Private house in a quiet street but very close to the centre. Hot water, good wifi and clean rooms. The lady that runs the place is very friendly and tries to make you feel at home. She cooked us a nice dinner with excellent home made chilly paste. (I asked for a spicy meal. She is aware that some foreigners... More

This is the first homestay in Sri Lanka where it actually felt like a homestay and not a guest house. Nisha is very helpful and friendly. She drew me maps of how to get to the museum, to get ticket etc to the ruins. On leaving she even took me to the bus stop on her scooter to make sure... More

Great little place in a quiet neighborhood. Archaeological sites are within walking distance. Small, but very comfortable and clean room. Bathroom also clean and has reliable hot water. Wi-Fi works great. Nisha is a most generous, kind and helpful hostess. She's also a fantastic cook. Enjoyed her breakfasts and dinners very much.

Stayed in Rock Cascade for 2 nights. It was comfortable, clean, and well located just 2km from the sacred city. The host, Nisha, was very friendly, chatty and helpful. She also cooks well, and I ate my 2 breakfasts and 1 dinner there. Good, wholesome Sri Lankan home-cooked meals. Yum! The place is newly renovated, so the rooms are great... More

This was a very nice place to stay if looking for something in the lower price range. Good location for taking a bike (or walk) to see the ruins. The owner was very friendly and really tried to make us feel welcome. Fresh, clean and newly renovated room with fan. Nice breakfast.

Very warm and welcoming host who helped us plan our trip to the ancient city, cooked for us and was in general a very nice person. Rooms were nice and basic if a bit sparse but this was what we were looking for. Great location as well. Would definitely recommend, especially for the reasonable price.

Stayed here for a couple of nights. The highlight by far was the food. Nisha is a great cook. I had the rice with curries option both nights. At 450 rupees, it was a bit pricey by local standards, but worth it. There are only three rooms here, and the one I stayed in was quite comfortable with big fan... More

We have spent 3days in Polonnaruwa and experienced a warm welcome and good care by Nisha. She is a very enthusiastic, energetic and warm person and made sure we spent our time well: helped to direct us, help with organizing pick transport and even catch the right bus. She cooks passionately and made us to try variety of home made... More

I know is a guesthouse but the food is amazing, the best we have in our trip in Sri Lanka so far. So, if you want a affordable place, close to the main ruins, bicycles and authentic local food, these the place, just be sure to pay for a/c room, it is really hot in Polonnaruwa.
