We stayed here for 2 nights as part of our honeymoon trip. We were doing a jungle trek around sri lanka for 5 nights. The hotel is pitched on top of a hill with amazing views over Giritale lake. There is wildlife all around the hotel. Signs in the room to close windows because monkeys will be cheeky and come...

The hotel is quite old, you can hear everything your neighbours do, but the view is magnificent. The food and service are quite good. Wifi is free only in the lobby. Nice swimming pool with great view to the lake. There is nothing around, the hotel is very isolated in the middle of the nature. Good value for the money.

Not too much to say about this hotel - staff could do with some customer relations training as the greeting was not the best - the food was 7 out 10 and the rooms where dated - however they were clean and tidy

But the rooms are small, the bathroom are small, the food is average to below average. The staff is typical old school. There is nothing to...

We enjoyed an inspirational stay at this hotel! The sunset, sunrise and full moon views over the picturesque lake were absolutely breathtaking! Our hotel room was a charming 80's mountain chalet style of architecture with timber lined walls and cathedral ceilings. It was on the top level and had sensational views from the original timber framed windows (we witnessed an...
