Reviewed 2 June 2014

Just stayed for one nights on 31st May and 1nd June 2014. Really enjoyed our stay along with my office friends. The hotel is in a great location for seeing the local sights and with an amazing pool a welcome retreat after hot and sweaty sightseeing. Our room was perfectly nice, but our bathroom is not clean and it's smelly. food was very average compere to Chaya Teanz Hikkaduwa. The fruit juices were horrible as was the fresh fruit selection....or should I say the tinned fruit selection. but young trainee chef help us lots and gave us a good service thanks for him.

Overall still enjoyed my stay . Staff great and monkeys and pool lovely. Do not be put off by minor things like breakfast buffets.Great fun and again the staff were amazing - but less quantity on the food and more quality please. Steak, shrimp, lamb,pork, fish and loads of other stuff. A ridiculous amount of food and the steak was so overdone that we could not eat it. Great idea but focus more on quality!

I still recommend it.

Its a great older hotel, with lovely ambiance, stunning gardens and very cute little cottage style rooms. We stayed at Cinnamon Lodge almost 10 years and not a lot has changed, it was still a wonderful experience. The beds felt a firmer this time around, but the rooms are comfortable, clean fairly spacious, even with an additional bed in the room. We also had a couple celebrate their anniversary during our stay and the staff added some gorgeous touches to our dinner table and clapped and cheered when the cake was cut. The buffet breakfast and dinner is absolutely divine. The live cooking stations, consisting of pasta, fresh salad, hoppers to name a few really were a highlight. We stayed for three nights and each evening the menu changed slightly and added inclusions of sushi and the shawarma station, were a real hit...we honestly couldn't get enough. We paid a visit to the farm and watched the gardeners joyfully completing their daily work. Was a really pleasant sight to watch. All the restaurant staff were so lovely and attentive. Always smiling. The room service children's menu is excellent. Close to some of Sri-Lanka's iconic attractions. A very pleasant stay. We will be back. Thank You!

Room Tip: Rooms closer to the lake would be better. At night the walk back to our room, located at the rear of...

For us, this best hotel (and restaurant) in Sri Lanka on our three week stay. We booked for two nights and had to stay for three as we couldn't bring ourselves to leave.
Friendly, respectful, courteous and helpful staff. Beautiful room, comfortable bed, good aircon.
Lovely grounds to wander through filled with a big lake, birdlife, monkeys (which will leave you alone if you leave them alone) and the odd lizard.
The pool is great, clean and warm and tended by attentive staff.
Possibly the best thing about the hotel was the food. Amazing buffet breakfast, good a la carte menu and a mind-boggling buffet dinner, which was of a quality we did not expect - top notch.

Only think i didn't like was going to check out and finding that hotel had charged my credit card for the stay when I wanted to pay in cash. Also, the rooms are located in separate villas (one ground floor, one top) and you can hear faint noises from above. We didn't have an issue, but worth bearing in mind. (Finally, for those not fond of monkeys...there is a group of them at the hotel but they are totally harmless and keep to themselves, and you can just give them a wide berth).

It was our anniversary too and the hotel gave us a complimentary cake which we enjoyed. The food was excellent and the buffet was well arranged with many live stations. The surrounding jungle area and the lake beside it makes your stay a very pleasant one. Excellent facilities. We had a visit to the hotel's farm, the vegetation and the Butterfly garden nearby. Anyone who visits SRi Lanka and those in Sri Lanka should not miss this wonderful place.

Room Tip: Higher floors have balconies from where you can do bird and animal watching.

The hotel is situated in a central location with accessibility to many attractions historic sites and to forest reserves.
The comfortable living space with delicious food along with the friendly staff make my holiday enjoyable through out the stay. Also ample garden space bordering to the lake adds to the beauty of the surroundings. While relaxing you have options of elephant rides, cycling and even trekking through the wild sanctuary.

Would recommend to whoever looking for peaceful, relaxing and enjoying holiday.

Room Tip: Select rooms closer to lake and choose top floor of the chalet for better view.

We stayed three nights in this beautiful hotel and I would stay longer in the hotel and the area. Location by lagoon is fantastic with plenty of wildlife around including very playful monkeys. Food is very good and loads of options and welcome was great. Rooms are lovely as well. Welcome is great - cinnamon smelling cold towels to combat the heat - lovely touch.Highly recommended.

A repeat visit to this beautiful hotel. It just gets better every time. After spending 14 days travelling around Sri Lanka we enjoyed 5 days here to relax. We cannot fault it at all. Just perfect. Lovely clean spacious room overlooking the lake. Excellent restaurant, with a separate cold room for desserts. Polite, helpful staff. The grounds are fantastic, and when one of the gardeners realised we were birdwatchers he quickly wanted to show us his regular feathered visitors to the vegetable garden. There were some quite special birds hidden away in there.
So yes, it is a wonderful hotel, much improved since our last visit. We do love the fact it now offers all inclusive. Just makes life so much easier.
My only complaint is that too many people have discovered it. It was our own private little gem. But I understand why it is so popular. Simply a perfect hotel in every way. Thank you Cinnamon Lodge. We shall be back again I'm sure.
