Our stay with the Giritale hotel in Polonnaruwa was great. The room had a slight chemical smell but it was spotlessly cleaned. The bed was comfortable and breakfast in the morning was good. The staff was helpful and friendly.

It was a quick decision to stay at this hotel with my family and was perferct for a stay over and I reserved this for a H/B. Reception was okay and served with a welcome drink. But we were given a corner room and the view was not that good. However the A/C was running like an engine and we complained about it. Then they suddenly changed the room to good room with a better view. Don't know why they didn't give a better room initially. But that didn't bother our stay. Pool area was good and having an old pool with a perfect view to the lake and forests. Sunset was fantastic while seeing from the pool area. Food was average and nothing bad as it was a very simple buffet. Stay was okay for the low price ususally they offer. Service was not bad apart from the room allocation. Perfect for a stay over rather than spending the whole day or couple days.

View is amazing in the hotel with well cleaned room. They had a friendly staff who encourage the best hospitality service. During our stay we had delicious food and special thanks to chef and team. As well as F&B Team. Front office team is friendly and clear instructions. Eventually worth for money 😊 we will come back again #giritalehotel #hotelgiritale #giritale

The rooms are very good, the location excellent and the vast majority of staff were excellent. The problem though is in the restaurant. The buffet food is OK, pretty Westernised but the waiter staff are far to keen to get you to pay for anything. What happens is you order a drink and within seconds they are on you asking for payment. They also make mistakes. Two members of our party asked for a single gin and tonic, they were charged for a double. Now I realise the monies are small but they absolutely refused to back down asking for payment for a drink that we did not order. I expect it's a management structure but it did partially spoil a lovely place

Stayed 2 nights as part of a 7 night tour of Sri Lanka. Whilst accepting that like elsewhere the Hotel is reopening after Covid it really does need to up its performance Positives Location is stunning over looking the lake Pool is in a lovely position with loungers but looking tired Negatives Buffet was poor , especially 1st night with lots of customers in restaurant. Food was extremely average A La Carte - exceptionally long wait for food Service - there is a nice terrace overlooking garden/ pool with lovely views of lake. Could not get a drink served for approx 1 hr. Staff obviously knew we were present but for some reason no drinks offerred. General condition of Hotel. It really need to be upgraded or at least a good luck of fresh paint / wood stain. It looks tired and a bit run down and not a patch on the other hotels we stayed in
