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

Stayed just one night here which was enough. However the staff were attentive and helpful if you over look the bad, old fashioned building that needs repair. Walls - cracks filled with plaster but not painted, old shabby decor which obviously needs immediate attention. The only thing I liked about the room was the painting over the bed! Breakfast a...

Staff were friendly, the rooms were nice but average, the location and view is stunning very secluded and serene as well. The grounds were beautiful, lovely birds, reptiles and animals around, you really feel and see nature all around.

For an overseas traveller the Heritage may be a little disappointing but am unsure uf there is much better in the area. The pluses are a nice pool and fabulous dinner and the ability to observe 2 wedding Homecoming parties in 2 days. Staff was also friendly. The minues are shabby decor, dark dank bathroom---it was clean but needed a... More

Hotel make with more eco friendly.. Staff is really friendly. Rooms and location of the rooms are really great.. But the wi-fi coverage in the hotel is very poor. Food also up-to some extend but it's not very good like a star grade hotels. But testy. Outer view also fantastic! One of the best hotels around the Anuradhpura..

The Heritage Hotel in Anuradhapura was a great hotel to stay, especially for the local traveller who usually visits Anuradhapura on a pilgrimage, but who is also looking to spend the weekend in comfort. We were given a warm welcome and felt well looked after throughout our stay. We are a local ex-pat family and have stayed at several other... More

The Hertiage Hotel in Anaradaphura is nicely located near the lake. The hotel itself has a big, nice decorated lobby, but the rooms (especially the bathrooms) are really outdated. The restaurant is even more outdated, it’s a large room with almost no decoration. But the swimming pool and garden are really nice. The staff was helpful and friendly at the... More

WiFi did not work in the room, at times it did not work in the lobby and other public areas. Breakfast and dinner buffet were good, with a variety of Western and Asian foods. Average... More
