Good location. Near the Katharagama main religious shrine and temple which was the reason for our visit. Only stayed there for one night. Food was superb. Hotel room was specious but the bathroom needed a bit more up keep. Management also should look at providing WiFi throughout the hotel which I believe is a must these days.

Nice stay and a good hotel. Food was good and the rooms were specious. Well maintained. Closer to the temple. Swimming pool was good. Relaxing place. Enjoyed the dinner. Friendly staff. There are so many new hotels coming up in Katharagama but I still like this one.

This is, in my opinion, a really beautiful hotel. I travelled around Sri Lanka for two weeks, as part of an organised group tour (so I didn't pick the hotels), and I felt that from an aesthetic perspective this was the best hotel we stayed in. The pool area is almost picture post-card perfect, with a quaint little bridge, large...

Had a nice stay.The meals were delicious and attractive, specially the dinner. There were various types of food. The rooms were well maintained and very clean. The special thing about this is the underwater music in the pool. There was a attentive staff.

A fabulous holiday. Really enjoyed our stay. The rooms were very spacious and clean. Perfectly spaced. Pools were well maintained. General staff was very humble and courteous. It was really thoughtful of them to even get breakfast packed for us during our Yala safari. The Manager helped us throughout taking care of our needs. Maybe some more variety in food...

We had issue with the buffet food temperature. Even at 19:30 dinner start time, food in the chafing containers was at best lukewarm. There was no provision for any warming, so the food cooled down. Several fellow travellers experienced stomach bugs. Restaurant staff seemed unconcerned with the problem. Our Mercury tour rep. did nothing also. You have been warned. It...
