We booked two rooms for 1 night in this hotel and we were very satisfied with the facilities and service. For anyone visiting sacred city of Anuradhapura this is perfectly located. Spacious rooms and clean bathrooms. Small but clean pool. Nice restaurant with good food. Service was excellent. Superior rooms on upper floor were not recommended for travelers with small... More

We stayed for three nights at Alakamanda - a family with two children of seven and eight years old- in a family room. We really enjoyed our stay: thanks to the swimming pool, satellite television (for the children nice to have after visiting 15 or so temples) and the excellent service. They have a set menu and a choice of... More

What a lovely place! Great value and an affordable price. Alakamanda is just outside the busy village of Anuradhapura. The staff is a team, willing to help you. The hotel is a quiet place with spacious studio's, beautiful garden and a nice, clean swimmingpool. The style is natural but modern. They have a good english breakfast, but they can also... More

A very nice hotel. Rooms were comfortable with good facilities. The hotel also has a very nice garden and perfect for relaxing.The only draw back is the location of the hotel. Its pretty far from the Anuradhapura city. However meals has to be improved and the manager needs to improve his customer friendliness.

Very scenic location. The hotel itself boost greenbrier and a lovely, clean pool. Room was clean and up to expectation. Breakfast although not buffet but good choice. Value for money. Dinner menu was limited. No choice available and I had to settle for the set menu given. No available choice. Would not mind staying again.

Spent a night here with family. A little place that nicely designed and well maintained. The garden and swimming pool are really attractive. Thumbs up for the wonderful tree-friendly setup. A bit far from the ancient city but worth the money if you have got your own transport. Superior rooms are spacious, brighter and comfy while deluxe rooms are somewhat... More

We went as a family on April holidays. We got a Sampath credit card discount for this hotel. It's located a little away from the city in a calm residential neighbourhood. The hotel doesn't have a grandiose look as seen in their website. Garden is well maintained and is quite small. The rooms are very good. I loved the way... More

Last December we stayed at Alakamanda. It's architecture and landscaping is a mix of traditional Anuradapura and modern style. Rooms are very comfortable and the staff very hospitable. Can recommend to local as well as foreign guests.
