A buddy and I booked the Triple non-airconditioned room. The room was clean and cool despite not having aircon. A big ceiling fan helped a lot. The location is excellent, just a ten minute walk from the train station. The staff are extremely helpful and the owner who we referred to as "hotel mom" was very helpful in making sure...

Check in was very easy. The lady who assisted us with the check in was helpful with information on where to eat, when to see the Kandyan Dances, when to go to the temple etc. The room was basic and clean. No TV in the room which was fine. The bathroom was clean as well and had great water pressure....

I found this hotel excellent for its value. The staff were very accommodating, the home made jams and organic breakfast was perfect ... it is quiet and the staff were very friendly. Also the owner greeted us herself and talked to us about srilanka. Would definitely stay again.

The hotel is in an excellent location walking distance to the lake and temple of tooth. Friendly polite staff. Breakfast was good. We had to leave early for a day trip to sigiriya one morning so the staff packed our breakfast to take with us. Laundry service available. Staff also helped us with questions we had re train to Ella.

There are lots of food options close by including a good ice cream place. The hotel is on a busy road so it's quite noisy. The beds are comfortable and there is...

We were met with some really friendly faces at the reception. The staff was courteous, polite and ever so helpful in making your arrangements for us. The breakfast layout is clean and simple. The rooms are done up well and the bathrooms are neatly maintained.

My daughter and I stayed at Sevana after arriving from Colombo by train and then heading to Galle. There's a lovely story to this property - it used to be the family home but has been thoughtfully converted with attractive contemporary features. Our rooms had a great outlook over the town and hills. And most attractions are in easy walking...
