        Super hotel with amazing pool ! ”

        We stayed there for 2 nights while doing a safari in tissamaharama! Hotel is exactly as in the pictures and staff is super nice! Prices for safari are reasonable in the hotel but taxi prices they offered are crazy (better ask on the street). Pool area is super to relax after the morning safari ! We decently recommend the hotel.

        Nice hotel with great pool to relax after a long safari. Hotel offers great value for the money compared to a lot of other places in Sri Lanka. Staff is nice and helpful. Breakfast was good. Average but ok food in the restaurant though it is a little pricey (Lack of alternative restaurants in walking distance). You should check with other safari operators for Yala Safaris as the price by the hotel seems to be a little high.

        Chances are, if you are going to Tissa is to visit Yala National Park.. In which case this hotel is fine. It is not the most luxurious hotel I have seen in Sri Lanka, but it is good enough. The rooms are big, clean & the pool is fantastic! The staff was nice enough to help us confirm our tour in Yala National Park.

        The hotel is in a great location. The staff were very willing to help with any problems and booked our safari at a very good price. There was a bit of a tendency to push guests towards the buffet which didn't represent fantastic value. The food from the menu however was excellent value and fantastic.

        Tucked away in a small town this is a lovely hotel to come back to after a hot safari in Yala. The manager even offered to extend the pool opening time for us as he said we would need a cool off when we got back. Fantastic pool and great pool staff. Good size rooms and nice and clean. Buffet food was good value and they offered a very tasty variety. Its a shame we had not booked to stay here longer than one night.

        We stayed four nights in a room with balcony. The room was big and comfortable as was the bathroom. The rooms were cleaned everyday. The pool is great - nice and big with lots of chairs for sunbathing and relaxing. We also liked the food we had from the menu....we aren’t into buffet dinners so were didn’t have the evening buffet but the chilli chicken from the menu was great!

        Great place to stay. Pool was wonderful after the safari.”

        Great hotel, very helpful and friendly staff. We didn't book breakfast based on others reviews and because we had a safari breakfast planned. However for the second morning we decided to try it and thought it was great. It cost $7 per person, there was a Buffett with eggs and omelett made to order. There were also sausages, string hoppers, curry, samosas, chicken nugget type bites, fruit, toast and jam, juice and tea and coffee. I would definitely recommend this hotel but be aware they add on extra taxes to the advertised prices. This includes 15% city tax and a further 2% tax so not just the standard 10% service charges. Our stay still felt good value and we would recommend it.

        I made this booking for my in-laws who were very happy about the level of service provided by the hotel. Thanks to Mr. Arun and Shirley for being flexible with the chosen meal plan. The hotel was very helpful in organizing a safari jeep as well. The only thing that i would like to comment is that the Wifi had been very poor hence the 4-star not 5 for the facilities. But everything else was exceptional. Thank you..

        2 years old hotel, modern and well planned out. Pool was great, and on your doorstep. Veranda was great to sit out on and relax in the morning. Room was ok, lighting was a bit dull, a sofa/sitting area instead of extra single bed would be preferred. a 10 min walk to restaurants along the main road but not too many other amenities in the area. Friendly staff, overall a good experience.
