    The hotel is a bit expensive compared to other places, however still value for money. Very nice view to the lake, 2-3 minutes walking distance from the museum where you can buy the tickets for Polonnaruwa, very friendly staff and spacious room and bathroom. Highly recommended.

    The room was spacious and clean. We booked a plan that included breakfast and dinner, so we were able to use the restaurant. The staff were very polite and we had a great time.

    Absolutely superb!”

    We stayed at the Ekho Lakehouse for four nights and cannot recommend it highly enough. The staff is incredible (so helpful, so positive, so kind), the rooms are lovely, and it is a peaceful place right on the lake. The little infinity pool is gorgeous, a perfect place to watch the sun go down. At night, the pool has tiny lights at the bottom and you feel like you're floating in the night sky. Meals are excellent and the Sri Lankan breakfast is outstanding. We also arranged drivers and a late afternoon boat ride through guest services and all was fantastic. We borrowed bikes to ride to the historic ruins (some of which are right in the hotel's back yard). This is a truly fantastic boutique hotel and you should absolutely stay here.

    Exceptional hotel! ”

    What a wonderful hotel!. It's small and quite 'colonial' in nature. The rooms are big and airy.. would recommend a lake side view rather than the garden view rooms. The staff are brilliant! So helpful and polite. Location is great - very near the enterence to the Museum and ruins. Food is incredible! Lovely variety of food - both Western and local. The pool is small but honestly,,, we were not there for the pool side so its was lovely to just come back after hot day out and soak in the cool water! HIghly recommend this hotel!

    Generally, our stay at Ekho Lake House was delightful. The hotel is very well situated in Polonnaruwa itself. The room (the Royal Suite) is wonderful. Very much appreciated is the private garden and terrace space. The food is really excellent (we stuck to the Sri Lankan curries), and very good value. The staff are friendly and extremely keen to please. Comments for improvement are minor. Email contact with the hotel during the booking process was very poor. After a six hour drive, we were delayed getting into our room upon arrival. Twice, our room was not cleaned in a timely fashion, although the actual cleaning itself was excellent. One door-handle and a couple of lightbulbs were not working. And, on occasion, hotel staff appeared uninvited in our private terrace area to sweep leaves or whatever. In each case, these points are to do with attention to detail. All in all, though, highly recommended.
