“Good hotel, just not a very nice city”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 January 2014

We stayed here for 2 nights. At first we wanted to stay for 3, but the town was just so different from what we were used to - the climate, the people were different, it was like you are not in Sri Lanka anymore. The hotel is a very big house a very tasteless building inside and out. The room for 2 with no view cost us 3000 Rs with breakfast. The room was basic with a small bed that 'fits' 2 and a nice new little bathroom with hot water. The room has no heater though. The staff is very nice and helpful, would even bring you a heater or anything else you need. There was no mosquito net, but also no mosquitos :) The boss is a bit weird drives this new truck and looks like he is in the mafia.

Room Tip: Take one of the rooms that have a view of the lake!

We made a reservation for a triple room in this hotel for one night after seeing nice reviews. The hotel looks cute from outside, but inside is a nightmare. As soon as we entered to the hotel, we could see a dining table with food (breakfast) left, which was not cleaned after eating, with lots of flies! We wanted to see the room we reserved first and there was a very strong smell when opened the room. The room was moldy and looked very basic. We decided immediately to leave since the smell was so strong and terrible.

Would not recommend to stay there at all!

When we caught a taxi to the hotel the driver said us that it's a very nice place. And it's true.
This is a new hotel and I can recommend it for all. It's a very beautiful house with an interesting interior. Rooms are big and clean. Breakfast was very tasty. The owner of the hotel is a very nice guy. He helped us in all things and did do for us more then we expected. He has a nice family.
All of us were happy staying here.
