Nilketha villa is a good hotel but need to be renovated. Rooms are spacious and has nice views. Swimming pool is also nice and surrounded by paddy fields. Rooms are quiet. Food is also good and staff is also helpful. Everything is ok but need lot of reworks. Jayantha you can do it.

This is a mid range stay for a budget traveller. Good energy, fairly equipped room with all basic facilities like hot water, ac, fan etc. Friendly staff. Good food. Although you can find less costly places to eat outside, eating here, the cleanliness and adequate portions were assured. We recommend this place to a mid range budget traveller. It is value for money.

This hotel was terrible. I happened to stay over 2 hrs and no one answered the phone. All of the gates were locked. Once I entered to the hotel they provided me a terrible room. That was not the one was in Agoda reservation page pictures. Linen were terrible dirty and I am sure they have not changed those stuff. I happened to struggle to find a room until 3.45 am and I contacted Agoda US customer service during this period to complain these issues. Following issues noted. 1. Terrible unhealthy accommodation. 2. Very poor customer service 3. Full of cockroaches.

Response from jayantha J, Manager at Nilketha Villa Eco Hotel
Responded 12 Dec 2017
I was advice by agoda.com as a special request by the client that they will be arriving between 5 pm to 6 pm on the day, which they arrived around 2 am. we close the gates at 12 mid night! he had our phone no's & why he didn't call us to inform that they are getting late to come! as soon as the guest came in he was arrogant & making all the things not good at the hotel & finding all mistakes! we offer them the very best what we had & he was not satisfied with any thing!

I booked 3 rooms from this hotel and it's a sudden visit with family.Don't expect brand new rooms from this hotel as this is old hotel. Rooms are not clean and there are old furniture as well.Not worth money. Next time I don't go to this place and not recommend.

I stayed with family. Rooms were ok, not super clean but it was a calm place , not much crowded. Entire building is bit old now, need renovation. They have a pool but unfortunately they close it after 6 o'Clock. If you request before 6 , they may allow you to use it after sunset. For us, they refused but a manager came there at right time. He allowed us to use the pool after 6 . Food is not available because of less visitors. You can go to nearby town to find some good eating places. Hot water , A/C and generator power available.
