We had spent just over an hour walking around the Peradeniya Royal Botanical Gardens and stopped at the Peradeniya Rest House for a toasted sandwich for lunch. We were welcomed again by the same smiling elderly gentlemen who showed us to a table on the verandah. The sandwiches at the rest house are consistently very good and the prices, for... More

Just opposite of the botanical garden and next to the beautiful Peradeniya university. Nothing much to do in the hotel. Pool is good. Stayed in the suit room which was excellent. Breakfast is mainly sri lankan and it's fresh and good. Friendly staff. Worth stay!

Just opposite to the famous botanical garden the erection sits proudly and presents its facade in a glamorous manner to the public on the peradeniya road. The building itself is very old nevertheless they had managed a fair effort in restoring the establishment (but looks like they had given it up middle way) One thing that clearly stands out is...

This is right in front of Peradeniya Botenical Garden. Nice and calm place. Good swimming pool. Rooms also very comfortable. I would give five star, only because we had to change our room twice due to broken tv and broken bed. Foods are delicious. Big variety of foods in buffet.
