Place is a dump. We chose the place seeing the high ratings it had. Dingy room with depressing colors. Hot water was not ac was. Power outage at 4 am and no back up meant our plans were ruined. No apologies proffered. Breakfast was a sweaty affair in the open. No fans. Avoid.

The hotel is between the Habarana junction and EcoPark (Trinco Road). It's a little bit set away from the road so you are not bothered by the traffic. We were a group of 7 and used 4 rooms. The rooms are big with AC, TV and free WiFi. There is plenty of furniture, even a small table where I could...

The hotel is a short way away from where the bus stops. Tuk tuk or three wheelie as they are also called will charge 100 rupees for the ride. The room was massive and clean. The staff most courteous and welcoming. There is water in the room which is complimentary. Breakfast was generous and included in the price. Dinner cost...

We stayed four nights here, using it as a jumping off point for various sites. The room was very nice. Big and spacey with a high ceiling and decent bathroom, the bed was big and comfortable and we had a terrace with tables and chairs to sit out. The first night we chose to eat in the hotel as we...

Spent one night here. Nice room with AC, very quiet. Wifi was hit and miss. Food was poor to average. Caretaker was pleasant. Hired a driver from here (Sarat(sp?)) for three days and he was excellent as a guide to the area and on wildlife - we would recommend him to others staying here. Great location for exploring the local...

Watch your head as you enter the bathroom! There is a step down from the bedroom into the bathroom and the door frame is low. Rooms are basic but spacious and clean. There is an air conditioner and an overhead fan. There is no hanging space but clothes can be draped over a rack. Breakfast provided. Certainly a central location.

Spent two nights here. Splendid location and ambience. Fruits are served fresh from the garden. We opted for vegetarian dinner and the food was excellent. Friendly and helpful housekeepers. Strongly recommended if you want to visit Habarana.

Excellent value for money. Considering it was off the main road it was set back and was surprisingly quiet. The manager and staff were very friendly and attentive. The local curry dinner was excellent. Room was spacious, clean and comfortable. Great location for visit to Kaudulla National Park.

We were a group of 8 (three families), and stayed at Habarana for three nights. This is a small but excellent hotel. We booked directly from their website and did not have to pay any advance. The owner, Mr. Nalika, is a very friendly and knowledgeable person, and tried to help us in every way to plan our trips around...
