Our guide had booked us for White Water Rafting and also booked hotel. What an amazing location this is. On rivers edge, we could take photos of hubby and son in law coming down the river. Our rooms were very Colonial with an amazing balcony overlooking the island, which had water buffalo on. The restaurant had great choice, but service was not the best. Shame really, because it was the staff that let this gem down. Having said that I would return, just for where it is. The film, Bridge over the River Kwai as partly filmed here and the old bridge that was built for the set is still in place. There is also a private collection of Vintage Rolls Royces here, pretty cool.

Room tip: Ask for a river view room with balcony

We stayed here for one night while rafting during our holiday in Sri Lanka. It has a prime location, looking out over the river and many rafting journeys end at the hotel. Our rooms were 3 and 4, directly beside the reception. The rooms were dark, the blinds had to be drawn all the time as the car park was just outside the windows at the same level. The bathrooms were very basic. The highlight of our stay in the hotel was a guided tour of the car collection by a car-passionate young member of staff. Amazing old cars with some history attached! We felt the hotel is in a time lapse - there is great potential but it's not happening. Staff were lovely.

A pleasant smallish hotel near the river and the rain forest. The staff were good and the rooms basic but OK.
The restaurant overlooked the river but the set menu was very Western but if asked served good Sri Lankan food.
White water rafting is near by and most rafts conveniently ended their trip at the hotel.

We didn't stay here, just had a nice stop for tea on our road trip. Pretty views, decent food, a nice place to stop for tea. Had fried rice with curry chicken, can't go wrong but nothing special considering the others I've tasted. A little watery and not spicy, watered down for the European palate I'd guess. And savory noodles with chicken. Which was oddly delicious. Could have gone for some sambal, but service wasn't so great so was easier just to eat and smile. Tea wasn't fresh but still hit the spot. The view and quiet of the place made it well worth the 1750 rupees and was a nice respite from the windy road trip.
