    We stayed in Room No.106 Sorry I am going to use this cage to highlight all short comings, since there is no cage for complaints No channel music. Console is broken. Bath/Toiltes are not Tiled. Stains on the floor. TV indoor antenna is broken. Very poor screen quality. Only one small toaster available for bread toasting for breakfast. Only two slices at a time .You need to wait in the queue. Car parking not organised properly, slots not sufficient. I do not think I can say that I like Thilanaka

    Lizards in the room and corridors, monkeys tapping at your window in the night, the hotel staff does not speak any English and over charged us on a different price than Booked.net. The rooms we stayed in were different than what was shown on Booked.net. They were ugly and they smelled of fish. There were too many mosquitos and bees while we had breakfast. There was only one old style elevator in the hotel which was covered with cockroaches and ants. And when complained to the hotel staff, they kept saying it was hotel policy!

    The hotel staff were less than friendly. The rooms were adequately cleaned but the furniture was old and need replacing. We were unfortunate to have ants in our room and they refused to change rooms but merely sprayed the room. The monkeys were an issue and every morning we had monkeys sitting on our balcony and the monkeys even went into the dining area to steal from the buffet, which is very unhygienic! At dinner one night the hotel entertainment (four guys singing) tried to harass us to buy their cd, which completely spoilt the athmosphere!

    Response of the staff is not prompt enough.

    The rooms was clean and great View aswell.

    Its not that issue but if ur looking for a hotel with an internet connection then this is not the right hotel, the only problem was the internet connection.

    The staff are generally very good and try to do their best.

    This is one of the worst hotels we have ever stayed at. It is dirty, run down, very badly maintained and extremely poor value for money.

    we needed extra beds for our young children and they were fast to respond. Area for the restaurant very pleasant, open.

    Beautiful setting.

    We only stayed one night of our 4 nights booked. I have stayed at Thilanka twice before in years past but standards have slipped dramatically in the intervening years. Maintenance is the main problem - rusting railings, dirty walls, mottled ceilings - these are all things that might be easily fixed but they were bad enough that we wanted to leave immediately. Also, wireless was expected. The computer had 1 computer that did not work.

    close to tourist destinations like the Tooth Relic Temple and the lake

    Although the hotel was of an old artisitic type, it was over priced and they need to rethink of the charges

    Exceptional

    I liked the room location since the view was excellent and fully ventilated with fresh air and light.

    The food was mostly srilankan I would suggest they should offer indian foods also in their buffet
