“Fantastic Start to our Sri Lankan Holiday”
Reviewed 4 June 2014

Fantastic place to start our vacation. Would highly recommend it.
Upon arriving after a long trip from Colombo we were greeted with cool towels and ice cold juice. We were taken to our room which again was lovely. Only a few ants in the bathroom but nothing we couldn't deal with. Breakfast and the Buffet dinner was amazing, such a wide variety and of great quality. Would love to go back.
Wait staff were polite, friendly and prompt.
Pool was amazing. I would love to go back for a dip right now!

This is the place where me and my family love to be during our holidays. You can relax at your best and food is super. Love their home made ice creams.

Be with the nature while you enjoy the wind blowing from the near by tank. Elephant habitat is 30 mins drive in Minneriya National Park.

This was one of the best hotels during our trip in Sri Lanka. It has a nice garden, beautiful lake with amazing views. Room was quite big with wi-fi in the room. The staff offered good service and there was good choice of food for breakfast and dinner.

If we will go back to Sri Lanka, we will definitely stay here once again.

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).
