This three-bedroom private hotel really is a hidden delight. From the outside it looks entirely unremarkable, but walk through the front door and you discover a tasteful and skilfully-planned interior, a world of stone floors, sumptuous sofas, contemporary art on white walls, and light shining in from several secluded, stone-walled courtyard gardens, decked by tropical plants. Mount Lodge's great advantage is that each floor exists independently from the other two floors, so allowing a reasonable degree of privacy in your own personal suite. Mount Lodge is also far enough away from the rail line for passing trains not to raise late-risers from their slumbers. Mount Lodge can be booked in part or whole and is the sister property of Nisala Arana located in Bentota.
