We stayed at Leesha's for one night/2days. The room was a great size with large bathroom and very clean and tidy. The host is very hospitable! Breakfast was really nice and we also had dinner there which was home cooked and delicious. You can hire bikes to cycle the ruins which I think is the best way and he will... More

The hotel was a quaint little hotel close by to the ruins and temples. The hotel was being refurbished as I visited and I had a glimpse of the new rooms, which looked very nice. The normal rooms were fine, clean, mosquito netted and did the job. Where this place excelled was with the host, he is a true master... More

The gent who runs this is one in a million, the most helpful, charming, funny guy I met in my two weeks in Sri Lanka. And that's saying a lot - all Sri Lankans are lovely! The rooms are brand new and spotless. 100% have to stay here, despite there not being much in the local town. I will genuinely... More

We checked out leesha because of tripadvisor so it's only fair that we pass on our great experience there. The rooms are nice and clean. The towels are also clean which is very welcome after some of the towels in SL. The breakfast was really nice and the tea was great. But the best part was the owner. He made... More

So it is easily to managed without getting lost. The room is clean and spacious. The Sri Lankan dinner, rice and various curries dish, along with fried fish was good.... More

The rooms are very clean and so cozy. The service is excellent and the food especially the dinner was magnificent. He also organised us a tuktuk which took us to all the sights - without being charged too much...we'd love to come back :)

We stayed two nights at Leesha. Thanks to the owner's help and good advices we managed to so many things in Polonnaruwa. The room is basic but clean, it's a nice place to stay and hang out. Don't go anywhere else to have dinner, the food is just delicious and the cook is so nice. We definitely recommend this place... More

My partner and I were there for two nights in December 2013, and we had a great stay there. The owner was really nice and friendly, we had an amazing breakfast and dinner. The room and bathroom were clean, and the area is really calm. You can rent bikes here, to go visit the ruins of Polonnaruwa. Bikes are nice... More

We stayed for three nights and apart from being right next to the road it was excellent value for money. We were met at the bus stop by the owner and taken to the guest house. The room was a good size but the beds were not that comfortable and the pillows not at all comfortable. Having said that the... More
