A bit of a splurge for the budget traveller, but if you want a dependable place to stay im Batti, I think this is it. Lovely location next to the lake. Hotel standard cleanliness and service. Great views from the rooms. Recommended.

My family had lunch here and the food was very good and priced very reasonably. The crab curry was excellent :) The hotel restaurant was very clean and the service was also very good. The place was recommended by HTCey Leisure.

I am not sure you could think of a better location than where Hotel East Lagoon is. It is adjoining to most famous Batticaloa lagoon. You could expect beautiful scene during evening and morning thanks to above. Rooms are spacious and staff was friendly. But the food was below average and we did not have a buffet during a weekend...

We stayed here 2 nights. The hotel has a nice location, in between the 2 lagoons so from almost every room you have a great view! Rooms are big and comfortable, thought it's nothing special. Staff is really friendly, breakfast is good: they have a Singalese buffet and you can order eggs with toast. They also have a swimmingpool but...

Comfortable rooms & the rates are worth for money. WiFi & other facilities are available. Environment especially the lagoon view is very beautiful. Flexible check in check out time is very helpful to the guests. Staffs needs more training. Food is definitely not worth for money. Conference hall is good. It is currently the comfortable hotel in town.

I stayed one night in the hotel . Good food . very Friendly staff , No wifi , The hotel overlooks a beautiful and magnificent view But I think the main problem of the hotel is the lack of proper marketing to it, which led to the non-existence of customers, leading to the provision of bad service in order to...

This hotel is best suited to business men who need a place to sleep and who don't notice the dirt. I was very disappointed by the check in process which was not friendly. We struggled with our bags on our own. The room was on the top floor with stunning views of the lagoon but the balconies were dirty ....
