4/10 Fair

Very sadly our visit to The Lake Forest was not a good experience. Lovely bedrooms- but no hot water in the bathrooms which of course we reported to the Reception staff shortly after our arrival- to no avail!! We reported the 'no hot water issue' again to recoption the folliwing mirning- sadly again absolutely no resolve to the Problem. Very disappointing food- the hitel menu offers a lot which in reality the hotel does not deliver. The breakfast was the poorest we have been offered in our travels in Sri Lanka- with very sadly leaderless and rather apathetic staff. The Lake Forest Hotel needs a SHAKE UP.

Extremely gracious staff with delicious food. The fabulous bathroom could use a better ventilation system, but I’m fussy. Truly excellent.
