Between town and railway station Habarana, left side of the main road you will find the perfect place for a stopover or for any kind of holidays. You won't hear the road, you can relax on the Veranda next to your well-maintained room or in the bar-area. Be advised to request meals or snacks (via e-mail or phone) BEFORE you... More

First of all this is a budget type hotel. Food is expensive. 1km from Habarana junction. Friendly staff. Must say the head chef is capable to make you feel awesome with his food: delicious. Close to Sigiriya & Minneriya. It was windy at night & I could breathe some fresh air after sometime.

I stayed at Le Grand Meaulnes for two nights in May. On arriving, the place looks beautiful with a nice garden in the front full of fruit trees and a ground level deck in front of all the rooms. We were met by the owner and one of his staff which were very friendly and helpful. The hotel is located... More

This hotel is quite lovely. The rooms are large, comfortable and spacious. The beds are good quality and comfortable. The bathroom is decent, although we never had hot water (I've noticed the same comment in other reviews, seems it's a common problem). There is a nice veranda outside bedroom to sit. The property is very nice and has a lot... More

Le Grand Meaulnes I stayed at Le Grand Meaulnes for one night in mid-April. The location is 1km north of the Habarana crossroad and 1.5km south of the railway station and Eco Park. There is a bus stop within 100m. There is a driveway from the gates at the main road and the first impression is very good. All rooms... More

After climbing Sigiriya and visiting the cave temples in Dambulla and before heading down to Polonnaruwa, this was the perfect stop for a good night's rest. The owners and the staff are joyful and chatty (in a good way), the breakfast is fresh and plentiful (we especially enjoyed the lime juice). The rooms are quite bare but very elegant and... More

Stayed here for 3 days and really enjoyed our stay. Having breakfast early in the morning wasn't an issue and was always ready on time. Simple breakfast but of fruit, toasts and eggs but was enough to get the day started. Also had dinner at the hotel and it was always good and plentiful. The rooms are large and the... More

Le Grand Meaulnes is perfectly positioned for exploring any of national or eco parks in close proximity as well as Sigiriya, Dambulla, Pollonaruwa etc. Rooms are basic but very spacious and staff was much more than helpful and friendly. Food and local cocktails prepared by them were tasty and we really enjoyed our stay there. As all of the above... More

The property is spot on for the cultural triangle...just off the road with large rooms. The staff is OK but we had a weird experience with the Owner. Even after confirming THRICE - yes thrice for the dinner prior to our arrival when we reached at around 8.30 - There was no dinner and staff was absolutely clueless about our... More

The place is located about 1km outside Habarana, off the Trinco road, so it's a nice 15min walk into town. It's very quiet and well kept, so we do not share other commentators complaints about flies, leaking toilets and no hot water. Our room was huge and well equipped. Staff took care of us very nicely, dinner and breakfasts were... More
