It was a pleasant stay and great location in Jaffna (very close to the Dutch fort). The rooms are spacious, comfortable and there is wifi in the room. The hotel has a very nice garden and a lovely English-style bar, the best we have seen in Jaffna during our stay. I recommend the hotel for exploring Jaffna and the islands... More

We stayed here in 2014. The place was generally clean and well maintained. It's not similar to other star class hotels in other parts of Sri Lanka. But we did enjoy the stay there. The food was excellent.
