The room we were given was a little congested due to the amount of furniture pushed in. It could have been made a little more spacious. The bathroom though small was neat and the towels large and clean. The soap provided was perhaps the best I have come across in my many years of travel. They have a wonderful seating area where you can relax with a drink and have a wonderful view of the surroundings. The dinner was routine stuff though, however the breakfast more than compensated for it. They have a variety of drinks to choose from on the menu but all of it may not be available.
It is better to check what is available before placing an order.
They good provide for a better quality of tea in the room. I do not recall seeing coffee packs in the room. We ordered for two cups of coffee and were served with tea instead. Small mistakes in an otherwise comfortable place with very friendly staff and managers. A stay worth remembering and if possible a place worth revisiting

Hotel with calm and quiet environment. You can see the best view of Giritale tank from this hotel. Rooms are old and dark with damaged furniture. Only Sri Lankan beak first buffet I ever had without any Rice item even around 95% of guests were Sri Lankan that day. (Note that rice is main food in Sri Lanka)
Tea bags that provided to room are Low quality unbranded and not refresh.

Great view. Rooms are older but manageable. Good food. Staff was very courteous and friendly. Front office was dark, 40 year old hotel but no complaints. We stayed just one night. Hotel is at a top of a mountain.

The best location near girithale tank where you can see the elephants who are reaching to the tank in the evening. Sun set is stunning at the horizons of the tank. Good staff and food. Rooms are very good in facilities. Elevated location gives the best view.

Room Tip: Tank view rooms are stunning

Amazing spa and decent food

With a bit of update this hotel can do much better and worth the price
