This is the worst and darkest guesthouse we ever stayed. We stayed two nights in this hotel and collected terrible experience. They destroyed our children’s whole vacation. This is a very regular hotel. Location is not bad, it is calm. Near to Inamaluwa lake side. Rooms are dirty some insects are inside. Bathroom floor level higher than Bedroom floor. So, water streams come inside to the room. A lot of frogs are there. Room floor always wets. Bathrooms are very dirty. Water closet is not working properly. Bathroom door can’t lock. At least unable to close. We could not have a proper bath. Very disappointed. Hot water shower is not frequently working. Muddy water coming from tap lines. No rakes or any cloth hanging way. We are using chairs for that. Mosquitos friendly, A/C works, but cannot control the temperature. We complained several times, but the answer is not positive. Always trying to climb. Very corrupt customer service. The manager is a storyteller. Smile face but telling lies. Meals: Dinner – Insufficient and not good. (Price very high) Breakfast - Very good and delicious. (Price OK) Lunch – We didn’t try. Bites: No verities and limited (Egg & potato chips) Bed Tea: Very Bad. Swimming pool: It is not a pool. ha ha…..Just a pond. Lot of frogs are there . Water is uncleaned. Web site photos are fake. Wi-Fi & TV: Not working Adventure Park: Do not use. It is very dangerous and like ruins We don't propose this hotel to anyone. If you need to check this go alone. Do not go with your children’s. Finally, we strongly request you do not try to take this experience. To owner : Mr.Brandy (SLINT GL) , We are ashamed of you.

Hard to believe this hotel is rated as anything but ordinary. Location on edge of lake..pretty dried up. Room clean but toilet leaked all over floor..constantly wet..I think it was water!!!!!!! Main door warped leaving gap for insects to enter room. Mosqitos friendly, A/C works but....temperature control said 32 but was in fact cooler. Food ok if limited selection.. Place was some form of adventure park but don't risk the sky bridge..boards rotten likely to break your neck. Staff friendly but amateurs at running anything.. Hotel a long way from main road. If you have patience to sit outside you may catch a look at a Sri Lankan Grizzled Squirrel...suposed to be under threat but one is around and curious. Cheap place to stay.

Convenient location for sightseeings of Dambulla, Sigiriya and Minneriya Park. The place is under new management, the staff is friendly, especially the owner Ranjit. He was attentive to all our needs. Overall experience is good for a budget place. We enjoyed Sri Lankan style live cooking with peaceful atmosphere.

i was expecting a lot from a holiday resort located such a beautiful rural area, but I should say I am very disappointed. Very poor customer service, and average room condition. Room service was poor too. No restaurant operational, it could have been a nightmare if we did not have any meals already with us. Not recommend!
