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

Room a bit overpriced, even I booked single room, I got large dorm-type room with 3beds... Room full of mosquitos upon arrival. Unpleasant stink in the bathtoom. These things not acceptable considering the price I paid for the room. Would I stay again? No.

This place is not a lake resort, only the name suggests it. Good sides - Very well architectured rooms - Free billiards by the pool Downsides - Name suggests lake resort however, there is nothing by the lake side such as a cafe, restaurant, or just putting tables for dinner. - Facility lies in a remote location, it is not...

A historical ambience with comfortable well architectured rooms. The food was amazing and the view from the rooms presented nature in its glory and variety.The hotel faces a lake that adds to the scenic value of the hotel. A memorable stay.

Rooms were well cleaning. But Meal times were very inconvenient. Even though there weren't many guests, there wasn't enough food. The food was horrible: specially the breakfast.(pasty items... More
