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

We planned our trip from Spain and as we were going to spend 5 days of our 2 weeks trip in Sri Lanka in the so called "cultural triangle" we arranged just one night at this lovely place in Habarana, 2 nights in Anuradhapura and 1 in Polonnaruwa. Once we have done this part of our trip we do think... More

We spent here 5 days with our 2 small children, since Habarana is a good starting point for 1-day excursions (national parks, Polonnaruwa, Trinco, Anuradhapura). The place is out of the city, but easy to reach with tuk-tuk. Rooms are big and comfortable. Staff was extremely friendly. We especially valued their efforts to cook always something different for us every... More

We were picked up from the train station - a nice surprice - and welcomed with a lemon juice. The owner was absent but phoned us regularily to see that everything is ok. Nice, clean and big room with fridge for 35 US $ including nice breakfast. Nice dinner for 7 $. We met other guest who had booked a... More
