Great choice from which to explore the area”
The Hotel Lake Park was one of our nicest hotel experiences in Sri Lanka. Clean, good kitchen, engaging staff and a front row seat on the wild nature of the area. Being literally on the lakeside, wild birds were in abundance and elephants in the distance came closer at dusk. On a few occasions we studied each other from only a few meters away, across the fence. This is an unusually good place to stay for a few days.

Shady, overpriced, a ripoff!”
Overpriced and very shady! Owner said he did not have accomodation for my driver after I received a confirmation email 1 month prior. I had to show him the email and he said it was someone else who sent me the communication although it had his name in the signature. The place was clearly not at full capacity with only 20% of the rooms full. Not good. To top it off, we ordered 6 beers from the bar to cool our tempers and when we received the bill the next morning, he charged us a whopping 900 rupees. That is 3x the amount we paid in other resorts/hotels in Sri Lanka. Since we checked out at 5:30am in the morning, the owner was no where to be found so I could not contest the bill. The rice and curry dinner my wife and I had was average and it was 900 rupees per person. Overpriced again. Do not stay here unless you want to pay thru the roof.

Fantastic Location”
This hotel is one of the few in the area that is away from the main road and right on the lake in a peaceful, beautiful location. The bird-life is excellent (especially Robbie the pet Brahminy Kite) and we even saw a distant elephant. It's about 3 k into town but lots of shops and restaurants are closer. Rooms are spacious with A/C but otherwise basic. Breakfast is good, as are evening meals, if limited. We encouraged the owner to consider stocking beer. You may wish to avoid weekends, esp during the August school holidays, when local family groups and wedding parties can favour this hotel due to its stunning location.

Spent two nights in Hotel Lake Park, based on Agoda reviews. Charming staff - nothing was too much trouble. We had a lovely time and would happily stay here again.

Fantastic stay ”
Views, staff, grounds
It was my birthday whilst I was here, they treated me to a beautiful birthday meal for all 4 of us. The views when you wake up are wonderful and the birds will keep you amazed whilst you enjoy breakfast. This hotel is great value for money, ac is great and the bathrooms are modern and clean.

Service, view, swimming pool
After a day of temples, nothing brings the children more joy than swimming in the pool, while watching wild elephants in the distance. Staff was so friendly and tried in everything to make our stay agreeable.

Disappointment at first sight”
Lake Front,
We selected this hotel based on the features given in the website. When we reached the place around 6pm the there was no one to receive us. The place was isolated. The 24 hour front desk? The only clue that we were at the right place was the name board that carried "Hotel Lake Park" we had to wait for about five minutes to find any life there when a young boy appeared from nowhere. A sudden down pour of rain made things worse when we had no place to wait as the entire roof of the "Reception" "Restaurent" was leaking. We were completely wet by the time we got to the rooms. The only consatoon was the rooms which were reasonably alright with hot water AC and good Fittings. The owner arrived later and attended to our requests. The staff was clueless and appeared to have had no training. We didn't bother to look for the Sauna and other facilities stated in the web. The other disadvantage is the place is isolated from the hotels and the activity. May be its good if one wants a hide away. We could have stayed at a much better place in the area, for two thirds of the price we paid.
