Stayed 4 nights at this hotel while on a promotional program in Anuradhapura. Around 10 of us stayed in 5 different rooms for 4 nights. Rooms were clean n tidy. So were the bathrooms, with hot water. Me n a colleague stayed in room no 302 which was a bit small room which had a double bed. There is not... More

My wife and I were happy to have selected this place for our 2-night stay in Anuradhapura (I still cannot pronounce that). The manager is incredibly friendly and helpful, but also respects your privacy. He taught us several phrases in the local dialect while serving us meals. His English is very good, too. The food was always good. Laundry is... More

I've stayed only one night. The service was friendly, room clean, AC working. Only downside, it is not in the correct spot i google maps. It is further down the road near the police station and library.

Perfectly okay for a night or two. The AC worked well, but we didn't need it. The bed was comfortable. There was not much noise although the hotel is very close to the main road. The shower was perfect: hot water and good pressure. Finally a nice shower in Sri Lanka ;) The location is okay, but you have to... More

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
