The building has now been coverted into the British Council. Things are changing fast in Jaffna. The location will open December 2013 and include a cultural centre. If a pub will be available is not confirmed yet.

The pool was green and did not look safe for swimming. Bathroom was old but clean. Beds were fine. The guys that run it speak only a little English but they are friendly and will arrange tuk tuks to take you around the area. Drinks for sale in reception is handy. For the area and the price this is an... More

We moved here from Green Grass Hotel after spending one night. We moved because we thought Green Grass was over priced at 3600Rs. Blue Haven is similarly priced at 3500Rs, but has larger rooms, hence we changed hotel. The rooms were ok, clean enough, but the t.v. seldom worked e.g. It would be fuzzy then just a plain blue screen.... More

We had looked at some pretty awful options around the corner and settled for this one. There are other places in Jaffna, but some of them are frankly a rip off for what they offer - this is a good choice for the price, and our room was fine - airconditioning and bathroom. Its an old hotel so the rooms... More

Don't go expecting 5-star service. But for the price and considering the context and the city it was good. The staff and the manager was very helpful, friendly and in short made us feel at home. The rooms were very basic - air conditioned, but nothing else. But for the price, you really cannot expect much more. Bathrooms were old... More

Came into Jaffna during a trip with friends to the North and East of the island. We had not made any bookings and were driving around looking for a place to stay around 10pm in what seemed like a ghost town at that time. When we found this place the staff we welcomed us in and provided us with a... More

I recently stayed here and was in fact pleased with the hotel as a whole. I have seen the reviews many tourists have made on hotels in Jaffna in general and I think its extremely unfair for them to even make such comments. People in Jaffna have been through so much and I personally think they have come along way.... More

Hardly any reception, front office staff were terrible as they couldn't speak or understand English at all. We were given a triple room but only one towel and no sheets to cover oneself. There were no tea/coffee making facilities and not even a single glass to drink water. The bathroom was dirty. Breakfast was hopeless and contained a lot of... More
