We stayed one night and luckily no more. Staff was great and brought us a complimentary plate of fresh fruits (which raises my score from 1 to 2). The hotel however was less appealing... Room was very dated, only bathroom looked nice. Floors were having holes in them, ceiling was dirty and coming down in places, the tv in the... More

We stayed one night here in April'15. We got the room over looking the lake. The room was big and one side of the wall was glass over looking the lake which was beautifully lit at night. We hardly stayed at the room as we had gone on the safari all day. Room was decently clean- Except middle of the... More

Small hotel in a nice location. This hotel was under construction. We were there for 1 night. Rooms were bad and lot to improve. Mainly, it was dusty and found lots of cobwebs. Staff members were helpful. Food was good and reasonably priced. Overall, not worth for the money you spend.

We stayed here for 1 night only.. it was really very bad experience. There were no tiles on bathroom wall only cement plaster , bathroom doors were broker, no dustbin in bathroom, mosquitoes were there. And food was just horrible. when we went for breakfast food was in open and there were houseflies on food. Very worst experience.

Spacious rooms with good view and TV. However, not many guests were there. A bit run down, with cobwebs along the corridor. Stinking bathroom, stained dry towels. Hot tap was faulty, no hot water. Felt unclean after the cold water bath in the stained bathroom. Cups and saucers were stained too. WiFi only available at hotel lobby. Their western breakfast... More

I stayed at Taprospa Thissa with my family. I think this is the best location in Thissa with great view of the lake. Its easy to find and just approx 30 minute drive to the National Park and another 45 minute drive to the Katharagama Temple. The service was good. Front office staff called and checked the arrival time before... More

Taprospa Tissa is a simple resort with a great view to the lake. Our room was very spacious and was exactly by the lake. The resport was open, big with a calm ambience. The staff were friendly and nice. We spent the night sitting by the lake on the balcony while having some beer and great food. A place great... More

We had a few reservations about this place after reading some of the reviews but our trepidation was misplaced. The pool and view over the lake are perfect, especially after a long drive or a safari. One of the check-in staff was not overly friendly on arrival but was fine for the rest of our stay. The wait staff were... More

This is a very local hotel, despite impressions to the contrary. When I visited, almost all the guests were local Sri Lankan or Indian. The hotel adapts itself to the guests, so the food fits the palate! They can prepare other dishes on request. The rooms are a little dark, the floor could do with a wash. Bathroom is OK.... More

Taprospa Tissa is a simple resort with a clean swimming pool on the banks of the serene Tissa Wewa lake. The drive from the resort to Yala National Park is about 45 mins. Since the resort is in a city, there are some options for food outside the resort in case you get bored of the resort menu. The staff... More
