I visited Miridiya Lake Resort three years ago and it was alright, nothing special. But recently under the recommendation of one of my closest friends I visited again! I was surprised on how the new management has taken Miridiya Lake Resort to a whole new level. Miridiya Lake Resort has transformed its amenities from the entrance to its amazing food... More

The hotel is located next to the lake, has a swimming pool, and the room that I had overlooked the garden and the pool. It was very relaxing, thought it was quite filled with people - I didn't get disturbed or felt overcrowded. The restaurant is okay. The staff speak very little english and tend to push you for the...

perfect place to stay and enjoy the historical city of Anuradhapura.This hotel does justice to the cultural ambience that this glorious city brings with a twist of modern hospitality with amazing rooms and well organized in house service.

Situated in the heart of the city, in a small plot of greenery making it soothing in the burning hot day time in Anuradhapura, this little hotel gives you the ideal hub for travelling & site seeing. In the first place I should say that this not a luxury hotel if you seek a more comfy & star studded facilities,... More

We stayed there about a week ago in the new year season, and the hotel was full of guests. The rooms are average in size and quality, but was worth the money we paid. Nice big swimming pool and garden. Food is great in quality and variety. Location is nice, and close to the lake. and not too far from... More

The drive from Colombo to Anuradhapura was one of the most relaxing and hassle free drives for a very long time. We reached our destination in a mere three and a half hours and that too driving well within all the designated speed limits. Miridiya Lake resort is a mid size hotel which is a bit off the main town... More

I been to the hotel with my family and some friends,overall it's has a good set up but poorly managed house keeping process. I would say that the staff is generally helpful and discipline,but they are not trained by the management to perform their task only on house keeping functionalities. Housekeeping had no understanding on what they need to do... More
