Stayed 2 nights. Even though room needed updating and had a strange smell! we could ignore that because of our balcony views across Giritale lake. We saw elephants in the distance and plenty of wild life in the grounds below us, including monkies.
The room has tea/coffee supplies and strong wifi in the bedrooms also.
The sit out reception area and dining room also had the same amazing views.
Breakfast and evening meals gave a good choice.
The only criticism of meal times is that the Hotel caters for several large coach groups staying and they all eat at the same time making the restaurant very busy and noisy.
Am also not keen on the long table style dining of 20 or so people sat together.
Bit like a school dinner hall.
On the plus side we were on a table for two with each table having their respective national flat on it. A nice touch.

Stayed: November 2017, travelled as a couple

I visited Hotel Girithale on 04th OCT 2017 with my office team. Hotel Staff were very supportive all the times and all the events. Food quality and taste is average,no special varieties in buffet,
Room quality and room space is not enough, Any how landscaping and hotel outdoor view is amazing. Giritale lake add massive advantage to hotel

Room Tip: 3rd floor lake view rooms

Hotel is located next to Giritale lake which gives an amazing view. Staff is so friendly and happy to help you at anytime. I would like to point out following points, which I experienced during my stay.

Pool - Not very big. 10 people is enough to make it crowded.

Meals - Average

Sleep - Bit disturbing since small insects had managed to squeeze to the room from the space between the main door and floor. Beds are comfortable. Room lighting is dull but looks cozy.

Night time - It would be difficult to stay out of the room as small insects fly everywhere.

Special note - This hotel will give optimal conditions to people who love to have a relaxing stay in a peaceful environment.

Room Tip: Rooms on level 3 will give a better view than others.

Dear Guest,

Thank you for visiting our Hotel and we appreciate your comments.
Since we are in the Jungle (Cultural Site) the insects tend to come after the rain. The Pool will be rebuild which is in our refurbishment program.

Wish you all the Best and visit us again..

Best Regards

Hotel is located in an excellent place where the view is excellent. I visited this place 3 times because I love the view so much.. Supportive and polite staff, delicious food & comfortable rooms made my stay comfortable at Hotel Gritale. Pool & hanging out areas are superb. Simply I love this place...
