This was a lovely hotel, in a wonderful location, overlooking 2 lakes, with elephants giving rides to tourists ambling along the lakeside. Magnificent sunsets from the balcony! The hotel is small and more intimate than huge hotels, and the staff were very friendly and helpful. The restaurant was excellent with lots of choice. Our room was spotless, spacious with a...

This is a pleasant medium sized hotel in a nice location overlooking the large lake with picturesque elephant rides creating a lovely tableau. The approach to the hotel isn't auspicious with the most uneven rocky road imaginable leading to the door - I don't know why they don't get this fixed. Service is very friendly but with a degree of...

We had an excellent experience. It started before we even reached the hotel, still making our way from Colombo for a late evening checkin. Around 21:00 the hotel phoned our driver to see what time he expected to arrive as they had to close down the buffet. Would they like us to prepare a couple of plates of food for...

We only stayed for a night but this was the only stay what I would not recommend as there are far better hotels in Sri Lanka and there might better ones in the close region as well. The location is in a slum area and road to the place is awfully bad, almost brakes the car. The staff is nice...

I read the other reviews, & yes there may have been little things to complain about, but they're not things that are any different to other Sri Lankan hotels.. And the staff are well meaning, even if they completely don't get how to mix lime with vodka, or make a capuccino, or just forget it altogether. Our rooms overlooked the...

Reached sorowo resort on 25th Dec and were allotted four rooms which were too small and dingy. Staff did not understand English and very rude. The staff were always evasive and avoid any questions and were rude. In fact the lady at reception dare to say shut up to one of my friend. Totally hopeless and no standard.

The Hotel is set in a good surrounding being by the lake. The lake view rooms are good but the corner rooms are pathetic. We were allotted rooms 210 & 310 which were small and dingy and had just 1 small window in the corner. It was really depressing. If you are coloured, there is a high chance that the...

Stayed there two days - 23rd and 24th December (Christmas eve). The Christmas eve party was hyped, but was a fizzy affair. The room has a good view, but towels, bedspreads and bathroom are below par. Food was below average. The people there was extremely helpful and courteous. The rooms were overlooking a small field/pond and the hotel has arranged...

I was really impressed by the reviews about this hotel that I found in tripadvisor, and was really looking forward to an relaxing stay here, but the from the moment we arrived here we faced nothing but disappointment.

Lovely small boutique hotel with very attentive service. Great room with fabulous view over lake. Good Aircon. Excellent food but a bit prone to running out if you weren't first. Not quite as good food as some other hotels but still to a high standard. Didn't really understand wine but waiter had excellent technique for pouring beer without making a...
