The location was great, just opposite the Elephant Transit Home and close to a bus stop and shops and restaurants. The pool was clean and well maintained. The staff were really helpful with booking the safari and helping us plan onward travel. We paid to take breakfast on the safari which was very nice and also had a full english in the restaurant which was nice.
We were tucked away in the corner so didn’t have a great view of the pool despite being the only other guests there.
I've stayed at Athgira five times now and it never disappoints. It's clean, comfortable and really near to elephant transit station and safari park. The girls on reception are wonderful and everybody is really helpful. Can't fault the place. It's super!
What a lovely hotel .. ideal for a stopover at Udawalawe National Park. An early checkin (we arrived 12:30) allowed time to cool off in the pool and get sorted for a safari in the afternoon (3-6pm). The hotel arranged it for Rs 3500 (park entrance is extra). We declined the tour guide - the driver knew exactly where to go and was in contact with other drivers. We ate a nice meal in the restaurant later. Service was good with plenty of staff on hand. The rooms are fantastic with massive bathroom .. even soft-close toilet seat! Would highly recommend a stay.
The hotel staff we absolutely lovely. Especially one of the girls on reception (apologies I don’t know name), she helped us with the safari and buses around Udawalawe. Just across the road from the Elephant transit home, great place to visit to watch baby elephants being fed! Safari was brilliant, we booked through the hotel, the safari company was called Niluka, the whole thing was brilliant and a good price.
Aircon wasn’t massively powerful but the ceiling fan kept us cool. The hotel has a small shop outside to get water and snacks but not much else on the hotel road.
Friendly staff! Nice breakfast and the rooms are very clean and new.
