This hotel was unfortunately one of the worst ones we stayed in whilst we travelled through Sri Lanka. The food is a set menu and wasn't the greatest quality, the room was a bit outdated and the wifi doesn't work anywhere but reception (first world problem). However the pool was lovely and the drinks were cheap!!! I'm not by any... More

Sorowwa was our first night's stay in Sri Lanka. We had travelled for a few hours from Colombo to reach here and we weren't sure exactly where we would be staying (the travel agency had arranged this for us). As we turned off a dirt road into what seemed ike the back end of nowhere, Sorowwa hotel appeared. Overlooking a... More

The room we stayed in, had a lovely view overlooking the lake, the room itself was very well maintained and just had a very cozy feeling to it. People who enjoy nature would love it, as early in the morning, we took a walk around the lake and managed to see many birds. The hotel staff are really sweet and... More

Stayed here for three nights...what can we say? This hotel filled the criteria- most obliging, friendly staff, room overlooking the tank, elephants, excellent buffet style food. The room was very comfortable, bathroom with plenty of hot water, verandah to enjoy. Not too far away is a row of shops where the shopkeepers greet you as if you are the most... More

We stayed for two nights. The rooms are very generous in size with a beautiful view across the lake. Regularly saw the elephants walking past and monkeys visit the balcony. Would highly recommend the hotel

This Resort is in a beautiful location with a fresh refreshing breeze blowing across the lobby area of the hotel. The elephant back ride trail is a spectacular feature across the lake and to see this huge animal take its long strides along the bund is a one time experience. The rooms are well appointed with modern fittings and the... More

Stayed for two nights and the dinner and breakfast buffets kept getting worse as the day went on! Not friendly and very poor service. The food was cold and they never refilled any of the dishes. Sometimes they charged you for water and others were free!

The entrance to this hotel is through a very basic, rough track but when you arrive it is ideally located for its views of the lake and people taking elephant rides. There is also a touch of local colour in that the lake/stream immediately in front of the balconies is used by the locals for washing and laundry. The rooms... More
