Hotel River Front is a great place to stay in Tissa! They are very welcoming and the curry is delicious. Thank you for making our stay and trip to Yala so great!

The staff were pleasant and rooms adequate, after a thunderstorm at night cut power they came with candles. Limited menu but food was good although slow.

We had a wonderful stay in this hotel as we got an upgrade for the tree house. It's beautiful right in the jungle. The hotel is run by a welcoming family and we enjoyed very much the hospitality of the staff members even though we stayed only one night.

We had a great stay at hotel river front. The owners are amazing and extremely helpful. They gave us a tour of the local area, arranged our safari, cooked great food and made us some lovely spice mango as an afternoon treat. Happily recommend.

        Clean room”
        Hotel is located at the end of the street and only food option would be prepared by the hotel. Be sure to confirm your booking if you book more than 1 room. When we reached the hotel at 8pm, we were informed that my 2 rooms booked were not available and they have a family room for me instead. This should have been informed earlier so that I can look for alternatives instead of asking me to check out the room and decide if I would want it at 8pm.

        This is a very good hotel. The room we stayed in had two queen size beds and was nearly perfect (size-wise) for our family of 5. The pool is great. The kids loved it! The food was pretty good too. We definitely recommend this hotel.

        Super-Clean Establishment”
        We booked a Family Suite for one night. We arrived at the property at 9 p.m. after our Jeep Safari at Yala National Park. The staff was patient and helpful in checking us into the hotel. What we first noticed was how clean the room was, even though the restaurant is undergoing extensive renovation. The sheets and towels were also neat and tidy. If I can be choosy, it is that the air-con in the room was not powerful enough due to the high ceiling of the room. However, we slept well as it wasn't hot nor stuffy. The breakfast next morning comprised of a sunny-side up egg with toasts, and fruits. The staff was attentive, and asked if we wanted some more toast after noticing that we have finished the first serving. For the price point, we had a enjoyable stay at Hotel River Front.

        Great place to stay for Yala safari”
        We stayed for 2 nights for a day safari in Yala arranged by the hotel. upon arrival the family were so welcoming and could not do enough for us. The room was clean and spacious with a view of the lovely garden and swimming pool. We had Sri Lankan curry for dinner cooked by mum which was lovely. The safari was great and we even saw the leopards. We would definately recommend this hotel

        The hotel is promoting sales by offering half board for the price paid. Quite unexpected.”
        Hotel is old, and there are a lot of places need renovating. However, staff`'s friendliness and value to money ratio make up the disadvantage. Hotel has excellent location.

        Short stay - okay”
        The hotel was busy, there were a lot of Chinese guests staying. Despite the business, the lady boss handled things pretty well. She seemed to have things under control. They ran a pretty efficient operation, they responded pretty quickly to the requests. The only thing I thought could be better was that they should provide a proper blanket. Overall, an okay experience.

        Spotless hotel. Rooms were very clean and grounds were just as tidy. Keep imaculate by the team there. Comfortable bed and nice shower. They sorted out a jeep for us for the safari for the next day very easy also. Staff very friendly. Food is ok, no actual restaurant, you order the food and they bring it up to a table by your door. Not a big problem though. Would stay here again.

        The hotel is great, although the hotel is not located in Tissa center, it's not really a concern to us as our purpose is to go to the Yala National Park only. This is a nice place for us to settle down, enjoy the food at the balcony, just sit there and relax before and after the tour. Staff are very attentive, and rooms are clean. We had our meals in the hotel, and haven't really been outside the hotel to explore the area.

        We did an overnight stop at the Hotel River front. Rooms were big and spacious. Unfortunately there was rat poo on the sheets. I would really not recommend eating here - they obviously cater for westerners and Sri Lankan food was not offered on the menu. Over priced as well. The location, room size and wifi however are very good!
