Amazing Hospitality”
Beautiful grounds & super well maintained & manicured. The owner/manager offers incredible service. He offered to help us book our safari (was actually cheaper than the one we had already pre-booked). He was also very attentive & even brought up plates & cutlery for our friend that stayed in when we brought back food for him. He also offered my hippie friend who didn't pack shoes, the literal shoes off his feet before we headed out on our safari. Highly recommend!

Excellent resort, great staff!”
Nilkheta is the perfect place to rest after the safari at Yala. The staff is very kind and friendly. We arrived late at night and they prepared for us a welcome drink and a great dinner. Rooms are large, comfortable and spotless. There is a nice garden with a mango tree (very tasty) and even a terrace.

Room was okay but service was awful”
We booked a room with complimentary breakfast however, the owner of the hotel (who also happened to be the check-in person), argued that there was no way that breakfast would be included in such a price. I showed him the Agoda voucher which clearly stated that breakfast was included in my booking, and he reluctantly accepted but still complained that meal shouldn't be included at this rate. In the end, we suggested him to deal with Agoda directly rather than putting the blame on his guests...

I went there with my finance for one night. It was more like a guest house than a hotel that the owner and staff was very welcoming. And offering really good price of safari of Yala park. Just without shower gel and hair dryer

Really nice place and good value. He is quite forward with his selling. However, I guess this is a main part of the business for most hotels in the area. BTW we were able to negotiate the price of the safari and make sure we had a private safari jeep rather than sharing.

Lovely looking hotel.”
This hotel is absolutely prefect once you enter its grounds with nice garden, big rooms and aircon. The staff really try and help out with any questions however their English is limited. Wifi is good and we really enjoyed the use of a hot shower which can be hard to come by in Sri Lanka. Location is the only thing that kind of let's it down, we felt like we were in the middle of nowhere with not many restaurants around. There was a restaurant on site however was closed due to low season. You can easily book different yala trips through the hotel from 5500rupees. Overall would recommend.

Good facilities but owner bothers”
The room is good, we stayed there for two nights. But the owner always tried to sell us something... Safari, umbrella, bike renting and etc. And the room was not cleaned on the second day. Plus we were not allowed to put our shoes out of the room. The location is somehow different from the map.

One of the best hotels I had stayed in Sri Lanka ever”
I'm a budget traveler but need comfortable stay. This hotel matches my needs perfectly. Although it's a little bit away from the city center, it didn't cost me more than 10mins. All of its facilities were new, it provided me a big room with very good functioning air-conditioner, heater and gave me perfect shower in Sri Lanka! Staff were very friendly and helpful. The owner was a good man, only I was frightened when he hugged and touched me so often and closely. (My girlfriend booked this for me, I'm a young man) *Thank you for the owner/staff reserving the Safari Tour for me.

Lovely host”
Great hotel with large rooms equipped with A/C. The host was very attentive - getting up at 4:30am to unlock the gate for our morning safari. We rented good quality bikes at a reasonable price, which was a great way to see the sights in Tissa. Good wifi also. Would highly recommend!

Nice place, needs to work on the welcome drink!”
Location, cleanliness and size of rooms
We enjoyed our stay at Nilketha and would recommend to other travellers on a bit of a budget staying in Thissa. However, a couple of points to mention: the welcome drink was incredibly salty - even our driver said it wasn't drinkable! The owner made a bit of a fuss of putting up our driver, even though we had agreed this with the hotel prior to travel. The kitchen was closed when we there, seemingly due to a party happening later that week, which meant we couldn't get dinner. Whilst this wasn't a big problem for us as we were happy to wander in to Thissa, we could have been advised of this in advance. Overall, this was an enjoyable stay though.

这个酒店离美丽的蒂萨湖步行大概五分钟。这里有个很大的院子,但你无法享受,因为蚊子实在太多。淋浴水还是很大,这个要表扬。经理是个老年人,很不错,晚上我们要热水泡面,他专门为我们烧,为此我奖励他一支烟。呵呵😄。老板抠门,第二天一早五点,我们去雅拉,老板要我付五份早餐钱,我告诉他四份早餐已在房费里,最终我们司机那份我买单了。有些酒店是赠送司机那份早餐的。

酒店在各方面都还行,想吃东西的话得等四十分钟。只不过老板可能是因为年纪大了,容易算错账,并总想从你身上赚钱。
