We stayed at the hotel with our group (14 other people) and were appalled by the poor quality of the room and the dirtiness of the bathroom. The AC is strong and it is difficult to sleep if you are a light sleeper. The bathroom was very dirty and was not cleaned properly. We were surprised to see that some... More

Located close to many natural attractions (lakes, jungles), Sorrowwa Resort and Spa gives you an unforgettable experience. Elephant rides along the banks of the river is a great experience. The staff and the food are great.

Stayed for one night and scored the VIP room (401) which had 2 bathrooms, dining room and a living area, but no view to speak of. This hotel tries hard but falls down in some important areas. Water pressure in our room was just about non-existent and having a shower was a challenge but the floor flooded so less water... More

This was the 1st stop for our party of 4 doing the culteral triangle in Sri Lanka. We arrived in a rainstorm which does make the road to the lake muddy but we're welcomed with cool towels and a refreshing drink. The rooms were spacious with lovely balcony and view over lake. We did find the locals using the smaller... More

Small hotel with 23 spacious rooms most with large balconies over looking the Habarana reservoir. Placed centrally in the cultural triangle, with easy access to Anuradhapura, Avukana, Mihintale, Polonnaruwa, Segiriya, Damblla, Ritigala, and many more attractions, this is the perfect base for exploring the area and for relaxation. Facilities include a lovely swimming pool, small gymnasium, and a spar offering... More

Staying here for 3 days to be able to capture some sight seeing locally. The room is great and the balcony view is mesmerising looking at all the wildlife. The thing that could be better is the staff being multi lingual. For example you ask for a coffee then have to tell a few more people until you find one... More

We stayed here for two nights and were really pleased with this hotel. Our room had a great view of the lake and the food was lovely with a good selection. All the staff were friendly and helpful.

We stayed here 3 nights and can't speak more highly of this hotel. I am sometimes unsure what other reviewers expect. Ok wi-fi isn't in the room, although we could just get it in 206 and 207, the idea is to have a Holiday, you Fong need it in your room, it's no effort to go down to the fantastic... More

Stayed at this hotel for a few days after Christmas and the view really is stunning over the lake. Unfortunately the hotel was just a little worn and dated and wasn't up to the standard that it really could have been with a little work.

Nested at the edge of a small lake, Sorowwa Resort is a small resort which is modern in design but surrounded by the tranquillity of nature. It looks and feels fairly new and everything works mostly, although we didn’t manage to lock onto a wifi signal from our room on the third floor. Our friends one floor below had better... More
