If you love nature, then you'll love it here! Especially if you like sleeping with frogs, giant lizards (harmless), ghekkos and ants. It was a fun experience for one night but I wouldn't pay for it again. The room we stayed in was a separate lodge that has the potential to be very nice. It is nicely built and has a lovely open roofed bathroom. However the lodge looked like it hadn't been used for months and was poorly finished. There is a major ant problem which is to be expected in the middle of woodland but is slightly overwhelming. I had some food in a plastic bag in my bag which was infested within hours. The bathroom was unclean and the shower wasn't working properly. Rice and curry was ok and they do a lovely lime soda. There is no alcohol on the site. There are different lodgings which may provide a completely different experience and the problems we encountered could be fixed to provide a nice place to stay.

Host was very kind. But the map of this resort on the airbnb site was completely worng!!!. This resort was very very far from Dambulla town. It took about 30-40min from the town so I should pay too much for toktok. There were nothing around the resort. The price was expensive but no hot water, no enough water. My husband couldn't sleep because of too much mosquitoes.

I love, love, love the Elephant Gate so much. I am sure I will go back to this place in the future. I've spent almost three weeks in Sri Lanka for traveling so far, and a stay at the Elephant Gate was definitely the highlight of the entire trip. All the staffs were very genuine, sincere and kind -- they were a bit shy, but I even liked that genuine shyness. They picked up the fresh veggies from their own garden and cooked a delish curry and rice for us -- we ended up having all our meals there. It takes some time to prepare the dish for us, though -- make sure to order your dish beforehand so that they have enough time to cook. The bed was comfortable and we didn't fine any single mosquito in our room. The location was a bit difficult to fine at first, but I liked the serenity of the place in the forest. We were the only guest there, so we enjoyed our time just hanging out at the Elephant Gate so much since we are a huge fan of the nature. I think those pictures on airbnb don't capture the beauty of the place well, though. In reality, it looks much, much better and beautiful, I must say. overall, two-thumbs-up experience!

The building and surroundings are lovely and the close proximity to Sigiriya made it perfect for our purposes. The beds are comfortable and the modern but open air bathrooms were a nice touch. We were greeted with fresh fruit and friendly staff. The evening meal was very good but to our North American middle class standards the hovering staff and hyper service was a bit much. Might be more geared to the Asian or upper class European guests.

Nice area and nice room. however, it was raining a bit and there were a lot of mosquitos! We got badly bitten, partly because the house was constructed with an open air bathroom and a gap between wall and roof, partly because there were a hole in the mosquito net. otherwise it was an overall nice experience.

Elephantgate consists of two beautiful buildings, very open and airy, but the setting is not the jungle, but a piece of bushland close to the street. It might be one day a nice garden, but now it is under construction, the same goes for the restaurant and the pond. The service is very friendly but quite chaotic and challenged by simple requests. Requests had to be treated by the host, who wasn't at the location through the local manager, that made everything quite complicated and bureaucratic. The complaints we had were of little interest for the host, this left us quite unsatisfied. We were charged 72Euro per Night for two adults, for a lower price we would have had different expectations.
