“Never expected this comfort”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 April 2013

I was reluctant to book this hotel for my traveling in the area for three consecutive days. So I booked only one day and the other two I traveled all the way from Colombo. I now regret for taking the trouble of traveling with my colleagues from Colombo, when there was superb accommodation available. The rooms were extra large and had all the comforts of a five star hotel. Actually it is better equipped than a normal five star. The toilet fittings was very modern and exclusive. The rooms were very clean. The food was very good. And the best part is the hospitality shown by the staff. If you are looking for a hotel in Rathnapura do not hesitate, this is the best place.

This hotel have spacious, beautifully furnished, clean rooms with luxuary bathrooms. The kids loved the pool which has a very nice waterfall.

We all think everything was great, and best of all was the fantastic staff. So friendly and service minded. They brought us a table so we could have lunch by the pool, helped me to borrow an iron in the late afternoon when the laundry was closed and much more...

The restaurant serve very tasteful rice and curry with many small dishes. One day we saw the staff picking breadfruit outside the hotel, and in the evening they served a delicious breadfruit curry for dinner.

If I go back to Ratnapura, I would definitely chose this hotel again!

And if you need a driver, you should ask the beautiful woman in the reception. Her husband is a fantastic driver/guide!

This is a bit cheeky as we did not stay here. We relocated here for lunch because our tour guide was so unhappy with the Ratnaloka Hotel ( see my review on that ghastly place). We were supposed to lunch there but it was so dire we moved here instead. This place is amazing. We sneaked a look at the bedrooms which were very spacious and beautifully furnished. The furniture in the communal rooms is antique and the carvings have to be seen to be believed. I think this is a Heritage Home, which means it has retained its colonial architecture. I wish we could have stayed here. The staff were so helpful and polite and the food lovely.

Ratnapura is off the beaten track and you're more likely to find jewelry traders than tourists in this town. We wanted to stay there 2 days and carefully selected this hotel - its was a good choice. This place is equally used by tourists, local companies and business people. Modern, Asian style design.

The room are HUGE - and have bubble bathtubs, A/C and anything else you can imagine. They have very high ceiling which is nice. The service is outstanding (probably the best we had in SL) and we received a lot of attention from all staff members (the hotel was kind of empty but nevertheless...).

I must also add that our driver was super well treated there (tea in the room brought at 6 am) and loved it. The pool is nice and we met three little friendly frogs.

So i can only recommend it if you gor to Ratnapura.

Room Tip: Rooms on the higher floor have a better view (and a little bit less noise)
