Gently situated next the highway from Trinco you find this rather standard hotel. Good for a one night stay on the way through (which makes it popular with groups) and also relatively close to the Dambulla caves, Mihintale and Sigiriya. It has a pool with highway view. Rooms are pretty standard, including a gadget: with one touch of the master... More

The reception staff were courteous and friendly. Rooms were basic but clean. The safety box could only be operated with a key, as the electronic lock was not operable. The hotel has a pleasant setting, with a lot of greenery and a nice pool area. However the location next to the main road does tend to be some what noisy.... More

This is a quaint little property with a lot of greenery. The restaurant serves pretty decent breakfast and dinner catering to international guests. There is an Indoor pool and a walking track too. The staff are very courteous but they shut their gates after 11pm. The Government hospital is about 2 kms away.

The hosts are friendly and the garden looks nice. Unfortunately they have quite old mattresses, you feel the spirals when lying on bed which hinders a good night-sleep. And the overall cleanness has some room for improvement too (dirty floors and showers). The food is soso, nothing special.
