Stunning Grounds and welcoming staff who go above expectations to ensure you have a great stay. Hotel, restaurant and pool area are lovely, set next to the large Mahaweli River. The staff are great, the food was good and the rooms were clean, spacious and traditional (could do with a little TLC and update - but this is not major...

This is a a very good hotel.In my view excellent in the following: service,room amenities, cleanliness, insect control, thoughtfulness in room layout and fittings. Food is good. The overall feel of the hotel captures colonial Ceylon, but in a modern way. Recommended.

The rooms were spacious and comfortable. They were old but clean. The service was friendly and the staff was welcoming. I stayed there with friends and we all enjoyed our stay. The breakfast was excellent.

We stayed two nights here. Location is very nice, right on the river. Property is quite old and it shows. Furniture could be replaced with new one. Balconies are very pretty overlooking the pool etc. In room dining was delicious and good value for money. Breakfast buffet was not on par with 5-star standards. We found a hair in one...

A very dowdy hotel. Old but not quaint. Pool area and surrounds are the only good part. Mosquitoes are a major problem and I wonder if the ever fog. Trying to get service around the pool is terrible. Maybe they think you're just waving away the mozzies. Lucky for me a pool attendant kindly went to get a waiter. It...

This was touted as a 5-star property, but that is not the case. It is not a bad hotel, but hard to accept when it is claiming to be something much grander. The pool area is very beautiful, but the public areas look very dated and cramped. You have to walk through the bar/lounge area to access the hotel rooms....
