Firstly, the location in the heart of Jaffna was ideal. The rooms were large and clean. The airconditioner worked very well and the wi-fi was ok but intermittent. The staff were very friendly and tried very hard to help. I was also happy with the breakfast choices. However, if they want to keep improving, they will need to spend some... More

We decides to stay in this hotel because of the location and were not disappointed. It is in walking distance from the bus stop and the local market. The train station is a short tuk-tuk ride away. The hotel provides all the basic needed. Unfortunately, the bathroom was a bit smelly, the curtains more hole than fabric and the fridge... More

The restaurant at this hotel serves authentic Jaffna style dishes which are quiet popular among the visitors / guests. The restaurant needs to focus on getting rid of the flies which are in abundance. The food is yummy but it takes a while for the kitchen to prepare it. The restaurant should undergo a face lift and the hand washing... More
