We stayed here the night we climbed Adams peak. We had a spacious, clean, comfortable room for four. It was less than ten minute walk to the base. Breakfast was good and you had a perfect view of the peak you just climbed. The most amazing part was how incredibly helpful the staff and manager were in sending me a...

The toilet moves when you sit on it and is not screwed to the floor, the shower looks about 100 years old, I did not even use it as I thought I would come out dirtier. Little to no plug sockets in the room. very noisy and not very clean. You can hear every sound in the hotel.

This was the worst hotel we stayed in while we were in Sri Lanka. On the good side, the staff were very friendly and willing to please, and the food in the restaurant was good, as was the service. We were in a low level room which was nothing special. The bed didn't have a full length sheet - the...

Wathsala Inn is a bit basic, but did the job - we were able to get to the starting point of our climb of Adam's Peak in no time. The views from the hotel were mesmerizing - from the lobby, we sat there for hours with a beautiful view of Adam's Peak and the surrounding scenery, really stunning.The restaurant served...

My husband and I stayed for only one night at Wathsala Inn. The room and bathroom are not fancy but adequate for a 1-night stay. We picked it because it was only a 10-minute walk to the beginning of the Adam's Peak hike. The best part of the hotel is the restaurant area and the huge open air views of...

This is a great location to climb Adam's Peak. The room, while very large, was filthy, though. Much construction going on. It is a grand old building, though. The floor mats and mosquito netting were beyond dirty - blech! The tankless water heater worked fine for the shower once I figured out how to turn down the temp. The food...

We would have loved to have a bit more time but only stayed one night for the climb of Sri Pada. The rooms were huge with a nice view. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Food at the restaurant very much enjoyed. Shower was only lukewarm but not a drama. Thank you!

We stayed here the night we walked Adam’s peak. The idea was to get some sleep before the climb started at 1am. The hotel is a building site and the room and beds were damp. I expect that was partially because all the rooms were open to the outside with the walls not actually reaching the ceilings. It was very...

Great location close to adams peak trail and vibrant atmosphere of travellers lodge. However, the rooms need a bit of love. Spiderwebs and 4 of their inhabitants in the shower, some other insect. Food ok and staff very helpfull. Fine if you just need one night of sleep and do not expect more.

We booked the "deluxe" room just because of the bad reviews we had read on Tripadvisor. It was a big room with balcony facing Adams Peak however the room was super cold we had to sleep in our clothes and two thick blankets and there was no warm water in the morning. The location is good just a short walk...
