Tilko staff reserved Charty resort for me in December 2014. They never disclosed the reality of Charty resort and I could not believe my eyes when I reached the place. I was fortunate enough to meet a very helpful gentleman accidently on Nagadeepa road who helped me to find a proper place on the same day evening to stay. Charty... More

Spend a couple of nights at the hotel last month. One big plus is their spacious rooms. Have decent and friendly staff, great food (specially the seafood items). Although I had a little feeling that they are not maintaining fitting in the bathroom properly, it is a minor issue.

My husband and I stayed for two nights during our visit to Jaffna. The room was clean. The breakfast on offer was good with a varied menu. We also had lunch there and it was good value for money. The staff were friendly and understood English.

I think the hotel's management has taken all the constructive criticism and upgrades rooms, bathrooms and general hotel management. I found service to be quick and efficient which was not the case in northern hotels in general. The room was clean and devoid of any questionable odors. Comfortable bed, well AC'd and relatively better bathrooms that other hotels in Jaffna... More
