“The place to stay in Anuradhapura!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 19, 2013

We stayed here for one night during a four-day tour of northern Sri Lanka. It was by far the best hotel we stayed in during the trip!

Staff were extremely pleasant and nothing was too much trouble. The room was excellent with a great view of the town and everything a tourist needs! The bathroom was modern with a wonderful shower and plenty of hot water, a hair drier and spotlessly clean. The room itself was large had TV, an empty fridge, a kettle with tea and coffee sachets and a good air-conditioner. There were also two comfortable chairs, coffee table and a writing desk as well as the beds.

We stayed on a half-board basis. The food was exceptionally good, beautifully cooked and well-presented, with a choice of both Sri Lankan and Western menus. The restaurant is well-furnished and impressive. Both dinner and breakfast were enjoyable events.

There was free Wi-Fi in the reception area which was a bonus. The only thing missing was a bottle of water in our room!

This hotel is one I would go back to as it was of such a very high quality.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 29, 2013

It has all the facilities you need if your planning a stay for short period of time. Confortable rooms, clean bathrooms, satellite tv. Furthermore it is situated in the ideal location for pilgrims and tourists to visit sacred city. Service in overall was really good. Staff was really friendly and helpful. We had Sri Lankan food and the quality was satisfactory.
But the hotel lack certain conforts such as swimming pool, pool table and at-least a garden to walk around. Its more like a apartment in colombo. But I recommend this hotel for short stay, ideally for a overnight stay.

Hotel Dulyana is an ideal location for an overnight stay in Anuradhapura. The rooms are comfortable and spaciou whilst the toilets are clean and well equipped. The rooms are air conditioned, consist of a mini bar and has a satellite TV connection. The breakfast buffet was great as well. Whilst the hotel does not have a swimming pool or sprawling gardens and is situate atop a shopping centre, it is definitely a comfortable rest for pilgrims as well as sight seeing tourists. Recomandable.
