Good location for those using rail transport. Low water pressure for bathrooms. Sheets were very thin, mattress can be seen through. Towels were old and dis colored. On a positive note, the hotel has a good restaurant. Local Yarl food served. Kool, crab curry well prepared. Buffet breakfast was good.

Like most Jaffna places Green Grass has some catch up to do with current market standards, but the reasonable price level compensates partly. Location great, immediately behind railway station and enough shops and restaurants near; about 10-15 mins walk from bazaar area. Rooms: depends vastly on renovated or not. The renovated (double) we had, actually a twin (206), was spacious... More

Dropped by for a Jaffna crab curry lunch and had a good taste of Jaffna food. Place is a bit crowded but service was good. Ordered two crab curry with rice and also a separate Jaffna crab curry for three people. Worth a visit.

If peace and quiet is what you are after then this is not the place for you. Extremely noisy and very basic hotel. Our room had a AC and about 20 Cable channels, hot water shower in which the hot water did not work. You need to live on mineral water over here even to brush your teeth. Food was... More

Stayed two nights and were made to feel very welcome. The rooms were small, but clean and the bed comfortable, but could use a little upgrading. Food was great, with breakfast buffet to suit local and western. After touring the fort, was great to come back for a swim and cool drink. Management and staff were only too happy to... More

The hotel needs some refurbishment. Rooms are basic and quite small. The state of the hotel does not justify the high prices charged. The restaurant is far too small for the size of the hotel and is very unattractive, tucked away in a corner behind reception. We did not enjoy our meals there.
