There are lots of these roadside places and our driver seems to have his selection obviously based on him getting fed for free I expect but they have been inexpensive , clean, ok toilets and good wholesome local food, always a Sri Lanka curry selection buffet. This is one of the better ones we came across. Great if you want... More

Just opposite to the famous botanical garden the erection sits proudly and presents its facade in a glamorous manner to the public on the peradeniya road. The building itself is very old nevertheless they had managed a fair effort in restoring the establishment (but looks like they had given it up middle way) One thing that clearly stands out is...

This is right in front of Peradeniya Botenical Garden. Nice and calm place. Good swimming pool. Rooms also very comfortable. I would give five star, only because we had to change our room twice due to broken tv and broken bed. Foods are delicious. Big variety of foods in buffet.

I took this place because my wife want to stay their. When you saw the hotel from out side , it looks like a restaurant but when you checked in it is totally different. The rooms are big, clean and comfortable. Food is also good, Bar is their and it is a public bar.

We stopped here for a quick lunch on a road trip to the Sri Lankan Highlands. The beer was cold and that's the best I can say. Service was slow but that is probably just "island time." We sat in an un-air-conditioned porch with very poor lighting. We ordered a mixed grill of ham, beef, seafood and fish along with... More

Used the wash rooms. The bathroom seat had a stain. The wash rooms were ok. Ordered some food from the menu. Seer fish and a rap. Nothing great just ok. It took along time to bring the food. Food wise service wise could improve a lot.

This is the only accessible restaurant on Peradeniya hospital area and Galaha junction. The hotel staffs are so ignorant to serve and prices are bit expensive.
