It was generally a good stay as we got a room at the new wing. There were a couple of very friendly staff & our driver on the trip, Subha, was very accommodating. However, we were disappointed about the arrangement of meals for full-board and the lack of knowledge of the restaurant staff regarding this. Otherwise, the food in both...

Green Grass Hotel and The Valampuri are both under the management of one owner who is seen around. He accepts all bookings and keeps an eye at checking out paying time. Accepting a booking is not a confirmation! When paying an advance to secure the booking one finds out that Valampuri is over booked with group bookings and so one...

Have previously stayed at the Greengrass hotel, several years ago, a very good experience. The restaurant and food very good then and now. The manager, and restaurant staff efficient, fast and very helpful. With the new wing, of course costs have risen for rooms. Unfortunately, the good service is not continued by the owner himself! We were a group, happy...

Having just read a few of the most recent reviews, it seems staying in the new wing offers a far more comfortable experience, so try and make sure you do get a room in the new wing. The check-in process was long and drawn out and we were greeted with a mixture of nonchalance, annoyance and confusion when we arrived,...

The restaurant at the Green Grass Hotel is famous for its Jaffna crab curry. I had the plain Prawn curry but my friends had the crab which did not disappoint. Simple surroundings and great food. The service was also good so a Special thanks Jeyakumar

Located right next to the Jaffna railway station. We had lunch there as we wanted to try authentic jaffna style curry for mutton, crab, prawns and cuttle fish. Though i expected lagoon crabs, we were served seas crabs. Service can be a bit better. I recommend anyone to dine at Valampuri, their sister hotel which is newly built. Apparently you...

We stayed at the Valampuri (new wing) and it was really nice. The food was simply awesome, value for money and very friendly staffs. Mr Sudha is really good as he went out of his way to take good care of our group members. Just one caution, be very very careful of the Bathroom Tiles " VERY VERY SLIPPERY".

Visited for dinner during a long weekend and the sparse staff could not handle the number of hotel guests and the diners. The food is not great by any standard and needs to be addressed ASAP. The waiter who served us tried his best to accommodate the orders we placed but it took a long time to be served. Some...
