The staff did an excellent job to make our stay pleasurable .The hotel itself has all the amenities including a swimming pool and is situated very close to the sacred city.The greenery and the landscaped garden surrounding the hotel with the breeze coming over the paddy fields are added attractions.We enjoyed delicious meals and relaxed in comfortable rooms.

We stayed 2 nights in December 2015. It is in a very nice location, close to the ancient ruins and also closer to the railway station. The rooms overlooking the fields were quite.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Our hotel is situated just outside the sacred ancient city of Anuradhapura. Surrounded by paddy fields and trees with lots of greenery around it. You see the Jethavanaya and Ruwanvailsaya (ancient Stupa) from the top rooms. There is a river flowing close (100m away) called the Malwathuoya. We are 5 min away from the city center by taxi. We try to make you relax from stressful world you live in and make you come close to nature. Our friendly and smiling staff is available 24 hrs for you. We have a restaurant open morning to late night. We have attractive menus at affordable prices. We have en-suite toilets for all the rooms and all rooms air conditioned on your request. Most rooms are very spacious. We have a lovely pool beside our garden. Our garden is peaceful and full of wild birds. Early morning stroll in the garden is highly recommended and taste kolakeda (herbal drink). We have a conference room with capacity for 100 people. Our hotel is a popular place to wed in Anuradhapura due to surrounding scenes and good food. We are 1 hour from Wilpaththu and Minariya National Parks; we can arrange safaris on advance request. We can arrange for you to hire bicycles to see around the ancient cities and tanks. Come and experience us. ... more   less
