This hotel is run by a guy who lived for 3 years in France and therefore speaks both French and English. His cook is amazing and you should try the evening meals, which, although More expensive than local restaurants, are excellent and, of course convenient. Dinner was about SRps4,500 for two of us include a drink or two. Room was... More

Firstly all the positives. The rooms are very clean, there is plenty of hot water, the air conditioning is fantastic and the western breakfast was nice. Now this may sound a little picky but the breakfast area was in the direct sunlight and for me the heat and humidity even at 8:00 am was too much to handle. Also the... More

If you are looking for a place to stay in Habarana, near Dambulla and the Sigriya Rock, then this is the place to be. Situated in a private area, surrounded by plants, trees and greenery, this hotel was a great choice for my husband and me. The room was clean and spacious, some old furniture were placed. Just beware of... More

It is a lovely place to stay for a couple of nights - but it is more secluded location. We used this as our base to see various attractions located close by (Dambulla, Sighirya, etc) and as such it was a great location. Also - there is an amazing ayurvedic SPA that was recommended (and booked by the hotel) that... More

We ate dinner outside on the terrace and had the rice and curry (with a local cocktail to start which nearly... More

We stayed at Le Grand Meaulnes for two days. Its location was convenient for us since it was a short drive to Polonnaruwa, Sigirya and Dambulla for us. We had delicious dinner prepared by the staff at an additional charge - completely worth the money. Pros: 1. Very clean rooms 2. Friendly staff 3. Helpful host 4. Convenient distance to... More

We stayed here for four nights and the service we received here was excellent. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. The manager is a warm and friendly person who was very happy to converse with us but was not obtrusive. Our room was spacious, very clean and simply but attractively furnished. The air conditioning worked well and the ceiling fan... More

First thing I would recommend is to consider booking in advance in Internet as the prices you may be said while you arrive without doing this may be much higher. We used our internet connection to book via Internet right there. Apart of this very nice place to stay in. Clean (you may only find frogs in your bathroom but... More

I stayed at the hotel for 2 nights and their service was excellent. The hotel was full but you still feel like you're their only guest. I think the hotel is very lucky to have a manager such as Kamal. I do have to warn though that food prices are double than what I've encountered in other hotels, and thrice... More

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
