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 only stayed here from the one night on the way from Kandy to Kalkudah but we certainly made the most of our stay! On arrival we were greeted with sweet fresh lime juice, picked straight from the beautiful garden. We explained that we were looking to visit Sigiriya and the Minneriya National Park (to witness the incredible elephant migration)... More

This family hotel is very clean. The rooms are spacious and comfy. Though being on the main road, the dense trees in front block outside road noise completely, so it's very calm and feels like in the middle of the jungle. Also perfectly located close to a crossroad if you want to visit Polonuwara, Sigiriya and Anuradhapura, like we did... More
