“nice place!”
Reviewed 29 March 2014

This place is outside Tissamaharama, about 20 minutes walk to the centre. We liked the location: quit and a 10 minute walk to the lake, which is a really nice walk and the lake is gorgeous.
An old lady is running the place. She is really friendly and makes really good food. Though the price is a bit steep for the food, I think it is worth the price.
The room was 3000 rupee including breakfast, we had the room with the colored glass which was good for us.
The Yala national park tour was 5000 rupee. Which was a fair price. Our driver/guide was really looking for the animal and gave us enough time to make pictures.

We only stayed for one night, just because our Yala morning safari which we organized through the hotel (5500/person incl entrance fees) Pros: nice and honest hostess, good food, nice surrounding (beautiful lake nearby), garden to relax. Cons:worst mattresses (barley slept because they are so thin), check out too early-before you are back from the safari, so you have to leave the room at 5am. Plus, the food in our safari lunch box was not what we had ordered but something different.

The grandmother who runs the business offered us a tea for free but after charged us 300 rupiees!! We else ordered 2 curd with honey and she charged us 500 + 80 service fees rupiees. All food is extremely overpriced there. she gave us only 1 towel and a very little blanket. Room ok but was full of mosquitos.

We have stayed in standard A/c room in the said guesthouse ! The location was average ! This guesthouse is run by one old couple,who have six rooms and out of this six,two rooms have been given to agoda ! The room quality was not good enough ! Suprisingly,hot water is chargeble at the rate of Rs.500/- ! The breakfast was very basic and limited ! The old couple was very rude in behaviour with the tourist,particularly the old lady ! Their son is staying at some different place ! Only good thing is the cheap price and it is okay for a night stay only if you are visiting Yala National Park !

Room Tip: This is small guest house having six rooms and run by a old couple ! Rooms are very basic and breakf...

I paid 1k rupees off seson. Chicken curry was great but overpriced (550). Negotiate a lot about safari. Servis was good and Mihisara was really nice and welcoming. Wifi was fast enough. They have loundry near by. Good to stay just for one night if u wanna do just safari. There is not much things tp do around. Jan

We payed 1200 rupees for the 3-bed room, and then at 8pm they decided to move us to the double bed room, which was a very unpleasant request, especially regarding the fact that the room stayed empty the whole day and a half after, until we left.

The double bed room was 1000 rupees, which is about 9 US dollars. Pretty far from the 35 US dollars written on this post.

The "restaurant" serves a few dishes, between two to three times more expensive than the prices 100 meters on the main street, and even other Guesthouses were cheaper. For example- rice curry is 500 Rupees, on the street restaurants it's between 120-240 Rupees.

Its funny that the place is called Lake View, im not sure which lake they are talking about, but the closest one is a 20 minute walk!

It felt as if no one in the family cares about you at all. Gives a really unwelcoming feeling, and literally it's the whole family.


The only reason we stayed for two nights is the price.
