A great looking hotel from the outside, but the food is mediocre, drinks expensive and my room had the smallest trickle of water in the hand basin and shower. Although this was fixed to the extend I could shower and shave, it still wasn't good. Took my room key with me the following day and the room was not made... More

Wonderful small hotel with all ingredients for excellent stay nearby the ancient city! Neat rooms, wonderful swimming pool, extreme friendly and helpful staff. Only negative remark is that the atmosphere of the dining room does not fit the rest of the picture. It is too cool and reminds of a school eating room. Some small investments would make the picture... More

Comfortable rooms, good food in the restaurant, fab staff and a lovely pool. There's nothing to dislike with this hotel, i even enjoyed the gecko in my bathroom! The location is good too, just a 10 minute walk into town for some Hoppers!

Medium sized hotel, two floors, although they are expanding. Hotel is near the lion-roundabout, a 10m walk to the city. Nice room with small balcony. Enjoyed the pool, although it’s hemmed in inside the buildings and feels a bit like swimming in an amfitheatre. There was a lot of construction going on, both inside the hotel and outside since the... More

The pool was well maintained and a very welcome sight when we returned from visiting the ruins on a very hot day. I... More

Ceylan Lodge has large clean rooms that look out over the pool. It was the best value accommodation during our stay in Sri Lanka. The restaurant food is great and the staff are friendly and helpful. We had a packed breakfast prepared for us, as we missed breakfast for the early train to Colombo. There is free wi-fi, a bar,... More

The hotel is a lot smaller than the pictures make it appear which was a positive surprise. Rooms are spacious and clean with good sized bathrooms and balconies. The pool in the courtyard is a nice bonus and a great place to cool off before or after sightseeing. The breakfast/restaurant area overlooks the pool giving the whole place a charming... More
