Jayantha was a nice host, And dinner served by his neighbour is wonderful. She is just a local shy woman who cooks well and for LKR 700, it was stunning. Balcony rest needs a little more attention in that the basin tap not work, there was no hot water, the breakfast was below average. The room was nice, and basic.

Jayantha awaits you with a very warm welcome. He is a very friendly host, gave us good advice and helped us organise our trip, and took the time to sit down with us for a cultural drink! We indulged in delicious home made dinners and breakfast (even at the last minute!). Comfortable and spacious clean rooms. The balcony was a plus! Being 3km from the city center was absolutely not a issue. We definitely recommend!

After a long train ride we arrived late at Anuraghapura. There we met a tuktuk driver and he knew a nice place to stay for us. And if he know a nice place!! B-e-a-utiful room with big nice hot shower. It's just a bit of town center. So ask the tuktuk driver. He will find it for you. It's a nice and really kindly family were you'll stay.
