Deluxe Quadruple Room
Stayed 1 night in July 2017
Fantastic place”
For us was this by far the best place we stayed during our three weeks visit to SriLanka. The owners (brother and sister) were so friendly as it feeled like home. The brother cooked very well and toke us to the Perahera in Kataragama which was great. He makes the bezt egg fried rice we ever tasted. The sister is so kind and anticipated on each situation (free bikes, drinks for on the way etcetera) The also arrangend the safaris and gave drinks and breakfast for in the jeep. The location is nice too. Quiet and in five minutes you"re cycling between the ricefields. Next we visit Sri Lanka we will defenitly go back. Thank you!

Average place but a long way from the centre..”
Good: Like I say, the property is over 2 km from the centre of Tissa but they do provide free cycles that I used extensively to visit places of interest, On my first morning I opted for the Sri Lanka breakfast which was okay but then tried the European one the following day and it was streets better (see photos). The replacement room and bathroom were large and clean but the room was stuffy and uncomfortable even with the fan on. Bad: The staff are not very dynamic in any way at all, even the simplest request seems to throw them into confusion. That being said, when I arrived my room I was allocated was small, dingy and the bathroom stank but they moved me next day to a more comfortable room. They were very friendly until I told them I didn't want to go on their safari then they seemed to avoid me like the plague.

excellent stay with lovely people”
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the safari inn. We booked a room including the tour followed by another night in a different room. It was so lovely. The people there (we believe a family run business) were so friendly and accomodating. They really looked after you by even moving scented sticks to keep away mozzies or packing a breakfast to eat during the safari. Safari was also excellent with a superb and enthusiastic driver. They also arranged a taxi to take us to Ella which was also a good recommendation. Even leaving they made personal. Location was perfect in between trees and rice paddies a nice walk away from town. Would recommend this to anyone. A big thank you to La Safari Inn.

Friendly staffs, but very basic facilities and bed”
Stayed here for less than 8 hours as I arrive quite late (and was the only one checking in due to low season), and had to leave early for the safari. Had my dinner here as well as I felt that it is too dark and far to walk out to the town. The staffs are friendly and even packed my breakfast as I need to check out early in the morning at 5am. Kudos to them for waking up early to prepare my breakfast. Nothing to shout about on the room and facilities (it was quite old and squeaky but clean).

A nice little haven”
I stayed at La Safari Inn for two nights which was probably a night longer than necessary if you're just in town for Yala National Park but as I was unwell, I welcomed the extra night to recover in the comfort of an air-conditioned room. The accommodation was standard and the welcome drink was a nice touch. The staff were very friendly and extremely helpful in helping me book my safari. As a solo traveller, I especially appreciated being able to book a seat in jeep rather than having to pay for the entire jeep myself as I'd had to in other places. That was a great help. I also appreciated the packed breakfasts for both my early morning starts and assistance in planning my onward journey. There's not really anything within walking distance from the hotel but I wasn't up to that anyway so it wasn't an issue.

Close to Yala National Park and Matala Airport”
The owner offered a safari to Yala, but my interest was to sleep over night to take an early flight at Matala Airport. The owner prepared breakfast at 4am so we could catch our FlyDubai flight in time.

Standar AC room + Safari”
Good: Nice staff and always taken care of our need. Big room, confortable bed, hot water. Bad: room full of ants (they keep traveling with us in our backpacks...) and mosquitos, the AC doesn't work good (turns off and on every 5 minutes). Book a Safari of 7 hours with them, was OK but one of the "guides", the one that was suppose to find the animals, was more into taken his own pictures with his cellphone than looking for the animals.

one of the best places i've stayed in sri lanka”
easy to organise safari, really good food and friendly owners
the rooms are basic, but comfortable and clean. The owners volunteered to lend us their bikes for free when we told them we are going to the lake. Their set meal is fantastic and is a feast! Highly recommended!
