After a couple of issues on check in both taken care of in a direct and caring manner by Pryant (guest services manager) we really enjoyed our stay. Exceptionally good food in the restaurant overlooking the lake. Great overall location near the historic temple ruins and right ne

We loved this hotel, only stayed for 1 night, but were made to feel very welcome from the start. We booked a lake view room, which was huge, and beautifully furnished, and just what we wanted after 9 hours on the train from Colombo (should have been 6 hours).

We didn't eat at th

Me and my husband have just enjoyed 2 nights here.

The location is brilliant - you are next door to the museum where you buy your tickets for the Ancient City.

The hotel is next to the lake and the views are stunning. It’s very peaceful and Priyantha helpfully organised us a

Hello, we are looking to book the Ekho Lake House for September but we too are not getting any response to our emails. Today their website appears to be down. Any advice on how to get a response? Thank you
We just book through Agoda.

Hello, I will go to Ekho Lake House in August and I'm trying to contact them for 2 weeks now. They are not answering on the website email addresses. I'm interested in Airport transfer and also tours to visit the other known places around the cultural triangle. Any advice? Thanks
You can WhatsApp or call the hotel staff Udesh directly on +94772736717 He will do the needful and I have informed them personally. You should visit Lion Rock (Sigiriya) though bit away from Echo Lake. Suggest you stay at Heritance Kandalama and visit Sigiriya. Then go to Anuradhapura if you are interested in Buddhist historical places. Plan your trip so that you could visit Pinnawala elephant orphanage on your way to polonnaruwa. Enjoy your trip.

Dear, We are interested in booking for our family (2 adults and 2 kids 10 and 12y old). We would like 2 rooms next or close to eachother. So what do you think I book best? . 2 superiors? 2 deluxe? a superior and a deluxe? What is best to book so we can be close to eachother? Thank you Kind Regards Nathalie
Hi Nathalie, The hotel is not that big and the rooms are next to eachother. So if you book the same roomtype and request for two rooms next to eachother it should be fine In most cases. We booked a deluxe room which is very nice. There are three deluxe rooms next to eachother I believe but please contact the hotel directly for confirmation. Please note bookings via their website go to the headoffice and the headoffice will inform the hotel. So it would be good to make sure hotel and headoffice are aligned. Best, Heloise

I've been trying to contact you for a month and I have been ignored in all correspondence. It's not as though I'm making a complaint. All I want is information on my up coming stay? Which I will probably now cancel if they don't get your act together and answer one of my numerous emails or messages.
"We had a full lake view, it was stunning."
"There are no bad rooms, they are all wonderful"
"The Queens Suite is fantastic and well worth splurging on."
"All good but the luxury rooms facing out into 5he lake are the best in my opinion"
"Ask to see the room that the Queen of England stayed in."
