Hilary from United Kingdom
Luxury Room
Stayed 1 night in September 2016
Manager excellent and hotel fine for a night”
Within half an hour of Ude Walawe park, the hotel was fine for one night as a bade for safaris early next morning. The location of Embilipitiya offers very little to tourists and seems to have no decent places to eat. The hotel manager is ever so helpful and friendly so he takes most of the hotel score given. Rooms are clean and reasonably sized although fairly basic in decor. Outdoor pool clean and quite large enough.

Perfect place for the National Park!”
We had such a nice stay there. It was clean, rooms were okay, shower was working very well. Since it's getting hot we would take an AC room next time. Biggest plus is the pool, perfect after a long trip there. We booked a tour to the National Park Udawalawe at the hotel, they fixed everything for us, told us how to get the cheap tickets and everything. We could even shower again after the tour although it was past check-out time. The staff is the best/nicest we had during our time in Sri Lanka. So helpful... The manager is super nice, emailed me the bus schedule for our ongoing journey and told me to call him anytime if we had a problem in Sri Lanka in the future. THANK YOU!!! Best place to stay if you want to go to the National Park.

Super helpful staff!”
We cannot thank Tilly enough for his awesome service and help when we arrived at Pavana. He went out if his way to look after us, give advice and upgraded us to an air conditioned room. He personally escorted us into town ensuring we knew the way and pointed out the best places to eat. He then provided our driver with directions to get to our next destination. The pool was lovely and refreshing after a warm day and the gardens immaculate. In fact the whole town was super friendly and welcoming! The room although quite small was nicely furnished, the bathroom clean and hot water worked well. The bed was super comfortable and the breakfast excellent.

Best service in ASIA”
Service, service, service
Tilly, the hotel manager, had us on hello! We arrived late at night and had the safari booked for 5am the next morning. Tilly made our check in fast and uncomplicated and sent us quickly to the room so we could rest from the long trip. He was up and smiling before sunrise and gave us a nice basket of breakfast to have during the safari. Throughout our whole stay, he did everything to help us out and to make us feel welcome. Thanks, Tilly! You were the best! The hotel, as mentioned here before, is basic but very comfortable, clean and relaxed. The breakfast was delicious, with eggs, bread, fruits and local delicacies. The pool is big enough to rest and cool off at the end of the day. I highly recommend this place!

Better staff than 5* but rooms to be improved”
Staff manager national park
The stay was short as we went there only to visit Udawalawe National Park, Thilly ,who is the manager of this hostel, is completely your friend from the first second. He is helpful, supportive, ... Even he was our guide for the safari, he knows every place where you can find wildlife there. However the rooms are old, bathroom to be worked again and cleanliness is not high. The breakfast was healthy and varied, Thilly recommended us a place to have dinner which was also good and not expensive.

Great host, good value for money”
Friendliness and helpfulness of staff, organization of national park trip
We enjoyed being the only guests in the house being there off-season (May), thus also had the pool for us! We had excellent support from the staff and this way also learnt things about Sri Lanka we wouldn't have learnt otherwise. Whilst it takes half an hour to get to the Udawalawe National Park, it's still a good central location if you want some small town life around you and all national park affairs were well handled!
