After all the rave reviews I was slightly underwhelmed by our trip to Freedom Lodge. There had been a mix up with out booking before we travelled and I knew that the interconnecting rooms were not availablebut was told we would have two rooms next to each other which were the only ones on the top floor. This was not entirely correct as my children's room actually connected with another room (although it could be locked from the inside). I would recommend finding out exactly what configuration of rooms you have booked if travelling with a family. There was definitely a family atmosphere when we arrived mainly due to the Sri Lankan New Year celebrations and the fact that the owner had extended family staying. Disappointingly this meant that the hotel was not doing food so we ate at the Sharon Inn nearby (which was good). It was also a bit noisy and we felt unable to use the communal areas (there is a small garden and TV lounge). All that said, the rooms were clean, it was not expensive and the owner organised an excellent day trip and easy airport transfer. I would probably stay here again but would not have such high expectations.
