Does what it says on the tin
Sally D [TA], , Manchester, United Kingdom

If I could give this place 2.5 stars, I would. Booked on behalf of me and my partner as part of a tour across Sri Lanka it was not the usual type of hotel I would book. Keep in mind the price you pay, and you will not be disappointed. Rooms basic but very clean (thank you), I slept well and the food was filling. Shower was really bad, like a trickle of water which isn't the most refreshing. Some very dodgy wiring of the shower - there is a plug socket powering the electric shower. Staff were nice. Did the job as a base for two nights, nothing more, nothing less.

Nice swimming pool
ColinKang [TA], , Seoul, South Korea

A hotel with a great swimming pool.
And the morning bird watching is a must.
The room is not too tidy, but just about worth the price.
It is just a nice place to chill out and enjoy the fresh air.
Recommended for all kinds of travelers.

Close to Minneriya National Park
Staffan C [TA], , Uddevalla, Sweden

Nice hotel with a great pool. Very crowded as it is close to the National Park. You can sit outside your bungalow for a drink but watch up for the mosquitos. Nice big rooms. Friendly personal. Serving buffe dinner and breakfast. Wi if in the reception

Pretty Nice Place!
Deb K [TA], ,

We only stayed here overnight but found it to be a very nice place (pun intended)! The room located in the jungle was surprisingly beautiful, clean and with flowers on the bed - and the shower with hot water worked (albeit low pressure, which you get used to in Sri Lanka). We had already eaten so can't comment on the food and the breakfast was not our best but fairly standard for Sri Lanka.

The pool area was also very nice though we arrived to late for swimming. Have to admit it was a bit buggy and there wasn't much choice at the bar but we had a good night's sleep and it was just what we needed!

unexpectedly nice hotel
Familyfro... [TA], , Kiev, Ukraine

Frankly speaking we read a lot of negative reviews and had to accept this hotel as only one night transit hotel But we really enjoyed our time there HOtel built in colonial style and situated in very nice place Very green territory and especially in early morning you can enjoy songs of hundreds ob birds The all staff was very friendly Swimming in the dark among the mysteriuos sound of the jungle in well illuminated pool left an indelible mark The only one advice We lived in deluxe room so I am not sure if standart room also so big and clean Please mind!

Average experience
Franck B [TA], ,

average food: repetitive food, cold breakfast, average service
room ok but bathroom very poor and a bit dirty, they should be redone, limit not safe with wires hanging in shower
Far away for other dinner options
Service could improve

A fabulous, unexpected surprise
Janice G [TA], , Toronto, Canada

This was an unexpected and very pleasant surprise! Accommodation is in an individual chalet or a spacious room in a 4 unit building dotted around the large property with the open-sided dining room and lounge in a separate structure. A walk across an enclosed bridge takes you to the pool which is stunning in itself and has a large lounging area. The food is buffet style and fine, though not outstanding and the staff are young and attentive. Even though it rained, I had no problem with insects and was able to sit out on my balcony in the morning and evening.

Room Tip: Wifi was available in the main building

Haven in the jungle
Doidgy [TA], , Darwin, Australia

What a lovely surprise the rooms are roomy and the grounds are huge. The swimming pool is a good walk away and a oasis in the jungle. Having a beer at the bar waiting to try out the restaurant.
The staff are friendly and we were given a drink on arrival.
The only downside so far is that it is 1.5 km down a rough side lane.

Very nice
jesrani [TA], , Mumbai (Bombay), India

This was our first stay on our Sri Lanka trip with 3 families.
The hotel is located in a nice farm like environment. The rooms are large, spacious. Very comfortable. Bathrooms were large and clean.
The food was pretty good and the chef made efforts to make something for us pure vegetarians as well as 2 Jain members in the group.
The staff was very nice and made us comfortable.
The swimming pool location was awesome and the water very clean.
All in all it was a perfect start to the holiday and would definitely recommend the place.
