We were very impressed with Hotel Alakamanda. Very clean room, good service, excellent food. They organised sightseeing for us including Mihintale which was definitely worth seeing. The pool was great, good a/c and our room had a mosquito net. Would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone travelling on a budget. I would also recommend getting a driver to see the... More

This is a small hotel, very well kept, with very friendly staff, always helpfull to resolve problems, although they could not fix some bathroom-problems - this may be due to the qualtiy. We booked a superior room, which is really nice, the room is upstairs and of a good size with all modern amenities. You have a private terrace as... More

Fairly new hotel, in a quiet neighbourhood. A bit hard to find, ask directions. Clean and spacious rooms. Nice garden with swimming pool. Good choice of western food but they are happy to serve you a nice Sri Lankan curry.

We stayed here one night while exploring Anuradhapura's sights. Our room was clean, comfortable, and very spacious. Staff was very friendly and helpful. As others have said- it's a little difficult to find, so mapping out directions ahead of time is helpful. Breakfast was good, although we were less impressed with dinner. Skip the western-style stuff on the main buffet... More

Stayed one night in this new hotel that opened in April 2013. Staff very welcoming and helpful. I asked to borrow a kitchen knife for our picnic on our veranda and they were very gracious. Had a small difficulty with the laundry and immediately the front desk person said there would be no charge for the laundry. Landscaping is lovely... More

The hotel is one of a few modern, comfortable and new hotels that have come up in Anuradhapura. Hotel is in a convenient location about 2 km from the city centre and not very far from the majestic historical sights of Anuradhapura. Staff are friendly and welcoming. Rooms are modern, clean and comfortable, each with a private verandah/seating area. They... More

A virtually brand new hotel in a quiet residential area. It took us a while to find it but was well worth it! Our room was in middle of the first row on the left as you enter the grounds. This was not one of the cheaper rooms but we thought it reepresented very good value.. It was spacious, clean... More

We chose this hotel after reading reviews on Trip Advisor and were not at all disappointed. Completely met our expectations - a clean, quiet, average hotel. Rooms well kept and comfortable, and friendly staff, although not well trained in hotel customer service. We were happy with our stay. We asked for local food and our requests were met - we... More

Our room smelt really damp. We were in the cheaper rooms - the first room on the left. The damp smell and damp feeling really put me off the place to the extent that we left after a day having paid in advance for two. The room was decorated to a high standard and was better furnished than many other... More
