Great staff let down by poor management”
Friendly, helpful staff. Fantastic food. Location & excursions.
The staff were fantastic- they couldn't do enough for us. The chef was supremely helpful in discussing every meal with us which was important because one member of the group cannot eat spicy food for health reasons, and another was in Sri Lanka for the first time and had the best possible introduction to the food which was fantastic. The trip to the national park which they organised was very good, and the travel information. Both locally, and for our onward journey was excellent. Unfortunately, they are let down by the owner who, even after some lengthy discussion, could not understand why we expected the list of facilities on the website to be available to us. For example, there was no TV in the room - important if you have a less able member in your group who wishes to spend ,ore time relaxing than admiring the elephants. Be warned that there is no hot water in the bathrooms and the seating area is actually the restaurant with only one chair in the bedroom. The wifi was fine in the restaurant but inadequate in the rooms. All in all we had a good stay here, but it is very much a place for the young and adventurous rather than those who like their creature comforts.

Friendly staff and great surroundings”
Staff, garden and WiFi
We stayed 2 nights at this hotel in Embilipitiya and really liked it! The owner, Handuwala, is super friendly and received us with a huge smile. He even gave us welcome drinks upon arrival. The hotel is surrounded by many fruit trees and tall palms, where you can sometimes see a monkey or two. There is also a river running behind the property. The room we got was spacious and clean, with a very large bathroom. There is a n¬¬¬et hanging above the bed to prevent the mosquitoes from bothering you at night. There was an excellent WiFi signal in the room (extra charge) and a good breakfast was included in our rate. We had dinner made by the hotel’s staff and it was very delicious and affordable. The staff is also very friendly, even though their English skills aren’t the best, but they are always smiling and trying to help. A couple of times they asked if we wanted “king coconut”, and then they would climb a palm tree to give it to us. We also got to try other local specialties. We didn’t arrange our Udawalawa safari trip through them because we had already made other plans, but they can also arrange it for you. The last day the owner gave us a warm farewell and even paid for our tuk-tuk to the bus station!

We stayed 1 night at the hotel whiteroyal. The room was very clean and big. The owner was extremely friendly and helpfull. The next morning he drove us with his tuktuk to the bus station and made sure that we got on the right one. Overall this hotel was good with friendly staff!

The best hotel experience I had in Sri Lanka”
Attentive staff, amazing food, ease of organizing logistics for excursions
Having spent two weeks in Sri Lanka at a variety of hotels (to include Galle Face in Colombo), I would rate this as my best hotel experience in the country. The staff was so generous and welcoming. They provided a laundry service for a small fee and complementary refreshments when we arrived. The food was hands down the BEST Sri Lankan food I had during my entire stay in the country, and it is very easy to organize safaris via the hotel. Highly recommended!

Horrorabzocke deluxe”
Schon bei der Ankunft war es anfangs problematisch das gebuchte 3bett zimmer zu bekommen, sie wollten uns aufteilen und noch ein zimmer extra verrechnen. Für den nächsten tag wurde ein safari trip vom hotel für uns organisiert, wo uns der besitzer erklärte dass noch 2 andere hotelgäste mitkommen würden. Während der safari erfuhren wir dass er zu unserer gruppe und der anderen (die aber im gleichen jeep mit uns fuhren) 2 verschiedene preise ausgehandelt hat und den jeweiligen anderen sagte dass wir gemeinsam fahren aber wir weniger als die anderen zahlen. Die endgültige abrechnung war schließlich das Sahnehäubchen. Sie verlangten für 3 portionen früchte eine unverschämte summe die anderen gäste erhielten ihr obst gratis. Und als wir unser gepäck aus dem zimmer holten bemerkten wir dass während unseres safaritrips unsere persönlichen sachen durchwühlt wurden. Bucht dieses hotel nicht, sie versuchen euch nur über den tisch zu ziehen wo es gerade geht.

Tyvärr så var hotellet ett tillhåll för locals.”
Hjälpsam personal trots att de inte kunde många ord engelska.
Man kan inte förvänta sig mer för 200kr per natt och rum
