A mixed experience

3.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed Sep 11, 2017via mobile
My husband and I stayed for two nights. On arrival I was very dubious about the hotel , it looked deserted and quite dingy. Our room was clean but in dire need of new linen and towels. We laughed as we had a Mickey Mouse bed cover ! Great view from our small balcony across the rice fields. The best thing was the staff , the pool and the food. We appeared to be about the only guests and our driver on leaving told us that the hotel owner is not keen on renovating as he is aged and in no need of $$. The garden is lovely and it's close to the sights for bike riding. All in all we enjoyed our stay due to the staff and their kindness. If you are looking for 4 star don't even consider this hotel .

I went there with my wife and two kids. To start off the room was NOT ready at 1pm which is there check in time. This is even after paying advance payment to the bank. They gave me several calls regarding my stay even after I confirmed that we are coming. The manager/ owner was shouting at the staff really bad in front of us which is not good. We did not order from their "Resturant " cuz they don't have good options and I found the prices were too much for what they offer. The beds were comfortable and the rooms were very spacious with a balcony. The ancient A/C was working. The bath room was clean and spacious with hot water. But the water flow was minimal. They have strict rules that you can't bring food from outside restaurants which too much I guess. Anyway the pool is very small and we did not try it out. They promised 4500 for the room charges but charged 5500. When asked the mangers said it can't be and the price is fixed at 5500. He never apologised for miscommunication. So we came back with mixed feelings. Well it's good place for a budget stay and don't expect anything more.

Absolutely amazing staff and hospitality, room was clean with hot water and magnificent view across the rice fields. Pool was perfect to chill around and cool off in. But the staff and food was the highlight. I definitely recommend for anyone looking for a great hotel at a very reasonable price

Located very close to all important buddhist sites yet bit isolated from the busy pilgrim rests. Good for relaxed sleep after a tiring visits around the area. It's cheap and relatively clean. Bit lonely if you travel alone.

Visited this hotel couple of years back. Budget hotel with minimum amenities and comfort in the rooms. However the prices are very reasonable for the given facilities. This hotel has a well maintained pool and a small garden as well. Staff is very kind and help full. Cook has a real talent to prepare Sri Lankan style curries and dishes (ppl who love spicy would like his dishes more). we enjoyed his meals during our stay.
