We were one night in Lake Wave, in the best room there is, with balcony and view at the lake. There is a lovely garden and we swam in the lake! Owner's Upali's wife Susanda cooked us a good meal and next morning a good breakfast. The guesthouse is on bicycling distance from shops and the Ancient City. There are...

situated in a quiet area by a lake, it is a great base to explore the city from. the owner and his wife are the friendliest people i've encountered, ready to help with anything you need, or even think you might need! I'd encourage anyone to stay here!

Love the Lake Wave. Amazing hosts, very casual and easy going - good bloke. Ideally located close to town and the lake views are great. Get a room with a balcony. Some good cheap food in town and lots of religious sites to visit if that is your want.

アヌラーダプラのnew railway st.の徒歩5分程度の場所です。ところどころ、宿への案内が立っているので迷わないかと思います。もし、トゥクトゥクで駅から向かうなら100ルピー程度だと思います。 駅前に大きなスーパーがありますし、夕食などはスーパー併設のレストランを利用しました。朝食付きで、簡単なものでしたが充分でした。 遺跡地区へは、トゥクトゥクか自転車が良いようです。私たちは、宿で自転車を一台400ルピーで借りて回りました。だいたい半日から1日あれば充分楽しめます。 宿は目の前が湖で朝はとても綺麗です。シャワーは水でしたが、気温が熱いので問題ないかと思います。夜窓を閉め切ってしまうと、ものすごく暑いので、窓を開けて蚊帳を使へば少し涼しくなります。オーナー夫妻は明るく気さくな方々で、息子さんが千葉で働いているようです。

We stayed there for two nights, it is great location-near bus station and the sacred city and right next to lake where you can chill and relax. The owner was really nice, he gave us some great tips. It was also possible to rent a bike there to take a bike trip to sacred city. You can order there also...

Opali and his wife are very welcoming. You'll feel at home. He will tell you where to go, which is not in the books! Insiders places and really worth it! If he has the time, he'll bring you. Had a good breakfast and loved the food in the evening! Around there's a main street with a big supermarket and tuktuks...
