This was a great opportunity to choose a point of view for the family before crowds have come. Hotel services were also good. IMHO the best option to enjoy elephants.

Right next to river. Great thing is they bring elephants down early in morning before tourist buses arrive. Got to spend time with elephants & take loads of photos by myself & gave the local guys a tip for it. Was awesome.

The hotel is located on the river exactly where the elephants from Pinnawella Orphanage take their bath. Excellent view from restaurant and balconies. The main entrance to the Orphanage is only 200 m away. Everything was to our liking with this hotel.
Michael from Finland
Family with young children
Great setting and helpful and welcoming staff. The Hotel is perched right above the river where the elephants come daily to bath. You can also see thousands of fruit bats fly over the river at dusk, for your dining table on the terrace.

Can watch the elephants twice a day when they pass going to the river. Can watch elephants bathing from resto and balcony. Can watch earlier the old and sick elephants. The view of the river at all times is superb. Can walk in the stones when not bathing time.

Perfect location for a few days with fantastic view and service!”
Every morning the elephants go bathing - so book a room with river view for only a few Euro/ Dollar more. The Service is very kindly and helpful. Rooms a very clean, cozy and comfortable but not extraordinary. The kitchen prepared good food from several regions of the world. Ask for Sri Lankan breakfast the evening before. Thanks for a beautiful stay!

Memorable Stay”
Comfortable beds, cleanliness and location
Excellent location to watch bathing elephants. Courteous staff. Stayed in a river view room. Enjoyed the soothing sound of Maha Oya flowing on the granites throuout the night. If pop up come to upgrade, please do not accept. If clicked, your bookings will actually downgraded for an additional $12 to a garden view room. Careful to select the river view rooms. I am lucky that for an additional $10, my downgraded room was upgraded to a river view room. Thanks for the manager and receptionist both are extremely helpful. Missed the Sri Lankan traditional hopper breakfast that should be booked 12 hrs in advance. Nevertheless staff gave me a rice and fish curry breakfast, that was bloody good. Western breakfast is pretty ordinary. Staff are helpful and made my stay comfortable. Rather than paying $20/person entrance fee to the elephant sanctuary, visitors could get all the excitements in watching the elephants from the hotel. Nothing much to see inside the sanctuary anyway. Major attraction is elephant bath at the river.
