We stayed at the Heritage Hotel Anuradhapura as part of an organized tour. We had no problems during our stay, our room was clean and comfortable. The hotel is situated in a Peaceful scenic location. The breakfast buffet had a great selection of food and the staff were all very helpful and friendly.

It was a nightmare from the time go! The room and the bathrooms was not cleaned to expectation. There were dead flies on our table and plates in the dining room when we went for dinner. We woke up at 130 am to find the bed was crawling with bed bugs!!!! complained to the manager who offered us another room... More

This hotel is located at a tank (lake). We stayed here for one night. Rooms are spacious and clean. Bed feels hard but we had no trouble sleeping. The bathroom has a door closer which causes the bathroom to get very warm and a bit smelly. Hotel is a bit dated (was very modern twenty years ago :)). You can... More

Very hard to find (no signposting). It looks grand but once in you realize that it needs a complete refresh to bring it to its former glory when it was first built. Rooms are average, cleanliness leaves a lot to be desired. Too many stray dogs on the property which made for a very bad night's sleep. Service need to... More

Found about this hotel through Trip Advisor itself. We booked the hotel on Full Board basis. The first day lunch was set in the pool side. The staff was very friendly and did a superb service. By the evening, from the manager to the bottom level staff knew us very well, remembers the room number etc. They greet us whenever... More

It is a very convenient place with good accommodation & other facilities and reasonably priced to any visitor who would like to see the Heritage City. Food was fairly OK although the selection was not much. There were couple of shortcomings in our room such as power to electric kettle was not coming on the second day, hand shower was... More

It was our first night in Srilanka and the hotel was a good choice. The rooms are spacious and they have a nice view from the balcony. The hotel is very quiet and has a very big garden on the terrace. The view of the lake is amazing across of it. The staff are very humble and kind. The breakfast... More

Poorly furnished room. Air-conditioner kept tripping circuit breaker. Bed was like sleeping on a wooden plank. Pool water was cloudy and in need of a good cleaning. Breakfast buffet (which we, as a party of 5, showed up at starting hour) had cold food, tea, and coffee - but, plenty of staff walking around. Spent 20+ days in Sri Lanka... More
