This place is not so bad, the rooms are spacious, a/c'd and comfy. We arrived very late and they guys were very accommodating which was great. Unfortunately, one of our rooms had a leaking toilet and neither of our rooms had working showers or hot water - hence my pretty harsh review. Think the basics of hot water and a... More

Good rooms, friendly staff and the best fresh lime juices from the garden! (We did not find any other place with a better lime juice in Sri Lanka !) Good place to stay for visiting Sigiriya, Polonnaruwa and Aukana. There were many flies during the day.

Located just 1km outside the centre of Habarana, this place is a great find. Large, clean and comfortable rooms with new air conditioners. Hosts prepare a great breakfast included in tariff (usually cooked English/American style breakfast, but they may do a Sri Lankan style breakfast with milk rice and sambal if you ask politely) and will prepare filling, tasty dinners...

We only stayed one night at the hotel and we enjoyed having such a big luxurious room. The rooms and bathrooms are really clean and even provide AC and a TV. The area is really quiet and you can relax well on the terrace. The food was also quite good, could have been a bit more spicy but the taste... More

This is a very nice hotel conveniently located between Sigiriya, Polonnaruwa and Minneryia. The train station is also very close. The rooms are spacious and clean. They all have a porch which is an ideal place to relax after a day of sightseeing. The food was simple but delicious and the owner and staff are lovely!

Le Grand Meaulnes was picked for its good reviews on TP. The place is set 100m from the main Habarana Road and can be quiet noisy if you are looking for a calm and relaxing setting. Good base though to explore Minneriya Park / Sigiriya and Polonnaruwa. Pretty basic place, rooms are spacious with high ceilings and a big shared... More

We picked this place because of its handy location in the middle of the cultural triangle. Lovely big room wtih a comfortable bed (although the top sheet was very small) and good bathroom. Two lovely comfortable chairs on the shared verandah were a perfect place to sit at the end of the day and look onto their plantation garden. The... More

I choose this hotel for it's situation - it's in the middle of the cultural triangle. I like the huge room and the veranda, but the bathroom is Sri Lankan standard, like the garden, which is messy and the management don't care about it. The hotel is superb for 1-2 nights, but because is there nothing (no pool, playgroud for... More

We stayed here for 5 nights in December. The bungalow, with it's lovely veranda is situated well off the road in a lush garden. The room (in the new wing) was very spacious and opened directly on to the veranda - perfect for sipping a beer in the sub tropical evening. The highlight was the hospitatilaty and attention to detail... More
