The hotel is great. The rooms are very spacious. The panoramic view into the surrounding orchards is very pleasant. The Chef. Bharathi delighted us with his Indian Cuisine which all our European team members enjoyed thoroughly. He also explained the wonderful culture and heritage of the land. I am eagerly looking forward for my next holiday there.

Clean, spacious rooms. Beautiful pool, with nice grounds. Convenient to airport, just 15 minutes away. The breakfast buffet is incredible. Perfect intro to Sri Lankan food if you just arrived and if not you will have a great meal with plenty of selection.

Very good service and good value for money. Indian food in srilanka was good. As I am vegetarian so it is difficult to find good food in srilanka. In this case gate way food and service was excellent.
