    Do not accept room 108 !!. The room is probably like all others, but the location made for a VERY unhappy stay. I rated this the lowest of the 7 hotels I stayed in while in Sri Lanka. The room is located at the end...More

    Great design, facilities, staff and value - the Elephant Trail Udawalawa is charming too. It gives you the feeling of a jungle lodge but with all modern conveniences. Sugarcane fields line the backside of the property and a short ride along the road in front...More

    Room was nice, clean and good balcony to relax on. Although air con, kept turning off every 45mins, which was an issue over night!! Restaurant was good, had both lunch and buffet evening meal as nothing else much around. An ok price. Safari was excellent.
