This was among the best of the 7-8 hotels we stayed at during our Sri Lanka travel. Large and comfortable rooms; Welcoming and smiling staff; The corridor leading to the rooms was laid with tasteful artefacts; A small wooden bridge that spanned the pool gave it a quaint touch. BTW, the pool is quite large and clean. The dinner spread... More

We had issue with the buffet food temperature. Even at 19:30 dinner start time, food in the chafing containers was at best lukewarm. There was no provision for any warming, so the food cooled down. Several fellow travellers experienced stomach bugs. Restaurant staff seemed unconcerned with the problem. Our Mercury tour rep. did nothing also. You have been warned. It... More

We stayed two nights in October. Our room was very big and had a lovely shower room. The pool is nice and kept pretty clean. The bar was not open when you would expect 7pm as the staff member was having their dinner. We had the buffet on the first night which was ok, but in the second night there... More

We had a late dinner at Mandara Rosen Hotel last night. Really enjoyed the meal - a great menu selection from string hoppers, rice to spaghetti bolognaise. A great dessert selection as well. We enjoyed it. Good service! We stayed in another hotel but plan on staying at Mandara Rosen on our next visit.

Amazing property, spacious rooms and bathrooms. No wifi in the rooms! Great swimming pool too. Only thing is you have to walk interior to get in to your rooms, and no lifts too. Getting your baggage in and out takes time, so plan for that when are checking out in a rush.

We spent 2 nights here, but to be honest 1 would probably been enough. The room was very nice but the shower room needed an upgrade. (There was no ventilation in the shower room which probably didn't help) There was a nice patio with 2 sun loungers which was not overlooked. The pool was nice but very hot as it... More
