              Much to improve”
              I have stayed at Mandara several times. The room and bathroom are very spacious and quite well furnished. The mattress must be replaced as it is too old. I was out at 8 am and returned to room around 6 pm. Our two rooms were not cleaned! Such simple things should not happen at a hotel that charges over $100. Breakfast buffet is quite ok but cleanliness of cutlery is an issue. It was very clear that glasses, forks, spoon and knives were poorly washed with visible stains. The quality of food is ok. Staff need better training and should understand that customer satisfaction is a top priority. Asked for an iron and it never arrived. They are nice people and often busy with chit chatting and guests have to wait for no reason. Overall, this is a hotel with good infrastructure and lot of simple things can be done to improve guest satisfaction.

              This used to be our go to Hotel continuously for more than decade every year for our annual Kataragama pilgrimage and we usually book 5-6 rooms every time. However in past few years the hotel has been completely run down beyond any standards, both food and cleanliness. Bathrooms mostly our completely unacceptable even for cheap budget standards. Owners are tying to gain more money without ever taking care of the hotel and there weren’t any renovations done recently. TV is an very old satellite system and not clear, Wi-Fi is weak, towels are dirty, walls are dirty, bathroom fittings are broken, bathroom has no exhaust fan and it stinks, breakfast and dinner are not taste the morning mixed fruit juice was spoilt, there is no filtered drinking water for free while having meals, have to purchase small water bottles or they just give normal tap water.

              Good hotel close to temples”
              Good hotel near Kataragama with all required facilities and a pool with underwater music. Close proximity to the temple. Rooms are spacious and clean. The only negative point is the safari services arranged by the hotel. I would recommend the hotel 100%, but not it's safari services. The safari guy charged us unnecessarily even though he rejected the necessity of a guider although we have asked for a guider service. But he charged us for that service. Since I have been to Yala many times, I knew the surrounding, our driver took us in small routes and finally ended up after seeing few elephants. The negative point was, he was late to start the safari, he refused to have a guide, he didn't provide the receipt until I gave cash, he charged for guider service although hardly explained anything to us. hotel is recommended as it's my third stay there. But never use the safari service provide by hotels. Better to source something on your own by travelling to Yala. Do not reply on the hotel for Sarafi service.

              We've been staying here since the time it opened. Staff has always been very helpful and food quality has been consistently high. Over the years the property itself has gone through its phases and shows signs of ageing. On the positive side, when inquired I was told that the management has initiated a refurbishment program. Its certainly on the high side in terms of cost. But it is good value for money and fingers cross the management will see through the refurbishment,

              room was pretty nice
              We had a bad experience at this hotel. It is not good value for money. We accidentally booked a single room on Agoda for two people, and when we arrived at the hotel, the staff rather than being understanding, blamed us and tried to charge a double supplement plus the commission that had been charged by Agoda, effectively requiring to us to pay this money twice. The staff and management handled this situation extremely poorly and we had to spend at least two hours debating this issue with various staff members and managers. Moreover, the AC in our room didn't work well, the floor was wet in our room when we arrived and there was a cockroach in the bathroom in the morning. There was no apology for this when we raised it with hotel staff. The mandatory breakfast was not very good. This hotel claims to be 5* but it is not. The building itself is nice, but the rooms are a bit shabby and the restaurant and service are certainly not 5* calliber.
