Nice family run restaurant in a garden setting, good room with a basic bathroom. Hotel was clean and tidy. The swimming pool is a nice feature. Friendly and helpful staff. Could easily have stayed more than one night

We stayed here for one night while touring around Sri Lanka. A beautiful place to stay and we saw a fantastic sunset just across the road from the hotel. The dinner and breakfast we got at this hotel were amazing, beautiful food cooked to perfection.

Friendly host who provided a charming little room. After hot day walking around the area the pool was a welcome relief for us and the kids as was afternoon tea under the mango trees. The garden was cute and well maintained, the local guide provided a highly enjoyable lake bicycle ride in the morning which is highly recommended. Food was...

The hotel is absolutely beautiful, with big rooms and bathrooms and very stylish decoration. It feels like a home of a rich friend. The staff is wonderfully friendly. Would have loved to stay much longer.

Stayed at this guesthouse for one night. Its pretty basic but it was fine, room was comfortable and basic, wifi worked well. Restaurant food was better than expected and I enjoyed my night here. It is right across from the lake and close to all local attractions

We stayed here for two night while we were on tour. The place had a comfortable feel to it; and we liked the open dining area, the food, the small but very refreshing swimming pool; and the friendly service. Nicest touch was the dish of freshly-roasted cashews with curry leaves that appeared in response to our request for "some nuts"...

We stayed here for 2 nights (unfortunately during bad weather). The rooms were comfortable with good bathroom with hot water. The pool was nice. Breakfast was good. The hotel was quite empty - which meant it was quiet - so great for sleeping. Staff were friendly and organised a tuk tuk tour for us. The hotel did get busier during...

On arrival we got a lovely tropical fruit juice. Lovely clean room great pool. We had an amazing prawn dish, pleasant wine, cold beer and stunning dessert. The waiter was very helpful and full of fun. Breakfast was a wonderful meal as well served by the same excellent waiter. Sad it was only one night.

We stayed here one night on a tour. Excellent service, fine room, pool, garden. Dinner in the restaurant was the best of our trip so far, grilled prawns and seer fish. Traditional lunch and breakfast were also very good.
