      Large and clean family room”

      Large family room which is new and clean. My kids loved the space. It's minutes from the temple. After a bit of persuasion (which the owner must take note of), they served some excellent room service. The breakfast was very delicious and authentic. They even have a kid-friendly restaurant. I loved it. Friendly staff and security. It's a hidden gem and will visit again next time.

      Simply Grim”

      It's dark, it's damp, it's dingy. I was the only person in the place,I got a large room with a feature damp patch on bedroom side of bathroom wall. There was no kettle, with all lights on I couldn't read. My garden view room looked on to a parked lorry on the road via a balcony with a rotting handrail. There was a pool filled with a dubious cloudy water and covered in leaves etc. The staff and manager were clueless. Don't go here, in fact don't stay in Kataragama at all, it's a hole. The Temples are interesting but its only half an hour from Tissa. Kataragama is a pilgrim town, and caters for that market. This hotel will serve that market, but probably won't suit you.

      Can't complain. Thoroughly enjoyed the stay. You could visit Kiri Vehera, Kataragama Hindu Temple, Situlpavva from here. Hotel arranges a Yala safari, which is reasonably priced. Ransu the driver was pretty helpful. A little more training and he could be an awesome guide/tracker for Yala visits. You could also do a night safari on Kataragama Buttala road, where you are almost guaranteed of seeing elephants on a highway. If you are lucky enough seeing a leopard and/or sloth bear is not out of the question. Please do NOT speed on this road as it could risk the lives of innocent wildlife
