This hotel actually blew me away for the price. The staff treated us like a prince and princess the whole time we stayed. The room was so comfortable and the pool and garden area are peaceful and full of native birds. The restaurant serves delicious rice and curry, so good we had it both nights we stayed. Cannot recommend this...

We stayed at Margosa Lake Resort for two nights as part of our trip to explore Anuradhapura. Aside from the beautiful ancient city sites and pagodas, this hotel was a real gem in our short visit to this area. The staff are very welcoming and friendly, our room was clean, modern and comfortable. After a big day visiting the local...

The hotel is very well managed and has a homely feel. The room is big with a great bathroom with hot water. The breakfast was good and the service very attentive. The swimming pool is a great bonus to refresh after a hot day visiting the ancient city. Do go to the Lake across the road to admire the sunset...

Spent two nights here and really loved it. The main house has eight rooms but there is a new building being built next door with 13 rooms. The curries are very delicious and the priest of the menu pretty good as well. Try the chilli prawns. There is a nice swimming pool, perfect for after cycling around the sacred sites....

We spent 2 nights in this holiday villa while visiting Anuradhapura. The rooms are good quality with good fan and airco. Pool area is perfect for cooling off after a day touring. Great place for lunch as restaurant is good with a nice buffet. Would certainly advise this place as good value.

We paid 50$ for a triple room. The staff was very nice and helpful. The breakfast and dinner were very good. There is a small outdoor pool that the kids enjoyed very much. The only downside was that the maintenance level is quite low. The hot water seemed not to work (not that you need one in that weather) and...
