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

We chose Ceylan mostly because its pool which had reasonable size and is a blessing after a hot day. I received a room at the first floor (their lowest) as requested. 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

Anuradhapura is a must see destination in Sri Lanka and I find it hard to criticise this hotel as the staff are very conscientious and the pool was nice. Unfortunately this could have been a 2* rating. The reason is the building work, which will be finished in the next few months, on the new hotel next door and the... More

We ended up here for a one day stop gap and we're glad we did. The room and bathroom were of a Western standard and the pool was a real bonus on a hot afternoon. The breakfast buffet was tasty and varied and the dinner curry was so good we came back again while staying at another hotel. The staff... More

The hotelrooms are spacious and clean. Beds are comfortable. AC is very good working. There is also a small swimmingpool with some chairs to cool down. Staff is friendly and helpful. The food in the restaurant is delicious!

A very clean and friendly small hotel with an excellent restaurant. It is undergoing some renovations but that didn't interfere with our enjoyment. The air conditioned rooms are very large and comfortable Pool is refreshing and cold beer is available. 10 minutes walk a shopping street.
