Only had lunch after a white water rafting. Lunch was good. there were may varieties to choose. A external look of the hotel is beautiful. The look of the restaurant is also astonishing. There re many antiques presented inside the hotel. Hotel has a car museum with various old cars.

If your objective is white water rafting and need a place just to shuttle between then this is ok. The prices are reasonable but the food needs huge improvement even for the price offered. I suggest go only for room and ala cart. Definitely not buffet. They got a pool too. Honestly a nice place right beside the river but...

Basic hotel but there is a Porsche tractor on display! The hotel is right by the river so make sure you have insect repellent on at all times. What the hotel lacks in facilities it more than makes up for it with its character and relics. The bathrooms could do with updating but the bed was comfortable and the room...

what stays with you is the place itself, plantation style, nicely presented rooms, verandah overlooking the Kelani river, a delicate collection of antique cars, free wifi..... what doesn't is the inconsistent staff, terrible, terrible, absolutely terrible food, difficulty to get decent information from this place, inability to get regular running water, phones not working.... just that such a fab location...

We had a lovely room with huge shared balcony overlooking the river. Ideal location for bird watching in the surrounding forest. We do not recommend hotel guests having lunch in the hotel as it is dedicated to tour parties and our attempts to get service were ignored. We stayed half board but felt like second class citizens when we were...

This hotel is ideally placed for access to the Kitali NP and its attendant birdlife, which was our main reason for staying here. It is also a popular lunch stop for those who have been rafting or simply passing through on a coach trip, and this is one of its major weaknesses. It was plain after a couple of days...

There were lots of foreigners and looks like the place is quite popular among them. The food prices are expenses ( from a locals perspective) however is clean. There is a auto measeum but the...

The last thing you expect to find in calm hotel near the river in Kitulgala is a great private collectin of beautiful retro vehicles. The hotel and the restaurant are nice but this museum created with so much love is what makes it worth a visit.
