Tucked beside a lake, where time seems to have stood still!
Well appointed rooms, super food and a great pool to cool off! The property is well landscaped with a variety of flowers and plants. Good place to stop if you are visiting Yala and they pack a good breakfast that you can eat mid-safari!

Room Tip: Rooms away from the pool are quieter

Fantastic little place to relax before and after a safari. It has a pool to cool off in and great dinner menu - you must try the unawatuna prawns. Lunch menu is pretty simple.

The bungalow is excellently equipped. Great modern design.

Try to share a safari with other guests. They may be reluctant but it's silly to have 6 person jeep to just 2 people.

Literally couldn't find a flaw at this place. Exactly what i wanted with a clean, quiet B&B. Great sized room, large shower/bathroom and great food. It's also set back enough from the road and so little if any noise.

We used this place as a stop over between the Ella in central Sri Lanka and the beaches in the south and were more than happy to stay here. Would recommend to anyone looking for the same. Would have liked to stay longer and relax more but saved the relaxing for Mirissa beach and instead went to Yala national park.

Staff were extremely friendly, as is everyone I have come across in Sri Lanka, even a drunk I met in Kandy! Strong wifi in the lobby/restaurant area which was a change from the wifi in the mountains which speed was synonymous to the speed of a Sri Lankan tractor! AC was very efficient, perhaps even too much as i was fairly chilly during the night but who cares about that? Your in Sri Lanka - Go outside! :)

Overall - Great little hotel.

This lovely hotel is the best value for money so far! Amazing comfortable rooms, great western food and a nice pool to chill after the safari! Go for it!!! We spent 2 nights and are very happy to recommend.

As others have mentioned, this place is well off the beaten path. We got quite lost trying to find it and had to ask directions several times. Google Maps is not correct- nor, I believe- is the depiction of the map on the hotel's website!

The room was nice- good air conditioning, good bathroom, everything seemed clean. We were grateful for the mini-fridge and enjoyed the pastoral setting of the hotel. Watching the water buffalos and birds was a great way to spend the afternoon.

We hit a slight snag with driver accommodations. We had emailed ahead of time to make sure they had such arrangements, but when we showed up, they told us they didn't have accommodations for drivers. Fortunately, I had printed my email correspondence and showed it to them, after which they said they did have a place for our drive. I'm not really sure what that was all about...

Good value, pleasant stay.

Room Tip: Rooms further away from the pool and restaurant would be quieter.

Really liked our room, it was spacious good aircon and a comfortable bed. The pool looked lovely but we didn't get chance to use it. In a nice quiet location but it is a bit far from town. That being said transport can be easily arranged from the hotel into town. We also arranged a day trip with the hotel to the rock temple and kataragama which was excellent and reasonably priced too. They also helped us arrange a safari tour too! The breakfast was filling a balanced, but the dinner menu although vast was nothing too special but presentation of the food was always great! Overall a great stay and would certainly recommend!
