The hotel and rooms are colourful, even a tad garish but this does not detract from the friendly service and comfortable stay you are likely to have here. The staff were courteous and helpful. While the food wasn't spectacular, it was well worth the money charged for our stay. The hotel is not too far from the many attractions in... More

We stayed a couple nights at the Hotel Randiya and were really impressed by the helpfulness of the staff, the cleanliness of the hotel, and the decent restaurant. The rooms were somewhat basic, but the showers were good and the rooms were well-maintained. The staff went out of their way to assist. The only downside to the hotel is the... More

This hotel is a bit located outside the town of Anuradhapura. Staff are friendly. Rooms are really outdated, but clean and spacious. Food offered was a 5-course dinner which was ok, but nothing special and for us a bit too european. We try to eat local food as much as possible when on holiday. The hotel is currently undergoing an... More

... But the place has character. There might be things that need fixing but we found it adequate after a long day travelling and sightseeing. Our bed was comfortable with a mosquito net. The AC worked. The management and staff made up for any shortcomings in the rooms ... They were friendly and helpful. Food was excellent, too. We had... More

I was there just for one night, first of all I felt like I am in prison. Rooms were very dark with low voltage CFL bulbs, water pressure was so bad. Water draining in the bathroom was a mess. 10.30am checkout time was not acceptable. I wanted to have a drink with my friends and even before serving they told... More

I've been stayed in this hotel 3-4 times. I must say that this is the best Budget hotel in Anuradhapura according to my experience. The hotel staff is very kind and helpful. Also it is very near to Sri maha Bodhiya and Ruwanwali maha saya from this hotel. Rooms are small but nicely maintained. Food is quite good. from my... More

The staff here was very attentive, but the rooms were dark, and the mosquito nets had holes in them. We had two rooms for our family, and the triple had bedbugs, so I had quite an itchy next few days.
