    The grand reception is nice and the pool has a great view, but that's about it.

    The rooms are dilapidated and the furniture is old and broken. The food is terrible. The staff is not very reactive to requests.

    The view on the lake is really nice.

    Only one computer available for all the hotel.

  • Couple

    beautifull view on the lake and a very nice loby.

    For this type of rate charged by this hotel, internet/wifi should be free of charge. In cheaper hotels wifi is now a days most of the time free of charge, so this hotel is in the higher class, but charge you for internet. Breakfast should be improved. Price/quality balance is not correct taken the above mentioned points into account.

    GPS COORDINATES: spot on LOCATION: good for Minneriya Park and perhaps Pollonarruwa, great views from the balcony and terrace ROOM: spacious with balcony FOOD: excellent SUMMARY: This could be a great hotel should they renovate the rooms - it looks like it was not done for decades - old furniture and neglected bathroom.

    Bathroom was neglected, room not renowated, the pool is not worth the plunge. The price is too high for what you get - would they at least offer a free internet to sweeten the deal my opinion would be slightly better (internet 250LKR for 30 minutes, lobby area only)

    A beautifully quiet and tranquil setting. The staff were very personable, and eager to please. All the public areas were pleasant and the food was good.

    On our first night we were the only people in the hotel, which was a bit weard in January! We had the "best room" in the hotel, but the carpets were stained, the linen was a bit "grey" and the bathroom had a mixture of old fashioned furniture colours. A small frog under the soap one morning was a bit of a shock!! It appears the hotel was owned by a family who, once the parents died, did not look after the refurbishment - they recently sold the hotel and the staff are optimistic the new owners will be more proactive. Oh, the tv channels were very limited.
