4/5 Good

  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, room comfort

Quiet & close to park entrance

Nice escape in a quiet location for one night. Property is a tad older & more spread out han shows online, could use some TLC especially at pool but good for one day safari at Udawalawe. In a quiet neighborhood.

4/5 Good

  • Liked: Staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort

Really cool place to stay

Great pool, great food, great staff and a really cool place to stay! I would highly recommend this place if you are stopping for safari. The only negative was that our toilet wouldn't flush properly and they didn't have a solution.

4/5 Good

Brilliant Stay and Highly recommended

Thought the stay was brilliant and would highly recommend anyone staying. Was clean, lovely and a wholesome experience

3/5

  • Liked: Cleanliness, property conditions & facilities
  • Disliked: Staff & service

Convenient hotel near Udawalawe

A reasonable hotel for visiting Udawalawe National Park as it's very near. Once there you will rely on the food available which is ok but not outstanding. The member of staff in the restaurant was friendly and efficient. Staff on reception were less so and tried to say we had to pay for breakfast which had been included in our rate. Ok for a one night stay. Wifi was good even in the chalets, so good marks for that. Not happy that price of wine was shown differently on different menus and we were charged the higher rate!
