Hostel was clean and located on the lake. Food was amazing and freshly prepared. Perfect for 1 nights stay. Safari organised by the Lodge was good and affordable. TIP: Driver could drive slower and improve knowledge of the wildlife. Impressive that the Lodge advised us to go very early so we were first ones into the park, this proved to be worthwhile

Samantha and his family took great care of us. We stayed for one night, enjoyed tea by the lake on our arrival followed by an incredible home cooked rice and curry dinner. Rooms are basic but very clean with large beds and everything you need for a nights stay. Up early at 5am for the safari and Samantha really knows his stuff, we were 4th inline to get in and it paid off with sighting of elephants within 3 minutes of entering the park. We spotted tons of elephants, crocs, various bird species, deer and even some rare jackals, this man has eagle eyes! Would definitely recommend doing the safari with Samantha and staying here if you're in the area, incredible spot!

The guesthouse is run by a woman and her husband. You can do the morning or evening Safari within the accommodation. Her husband is the perfect guide and will explain you a lot of things while visiting the nationalpark. Behind the guesthouse is a lake you can go swim.

Stay here! I am a female travelling alone and was looking for a safe, clean place to stay while in the area. I found it. splendid Lakeview safari lodge was a great place to base myself while visiting the close by Uda Walawe national park. The rooms were clean and spacious, the food was great, Samantha and his wife went out of there way to organise my transport for the next day, and the house is on the lake which is very nice. I went for a big walk on my own in the morning and felt totally safe in the area and did a safari with Samantha which was awesome! I would definitely stay here again.
