Worst "hotel" I have ever stayed in.
It was not on the street where the address is. The lobby is swarming with mosquitos with the doors all wide open, no mosquito coils or zappers. We asked the manager if there was a place nearby for our driver to stay and she rudely said it was not their problem. The room was tiny. The bathroom had a louver window with no screen so the mosquitos could get in. The phone in the room had no power cord or phone line going into it. The TV could not get any signal. The air conditioner was not working and made constant noise like there was a wind storm outside, and it dripped outside constantly. We had their buffet dinner on the first night - the food was mediocre for 900 rupees each. The included breakfast was also mediocre, and we made sure to be gone all day. When we got back to the "Palace" I told the manager I wanted to pay for the previous night's dinner (so we could check out quickly the next day). She said she would have to confirm it with her husband. I showed here the Agoda voucher that said our room was already paid in full, but she still insisted that she had to check with her husband before I could pay the dinner bill. I came back in half an hour, but she still had not managed to reach him by phone, wherever he was, and said she needed another half hour. I came back in half an hour and she still had not reached him. In the morning before we pulled out of the driveway, they asked us to wait while they checked the room, presumably to make sure we had not stolen anything. We then got their approval to leave. One of the "Palace" employees" told our driver in the morning that the husband and wife who run the hotel had not paid their rent to the doctor owner of the building in two months, so the place will probably be shut down before anyone else has the misfortune of staying there.

Fantastic family run guest house
Friendly attentive staff, clean comfortable rooms, great location
This small hotel is managed by a lovely couple who go out of their way to make their guests feel welcome and comfortable. We had booked for 4 nights but extended our stay for another 2 nights because it was so relaxing. The hotel garden overlooks a beautiful lake and it was great to have this wonderful view while enjoying the cool breeze and a cold beer. The room was very clean, with a comfortable bed and quality linen. The included breakfast was the usual fruit, toast, and eggs cooked to order. The extensive lunch and dinner menu includes Ceylonese and International choices. There is also a buffet. We ate all our meals here and enjoyed every one. The service was very attentive and the manager and his wife were both very helpful.

Schönes Hotel am See
Essen, super freundliches Personal, schöne Aussenanlage
Wir haben von hier aus die alten Stätten erkundet. Haben uns im Hotel ein Fahrrad geliehen und waren damit auf Tour. Das Hotel wird sehr liebevoll geführt, der Gast ist König!

Отель у озера
Обслуживание. Сам отель. Расположение на берегу озера.
Отличный новый отель. Все номера идеально чистые. Вид из номеров на озеро восхитительный. Персонал очень дружелюбный. Хозяин немного говорит на русском. Завтраки огромные и вкусные. Заказывали велосипеды для осмотра достопримечательностей прямо в отеле. Единственный минус - далеко от центра города и достопримечательностей.

Прекрасный вид
Качество номера, окружающая территория, персонал
Отель новый, соответственно все новое и чистое. Отель находится на беругу озера. Вечером очень приятно посидеть на веранде. С другой стороны озера поют будь факте монахи, завораживает. Завтраки очень большие и вкусные, это было первым местом, где нас не кормили яйцами. Каждый день были разнае блюда из национальной кухни. Найти отель самостоятельно было немного затруднитедьно, но большую проблему не составило. Очень рекомендую данный отель.

值得推薦的河畔景觀民宿
民宿一家人友善、房間舒適乾淨、湖畔景很棒
位置有點小偏,地點部分如果用google map來找會不太好找,初次到訪可能需要問當地人才能找到確切位置;民宿附近覓食比較不方便,晚餐民宿有提供付費自助吃到飽可供選擇,但沒選擇在民宿用餐無法評論餐點;早餐是自助式可吃到飽,主要有烤麵包水果牛奶熱咖啡熱紅茶,早上能悠閒地坐在戶外湖畔邊用早餐很不錯,湖景很棒;房間乾淨舒適,有熱水,民宿員工一家人友善,整體性價比還可以
