The hotel is small (probably no more than 10 rooms) but fairly well appointed. It is nestled in a patch of picturesque rice field, looking out onto the Tissa Lake. There are plenty of public space if you don’t want to stay in your room: a large open air chilling area with chairs and hammocks, and an open air lounge...

Found by our driver, we had a good night here. Gorgeous setting; views over the rice fields and lake. Excellent Sri Lankan curry and rice (one of the best) and superb breakfast, including hoppers. Friendly staff. Yes.. lots of insects.. more like dust from the rice-fields, seemed harmless and these attracted the fruit bats, flying in the thousands at dusk.......

This is a really well located hotel facing the huge lake in Tissa surrounded by rice fields. The view is great and they have spacious seating area on each floor including hammocks and an observation deck so you can see the whole area around. Convenient location to be picked up by safari jeeps and they will happily get up early...

Manager clearly said that he welcomes locals and foreigners in a different manner. Our experience was awful. He screamed at us when we asked to open the gate around 10pm. He couldn't control his temper and yelled at us in filthy words. So there was no option to go out in the night, the gate kept closed. View was nice....
