This year on our trip back to Sri Lanka, we decided to go back to Palm Garden, i remember last time the rooms and the bathroom was a bit "worn down" and was calling for some refurbishment, but the surrounding green and wildlife of this hotel kept calling us back. And was really glad we went back, because it was... More

It was our first night in Sri Lanka and we didn't know what to expect. We arrived after sunset, and it seemed to be located in quite a non-descript area. Upon reaching the hotel though, we quickly realised how large and lush the compounds are. It had a lovely blue lit pool, tropical architecture and planning, and many many trees... More

We were a group of 8 - 3 bikkunis, a family of 3 and my spouse and I. It was our first stay at this place and we did not know what to expect - especially after the traumatic stay in Kandy. The setting was nice - the reception area is non-aircondition - and without any overhead fans - it... More

This was our first stop on a 2 week visit to Sri Lanka.We had an overnight flight and this was exactly what wqe needed. Groups of 3 bungalows nestled amongst the trees, very tranquil and lovely staff. The food was very good. We would highly recommend this hotel

We stayed 2 nights at this hotel in a standard room with no problems. We cannot speak highly enough regarding the treatment we received & the surroundings were again picturesque. I intend going back with my son for a holiday sometime next year.

We stayed 2 nights while visiting Anuradhapuraya. This was a lovely hotel with beautiful grounds, set well back from the road. Breakfast was served to your table rather than buffet. We ate at the hotel both nights and food overall was very good. Swimming pool was large and grounds were lovely. Rooms were comfortable. Monkeys visited the area, and apparently... More

Ideal for a stopover at Anuradhapuraya, don't think I would want to spend any more than one night here as rooms were a little basic. We had a standard room as we were only staying one night so it was really bed and breakfast for us and off again straight after, but the accommodation was exactly what was needed Quite... More

Beautifully designed hotel Very hot here and you have to eat in non air conditioned rooms so it is good to be able to retreat to your air conditioned room . Usual complaint about Sri Lanka hotels of lack of plug points to charge up the electronic gadgets we all have these days . Also the internet albeit free was... More

It's a beautiful setting and the gardens are full of interesting trees and other wildlife. The lake at the back is a must in the evening, particularly if you are interested in birds. We would have preferred not to have found a frog under the bed and another, heard all night but not discovered until the morning, in the shower!... More

I can find nothing good to say about this hotel. The rooms are in cottages around the grounds and some are a very long way from the hotel main building. We were in room 129, about 300 yards away. Not too bad in daylight, but long and difficult at night since the lighting is extremely poor. The room directions were... More
