We stayed there only for one night so we cannot say a lot about this place. The room was nice and clean, with towels provided. The staff was not very quickly as the breakfast time was delayed and we had to postpone our further plans. However the food was tasty and the garden in which we were served the breakfast... More

Stayed there for 2 nights. Friendly welcome, clean room with A/C and functional bathroom. Good food, quite expensive compared to local places but that is the case in all hotels. Very good bed! We were in room 305, very quiet. All in all would recommend this place if you stay in Anuradhapura!

We stayed two nights in Anuradhapura. The place is nice, with decent breakfast (service little 'slow'), safe deposit and Ac. Not far from most of tourist spots. Good for couples/backacking with friends.

We stayed two nights in the French Garden tourist Rest. The room was very clean and the Guest House is good located (no main road) and charming. However, the staff is sneaky, trying to get the most out of you (regarding selling services like TukTuk, food, etc.). By asking, the managing guy just gave selective information about eating options in... More

Sri Lankan accomodation gets a lot of bad reviewed in TA as many people expect Eiropean standards yet want to pay backpacker rates. This friendly B&B has all you can ask for. It's clean, ok Internet, good big beds with comfy pillows, good location and a great Sri Lankan breakfast. The continental breakfast is not great but order a local... More

We stayed 3 nights at the beginning of our 3 week tour of Sri Lanka. We had a complimentary tuk-tuk pickup from the New railway station even though we were 1 hour late on our 6 hour journey from Gampaha. Supun was our friendly receptionist, waiter and general advisor. We paid just under £20/night including breakfast from hostelbookers.com. We had... More

The place was clean, what's not that obvious in Sri Lanka. Manager of that place was very helpful and nice. He explained everything to us which was very helpful since it was our first day in Sri Lanka. He helped us arrange tuk tuk to all ruins and to our next destination. Definitely I recommend it.

If you plan to stay at the hotel with you family then check out a two room room on the second floor with spacious showerroom - great! Nice breakfast/dinner area and proximity to bus stations. Good value!
