“A good base for adventure”
Reviewed 7 August 2014 via mobile

This was our adventure part of the Honeymoon. We were well located for activities around the area. We are sooooooo glad we did not go all inclusive as the buffet was enough after the first night. The food is brilliant for a buffet but it felt a bit like 'feeding time'. We ate out most nights at local restaurants to get a real feel for Sri Lanka cuisine. One restaurant to try is Mihini, the owner Thissa really looked after us. On the last night we did the private BBQ in the treehut and this was special, great views and great service from our chef and waiter - he knew it was our last night and prepared a special breakfast for us the next morning. Rooms are ok, we had a couple of visitors in the form of bugs but totally expected as you are in the middle of a nature park. Kept clean daily and the staff are very quick to respond if you need anything. Grounds are nice with lakes and lots of spots to sit down and enjoy a cocktail. I would recommend as it's a really central place to stay but it's not luxury accommodation.

We spent 2 nights at the cinnamon lodge. Rooms and facilities were good. Good spread of food, chefs experimentation with different flavours of ice cream was excellent! All staff are very friendly and helpful
Overall, good value for money

We stayed for 2 days and we are still astonished of that great ambience and great hotel. We had rooms 54&53, which were located close to the lake. The hotel is well managed and almost everybody was friendly and helpful, maybe at dinner, the waiters could not provide the same performance with a smile. But honestly, no deal. I dont need a smile from everyone to feel good. If you look into the details, you recognise how difficult it is to keep all corners clean in that climate.
We can really recommend this hotel for a stay in sri lanka. Well located to visit sigiriya, polonaruwa and mineriya national park.

We spent 3 nights here at the start of our trip. We were in a 2 bedroom suite which was lovely and very comfortable. The staff were all very friendly and efficient. One evening we had a meal in the speciality restaurant which was good but what was outstanding the private bbq on our own little island with our own chef, excellent. The buffet was also good.I would happily stay here again.

Room Tip: Rooms overlooking the lake have a nice view.

The thing about lodges is that they tend to be not so well maintained. The grounds are huge, and as such, it is a bit dirty. The pathways and stairs to the lodges could use a good sweep everyday.

The thing that annoyed me is that the bathroom, which is an indoor bathroom, not an outdoor one as ypu have a lot in Asia, has windows without glass, just a mosquito net. So the difference in temperature between your aircon room and the bathroom is uncomfortable.

Pool is amazing. Great for doing laps. Strange there was no gym though.

Not sure I would return.

We had a two night stay here and really recommend it. Overlooking the lake, it is in a beautiful setting with lots of monkeys roaming! Really spacious and well appointed rooms. Food was good and the children loved the 'sweet room'! One of my favourites in Sri Lanka!

The hotel is a good base for exploring the surrounding area: we visited Sigiriya, Polonnaruwa, Minneriya & Dambulla. The hotel is in a lovely setting, and it's well worth a walk along the lakeside. The rooms and restaurant were good, and the swimming pool is a decent size.
