Notice that there is no WI-FI at all here. We were THE ONLY GUESTS. In low season much reduced staff. When arrived we were told that our room was ready but to our surprise wall-to-wall carpets were wet, fridge unplugged, A/C switched off on a mains switch which was unreachable without standing on a chair. A war to get just...

Nothing to say good. Only rooms are comfortable. Food and service, both are terrible. Pool with damaged tiles. Unprofessional staff. But surroundings are very good and lovely climate. Easy visit more attractive places. Drive from Gampaola town is the most enjoyable part. Try this place at least to have a experience. Kothmale Radio, Kothmale Dam and Mahaveli seya (Dageba) are...

We stayed here for four nights. What struck me most was the unspoilt beauty of the region. Meals were good and the staff helpful. Rooms are basic, but large, comfortable and clean. The on-site swimming pools were a huge bonus after a hot, busy day.

This hotel or rather motel I would say, is not maintained at all. The floor is very dirty. The pool looks horrible. The rooms are not maintained. No TV is working. Actually there was...

Small issues here and there like water heater not working and AC not in order but all were attended when informed.(The management could have been proactive). Services could be...

we went to this place after reading reviews from travelling helping sites. It was awful and traumatizing. The rooms are exactly as in the picture and that's it. Bathrooms were very basic. We wanted to stay for 2 days but we cut our trip short to one day. Food gets delayed for ages. They asked us what time we need...

It was situated in a nice location. Hotel management has not done anything else to make the stay pleasant. We booked three rooms. Some rooms had a smell and bed linen was stained. They changed them on request. Some lights were not working. Two telephones were not functioning. Televisions had only one channel and that also was not seen (according...
