        Nice room but no love”

        The room was a nice room and as a group of 4 we had booked 2 (twin beds in each). When we arrived we were told that monkeys had destroyed the AC, electrics, water and wifi for the second room next door and so we could only share a room with a couple sleeping in a single bed together, myself on a single bed and another person on the floor. Later than night we came to realise a family was now in the room next door (the one monkeys had trashed). Anyway, we chose to dine at the place... had to pre order by 4pm and dine at 8pm. The food was served cold. The next day we were given breakfast (noodles from the previous night). When we checked out we were then charged for the room we slept in and then we got an aidditonal charge (the second room but half price). After arguing this it was discounted. The place was a convenient overnight stop over however I would not recommend it as it was flawed with so many problems.

        Kataragama Safari Tour included sandwich was so good. But some extra costs were expensive. I recommend you to verify extra service's price before staying at the hotel.

        Staff, food and rooms

        We enjoyed our stay at this hotel. Staff was extremely friendly, courteous and attentive. Food was delicious. Rooms were very clean and comfortable. Good washrooms. Our 3 year old had lots of room to run around. Peacocks can be seen at the property. We would highly recommend this place to anyone ( Local or foreign).

        Comfortable room and good for a night ”

        Access to kataragama and yala and room facilities

        Room was reasonably well appointed and fine for a night, but the place was soulless, apart from very smiley and pleasant member of staff, the management was dour and was perhaps more accustomed to Local tastes, serving warm sickly sweet fruit juices, warm beer and the evening meal was poorest of stay in Sri Lanka so would suggest a new chef or eating out!

        Close to Yala nature park. Good customer service. Has natural surroundings.

        They are in the process of expanding therefore there's room for improvement especially where the outlook is concerned. Staff was very attentive. Rooms are clean and comfortable.

        Hotel not finished, horrible manager”

        Near Yala park

        Hotel construction not complete. Had to argue with manager to get an extra towel- he wanted to charge extra ! Breakfast was a small styrofoam box with one small banana and one slice of sandwich bread. Hotel is close to shrines, but you are better off staying in Tissa

        Brand new place”

        Room comfort, cleanliness, atmosphere

        One night stay to visit evening puja (the puja in November was really not much to experience, though the Sacred Precint was ok). The B&B is a short tuk-tuk drive out of town (200 rupees). It's walkable, but no street lights makes it a problem at night. This is a small place with three new bulidings, each with two rooms. The room we got was large, with a nice bathroom and good working AC. TV and wifi didn't work though. The dinner and breakfast was as expected. We didn't go to Yala, but I believe there must be better to stay closer to the national park if that is your primary reason for visiting.
