The rooms are clean well organised with fans and a/c. Not large but adequate. The pool is wonderful and well maintained. It's along the road past the incomplete extension but that Hartley matters. Staff friendly and helpful. Nice old Austin A40 in the foyer, an appropriate level copy of the White Rolls and Mercedes in the Geoffrey Bawa house. The... More

Not our first choice but we got stuck with it due to lack of hotels in the area. Ordering breakfast was a bit of a haggle though it was included in the hotel bookings. Not the cleanest hotel, but not extremely dirty either. They need to update bathroom fixtures, AC was noisy. Manager was very friendly but others need some... More

This busy hotel consists of three floors of quite small and basic rooms which are clean if a little faded (an upgrade would be helpful), they are very reasonably priced at about $30 per night, half board. Beware however there appears to be no lift that we could see. It is located in a quiet part of the city near... More

We stayed there for two nights while visiting Jaffna and the area 6-8 january. The rooms were og, the food ok and the serwise all right. The hotel is in walking distance to the Hindu Tempel Nallur Kandadaswarmy - and the hotel has a nice swining pool.

we had a clean and quiet room with a small balcony facing south, could sleep with open window (except in the 3rd night: Hindu festival with lots of noise), no moscitos at night (but also no moscito net!). The room was a bit small but well equipped with A/C, TV and a good mattress. Bathroom was large enough with a... More

Lux Etoiles is well located in a quiet district of Jaffna near the Nallur temple. The hotel is not luxurious but very good for Jaffna and very clean and exceptionally good value. The staff were friendly, pizzas good and wifi works well in the lobby. They were also good at providing advice on getting around Jaffna and introduced us to... More

Great experience, warm and helpful staff, delicious food, Air conditioning, ice cold beer and a lovely pool. We would definitely go back there. Yes, there were things that could be changed - mosquito nets for guests who want them, a better shower. However rooms were spotless, the location was central to the places we wanted to go to and prices... More

Wasn't up to my expectation, Staff really tried hard to please, but coming from Switzerland,my husband and I were disappointed, we thought, it would be more comfortable than it was :( had to walk round to door to switch on the only light in room to use toilet in the night, no bedside lighting; shower very basic; maybe we'd go...

After a few days in Jaffna, any foreigner starts to crave for some more familiar food. Search no further and have a sea-food pizza (but ask them to remove ALL the chillies as they do not belong on a pizza) and have it with a chilled beer (another rarity in Jaffna to find that in a restaurant) in their airconditioned...

The food was awesome - especially the pizza! But they will give you any kind of cuisine and it's all good. Room was basic and tiny but both room and bathroom were super clean. Walking distance to the Nallur Temple and Rio Ice Cream. Very friendly and courteous service. Will definitely go there again.
