        Good price hotel in Haputalle”

        Location for trip to Worlds End, clean, good value

        We stayed here 1 night, in Haputalle there are very few options for good quality clean accomodation, Olympus Plaza was good for 1 night as we had an early start to drive to Worlds End. Our room was decent and clean, with an OK bathroom and shower, i found the bed to be a bit uncomfortable - the mattress was too thin for me. Our room didnt seem to be heated and it was really cold the night we were there - i suggest requesting extra blankets if this happens when you are there. The hotel provided breakfast box for the trip to worlds end as we were leaving before breakfast started, there is a also a nice bakery attached to the side of the hotel. the centre of town is about a 15 minute walk away, carrying a torch is adviseable as the road is not well lit, or you also take a tuktuk. The staff were very friendly and helpful, but the wifi didnt work properly when we were there.

        Location, Value, friendly

        The views from this hotel were amazing.. The staff were efficient and friendly. The rooms were tastefully decorated & time had obviously been taken to meet high standards. A lack of restaurants in Haputale meant we ate at the hotel but the food was excellent. I booked the Olympus because it was near the railway station.

        Location, friendly staff and price.

        Situated on the side of a hill you certainly get interesting views of the surrounding Haputale. When we stayed at the Olympus Plaza there seemed to be lots of locals returning from Hindu new year festivities. The staff are friendly and always willing to please. Due to its rural setting not all the creature comforts are available.

        Friendly and efficient staff. Breathtaking views.

        All of the staff here were very friendly, and very professional and efficient. We had an early start at 5am to visit Lipton's seat and our wakeup call was right on time. They had a packed lunch ready for us as we were too early for breakfast. Haputale sits high above the surrounding hills and the view from our room was stunning. We had dinner there, and while I don't usually like buffet in the evening this was quite good. I couldn't fault this hotel in any way.

        Second stay at this hotel, probably one of the best hotels in this locality within this price range. Good hotel with friendly staff. If I had one complaint it was the beds in our room, the mattress was extremely hard similar to sleeping on a wood floor! Although I did not notice this on previous stay. The Manager did say this was getting fixed soon. Restsurant food order was wrong to what was ordered and restaurant service terribly slow this time.

        1. Food, 2. Staff performance, 3. Price

        We were reluctant to book the hotel for its classification as a 2 star one and comparisions with outher 2 stars hotels we experienced travelling to various countries in the world. There are not many options, so we went for it unconvienced. What a great pleasant surprise it was since the first moments at the hotel: friendly check-in and help with the luggage (remember it is a 2 star hotel), impeccable service at the restaurant with superb local quisine and professionalism (of at least 4 star hotel!!). Our room was spacious and very clean. The challange we faced was with wi-fi that was working well only on one of the top floors, where the playing zone for kids is organized. We would strongly recommend.

I was also happy with the Hotel staff, particularly the reception, who were very helpful and friendly, part. the daytime lady receptionist. I however wish the restaurant manager in the Hotel was more friendly and would spare a smile every once in a while or even a remark! He remained stony faced throughout our stay!!! But the rest of the restaurant staff, from the Head Chef to the waiters, were nice. I was not happy about the following: first, we ate the first night at the Glace Restaurant and two of us suffered a mild case of food poisoning which inconvenienced us no end as we were visiting areas with no restroom facilities for emergency visits! Second, one of the rooms had a leaky bidet shower and though we reported it to the Manager nothing was done till we left. It was not much fun to use the bidet shower knowing it would leak and flood the bathroom floor every time you did so.

        Loke every time. The staffs are very friendly. But the service is a no go. Cleaness in Restaurant is a no go. Nobody change the table cloths between dinner and breakfast. Staffs have no reaching about guest handling and job. The running fact, but no system by work. You can't take a coffee alone or like that from buffet. You think, you are in prison. Must ask about each small things separate. In the rooms the items for guests not refilled. And the new bad thing, I bring my guests as guide many times in thishouse. But I have only the solution to book about Agoda. Before driver every time got a quarter. Now not more. That's a no go. How can bring the guests without driver? Totake money from them iit's not good. And not for this price. Me too can't get a staff quarter. I have to pay for guestroom or must search outside a quarter. The hotel only looking guests and money. But no offer for the people which bring them the guests. And and and. The list is not finish. But the problem us, that you have no other solution at Haputale to find another hotel or good guesthouse for an acceptable price.
