My friend and I stumbled upon this hotel by chance and are so glad we did,
We needed a place to stay for 2 days last minute and the manager/owner and staff made the stay comfortable, relaxing and couldnt have helped any more than they did.
The view of the lake is stunning especially at sunset and to have breakfast (a very nice breakfast too) with that view was a real treat.
The rooms were large and had everything i needed.
Amit at front of house was friendly, helpful and professional and I wish him well with all that he does, a true asset to the hotel.
All in all a nice,a reasonably priced place to stay if youre doing a safari or visiting the area.

We spent 1 night in this hotel just for the Yala Nat Park. The facility is basic but sufficient. Agree with some other reivews saying maintaince needs to be addressed. The hotel is by the lake and has a garden. It was very nice to sit in the garden and had several drinks and watch sunset. The view was very beautiful.
Staff is friendly and helful.
Overall, we found it was comfortable.

We recently stayed at Lake Wind for two nights whilst doing safaris in the area like I gather most people would do.
The staff were friendly, efficient and eager to please and the supplied meals were good. Possibly a written menu would have been helpful for lunch choices but overall we were happy with the quantity and quality of the food.
The view is lovely and the hotel has a nice outside area to eat whilst enjoying the surrounds. The pool area was fine, could have done with a tidy up but nice enough to lay around.
The major issue with this hotel is the maintenance or lack thereof which is a shame. The rooms are nice and large as with the bathrooms but things are broken, lights not working, tv not working, tiles lifting, etc. We had to be moved due to poor lighting and then ended up in a room with no working TV. It wasnt worth moving again so we just left it but I suggest the lights and the TV will still not be working for the next customer. Not sure whether it is lack of funds or lack of care but I would hesitate to recommend this hotel to others.

We stayed here on 18 Oct 2017 and when you enter the hotel it does look a bit outdated.

The rooms are clean, plenty of Hot water, good AC but the FOOD is excellent.

WE had the 4 course evening meal and the presentation and flavours were exceptional for a hotel of this size.

Thanks to all the staff and particularly the Manager for making our stay memorable.

Room Tip: ask for a lake view I think all the rooms might have this

Stopped by for lunch after pre ordering. The food was reasonably good and there were a few pleasant surprises like roasted pumpkin soup, pork curry and watalappam.

It's quite a distance away from the main road and down a narrow bumpy road. It appears to be an illegal construction built over the thousands of years old archaeological rampart.

The hotel doesn't look like a good place to stay. Many rough edges and zero finer touches. There is a deck with a open view over the lake but the chairs on the deck are dirty and not fit for sitting. Although the Hotel is by the Lake it's not a bathing spot. just the scenic view.

Alcohol is available
