    A nice place to stay, but close to wild elephants so dangerous to travel to and from at night”
    We liked the room itself, but the staff weren't overly helpful and didn't warn us about the danger of wild elephants at night.

    Bad value for money”
    The staff is friendly and helpful but the facilities are badly maintained ( poor safety up in the trees, not enough rails, stairs damaged and trembling) and dirty ( old used bandaids found on the mosquito nets, mold and dirt in the bathroom). Kitchen is more than basic and so are the common areas. Very good for bad packers but absolutely not worth what we paid for it.

    Good if you enjoy off beat experiences once while”
    Recommended for those who like to experiment with slightly varied experiences in their stay. If your preference is set towards urban comfort look elsewhere.

    In the jungle”
    Jungle, tree house and food
    Really nice place, isolated in the jungle but at 20-30 minutes by foot (really nice walk on a path through the Jungle) far away from Lion's rock. Traditional food for dinner (Curry rice) and breakfast (hopper). The view from the tree house is amazing. The only weakness would be the decoration and the bath room, but everything was clean, with big towels available. We recommand.

    the thick forest”
    staff
    the owner set prices way to high. which is outrageous. it's a funny experience and the staff is wonderfull. can take you for a very inspiring walk around his village. and they cook very sri lanka food. but it's too expensive. the cottage is fine. but for this price you should expect sheets without holes and a mosquito net which is not realy dirty and full of holes.

    Dirty room but fabulous jungle setting”
    Waking to birds singing, tree house in the leaves, cool enough at night
    The stairs to our treehouse were very rickety, the room was dirty (gecko droppings), no wastebasket, and really super basic. Our room was also right by the trash area. But it was cool enough at night and there were astonishing bird songs in the morning. An elephant had come nearby during the night. The food was OK but not spicy, watered down for tourists. Hosts very friendly.
