“Home away home”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 18, 2013

Absolutely loved the stay in this little guest house. The staff & owner made our stay feel like a home away from home. If you are after some quiet atmosphere and close to nature, this is a perfect place & I highly recommend it. The rooms are clean & tidy..something I always look for - clean bathrooms and they didn't disappoint me :) Rooms are A/C which added a bit of luxury. Great food, nice rooms, cheap accommodation...what more can I ask for :)

We traveled in Sri Lanka for 4 weeks in May (sorry for the late review), so we experienced a lot of guesthouses. We always stayed in the Trip Advisor No.1 guesthouse, and Little Paradise guesthouse was our absolute favorite of all. The value is tremendous. The guesthouse is quiet, beautiful, the rooms are very well decorated, tasteful, very clean and very well maintained. It even has the best bathroom we've seen in Sri Lanka. All for a more than reasonable price. Also the food is very very good. We highly recommend you order a dinner there. To top it all off, the owner and staff are beyond helpful and nice. I had a medical issue there and the owner drove me to the hospital, waited there with me, and drove me to a pharmacy, and back to the guesthouse. I also had my birthday while staying there, and she made me the most beautiful and delicious cake. For free! You should visit Sri Lanka just to have a chance to stay there ;)

We really enjoyed staying in Little Paradise Tourist Guest House! The location is perfect and especially in the evening when we sat on our balcony watching the local guys playing cricket. Although we did not need the a/c, it was nice to have the option. The shower was really good, probably the best one we had in Sri Lanka! Aruni is so helpful and arranged tuk tuks and also confirmed our next accomodation for us. Lovely little eating area downstairs, nice and cozy, with great food especially the coconut sambal and rotis at breakfast! I would definitely come back to Little Paradise Guest House next time I'm in Anuradhapura.

A nice guesthouse in Anuradhapura, with great service and a very good breakfast. Rooms are fine. Upstairs rooms have nice balconies. The guesthouse is a bit hard to find at first, because it's nicely located away from the big roads.

This was one of the cheapest places we stayed in Sri Lanka and one of the best. The rooms are clean and tidy, the welcome warm and friendly. The home cooked dinner was outstanding - very substantial and great value. They took care of our sightseeing needs - a tuktuk tour of the main sites, also organised a jeep tour to Wilpatthu at very short notice.

We stayed here for two nights. The rooms were comfortable, We found the service to be good, but unexceptional - as was the food. The owner seemed kind, but her English was poor, and she did not honour the Tripadvisor discount coupon that influenced our choice of this guesthouse. On the whole, I`d say that Anuradhapura has little to recommend it unless you are very interested in the history of Buddhism in Sri Lanka.
