We got a bright and clean room next to the shared balcony. It was really good! Free WiFi and all kind of drinks available. They offer bikes for hire, but the combination of Jaffna roads and their saddles is quite painful ;)

Decent bed and breakfast place that provides good value for money and clean rooms. We paid 2,750 rupees including a/c and it would have been 2,000 without. Breakfast was overcooked and a bit expensive, I would recommend going somewhere else. Location was good, not too far from the main Hindu Kovil temple.

We stayed here for two nights and eventually moved to Morgans for the remainder of our stay in Jaffna. While the place was clean and the owner helpful it was missing those extra things that have made our trip in Sri Lanka (6 weeks) so special. The owner presented as tired, parts of the property look tired, animals were in... More

The rooms are clean and well maintained. Had to ask for towel and toilet paper. Staff were friendly enough,but owner seemed to have a "not really bothered attitude" when trying to engage in conversation and asking about train/bus/travel times. Food was average. A little out of the way,but peaceful at nights. Just an "ok" place. Room was reasonable price.

We stayed for four nights while in Jaffna. The room worked well and at 2750 rupees it was good value. The aircon, fan and bathroom all worked. There is no hot water but it's not needed. We got extra pillows that we asked for and the staff were pleasant. I had a continental breakfast the first day and it was... More

Friendly staff, the owner is a delight, the food is not bad at all, the rooms are good value (I believe I paid like 2000 or 2500 rps), they have bicycles, they have wifi, and the vibe is a very nice and laid back one. Jaffna, though well visited, is a welcome break from the booming tourism elsewhere.

Theresa inn is a great place to relax after a long day of exploring Jaffna. The rooms are clean and comfortable, the dogs are very cute and it's only a short stroll to Nallur temple. The owner was very helpful and organised a cheaper bus ticket for us to come to colombo! Thanks so much!

Owner/manager was a very grumpy and difficult person to deal with.. he lied about our room being ready on arrival and the price (both confirmed the night before on phone). Rabbits, dogs and fish all kept in poor condition on the property. The most mosquitoes in a room I've ever seen in my life, and no nets are provided. Wi-Fi... More

Good location, in a backpacker area, simple, clean and reasonably priced. Owner's English was excellent and he was informative about transport and tours of islands.You could hire his tuk tuk and taxi service available. Good mosquito net in room. Had bus timetable and other useful info on wall, we didn't find this in any other guest house in Sri Lanka.... More

Decent, clean room. Helpful owner. Good price. Overall, it's a suitable place, but really not the wonderful place that the LP would have you believe it is. Think of it as an affordable and comfortable room and not as a memorable experience making up part of your trip to the north. I've already forgotten what the bed was like.
