This hotel exceeded our expectations. We had a quiet and spacious room with a lovely view over the lake which was dotted with fishermen and home to a large number of birds. The large swimming pool was lovely and very pleasant after hot and dusty game drives in the nearby Udawalawe national park. Food ( buffet style ) was plentiful...

We stayed here one night on a bike tour. This review is coloured by the rainy weather and an afternoon spent bumping around Yala Park.

We arrived at the hotel at night. The staff was friendly and the food wasn't bad. However the drinks and beverages at the bar were quite expensive. The rooms are comfortable and the view of the lake from the hotel is beautiful.
