The address is hard to find, it used to be 103 temple road and is now 250 something. It is the ex UN guesthouse which I assume is why Angelina Jolie stayed there. It is a very normal guesthouse, there is no point going here for a drink...it is out of town quite a way. The owner is pleasant enough... More

So, the house is nice. It's probably one of the best places to stay in Jaffna but there are some difficulties. Starting with the rooms; the room on the street side of the house is very noisy and a bit moldy. The two person bed is absolutely too small for two people. Although there is another single bed in the... More

We stayed for 3 nights last week and really enjoyed our stay. The managers were professional, friendly, helpful and just lovely. The location is ideal, 50 metres from temple, a couple of restaurants for great idly for breakfast and crazily, loads of ice cream restaurants which are the place to be at night, namely Rio's. Also, if you fancy a... More

I actually have a conflict of interest here. I wish to recommend this place, but then again - it is a small place and if lots of people would know about it I might not get my room there next time I go to Jaffna. The place is run by a couple - Maria and Lawrence, and they are just... More

We wanted to stay here, but were overbooked because they allowed another guest to stay an extra night in OUR room. They arranged another room, in a very different area, far away from the town. They were not willing to look for other options. So we had to use an afternoon to find an alternatieve, which is not easy because... More

This place is kind of a mixed bag. The house is very nice, and so is the garden. Rooms are simple-stylish, but face some drawbacks. Ours was located close to the street, and unlike stated by the owners during check-in, the street keeps on being busy throughout the night. Using earplugs helped, but be aware that it can be really... More

We had booked with Morgan's and reconfirmed our reservation before arriving. When we got there we were told there were no rooms for us. Instead we were offered rooms 'nearby' (a taxi ride at our expense) for one night before transferring back to Morgan's for a night. No apology. We said no thanks and left. We won't be going back...

I recently spent 2 nights in here in January - and quite enjoyed it. It's a house converted into a guest house - and as others have mentioned, has a nice garden, and covered area to chill out and socialize. The room was big and airy, with a large attached bath (cold water shower). I also had french doors off... More

We stayed for two nights in early December 2014. Took a fan cooled room for 2500 LKR and also paid 400 LKR each for breakfast. Maria, the housekeeper is very friendly and able to arrange a driver (she quoted 6500 a day), but we simply walked to the sights we wanted to see. Well located if you plan to visit... More
