We checked in around 05 pm in the afternoon. We were welcome by the reception staff and had a quick check in. Rooms was bit old and damp smell. Food was good. But not so many verities. We could visit the Polonnaruwa site like 10 minutes away from the hotel.

This was a beautiful hotel in a beautiful location. Rooms were lovely and spa treatments were very nice. Be careful of the monkeys as they tend to get a bit too close to visitors. A buffet was offered for breakfast, lunch and dinner but they also had a separate menu to choose food from as well. Close to the town...

This I think, is one of the best hotels of Pollonaruwa. It's easily locatable on Google and there are direction boards too. The hospitality was good. We had booked a 3 bed room with an extra bed. A very spacious room with all amenities. Had an amazing pool. The room service was also quick. The breakfast spread was nice. The...

We stayed here as part of a longer trip and wanted to treat ourselves for Christmas so we booked 2 nights. We weren't disappointed. Very warm welcome and friendly staff. Rooms were huge, clean and comfortable, with lovely hot showers (first on our trip!). Because we had arrived on Christmas Eve we were told that there was a gala dinner...

The pool, the views of the lake, the elephants roaming by, the service, the spa... I could go on for ages! This hotel is lovely, if not quite old fashioned, but this adds to its charm. I recommend getting a steam bath, super relaxing.
