8/10 Very Good

After you leave the main road to, literally, dive onto this hotel on a 45 or so degrees slope, you'll find yourself in a tiny combe crossed by the river flowing from the top of the main mountain: Sri Pada a.k.a. Adam's Peak. Legend has it that some vehicles are no longer able to climb it back and are consequently stuck there for ever. Why did you come here? Well, to climb that peak, of course! What else? The slope leading to the hotel and that you'll have to take in the reverse direction will just make the initial training of your escalation. The hotel itself consists of basic rooms, some completely made out of wood giving the typical aspect of moutain chalets. Or, at least, cabins. This is around 1000 metres high, and you'll have to take around the same height with your effort to reach the top. Meanwhile, mosquitoes still live at that altitude and nets are provided around the beds for that reason. Also, the river, the official 'pool' of the hotel, is nearby which translates into small beings occasionally paying you a visit. Especially in the bathroom, situated outside the room but that is reached via a small terrace. No, you're not here for comfort, you're here to take the rest necessary before and after the climb. As the thousands, mostly locals, others pilgrims that came that way. So if you feel ready for that gift of self, just go for it.

Our room had a great view of the mountain, however, was in very poor condition. The sheets and mosquito net had stains and mould, the room smelt of mould and mildew and the bathroom had multiple soaps left from previous travellers. The food was overpriced, particularly breakfast. It was a good 10 minute walk from the start of the trek, keeping in mind White House is at the bottom of a steep hill. Each night a good explanation of what to expect from the Adams Peak climb is given.

The rooms were really large with great views. Staff were attentive and friendly and happy to organise your trip for you.

The rooms were comfortable, although there was no hot water, and the breakfast was only an egg and A LOT of bread, which after climbing Adam’s Peak was disappointing. The proprietors charge for every little thing, including borrowing a flashlight, but they do know about the climb at any time of day. Our biggest complaint was that there was poor treatment of our driver. We didn’t mind paying for his room (although most others let the drivers stay for free), but we did mind that he was put in a dirty, shabby room and provided substandard meals. Overall, I would not recommend.

Great location for Adam's peak. Staff are friendly. They also provide a head light and walking stick for the hike which is great. We used their head light for the hike. The dinner and breakfast was also good.

Happily functional
Not a lot to say about this. Clean, comfortable, functional. Use as a base for Adam's Peak. The only "con" is it is down a steep hill from the main road. But then again food is a lot cheaper than the place at the top of the hill.

Okay hotel but I'd look elsewhere next time
Good: - okay value for money - Great view to the Adam's Peak (you can see the path lit up at night, from the restaurant and your room) Bad: - Staff expecting tips all the time. After every single thing they do for you (carrying a bag, bringing something which they forgot to provide to your room, etc etc.) they expect tips (which in usual cases I'd be happy to give as gratitude to their service, but it's a different story when it's 'expected' - some staff even show their begging hands). I'm suspecting that the staff are not on salary but have to live off on tips and that's what makes them behave in such way, which is quite sad though. - Smelly room - Dirty tab water (suspected that they just use river water without perhaps filtering/chemically-cleaning): water smells and yellow-brown in colour. You don't feel clean after having a shower of course, and you have to use bottled water for brushing teeth

A place to sleep before Adam's Peak hike
OK place to stay for 1 night before climbing Adam's Peak. Basic no frills and clean place, about 115-20 minutes walk to start of the hike. I appreciated the late check in after a delayed train! And hearty breakfast after the hike, albeit at an extra charge (confirm first if you have it included in your room cost). It's located down a steep driveway (next to a creek/stream) so be prepared!
