We spent four days at The Deer Park. It is a comfortable hotel with a great view of Lake Giritale - particularly attractive as the sun sets. Deer Park is a large hotel and has many groups staying. Accommodation must vary considerably; we had a very nice cottage facing the lake – one of the hotel’s top accommodation options. Our...

We stayed here for two nights and it was a wonderful break on a busy trip. The rooms are large and beds very comfortable. Quiet air conditioning made it very pleasant at night. The bathroom was a particular feature, being open air and with a tree growing next to the shower. Above all, the staff are so friendly and helpful....

We arrived after dark and were shown to our clean modern bungalow room with the novelty of an open air shower room (don't worry, not overlooked!) Very pleasant pool area and after a quick dip, changed for dinner. Excellent staff and service and a very enjoyable buffet dinner at reasonable (for a hotel restaurant ) price. Breakfast in the morning...

We really enjoyed the hotel. The whole set-up is different from what we normally see and original: the bungalows and swimming pool like a mini-village in the forest, the view on the artificial lake at sunset, the terrasses and water plants and the restaurant. The employees were all educated, nice and always seemed to be in a good mood. We...

Attractive hotel, with excellent staff. Nice gardens, with monkeys and many birds. We had our own little garden villa, with an outdoors private bathroom. The large living area downstairs was not very useful; in the end you were sitting on your bed in the bedroom. Nice meals. Quite some distance from main attractions. Lake should offer opportunities for some walking...

A beautiful setting overlooking the man-made lake, this hotel deserves all the praise it gets. The public areas are spacious, spotlessly clean and comfortable. Our room, 308, was a 2 story maisonettes with a large sitting area downstairs and the huge king size bed upstairs. The unusually large bathroom has not only a bath, basin and toilet, but also a...

We can highly recommend this hotel. The setting, rooms, pool,food & above all the attentiveness of the staff was excellent. Unfortunately I didn't have time to use the spa facilities. Many thanks for the cooking demonstration on our 2nd night & providing coconut sambal at breakfast prior to our departure. We would love to return some day.
