    A very pleasant stay thanks to the extraordinary team at Raintree Hotel”

    When we arrived in Rain Tree Hotel exhausted and tired from a day trip , Upali (the owner) and his team welcomed my niece and me in the nicest way possible. The room had beautiful teak furniture and was always impeccably clean. We also enjoyed a very good breakfast and dinner at the hotel. The restaurant manager Priyantha was very obliging and just as dedicated as everyone else in the hotel to making our stay worthwhile. A big thanks again to Upali for his help . We can highly recommend this beautifully located hotel (especially if you want to go to Yala National Park).

    Wish we stayed longer! ”

    We stayed at the Rain Tree hotel for one night so that we could do a safari at Yala National Park but we wished we stayed longer! We were lucky enough to meet the owner who was friendly and hospitable. He spoke proudly about Sri Lanka and offered to show us around his farm where he grows lots of interesting produce. We ended up learning a lot about different traditional Sri Lankan dishes and then enjoyed these all at the evening buffet. If you’re looking for a place in Tissa, this is the perfect option. And don’t miss the evening buffet for an authentic Sri Lankan experience!

    Disgusting ”

    This was the worst hotel. it is suppose to be 4 stars i would not even give it a 2. bathroom used before we checked in; random towels everywhere and a gray colored towel from all the dirt on the floor, random furniture everywhere. there was human hair on the floor. garbage not cleaned, no hot water, no soap you have to request it. bathroom door doesnt work the doorknob is broken. i wish i can attach pictures and nothing was done to satisfy me not through agoda or the hotel. also, the staff are not all clean .. we came with a driver and he complained that he didnt have water to shower.. EVERYTHING is false advertisement .. i wouldnt even give them 1 star review but i have to, so i am able to post this. and i have pictures of the property and pool .. disgusting is not enough to explain what i saw.. FALSE ADVERTISEMENT and the review they got.. i'm pretty sure it was from there own staff. no one with their right mind would give them above 2 stars

    From the first greeting to the time we left service and staff was exceptional. Rooms and bathrooms were clean and well presented. There were good spread of local and ovèrseas dishes on offer and it was quite nice. There is beutiful view of the country side and lakes from the rooftop. I took my in laws with me on this trip and they were quite impressed with Rain Tree as well phew...... Special thanks to Charith at the front desk for exceptional service.

    Beautiful and confortable hotel, very clean. The Staff is really nice. You can't miss the terrace !”

    This was a nice place to stay. Clean, in a convenient place near the lakes. Beautiful walks around to enjoy the rice plantations. You can't miss in the sunset the view from the terrace: the birds going to sleep on top of the rain trees of the lake, and the flying foxes waking up and starting to fly, thousand of them. That was fantastic. We had one day the visit to the Yala Natural Park very early in the morning and in the hotel they prepare for you a breakfast bag to take with you. Food was very good, the chef was there at night for dinner to explain all the dishes. Very lovely. I would totally recommend to stay there, and I'm looking forward to come back and enjoy the time in that beautiful area.

    Great Modern Hotel near Tissa Lake”

    Of the many hotels we stayed in Sri Lanka, I want to say this is the BEST among its peers. We stayed at its family room, which was essentially one triple room and one double room interconnected and sharing a common balcony. (Although we failed to open that connecting door..) The rooms were spacious and well-equipped. The hotel has a swimming pool (surprise) and a bat-watching terrace (although we didn't have the chance to try that out). Unfortunately, we found more ants and bugs in the room than we expected (which seemed to be the norm for every other hotel in Sri Lanka), and we experienced several power-resets in the evening before we go to bed (which meant we needed to turn on the air-con once again). These were the only two shortcomings we found during our stay. Since it's located near Tissa Lake, it wasn't close to shops and restaurants (a 200Rs Tuk Tuk ride away). But I don't think there were such modern hotels in downtown Tissa. So overall, this was a great hotel by Tissa lake, and I would definitely recomment it to my friends on their visit to Sri Lanka.

    Horrible experience with money wasted”

    Definitely worst experience in Sri Lanka. When we got there the receptionist lady was cold face (unlike any other hotel in this country!!!) and very inefficient. The room was big however the facilities were disappointing. Hot water not available most of times and power was cut off in the mid of night so no A/C working!!! Too hot to sleep tight!!! And the room was just next to the road so extremely noisy all night!!! Worst is when we checked out the receptionist lady (still very cold face) showed me the wrong order forcing me to pay extra money! And the whole staff were reluctant and incapable to correct the mistake until another guest showed up and convinced them. Still 1 hour of my time was wasted in waiting and reasoning with stubborn staff especially the lady (while later I was told the boss was sitting next door watching his staff treating a guest so rudely and doing nothing!!!) In a word it is a hotel far below this country's hospitality standard with very unreasonable price!!!

    设施有点老,但是挡不住服务员的热情。这里的服务非常的好。老板也非常热情。我到的时候已经是晚上,可惜酒店只提供自助餐,但是老板热情的提供的特别的烹饪服务,可以按照你们需求烧菜。另外还送了我女儿非常好吃的冰淇淋。服务员有求必应。虽然地方有点偏僻。但是有个好处,你可以在傍晚酒店边上大概200米的地方,看到一群飞狐。另外酒店顶上有个观景平台。周边景色可以一览无余。

    非常热情洋溢着欢乐的酒店,观鸟平台是一大亮点。”

    距离亚拉国家公园不远,tissa湖旁边。虽然环境和位置不算繁华,不包车可能交通不大方便。但是这里从大堂经理到大厨到行李员,个个热情洋溢善解人意。彬彬有礼的同时又特别善解人意,关注道每个客人的不同需求。弥补了硬件上的不足。观景平台可以看到对面湖上的鸟类栖息大树。夕阳西下,成群鸟儿掠过水面,飞回大树上休息,场面非常壮观。房间商务酒店标准,干净是干净点。但是大床是两个双床拼的着有待改善。另外只有床单。
