Beautiful Setting, Attentive Service

Posted May 10, 2013 on Hotels.com
It was lovely. Low season is in May and hardly any guests. Actually an ideal time to visit as you get undivided attention. If it was full, I would not stay there as there are lots of rooms and it has a slightly institutional feel. Definitely not a retreat in the woods, though that is the setting.

Great experience

I think Deer Park can easily qualify as one of the best hotels in Sri Lanka. Great property and well maintained. Lovely view and cottages. You will need a car to get there and a short drive away to the city.

you'll enjoy Deer Park Hotel

Posted Jan 30, 2012
Pros: swimming pool, buffet at night
A sanctuary after spending the day in the heat. It's a convenient distance from the cultural triangle and the big lake in front of it is very scenic

Deer Park ,Giritale - excellent mid-level stays

Posted Jan 2, 2012 on Hotels.com
Attractive lay-out, attentive service, 'cool' bathroom, generally comfortable and smooth running; bar food and drink at night on the terrace, buffet breakfast and the outdoor swimming pools especially good. The food was real food (local fruit yummy!) and the staff were very helpful and always kind. The price and location are right for above average but not extravagant hotelling - just right for us. Hotels.com did a great job for us. J&C Australia.

Good hotel to see central Sri Lanka!

This is not hotel on the lake, as it may appear from pics, while some deluxe bungalos overview the lake over local road. This is real hotel in the jungles, very natural and nice! Good design, good management, good food - buffet when a lot of visitors, and ala carte in more intimate moments. You ll need driver and car to travell around, its very reliale and cost about 120$... Car from/to Colombo was 160$ for us (7 hours).. 2-3 days needed to see all places around!
