Basic accommodation but staff was friendly. breakfast was more like hostel style, just basic and we were the only group there, it was shoulder season so I guess it was normal. Wifi worked ok in the rooms and evening meals were much better than breakfast.

Was there late May this year for an one night stay with my wife and two kids. Rooms and bathroom were clean but seemed as if the house keeping staff had totally ignored the balcony. The open wi-fi network signals were very poor. The staff is friendly and very helpful, The kids enjoyed the little baby pool attached to the... More

This was a newly renovated motel with great room which was clean and tidy along with the bathroom. Pool looked great but didn't use the facility. Also ate at the motel and thought the food was of a high standard. Would definitely stay here again if I needed.

This is the most value-for-money accommodation in our ten day Sri Lankan adventure. Newly renovated with refreshing colors. Cooling drink after safari was a great welcome. Morning view from balcony was tranquil. My morning swim in pool alone was very enjoyable. Water of the pool seemed scented and not chlorine smell. Must quickly close doors to keep mosquitos and insects... More

Visited this hotel in Jan 2015. A fairly run down place although newly constructed. Food was below average. Room was average with a noisy A/C and they did not know what to do. They don't clean the place. But compared to other hotels in Anuradhapra, this hotel is better. If you are visiting Anuradhapura, you do not have a much... More

The restaurant was absolutely excellent. I was booked in to stay for 4 days initially while working in the area for a month; however the food was so good... More
