What a fantastic hotel. 5 star luxury. Fabulous room with all amenities including a fire. Wonderful views overlooking manicured fields. Food was excellent and extremely friendly and helpful staff. Raining so did’nt try pool but it looked great. Wish we had stayed for two nights.

Rooms are a bit tired. Breakfast and dinner buffets were very comprehensive,lots of Sri Lankan choices. Pool was a bit too warm to be very refreshing. Very handy to Yala National Park. Air-con works well. Got to play cricket with local boys.

Our room was very nice with plenty of space: no view as such but very pleasant. The restaurant wasn't as well presented as others we have been to since arriving in SL, nothing bad, just not as much choice as others and we couldn't get a pot of leaf tea (who would have thought in SL). Pool was nice as...

We spent four days here and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The management and staff all go out of their way to ensure your comfort. It is a popular hotel for coach tour groups so can get very busy at dinner time, but there was always a table for us. Good selection of food in the buffet for an unbelievable 2000...

I was not staying in the hotel but they allowed me to pay 400 rupees for access to their pool for the afternoon. This is great value for money, especially as the Kithala resort asked for 2000 for the same (and their pool isn't as nice!) I ate in the poolside cafe which seemed very overpriced (550 for a smoothie,...

We stayed here due to its close proximity to Yala national park. We had one of the rooms away from the main complex which was spacious, modern and clean. The bathroom was enormous! Good pool and an adequate dining room but a lot of the food looked spectacular but didnt taste like anything. Trying to westernise things when they should...
