We visited this hotel whilst on a tour of Sri Lanka. It is on 2 stories and did not have a lift. Our room no 207 overlooked the lake and we were treated to a glorious sunset. The room was huge. It was bright and well lit with 2 x 3/4 beds. A/C, desk & chair, table & easy chairs,...

Dear Sir, Thank you very much for your amazing comments. I am really sorry for the delay of my feedback. I missed it in the site due to technical error. Strange….

Nice & well maintained property, Rooms are huge & can accommodate a family with 04 easily, Food is tasty & restaurant is spacious, Staff is friendly but need to focus more on customer satisfaction. In the restaurant feels that the priority is given for white skin & replenishing water is happening only after request, hope better supervision would eliminate this...

The hotel itself is well maintained, but the annex where we were housed was old and not of the same standard. It was however a very late booking, which is probably the reason why we were given those rooms. The restaurant is nice and the pool is worth a splash! Not far from the city, which is only 100 rupees...

The Hotel is one of the very good Hotel you can find in southern part of Sri Lanka. The Management and employees are very helpful and located near Chandrika Lake in Embilipitiya. The Hotel view is very good since the lake side location and there is a small pool also with this hotel. The Mattala Mahinda Rajapakse International Airport is...

We stayed in this hotel for one night before moving on to the southern coast. The room we stayed in was spacious, very modern and clean. No comments there. The lobby looks rather outdated but does have free wifi. The restaurant and bar of this hotel, however, are terrible. Not necessarily in terms of the food and service (had better...

Stayed for 1 night after visiting Uda Walawe National Park. The steepm steps leading to the reception as previous reviews mention will be an issue for people with mobility issues.

Stayed here on 14th December for one night on full board basis. The room and bathroom were very clean and of a good size. The hotel was quiet except for wedding ceremonies which seem to be a main part of their business. Food was adequate, if unexciting, but this is not an expensive hotel. The dining room is huge and...

Large room and toilet, clean linen, view over a lake, in situ spa, ample parking, lots of steep steps to climb to get to the reception (!) and basic food would sum up our experience. To be fair, the hotel is under renovation and the usual entrance is closed. There was a faulty plug point in the room which sparked,...
