Views of the river are good. Restaurant is well located. Rooms with river view were large, reasonably clean but with smelly bathrooms, toilet that didn't work half the time. We stayed 3 nights and there was no room service eg no cleaning during that time. Be aware on weekends hotel used for large, loud weddings that don't last too long....

A group of us visited this old house converted to a tourist stop on two week-ends for breakfast and lunch. It is heavily patronised for meals by groups of foreign tourists on their way up-country. Unfortunately the place does not look orderly and has a rather shabby appearance. The meals in the restaurant by the Kelani River-side were average. Great...

Lovely old place in beautiful surroundings - on the banks of Kalani river. Staff at reception need customer care training though. When I came to check out and produced my visa card, one of the group of people at reception suddenly produced a sign, which had not been visible till then, saying credit cards not accepted and plonked it down...

The Plantation hotel in Kitulgala boasts a glorious past as is amongst others shown by the presence of a ‘Rolls Royce museum’.However this past is long gone and what remains is a mediocre hotel. The rooms are clean but sober, e.g. a safe is missing, which is especially poor as many visitors will go rafting during their stay and thus...

Having spent 2weeks in Sri Lanka this lunch stop was average at best. Quality average, some of buffet selections remained empty , soft drink selection limited. On top of this it was the most expensive lunch of the holiday. Riverside location only saving grace

If you're in for jungle and adventure, this is it! And if you're the typical traveller seeking the best accommodation and food, don't get your hopes up. The rooms are specious, a bit old and average however is great to ponder on the days activities. Food is good yet average, and they do have a bar. Now the good stuff,...

Initial perceptions are important, and the staff, while polite didn’t seem friendly or particularly interested in their customers, in fact most of the time I felt I was an inconvenience. Our room #1 was showing signs of age and whilst clean and comfortable also appeared to be old and tired. The restaurant staff at lunchtime were quite ’pushy’, and then...
