Hotel refused to allow our driver to stay saying booking.com takes too much margin. Internet was slow and unusable. Breakfast average. Rooms had slippery floors and couldnt be walked on bare footed...Overall attitude of staff poor.

This property is nicely laid out with double unit chalets spaced out between trees and turf. It gives you the feel that you are camping in the jungle with all the luxuries only an arms length away. The pool is lovely to take a dip in to cool yourself off after climbing the famous Sigiriya or "Lion Rock".... a must see if you come to this neck of the woods. The staff were very friendly and the food delicious! Rooms and bathrooms were clean and well maintained with toiletries and linen provided. This is definitely an option for those who want to experience the local culture.
