I stayed at this hotel at the beginning of my touring holiday in Sri Lanka, and could not find another hotel to surpass the quality and value for money of this establishment.
The hotel is superbly set overlooking a small pond and a lake in a peaceful area of Habarana. The hotel rooms where spacious, very clean and well-equipped; the rooms featured a mini-bar, safe, satellite television, telephone, hairdryer, and all the mod-cons in the on-suite bathroom.
The view from the glass-fronted bedroom and balcony was exceptional. From a room on the third floor, I was able to view the pond and lake with its wonderful wildlife. From the room and hotel foyer, I was also able to watch the local villagers bathing or washing their clothes in the water, and to my great surprise elephants walking back and forth as they gave tourist rides or as they were being taken to bed each night.
The public areas of the hotel were of a high standard and the staff were extremely polite and helpful. The hotel's restaurant had a wide selection of food whether you choose the al-carte or buffet meals. The food was kept hot (unlike many of the other hotels I stayed in in Sri Lanka).
Other amenities in the hotel included a swimming pool that was cleaned everyday, and free wi-fi. The hotel also has a spa, but I can't advise upon this. The hotel can also arrange an elephant ride around the adjacent lake.
