Wonderful stay in Anuradhapura. Hotel is close to ancient city. Only downside we had no windows in our room. Staff were great and owners were fabulous with where to go and what to do. Can rent bikes from them. They have secure parking. The food is amazing well worth getting dinner and breakfast there.

Great little homestay in the centre of town with wonderfully helpful hosts. The accommodation is up three flights of stairs, but once at the top you'll find a peaceful terrace covered in plants. The perfect place to hang out and to eat dinner. And when it comes to dinner you really must eat the food here, it's simply wonderful. My room had a balcony and although it was on the main road, I found it peaceful enough and easy to sleep (and I would consider myself a relatively light sleeper). Don't hesitate to book.

We stayed here for two nights. The owner is very kind and helpful, upon checking in we were given a free fruit juice and he explained all about everything there is to see and do in Anuradhapura. In the evening he took us to some of the stupa’s and temples where the daily evening ceremonies were happening, to a viewpoint over the lake and some other places, all for free. During this he explained a lot about the places and Buddhism. You can also rent bikes here to bike around the city. The owner also arranged for a tuktuk driver who took us to Mihintale and told us a lot about everything we saw here, really recommended! The food here is amazing, they make a different selection of curry every evening which tasted so good! The rooms are clean and comfortable, the shower is good and the WiFi works well. The rooftop lounge area is a great place to sit and relax.

We were somewhat horrified when our car pulled up at the car park the bottom of the building. It looked like a slum area. My husband walked up the 61 steps to the top floor and found a very different world. Up there it was fabulous. A wonderful roof top area. Callum and his wife Navika own the accommodation. Our room was very nice indeed. Very clean. Navika's cooking was to die for and Callum helped us so much with local knowledge.

Amidst the busy whizzing of the city centre sits this secluded little delight. A small hotel run by a passionate family. It’s only 5 rooms or so big. All are clean and in order, having all expected amenities. That what sets it apart is their dedication to be of help and service. The owner, obviously excited and warmed by the city’s rich history, set out a detailed program with which we could explore the ancient city and Mihintale. But not just for us. With us. Tailored to our time, budget, and style. The food was something special. For our 2 night stay we and ALL other guests loyally and gratefully checked in for dinner :) This is the home you seek from where to base your Anuradhapura adventure. Guaranteed!
