We spent only one night in Wadula Hotel, and for me it was enough. We arrived at late evening, and we found the room to be really simple (what we expected). Looked quite old, bathroom too. There were bugs inside (no problem, i travelled with my own bug spray), and the feeling of being there was not comfortable... Thank God...

Thanks a lot for the review.It is noted that you have referred to bugs in our rooms.Sorry we dont have bugs but if you keep room doors opened,You will have few mosquitos in the room. You probably would have mistaken mosquitos for bugs. As for the price of the rooms we discussed with you and came to an agreement.It is...

It is tough to write this review because we really loved meeting the owner. He is such an amazing storyteller and very knowledgable about Sri Lanka. The man has his PhD in Tactical Missile Warheads!!! The grounds are beautiful but in the end, I think they were just too rustic for us. OUr first night was filled with cockroaches and...

The guestw on arrival introduced himself as a travel agent from Turkey and wanted to occupy a Airconditioned room whereas he had booked a non a/c room.We politely showed him the voucher and turned down his request as we felt that he was trying to show that he is here to give business to us and therefore he should get...

For the price the rooms are relatively clean but there is not much else to say about this place. Thet ropical weather is starting take its toll on the builidngs, rooms and surrounds. With a bit more attention this place could live up to the reviews from a while back.

Wadula hotel was our hotel well guesthouse for the visit to sigiriya rock. From the garden things looked promising but once you enter the premises is homely yet a little run down. Our bags were taken to the room whilst we filled out the paperwork. The rooms were basic and in need of a lick of paint. The bed was...

Thanks a lot for the review.It is in wilderness and you would have to bear up the mosquitos.It is certainly not bugs.The menace of mosquitos is only during rainy season during which you visited us.

We quite liked this place, partly because the (somewhat quirky) layout meant that we had a large veranda with tables and chairs for our friends to spread out on. The meals were decent. The staff are friendly enough. They are a funny mix - the owner is a very sharp guy, with a quirky personality but perfect english. The other...

This hotel needs a few simple things done to make it acceptable. Sort out the unreliable power as we and all other guests we spoke to had problems with power and hot showers. The rooms need painting and new bed linen, towels and pillows. All food we ate was cold - very strange! If these things were fixed it would...
