In general impressions about the hotel are good. It's clean, the rooms are spacious and well furnished, the equipment is working properly. You can see in the room a mosquito net. Necessary detail - there is an awful lot of mosquitoes in the night. Breakfast in the hotel restaurant (included into the price, although we bargained a small discount) is... More

We stayed here as part of an arranged tour with a driver, he chose the accommodation. The hosts were pleasant, the rooms average in terms of space, cleanliness and bathroom etc. Paid 3500 rupee for the night inc breakfast.

Although the bathroom was dirty and the bed smelled like mold, it has nice surroundings. The food was good, but a bit pricey.

This guest house was recommended to us by a Tuk Tuk Driver that took us to the bus station in Anurdhapura (where we started our journey to Polonnaruwa). The staff were extremely friendly and tried their best (on several occassions) to sell us day trips to Minneriya & take us around their wood carving shop. They did help to organise... More

Off the main road, this little guest house offers some peace and quiet to relax after some exhausting sightseeing in Polonnaruwa. The rooms are clean and spacious enough with attached bathroom. Some are AC, some non-AC for whatever budget you are traveling on. The rates are appropriate for what you get. You can also have food there, which is delicious.... More
