After a disappointing visit at the White House hotel, we just took the next corner and followed the sign for lake wave .. Instant karma. Ok, to be honest it isn't the best looking place in Sri Lanka but never in our long experience traveling with our children have we felt more welcome and at home! Thanks again for your... More

We arrived to Anuradhapura from Sigiriya where we also stayed at Upali´s guest house called Spice Villa. We preffered Sigiriya as we loved the nature around and calmness. However the stay at Lake Wave Hotel was also very nice despite the job they were doing on the lake in front of the hotel and also inside the hotel. Hopefully it... More

Average guesthouse with average bedrooms, a bit pricy for what you get... (3 000 rp for 4), but the location is great : near the new bus station and with splendid view of the lake. Staff is nice but the owner is a bit too much and wants to sell you everithing he can : a car with driver, a... More

I spent four nights in this awesome place in January. The rooms are nice and clean and the bathroom as well. The family that runs the hotel is super-friendly and make you feel at home all the time. They also assisted me to find a temple where i could practice meditation, far away from the beaten tracks. And thanks to... More

The hostel is nicely situated next to a lake. Although it didn't have much water during our stay, many birds were around and the garden is nice for relaxing. The location is very quiet. It's a little away from the town, but since the town is anyway just a noisy road, we didn't bother. Bikes were available for free. The... More

I booked the hotel because of the review on tripadvisor thinking it's a low budget hotel and we were only going to stay for one night. The rooms WERE cheap but the final food and drink check was $65 for two. We checked in late (7pm-ish) so we ordered dinner. They served fried rice and curry which was pretty tasty.... More

Stayed here for one night, the rooms were very basic but it was clean. The staff were so helpful and the owner even dropped us to the bus station after our stay. If you're looking for somewhere cheap and cheerful then this is the place. It is still getting done up and built but once it's done it should be... More

Disappointing place. I'm a budget traveller. The hotel is still under construction effectively as they bulid when they can.I respect the idea of taking money as soon as you can, one mans dream sorta thing bit by bit. However its not very appealing and is dangerouse in some points especially the staircase up to the rooms. Not recommended for children... More

Don't know why this is so popular on Tripadvisor. The accommodation is really basic and we were the only guest there. It was kinda depressing. The son of the owner is a good bloke, even though he doesn't speak good English. We had a different experience with the 'friendly' owner. I reckon he is just a good salesman and were... More

Upali, the fella who owns this has a real vision for this place. And his heart is genuinely in the right place. I sat up late with him hearing about the tragic recent history of Sri Lanka, local anecdotes etc. My antennae for fake camaraderie are pretty tuned in, and this places oozes a genuine homely feel. The son's owner... More
