Anuradhapura has many incredible sites to visit, however there aren't many hotels in the area. Heritage is one of the bigger hotels that you will find here. The reception is large and nice and the hotel staff quite friendly. The rooms are large and spacious as well. The hotel is located next to the tank, so evening walks are nice,... More

Has clean rooms, though our blanket was stained. No mould or other nasties though. Wifi in common areas. Good omelettes at breakfast and reasonably priced a la carte menu for dinner, also buffet but we didn't try. Missing half the light fixtures in our room which was weird. In a nice quiet area next to lake.

Did stay only one night on our trip to the beginning of. The culture triangle. Love the location, just steps from the biggest "water tank" reservoir. Very helpful staff, good food. Large pool, but did not use, due to massive rain showers. Great. Value

I have stayed at this hotel for two times. located closer to a lake in Anuradhapura. Since there are not much standard hotels in Anuradhapura, this hotel is OK for a night stopover. The rooms are average and maintained well. There is a swimming pool, but not much to do in the hotel. So if you are going to make... More

The initial price was little too much with a massive 40% discount it was value for money. It is 10 Minutes away from the “Puja Nagarya”. Staff was very friendly. We wanted to an additional bed and it was arranged swiftly. Buffet was good but guess on weekdays it will be set menu due to lesser occupancy. Location was great... More

I went on a heritage tour of Srilanka from 28th Nov to 4th Dec 2014 with a group of seven arranged by Cox & Kings. Reached there around 6.30 Pm. The access to location is very tardy with kutcha road. Bumpy due to rain. However, the hotel welcomed us with soft drinks and allotted decent accomodation, very relaxing for the... More

Hotel was nice and comfortable. Plus points are a very nice pool and lovely garden, trees and flowers near the pool - very memorable. Nice dinner by the poolside. Negative points are that room is a bit simple and not many facilities in the hotel. Otherwise not bad - would definitely consider staying again when I next visit Anuradhapura.

At the outset, the location and the entrance looks modestly impressive. When you get up to go to your room, your expectations deflated immediately. For the price you pay, the hotel is very poorly maintained. Wires sticking out of the light holders, no hot water although it is clearly advertised. Above all the tap water stank of sewage!!! Bathrooms are... More
