Was here with the family and we had 3 rooms. The hotel has 55 rooms, Spa and the staff is friendly. We had lunch, dinner and breakfast and food was tasty. Location- It's right middle of the town so it's easy excess. Recommend stay for a nice clean and cosy atmosphere.

What a charming place. From the welcoming tea to the attentive and friendly staff, we had a really great stay. With large and spotless rooms this expansive and maze-like hotel grew on me more every second I discovered a different area. The hilltop garden is wonderfully calm, my room had a lovely view of Bandarawela and the mosque wake up...

A hotel of contrasts where the pros outweighed the cons. Our room had no safe or coffee facilities & the bathroom was oddly shaped. However, we enjoyed our stay here immensely.

Lovely little place to stay. It seemed like sections of the hotel had been bolted on over time without much planning creating a delightful maze of rooms, lounges, the restaurant. Staff were very friendly. Would have liked to stay longer.
