The entrance and from the first look of it, for 4500 this looks like a "omg.. Is this place really that cheap?" And once you start actually using it only you will know why its cheap! Rooms are clean and i give 5-starts for presentation. But the washroom wasn't that clean.. Don't even think about using their plug points.. From... More

Our stay started with the staff having no idea we that we had even booked the day before, finally led us to our room that was full of ants. Musty, frogs, ants, no top bed sheet, we had to ask for towels and toilet paper, more ants. Terrible service in the over priced restaurant. We enjoyed sitting in the garden,... More

This place is an ok option in Anuradhapura considering the rooms are good, with A/C and hot water (as if you needed it). The staff didn't understand english too well but they tried to be as helpful as possible. The wi-fi wasn't working. The place lacks atmosphere. I have seen no other guest and almost nobody came to the restaurant... More

We went to this place as there is an outlet available for Chinese foods. What we ordered was Noodles with Fried Chicken. It was really great. One of the best i have ever tried. Service was good. Quick and friendly staff.

Driver stopped here late in the evening. Room wasn't great. A bit hot and stuffy. Extortionate bill for a tea in the morning,. Should ask for the price before requesting anything. The gardening staff in the morning are quite friendly though.

Avoid that place...why? Well you'll get what you paid for. Absolutely no welcome at all, they don't speak good english so good luck to get what they say. No front desk or whatsoever, looked more like an abandoned house to me. Some big construction or renovation is taking place in the what-so-called hotel garden, which is ugly and noisy. Rooms...
