This new hotel is very nicely build with good quality materials. However, when the construction was left to the decorators something went wrong. No chair in the room, amateur fixing of the TV & STB, no hand towels, no shampoo and others, etc. The staff is extremely nice and proud of the job, everybody wants to help... but they lack... More

What a disappointment! Very poorly designed rooms where the ceiling is not connected to the walls and so no wonder the mossies and noise get through. The door opens straight from the outside so very difficult to keep the mosquitoes out. The windows have shutters on them but you can't open them because there is a mosquito screen nailed in... More

We were amazed that this is only two years old. For the price one would expect a room safe, a fridge, a basin plug, a hand towel, more than one pillow, a bedside table on each side of the double bed, the shower gel/shampoo and tea/coffee to be replaced each day. Very noisy at night so had to run the... More

I recommend this place all tourists. Clean rooms and washrooms. Friendly staff. They even cooked the 'Kiripindu' with lot of care and devotion. It is nestled away from the city traffic. Food is very tasty.

Outside the city you'll find this small hotel. Especially the superior rooms are nice, comfortable with a good bed and bathroom. Wifi is good. Staff is doing their best but sometimes you need to be clear about your request. Dinner and breakfast were nice.

Our family, 2 adults and 2 boys (aged 8 and 10), really enjoyed staying at Alakamanda. It is a small and friendly place. It is situatated in a calm area, a 30 minute walk to Anuradhapura or a few minuetes by tuktuk. The room (triple room) was big enough for the four of us. The shower was perfect, warm water... More

Hotel is tastefully built. Staff pleasant and helpful. Rooms are spacious and good air-conditioning. However the following points make it a poor environment. We stayed for 3 nights, the rooms are full of mosquitoes. Requested many times mosquito repellent. Due to this the sleep quality was very poor. Cleanliness of the rooms are not very good. Room carpets, bed cushions... More

A really nice place to stay. Rooms in the new section at the rear are large, modern and very comfortable. The grounds are peaceful and the swimming pool is clean and a great relief from the heat. Food was excellent and all staff were fantastic. Location is just out of town so need a tuk tuk and nothing much to... More
