“We stayed in 5 hotels in Sri Lanka in September 2008. The lack of tourists is affecting them all badly. With the hotels running at what seemed to be 25% capacity it can seem a bit quiet. Business seems better at weekends. In Sri Lanka more than anywhere else I have been the vast majority of staff were excellent; helpful “

However it feels like standards have been”
“This is a pleasant quiet hotel well placed for visiting Yala National Park which was unfortunately closed when we were there. However we went to Bundala and Debarawewa instead where we saw an amazing variety of birds some crocodiles elephants monitors etc. We were given a very spacious room with large bathroom and a private seating area.

“We were originally meant to go to Yala but it wasnt open on arrival i thought we had ended up in a very nice hotel until we were shown to the room. It was frankly the worst i’ve ever stayed in in my life! It was dirty had an awful smell bath fittings and tiles were broken very poor lighting”

“Unexpected hotel about 40 mins from Yala. Stayed here on Kuoni Ceylon tour. Lovely rooms-large and well appointed. Fantastic pool area with underwater music- beautiful to swim in at night. Super restaurant with good food- 4 course meal (table d’hote ) and coffee only 870 rupees- less than a fiver! Would definitely stay here again- especially as we were able”
