Reviewed 20 March 2017

Our travel agent in Colombo quickly changed our hotel booking to this hotel after we refused the booking at JC Village Dambulla.
This is a fairly remote hotel with wonderful views over the lake.
The staff are very warm and friendly.
The rooms are fairly basic but clean and adequate for a few days stay.

Room Tip: ask for either room 12 or 13 as they have best views and access to a garden.

The bedrooms are very gloomy so it's difficult to read. There would have been a good view but unfortunately the weather was too bad to see it as it rained all the time we were there and there was low cloud. Very dark in public areas so very easy to fall off steps.

Room Tip: I think all rooms face the view so all equal.

We are group of five.Stayed at this Hotel 10/3-14/3 2017. The staff,service,food,view were fantastic. We a great stay. Everything is clean,food is very good. Fruit cocktails and desserts were best from all countries I have ever visited. Every evening we had dinner with prepared table to us with the flag of our country.And we are from Lithuania,small country,so we were very pleased. It is very hor now,so you can have fresh swim in a pool,which has 3m deep end,was also unexpetwd surprise. Outside in the garden are lots of monkeys,so be careful,do not leave anything in the balcony.
Highly recommendes hotel in the middle of Sri lanka. Not far from Lion Rock,Polonnaruwa ruins ,Kaudulla national park with elephants. Enjoy your stay :)

Room Tip: We stayed at ground floor,rooma 107-108on the right side,has balcony and view to the lake

Stayed at this hotel for one night with our Tour Group. Good, comfortable rooms with a good view of the tank, as they call it. Pool lovely but could do with more loungers, and a more attentive towel man! Very good food with lovely choice of buffet.

We had a very nice 2 night stay here. The views were stunning, and could be seen from the room, restaurant and pool area! The food was buffet style with a good amount of choice.
Unfortunately on the first night there was a loud dripping sound after it had rained which kept us up a lot of the night. However when we informed the staff they upgraded us the following night to the bridal suite which was beautiful and did not have the dripping sound problem! Overall a good stay and I would recommend!
