10/10 Exceptional

The hotel staff were kind and attentive throughout our short stay. The room was clean and well appointed, and the view over the river was pleasant and a little different compared to more traditional sea views. I would happily recommend this hotel to anyone wanting to stay in an above average hotel in Trincomalee. The only downside, as with many hotels in the area, is the direct surroundings are not so pleasant. Access to the hotel is made down a pot-holed dirt track. A tuk tuk or bicycle is necessary to make any excursions (but the hotel provide bikes for free, or more modern ones for a small charge)

Nicest of staff and serivce. Very relaxing spot.
Just the nicest and happiest of staff. We felt very welcomed. The room was comfy, a quiet spot on the river. Bed sheets and pillows were so soft. Had the place to ourselves due to low season, but i woule recommend anyone to come here at this time also. Weather and sun still great in the daytime. Would recommend the place to anyone and we are looking forward to returning one day.

2/10 Poor

The room was very poorly maintained and the walls were dirty. This made for a very unpleasant stay. Given the price point you should expect better quality rooms. I would not recommend this property to anyone.

What an amazing place to stay! I stayed here for four nights as a solo traveller and really enjoyed it. The hotel is stunning! The pool was perfect to lounge and relax by, complete with a bar with attentive servers. The rooms were beautiful, clean and spacious. I highly recommend getting one with the Jacuzzi tub overlooking the lagoon. The. Location was also great, the beach a mere 5 minute walk with several restaurants close by. I ate most meals at the hotel, and they were all wonderful, especially the local dishes. The best part of the hotel was the staff. They went above and beyond with friendliness and making sure your every need was met. I highly recommend staying here if you are visiting Trincomalee, I am already looking forward to staying here again!
