    The buffet lunch was the best feature of this hotel, and it's location.

    Staff were inexperienced and completely untrained. No lights after dark in common areas after dark for reading. This hotel (considering the price) was a big disappointment. Would recommend green days hotel just next door - cheaper, has more character and better location.

    The hotel was very quiet as we were staying out of season but the staff that were there were amazing - very friendly and accommodating. Yes the hotel isn't the most luxurious or comfortable, but the rooms are large and clean and the staff were friendly...but you wouldn't really stay there for longer than a night or two and for that its absolutely fine!

    The breakfast wasn't the greatest but the evening meal was very tasty!

    The location was great, the room was a good size for a family of 4. The food was not gourmet but it was okay and the staff were accommodating. Overall, it was excellent value for money for one night.

    This hotel was wedding party central, if you don't want to see a Sri Lankan wedding this may not be the place for you.

    Only elephants' bathing

    It was one of the most expensive hotels in that area but the food and breakfast was very poor. The hotel was extremely uncared. Also there is only guy who speaks English, the others don'T. We couldn't get the answers from the receptionists and had some problems. i would recommend you to stay in Kandy. it is only one hour by train from Pinnawula. and there is nothing that much to do in Pinnawula.

    Magnificent location with stunning view!! Enjoying breakfast on the terrace while watching the elephants take a bath in the river....

    Rooms are very basic and dated! Staff was not the most bright and motivated I've ever come across...

    The hotel is located right by the river where the Elephants from the orphanage near by go and bathe. It is a sight to see. The breakfast was good also.

    In our room nothing worked! The TV did not work. The shower did not work. The place were you hang the towers had all the screws loose. We arrived at night time, at about 8.00 pm, and the wasn't anybody at the reception and when we went down to the dinning area, the staff there just told us that there were not any rooms left. We told him that we have a reservation and he came up angry and yelling at our driver. In the morning the staff is different and it was not a bad place to be. We recommend this place with caution.

    We enjoyed the view out on to the river to see the elephants and bird life

    The food wasn't so good , my salad came with frozen ham which I promptly returned and then was faced with it still on my bill which after querying was deducted.

    Ночевали одну ночь. Резервировали отель, чтобы посмотреть слонов. Цель оправдана. Всем довольны.Отличное месторасположение. Приветливый персонал. Все понравилось. Рекомендую.

    Наилучшее по сравнению с другими отелями расположение. Слоны подходят очень близко, можно смотреть на них из номера отеля, можно наблюдать за купанием слонов из ресторана или спуститься к ним - покормить и даже погладить.

    расположение, рядом питомник слонов, красивенный вид на реку и джунгли, сувенирные лавки рядом

    номер дали без окон. кондиционер от духоты не спасал

    Superb

    Чистый, уютный номер с ванной, а не душем. Неплохой завтрак. Место купания слонов видно из ресторана.

    В описании гостиницы был обещан номер, из окон которого мы могли наблюдать за купанием слонов. Из нашего номера мы могли наблюдать только за крышей и почему-то за холлом гостиницы. Полотенец ждали часа 4. За это время мы уже успели погулять.

    Уютная комната, но без балкона, и очень удобная кровать!!! Самый ближний отель к месту купания слонов. Только к сожалению накануне был ливень и река сильно вышла из берегов и именно во время нашего приезда слоников не повели купаться :-( Хорошо хоть на улице нас нашёл местный зазывала, предложив покататься на слоне за небольшую, по сравнению с Миллениумом, плату.

    В целом ощущение, что тут не особо убираются. Стены в ванной грязные, полотенца для рук не было(хотя было для ног), на подушке был противный чёрный волос! И очень много комаров! На завтрак дали подгорелый омлет из перца чили. Окна не возможно было открыть, т.к. очень воняло из ресторана местной кухней.

    Прекрасное место для небольшой компании друзей. В бассейне мы плавали одни.

    Поскольку этот отель довольно далеко от города, покушать вблизи негде. А в отеле ВООБЩЕ нет ни еды, ни напитков. Даже купить их здесь нельзя.
