Very impressive given the price - the grounds and pool are lovely, the food is generous and hearty and the staff are friendly. Theres a beautiful view over the paddy fields of the sunset. Room was comfy with a/c, reasonable ensuite but the real star was the disco pool!

Great place to cool down in the pool after long walks around Polonnaruwa ruins. Amazing value for money, huge food portions, great breakfasts with peacocks visiting, and superb staff. Homely feeling with full amenities. Can't find a better place around than this. Also can take a bike to cycle down to the ruins for a day.

I stayed 4 nights in this hotel at the very end of my trip in Sri Lanka and it was the perfect place to relax. The swimming pool is always clean, the rooms are pretty big (biggest beds ever) and the curry is amazing! We ordered it every night and it was different each time, depending on the vegetables they...

Great location on the edge of this busy town in a quiet location, with lovely grounds and views of the surrounding fields and forests. Good size pool, well maintained, which was very welcome after a hard day's walking round the ruins in the heat. Food was good. Staff were all very friendly and helpful.

We stayed here twice during our 2 months in Sri Lanka. It was by far the best place we visited! Everyone here is extremy nice and helpful, the food is delicious and plenty (breakfast with everything you can imagine, Rice with 9 different Currys enough for 3). The Pool and Garden is very clean and beautiful! The rooms are nice,...

We stayed in the cottage by the pool side for 2 nights. The room was simple and clean and the perfect getaway from the hustle-bustle of city life. The sit out was great. The best part was the host and the amazing food they served. Mrs. Kumari and the Srilankan breakfast and dinner that she served were one of the...

Staff were very accomodating and the room was very clean. Good value for money and a wide selection of breakfast was provided. We only stayed for one night to see the sites around town and it was enough. The family are very lovely and can assist with information.

Mixed feelings about this place, so it depends what you feel is important if it is for you. Rooms were small & simple, and bathroom needs an update, but all is ok for the cheap price. Too bad that the mosquito nets are somehow to small to fit around the beds.... Views from the pool are nice, and the pool...

This is a great little place if you are traveling on a budget. It's a family run place and the owners are hands on at running it and accommodating of guest requirements. The exterior of the buildings might not look fancy, but don't let that put you off. The room and bathroom were very clean and well maintained, although the...
