Stayed for one night. Room large and comfortable with air conditioning. Balcony with seats overlooking the grounds. The bed was large and very comfortable. Bathroom decor very impressive with a large showing area. Dining room is large with the chef cooking what meats you would like cooking for your meal. Good selection of food for both breakfast and evening meal. Lovely pleasant hotel
We choose this property to celebrate our 10 wedding anniversary. We were welcomed by open heart by the front office. Evening the hotel arranged a special table on pool side with a beautiful decorated cake and Champaign. They made our evening so special and memorable.

Not Quite 5 Star
My partner and I stayed here for two nights. This is the most expensive hotel in Udawalawe - very close to the National Park however I don’t believe the quality of the property and the facilities justify the price. Definitely not my definition of 5 star. The rooms are average at best and the air conditioning was so loud we had to turn it off overnight to sleep. The ambience in the restaurant is awful (I felt like we were eating in a hospital cafeteria) and several dishes on the menu were unavailable. The second night, we requested dinner by the pool, took our own Bluetooth speaker and created a better dining experience for ourselves (I’d suggest the property utilizes this space for dining and entertaining more often as it’a a very nice area). A great view of the surrounding plains can be seen from the rooftop, but there aren’t any lifts. We had our driver with us and at check in he was informed there was no accommodation for him so he had to find alternative lodging. When we questioned this at reception, we were told the hotel does not provide driver accommodation. Subsequently, in speaking with another couple we found out there was in fact driver accommodation however it was not available for ours as we’d booked through a third party travel website. Not impressed about being blatantly lied to by the staff. Generally though the staff were very friendly. In summary, I felt the hotel was overpriced and has a bit of work to do around improving its service offering. I would stay elsewhere next time I visit Udawalawe.
Beautiful two nights
We booked 3 rooms for 2 nights for our family and enjoyed the stay as much as possible. We were given rooms next to each other and rooms were new and beautifully built. Buffet was available for every meal except on the departure day breakfast since the hotel was running low occupancy. It was a beautiful touch that the Manager (new to the hotel) came to the dinner table to ask if everything was ok. He even considered our request for a late checkout for extra one hour for all 3 rooms. I would like to thank the Front Office team, Subash FOM, Dhanuka Supervisor, Lovely reception guys Miuru, Pabasara, Nuwan and the hard working bell boy Buddhika for the amazing hospitality. Also a big shout-out to the Restaurant team, Supervisor Attanayake and Shameera along with the hostesses Madara and Hansani for the wonderful service given during our meal times. They were too kind to arrange us a special table outside which we had to cancel due to the rainy weather. Kitchen staff was also smiling and willing to serve our every need. No hotel can be successful only in giving luxurious facilities and it is the staff of the hotel who add a value to the product by giving their fullest support at work. Sometimes just a little smile can change the whole mood and bring u a beautiful day and I am sure you will find that beautiful smile here. Best wishes from Gayathri with much love!
