we called as party of our morning with the Elephants, the viewing platform is exceptional with regard to views and the chance to watch the elephants play in the river. Food and drinks are available, we only chose drinks but all was surprisingly well priced...More

Nice tasty Sri Lankan food with a view of the elephants bathing in the river, I felt prices are high but good restaurant.

Whilst eating our food, which was very good and reasonably priced you can look over the balcony and see the elephants bathing.

Take note, this hotel is for very short stays, no wardrobe, beside that we had room 101 looking over the river where you can watch elephants in the river, nice restaurant with limited menu and wine list, staff excellent

Great service. Food reasonable and good. Amazing place to watch the elephants bathing and playing. I would highly recommend compared to the ‘pub’ next door

From this hotel you get the wonderful view of chained and beaten elephants! Do not go here!!! Go and see elephants in the wild happy and free!!!

Had food that was cold and overpriced. Suggest going for a drink if you are there to watch the elephants bathe. It is a great sight seeing over 30 elephants lumbering to the river for their shower and this is a great place to watch...More
