Room wasn't secure Room wasn't very clean and the locks on doors and windows were very dodgy. They even suggest not to leave valuables in the rooms. No power point in our room and you could only use power points in common area where the wifi is also located. Food was not great and there wasn't any restaurants nearby to easily get to. Half the staff were lovely the others stared a lot at me (a woman) and made us feel uncomfortable and like we were being watched on our every move.

Pool, nice staffEnjoyed my stay very much. Hotel Jeep safari driver Manjula was very good i thought, had a awesome afternoon. Fridays they have a buffet and locals come with a DJ, open fire outside dancing and lots of fun. Room was a bit dated and basic no wi fi there or tv. pool was nice.

Great foodOur room was dirty, staff had to come to clean the bathroom and change the sheets before we would accept the room. The furnishings were very old and badly maintained. Good points were the swimming pool and the fantastic food - the most amazing breakfast and great dinners. Friendly and helpful staff. A 30 minute brisk walk to the nearest settlement and really nowhere else to eat.

The location, the pool and the peace and quiet

We had a good stay. The place is very comfortable and we used the pool most day. We highly recommend taking a morning safari tour! It was fantastic.

Mauvaise experience”

Emplacement

Hotel bien placé. Chambre bouillante, du genre 30 degrés dedans la nuit, avec un ventilo indispensable (car pas d'air conditionné) Salle de bain salle, on ne s'y sent pas à l'aise du tout. Literie tres moyenne, avec taches sur les draps. Une seule lampe de chevet. Un autre point positif à part l'emplacement : le bus pour Matara passe devant l'Hotel, à Matara prendre un autre bus si besoin direction Galle, si vous voulez vous arreter à Unawatuna.

Le confort des chambres à améliorer”

Cuisine délicieuse, personnel sympathique, piscine

L'accueil est très sympathique, la cuisine est délicieuse. Très sympa d'avoir une piscine même s'il faudrait enlever plus régulièrement les feuilles tombées dedans. Le gros points noirs sont les chambres : Literie abominable, salle de bain insalubre, décoration vieillotte ... Il faudrait également couper les branches des arbres qui permettent aux singes de cavaler sur les toits ...

Modernisierung notwendig!”

service

Das Hotel ist ziemlich in die Jahre gekommen, alles ist sehr abgegriffen, die Zimmer dunkel und modrig. Die Safari Touren des Hotels sind um ein Drittel teurer als der normale Preis und werden eher unmotiviert angeboten. Das Personal war sehr bemüht und freundlich-das beste an dem Hotel!

Piacevole”

Posizione, ambiente, dimensioni camera

La camera era grande e piuttosto pulita, così come il bagno. È in ottima posizione per un eventuale safari, ma un po' fuori mano per tutto il resto. Per andare in paese è necessario prendere un mezzo. Un pochino caro per quello che offre, ma ci tornerei sicuramente

отель для тех, кто приехал на сафари”

бассейн, ресторан, расположение

Отель для тех, кто прибыл на сафари и ищет место - перекантоваться пару ночей. Будет очень хорош, кк транзитный пункт в путеществии из Канди на побережье например. Плюсы: расположен рядом с нацпарком - пару минут на машине, домики расположены в саду, что дает тень и прохладу днем и ощущение турбазы ночью. в отеле есть бассейн - чистый, с комфортной водой - это очень важно после поездки по парку. Также в номерах горячая вода - не еле теплая, как во многих гостиницах, а нормально горячая. Нормальный ресторан - быстро и вкусно готовят все, что есть в меню, но цены высоковаты. минусы - расположение в саду приводит к обилию москитов, а москитные сетки меньше кроватей. так что лучше запастись фумигаторами, мазями или спреями на ночь. также домики уже потрепанные, видно, что не особо их ремонтировали со времени постройки отеля - это создает тяжелый воздух в номере с зарытыми окнами. А открыть окна не позволяют комары))
