We arrived in Anuradapura just after dark and hadn't booked a hotel in advance. We fancied somewhere in the town, near local restaurants but found nothing that appealed - they obviously want tourists out of town! We then stumbled across Ceylan Lodge. It was clean, air con, with a swimming pool but we were almost put off by the fact... More

The staff here in the restaurant are unreal! Beds are comfortable but bathroom is basic and our toilet was coming off the wall... Great pool, fantastic location and very secure. Great for a budget friendly traveler.

The hotel has nice rooms and a great pool. For Sri Lankan standards everything is quite up to date and clean. Unfortunately they are building a few more storeys on the hotel and there's a lot of building going on in the neighbourhood. This didn't wake us up at night or anything, but it made the hotel lose quite a... More

We stayed for two nights in Ceylan Lodge. It hotel is still under construction but this don't affect your stay. The pool is nice and really great after a day of cycling!

Lodge needs an update. Poor plumbing - shower flooded bathroom. Nice pool. Poor television reception and no remote. Room very basic and could do with refresh. Restaurant is ok but nothing outstanding.

We arrived at the Ceylon Lodge at 10.00pm, having driven from Columbo Airport. On our arrival, we were met by several who insisted we eat before even checking in. The full buffet meal was offered and was hot and tasty along with a delicious dessert. They also produced at our request ice cold beers. The breakfast was more than adequate.... More

Good size, windows at three sides. Nice bathroom, only odd thing is the put the shower in the middle ( no curtain or wall) and the toilet in the... More

Though exterior is not wellcoming as soon as you enter the interior is welcoming in addition to the friendly staff at the reception desk. Staff very helpful. I got a new room which are very comfortable. Bathroom was western standard. As a building project was on going the view from the balcony was disappointing. Tasty meals in a quiet restaurant....

The exterior of this hotel from the side road looks unpromising but on arrival the lobby, pool and restaurant are welcoming. Rooms are very comfortable and the service (friendliness and efficiency) is excellent
