This was my second stay at Heritage Hotel this year. I liked it the first time, so went I went back. Not a 5 star by any means,but has that wonderful Sri Lankan charm. The staff are friendly and helpful ,the place is spotlessly clean, the food is good. And to top it off,a wonderful location overlooking the lake. Wi... More

We stayed in this hotel few months back during our pilgrim tour . Hotel rooms are clean and large. All other facilities are really good. Food was excellent. My kids love this place, specially the swimming pool. As this is situated few meters away from Thisa Wewa , you can enjoy your evening there with a relax mind.

Having read some of the earlier reviews of this place, I must say we took a gamble and decided to go anyway. We're happy we did as it turned out to be a pretty good establishment on a lovely property with very attentive staff always eager to help. If you're looking for a relaxing place to spend time with family... More

Took a little trip down south from the hectic IT capital of India to the island paradise of Sri Lanka. Was recommended this place by a friend who visited it a few years ago. It was worth the trip! Spent most of the day lounging by the pool de-stresssing from the hectic city life and enjoying the pool side BBQ.... More

This hotel is not good at all. It is not clean, staffs are not friendly at all and foods were terrible and tasteless. The only friendly persons we found in this hotel were the reception girl at the time we checked in and the chef who handled the omelet station on breakfast. There was a smell in the bathroom and...

this location is prefect . Evening walk along the lake banks are like meditation . The hotel it self is pretty good , service and the food was good too . There's big pool to jump in after day of sightseeing as well . You can see all the three stupas across the lake.

Disappointing stay for many reasons notwithstanding it's comparison to some other hotels we stayed in. We stayed for 2 nights on half board basis - rooms were basic but ok. On arrival we were given no information about the hotel, meal times etc. We went to the pool area only to find there was no bar open - no licence... More

Selected this hotel to stay on Full board basis during my recent visit to Anuradhapura. To be frank, I just expected more from this hotel but sadly anyone can notice that the hotel is not maintaining properly. The corridors and iutdoors were not clean. However, the rooms are quite spacious and clean. Standard options like AC, hot water, TV, wifi... More
