Service and Staff
Property condition


DO NOT BOOK ONLINE. Their customer service was just horrible, the worst I've ever seen at a hotel. They did not have 2 rooms for me that I booked online and paid 3 weeks prior to the check-in date. I arrived at the hotel around 7 PM and they told me they were fully booked. The next day was a national holiday, and it was not easy to find a decent hotel at that time of the day. They offered to book a different hotel that I didn't even know about, but refused to give me a refund. I told them I'd go to a different hotel with similar ratings, but they could not guarantee that, and they didn't want to spend more than what I paid either. Since it was getting late, I agreed to go to a different hotel they booked. We drove another 5 miles to get to this hotel, and it was in pretty bad condition. There were renovations going on at the front, we checked the rooms and they were not even ready. Bathrooms were dirty and there were no clean bedsheets. We refused to stay there and went back to Lake Wind again to complain. I was really frustrated at that point, and they simply did not take any responsibility for how they handled the situation. The lady at the front desk and another guy were very rude in the way they talked. They just wanted to get rid of me by giving me a refund, and told me they had to attend to other "guests". They did not care about all the hassle I had to go through. I finally had to take the refund and go find a different place to stay which took me 2 more hours.

4/5 Good

Wedding reception noise.

We arrived in the middle of a wedding celebration with extremely loud music so we're unable to use the facilities or stay in our room. Staff were very apologetic but were not able to refund our money. They kindly offered us a boat trip and drinks so we could have some peace and quiet till 4pm when the celebration was due to end. Apart from that the room was fine. Perhaps the hosts could put a note on the booking site when events have been booked to assist guests when choosing their hotel.

lake view, nice room, not great location

Nice hotel, grand entrance, staff were friendly and helpful. Room was nice with excellent view of the lake. Could even get into the lake for a swim from out of the back of the hotel if you really wanted. Pool was quite small and dirty. Unfortunately when we were staying, there were a group of people staying who were having a private party like a stag do with very loud music that went on until quite late and taking over the decking outside overlooking the lake which meant we had to have dinner inside (not that bad due to all the flying insects) but was loud to have dinner, could not really hear ourselves think. Food was very good, we had the buffet that was on offer. Sent us off with breakfast in the morning as we were going on a safari early which was very good but if you're only there to go on Yala safari its fine. Not really a lot around the hotel, walk into Tissa centre takes around 30 minutes.

5/5 Excellent

Feels like home

One of my all time favorite hotels. The staff are very friendly. The hotel rooms offer such a beautiful view of the lake just a few metres away. I love waking up early to see the sunrise above the lake asks the quiet evening serenity of the landscape. This hotel is a wonderful place for a get away for peace and rest and a refreshing break from my busy schedule. Feels like my 2nd home. Will definitely come back again.
