Hard to believe this hotel is rated as anything but ordinary. Location on edge of lake..pretty dried up. Room clean but toilet leaked all over floor..constantly wet..I think it was water!!!!!!!

Main door warped leaving gap for insects to enter room.

Mosqitos friendly, A/C works but....temperature control said 32 but was in fact cooler.

Food ok if limited selection..

Place was some form of adventure park but don't risk the sky bridge..boards rotten likely to break your neck.

Staff friendly but amateurs at running anything..

Hotel a long way from main road.

If you have patience to sit outside you may catch a look at a Sri Lankan Grizzled Squirrel...suposed to be under threat but one is around and curious.

Cheap place to stay.

Room tip: Check to see if toilet leqks on floor before signing up

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!
