Convenient location for sightseeings of Dambulla, Sigiriya and Minneriya Park. The place is under new management, the staff is friendly, especially the owner Ranjit. He was attentive to all our needs.
Overall experience is good for a budget place. We enjoyed Sri Lankan style live cooking with peaceful atmosphere.

i was expecting a lot from a holiday resort located such a beautiful rural area, but I should say I am very disappointed. Very poor customer service, and average room condition. Room service was poor too. No restaurant operational, it could have been a nightmare if we did not have any meals already with us. Not recommend!

If our driver hadn't known the owner I'm not sure we would have found the hotel but once we were there it was fantastic! I think you need a driver to stay here, it might be difficult otherwise.
An amazing location to visit lots of the cultural triangle. The owner brandy had lots of recommendations on things to do and was wonderfully friendly. He also took us on a forest walk on one morning and his knowledge was very good on all the wildlife and trees.
It was interesting to read that other people had problems with the rooms....we didn't have any problems at all...the only thing might be to have had a second mosquito net (we were in a triple room but only had a net over the double bed). That said, the air conditioning and fan met Mosquitos inside the room weren't actually a problem.
There is no wifi anywhere in the hotel. I can't work out if I did or didn't like this...it was nice to escape but also meant we couldn't look up things in the surrounding area.

The food was all wonderfully prepared...amazing breakfasts and dinners...particularly the day brandy did us a barbecued lake fish!!
