First night, we booked the newly opened tree house because it looked nice on the photos. I should have asked for a room change as soon as I opened the lid of the toilet, it was infested by all kinds of insects. The cups and glasses were dirty.

One night stay on our trip around Sri Lanka. Simply furnished but comfortable rooms with a large bathroom and great shower. We booked a triple room and were pleasantly surprised to find a second single bedroom rather than all three beds in one room. The gardens and pool area are really beautiful and lush and are very secluded - a...

We stayed there for 2 nights and they were among the best of our trip. The rooms are nice, the pool is small but in a lovely garden. The owners are very attentive and sweet. A special mention for the food which is just sublime. It's a set menu but it will please even picky eaters.

Really lovely and charming place. Nice pool. Breakfast and dinner excellent. Very secluded. Rooms are not luxurious but fine. Hotel not too far by car from Drambulla Caves and Sigiriya. It is about a 4 hour drive from the airport in Colombo.

The hotel is very remote and it does feel like a hideout ! (which is nice). Very beautiful garden, with banana trees, birds... very well maintained. Very peaceful swimming pool. The room was huge, with a front porch, and was nice, but at 75 euros / night, it's a bit pricey I think. A bit old looking, no AC. Staff...
