff ”
Stayed here as it is super close to the National Park & that was my main purpose for the trip. The staff were amazing - mango juice on arrival, helped me book my tour, very friendly and organised my lunch for me. Unfortunately the bathroom really needs some loving. It is so dirty & taps etc need fixed. No hot water isn't a huge deal but it really needs scrubbed down. I'm not sure if there is that many flies in other places in the area but it really bothered me having so many on my food. They need to sort some kind of way to keep their food covered so ensure the contact is limited. I never saw a menu to order food which would be helpful, luckily I'm happy to go with whatever, but this doesn't suit all guests. Flies & bathroom aside, the staff were the highlight of this stay- very kind & friendly and i felt very safe staying here.

Welcoming and friendly hosts”
This is basic but comfortable accommodation. We stayed in a non-air conditioned room with a large fan, which was ok but would definitely recommend an a/c room in the future as the Windows are not able to be secured nor do they have fly wire. Bed nets were provided and in good repair. The hosts were very friendly and welcoming, and excellent cooks. They will assist in any way. We enjoyed a tasty and generously portioned dinner and breakfast for a very reasonable price. Happy elephant is about 15 mins away from Udawalawe National Park entrance, so it is well located. No pool or children's play ground at the time of our visit.
