We moved there after 2 horror nights at Sarras guesthouse.The room was clean and spacious with a cute alcove.We paid 4000 a night which included ac which we did not want or need, and didn't use but had to take it if we wanted the room.But it was towards the end of our trip, and we were starting to splurge...

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

We spent three nights at Morgan's. Maria could not have been more welcoming and friendly. Lawrence organised several trips for us which meant it was very convenient and easy for us to get around and visit different places.The rooms were comfortable and clean and airy. The house is charming. The reason I am giving Morgan's a five star review is... More

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
