The room was nice, comfortable and clean. It was on the side of the road and indeed you only needed a speedy bike, a loud truck or a barking dog to wake you up. Upon reading other reviews I apprehended Maria a bit. Indeed, you do feel you need to adapt to her and not to say or do something... More

We spent three nights at Morgan's Residence and absolutely loved it. Our room was very pretty, convenient and clean. The location is superb: in a quiet and nice area of Jaffna and only 2 minutes walking away from 'the Nallur Kandaswamy Kovil Hundy temple. The food that Maria and Lawrence cooked was lovely, but above all: the way they take... More

We have backpacked around Sri Lanka for 6 weeks with our young daughter.Morgan's Residence and the local management team; Maria and Laurence, were a highlight we encountered and made our time in Jaffna special. We stayed first at Teresa's Inn; it was clean but not exactly homely. We called into Morgan's and were lucky enough to be able to reserve... More

The owners kindly greeted us when we arrived late at night. The actually room would be fine if it was clean but unfortunately we had an any infestation all over the bathroom sink. The owner came in to spray them when we asked for it to be cleaned but left a pile of dead ants on the floor after. In... More

We stayed in Morgan's Guest House for one night in our visit to Jaffna. It consists of the basic things which need to have a comfortable stay. If you are not willing to pay high for a room with decent facilities , I recommended this place. The take carers (Maria and Lawrence) are friendly and helpful. There is very limited... More

The location is not really good, but the room is clear and tidy. I arrived in Jaffna about 7:30pm, I walked in Morgan's and luckily they had room available. The room is tidy and clear. The manager's English is good and arranged a tuktuk for me going into the town to buy dinner, help me booked a van to go... More

Morgan's Place is a bright, clean guesthouse in a good location and a good value with a mercurial hostess. It's a good location, around the corner from the large temple, several ice-cream shops and Mango's restaurant. We rented the pair of bikes they have to ride into and around town. We fortunately fell into favor with the hostess, Maria, who... More

We stayed at Morgen's for two nights in March 2014 during our trip around Sri Lanka. We took an overnight bus to Jaffna which took ten hours and was at times harrowing, so it was amazing to arrive at 7 in the morning and actually find a room here. We'd read it was very popular with NGO's during the war... More

This accomodation is better know in Jaffna as Maria House, the 4 rooms are always booked from the local ONG workers so will not easy find something available. The Hotel is a local house well managed from Maria, clean and in order, I should say almost perfect. Infact the only problem was our room face the street. Forget a deep... More

Its a beautiful property, located a little off town- like other people in the forum, we had issues with the host- it felt like she constantly tried to make a quick buck, and in the end, when we were leaving, she arbitrarily demanded for an extra 500 for her "services," even though we'd been there just one night and had...
