Tucked away from the main Bentota road, this little hotel (which is also the berth for the actual Boathouse on the Lake) has a lot to commend it. Quiet, peaceful and uncomplicated. Our room was a reasonable size, had aircon, fan and mosquito net for the bed - a sensible idea being so close to the lake and the broad... More

The property isn’t luxurious... More

The grounds are really lovely. The room are very clean with nice touches such as flowers. The hotel is quite secluded and private which is nice although it is necessary to get a three wheeler to the beach. The staff were helpful. The food was overpriced but excellent (if you say you want it hot it will be VERY hot).... More

Lovely and quiet, great breakfast and dinner (you need to bring your own beer or wine if you want to partake but they will happily refrigerate for you.) The rooms and bathrooms are very clean, having tea making facilites in the rooms... More
