“Nice big green rooms!! Nice staff!”
Reviewed 5 November 2013 via mobile

We stayed here for 2 nights as we had to visit Polonaruwa and Sigiriya. We had a big green room with a matrimonial bed and a single one. The rooms are clean and the bathroom also. You also have good wifi that works better out of the room.
The food was great and they have reasonable prices! The hotel is in the middle of the nature so you have a big garden. We also had AC but we didn't use it because it was not that hot in the room! Overall, nice place and nice staff!!

This is a little slice of heaven. Cool rooms, big comfy beds, nice clean bathroom and fantastic accommodating owner. He sorted out our elephant ride at a very good rate and sorted out his brother who is a tuktuk driver to take us around for the day. would definitely stay there again!!

This was a lovely place to stay. The location is amazing, the staff were friendly, food was tasty and it's close to sigiria.

The problems were small, but numerous. Our double room was just two beds pushed together (with separate mosquito nets, not great when you're on a honeymoon!) . The water didn't work for the first two hours of our arrival, and the big shower didn't work at all. You had to pay for WiFi, and there was no kettle in the room (so we couldn't boil drinking water or make ourselves tea).

But still a lovely place to be, if they sorted out those few issues it would be amazing!

This place is set on acreage, quiet, peaceful and charming.lots of birds and animal noises which adds to the jungle experience.
Really comfortable rooms, a/c and non, optional.
Fabulous views of Lion Rock from our balcony through the tree canopy.
Very helpful and friendly staff, attending to all our requirements.
The food in their restaurant was as good as we have found around Sri Lanka. Very good curries. A reasonable breakfast, nice plate of fresh tropical fruit. Eggs& toast, and tea coffee.
Friendly attentive staff. Highly recommend.

Room Tip: Upstairs for views and cool breezes. All rooms face the Rock.

Stayed here for one night.
Room are simple, but clean. Bed was very comfortable. Around the hotel there is a garden with different flowers and trees.
We ate at the hotel restaurant. The food was very tasty, portions really huge.
Minus: they tried to charge us more that was agreed for the room.

The hotel is well located for visiting Sigiriya Rock, it's only a 15 min walk away. It is quite isolated and doesn't have a pool so it can be a bit boring in the evening. The rooms are pretty basic but the bed was decent and we got a good nights sleep. We had dinner and breakfast here and both were quite good. The reason I'm giving it 5 stars is because the manager went out of his way to order the premium sports channels in the restaurant when I asked if they were showing the football. I thought this was a nice gesture as all I did was enquire if they had the channel. Overall we found the staff very friendly and this was good value for money.
