A comfortable, friendly and well located hotel on Temple Rd. It is walking distance to nearby temples, ice-cream shops and about 15 mins walk to Jaffna city centre, with the fort not much further. Rooms are relatively modern and very clean. Restaurant serves very good vegan (only) food. There's also a small pool, unusual for a small hotel like this.... More

It is a basic hotel with just enough amenities. The rooms are air conditioned. It was quite warm when we came out of the room. The reception and the food serving area has no air conditioning. The pool is at an odd location in front of the building, We did not see anyone using it. Food was vegetarian. Breakfast buffet... More

I stayed 3 nights in Jaffna Heritage. Lovely hotel, an oasis of calm in more hectic surroundings. The hotel oozes charm and refinement and the hosts and staff go great length to make your stay enjoyable. Breakfast is brilliant. On the improvement side, as reported wifi is a bit moody and mosquitos attack you fast when you step out of... More

An extremely friendly hotel with excellent food (vegetarian only) and no alcohol. The only minor critique would be the limited wifi coverage. Within the grounds is a small pool and the hotel is not far away from the main temple or the excellent and very busy Rio ice cream parlour

Quiet surroundings. Located walking distance from Nallur Kandasamy temple. Rooms good. Not a big hotel. Very clean and quiet. Breakfast was local cuisine. Had pooris,rotis,dosa with trimming. Really good breakfast. Chef was friendly too. Located next to RIO ice cream shop. Should try the ice cream and cakes here.

Beautifully maintained site, very friendly staff, quiet surroundings and a clean and comfortable hotel. Our trip was only for a couple of days and they made it worth while, though quite a bit pricey for Jaffna!

Given today's accommodation in Jaffna, this is a good place, I'd recommend for friends and families with kids. It's new and decent facilities. Great food (veg only I think but I just loved the dosai) plus the chap who runs that place gave such a warm and welcome feeling! Premises consists of the main hotel plus a villa across the... More

I was a big fan of the hotel in October 2014. I still believe its the best in Jaffna for cleanliness. The staff who speak English are few. Shanti is the only one that gets anything done. I don't know why people praise the vegetarian food - there are much better restaurants in Jaffna that serve better food. I don't... More

They only serve vegetarian food, But the food is very tasty. for me the reason I will visit that place again is the food. The hotel is bit out of the city (3KM) But you can walk to the city... More
