Near to Yala National Park, nice surroundings, near the lake, nice swimming pool, classic dining. The staff was helpfull, but the second day there was a wedding, that needed all staff's attention, so the ordinary guests were not important anymore.

A nicely laid out hotel with a pool and good clean rooms. Close to Yala for safaris. Wifi was a bit erratic and sometimes got turned off so a I had to request it to be put back on. Food was unadventurous with the standard Chicken, Fish or Beef, curry or with chips. Beakfast was again standard and we had...

Much like the previous poster we were given the bait and switch by Total Travel Solutions. They are the ViaTour provider in Sri Lanka. Our photos speak for themselves. The place makes Motel 6 look like a palace. Broken windows, tons of mosquitoes and other live and dead bugs in the room, no wifi, poor breakfast, filthy bathroom etc. Waiter...

Had dinner with a friend & had a look around. Food was tasty typical Sri Lankan twist to all cusines. Value for money ...Dinner for 2 with Beer & Arrack cost Rs. 4200/=The facilities are basic but clean. Staff friendly & efficient. Ideal for cost conscious travellers for a one night stay.

Ok this place ain't the Ritz, we stayed as a family member had often used the place on his pilgrimage to the nearby temple, it's basic accommodation, it's not perfectly clean as per what I'm used to as a westerner but it is clean enough for a stop over, in fact far cleaner than the 5 star hotel I stayed...

Good points of this hotel include the location and excellent vegetarian curry. However, the pool is tiny, the value for money is not fantastic and the whole place could use a makeover. It was very noisy in the section close to the main reception, so not a fantastic night's rest. Overall, it was fine for one night, AC and mosquito...

The hotel area has windows that has never been cleaned. They are covered with wood and inside are dead bugs and dirt. You eat next to this. We got to the hotel late and asked if we can order sth. No problem but they weren't happy cause we ordered something light and not everything from the menu. The room is...

We only stayed in this guesthouse one night on our way from Ella to Galle. It had ensuite bathroom with hot shower. The room was air conditioned and had a ceiling fan. Outside the room you could sit on the balcony and see the lake. The waiter even bought us a cold beer to the balcony to drink. He was...
