      Outstanding customer service, need more facilities to add ”

      -The room condition was not very good as mentioned in the web. Bathroom and balcony area was not cleaned properly. Typical Sri lankan meals not worth for price. -The staff support is the best thing. Specially Resturant staff exceptional good service. The balcony view superb. Naturally beautiful place. Good place to visit. Still price not worth for the facilities provided.

      Fantastic ”

      Pros: beautiful room (family suit) and the staff. I would just stay there because of that. They made you feel like home, even thou we only stayed for one night. Cons: No bar on property and don't buy sandwiches for takeout. They were good but too pricey. I did get a 25% discount and still paid Rs 825 for one sandwich. Witch I thought was ridiculously pricey for 3 slices of bread.

      A decent and comfortable place to stay in Kataragama ”

      This is situated in a convenient location to access the Kirivehera the most sacred place in kataragama. The swimming pool is maintained well but the access via the main reception is not ideal. The buffet in the restaurant had good choice. Check the mini bar on check-in as they tried to charge us for items which we did not use.

      Hotel with Spacious, Lake, Mountain view”

      We stayed at this hotel for one night. We were given the "Executive suite" which was very spacious and really enjoyed the balcony which was facing the lake and the Skanda Mountain. This Mountain view was more beautiful during the evenings. The buffet dinner and the breakfast were very nice too!. The staff were really friendly. Would love to go and stay here for a few days next time.

      Beautiful Lakeside Setting”

      Food, staff and location

      Stayed here for 2 nights whist doing a safari in Yala National Park. The location is very pleasant on the lakeside and the staff do let you know that sometimes they get an early morning visit from crocodiles in the garden!! Our room was very large with high ceilings and was clean and tidy with a nice balcony overlooking the lake and swimming pool. The restaurant has an excellent a la carte menu, with enough choice to suit all tastes and very reasonably priced. We were up at 4 am for our safari and they kindly supplied us with a pack-up breakfast which was adequate. Only downside for me is that there was no bar, but you could get a beer with the evening meal. Overall a very pleasant hotel with very friendly staff.
