On our trip to Kaudulla we had lunch in Rulmali Hotel. Although they offerd the usual buffet we had a la carte. Small menu with usual staff. Chicken was hard and dry. Not a Gourmet experince. A lot of tourists stopped here so drivers seam to get a good deal

We stopped for a beer, stayed for the delicious food, and came back again for the fantastic service. Hasintha the operations manager is such a nice guy and speaks excellent English. The food is good, the beer is cold, and lots of friendly vibes all around. Thank you!!

After a really tiring day and after being rather disappointed with the food and the level of cleanness in Sri Lanka, this was a great surprise for us. An amazing location with some really good Western type food- we had fish & chips (loved it!) and grilled chicken (bit more grilling needed!) over some beer. The service was excellent: hand-shake,...

We visited this hotel as part of our day trip to a national park. It was a buffet style meal which was explained to us by the guest relations manager Hasintha, who was exceptionally polite and helpful, describing the various dishes on offer they were quite spicy for one or two of our party but on the whole ok. The... More

Went for lunch, which was a good buffet with flavoursome food (above average compared to other places we've eaten, but not the best). Pricewise a bit high compared to elsewhere at 1100-1200lkr pp. Big touristy place, so not a nice & cosy restaurant.
