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.

Stayed at Alakamanda for a night. Good clean convenient rooms. Nice lawn and well maintained swimming pool. Friendly staff. Hotel is a little off the main town area. Did not have dinner, since they only had a buffet option. Breakfast buffet was good with enough options. Wifi is free, but works only near the reception area.

I stayed here one night during my tour of Anarudhapura. The staff was courteous, helpful and friendly. The room was clean and spacious. The pool was relaxing and well maintained. I would definitely stay here again.

We were on a quick visit to the city Anuradhapura and stayed there for one night in superior family rooms. Rooms were furnished on contemporary style and were perfectly refreshing and peaceful. Although the hotel is located in bit far from the main city, the ambiance was recollection of ancient Sigiriya with all the green garden landscaping among ancient ruins,... More

The setting was lovely with lush vegetation and a refreshing pool and deck to hang out on. Our room was very spacious and clean; although the mattress was terribly uncomfortable. The staff was more than friendly - provided me with a loaner plug adapter to use. The breakfast was great as well. I'd definitely recommend this hotel to others.

We were on a three week tour, and this place was perfect form what we wanted. The room was clean and spacious, the staff helpful, and the setting just right. We enjoyed the clean pool, as well as the passiing wildlife - little Gibbs, kingfishers and monkeys. Whilst the food was the usual buffet Fabre, it was well prepared.
