Our stay in the Greengrass Hotel in Jaffna was great. We had no trouble booking over the phone and email. They met us at the train with their golf cart to transport us up the laneway to the hotel which is right beside the station. The staff were very friendly and well trained and the service was excellent. The pool is well maintained and has shady lounges to laze on. The restaurant is famous with Sri Lankas for the quality of its food. As Westerners we were also impressed with their Continental breakfast on the buffet with homemade breads and pastries. It was possible to book tours from the hotel. We did a 3 hour tour of the town in a hybrid car with a driver who had worked as a driver in Saudi for 10 years. We enjoyed the visit to the Fort which is an ongoing archaeological site with well-maintained grounds with interpretive signs. Rooms were clean with good A/C, wifi and comfy beds and good hot shower. Great value

We stayed here just for one night and served the purpose. Rooms were very basic with old bathrooms. The pool did not look hygienic enough as locals jumped to the pool without wearing swim suits. The restaurant was very crowded but the food was tasty and reasonable in price. Tried the famous Jaffna crab curry and it was awesome. Service staff was friendly but could not speak English.

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 restaurants (old & new wing) was very delicious...we miss it so!! Overall, a good enough place to stay...housing us as we got back to our Jaffna roots...

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 is shunted to the Green Grass Hotel which is not your first choice! So make sure when you book. Maintenance and facilities are overlooked, since the hotel can be used only for a short stay. The two hotels are separated by the outdoor dining area shared by both hotels. Outdoor pool is an attraction. The restaurant is open to both hotels. The breakfast is a buffet displaying a variety of local traditional Jaffna cuisine and some Indian cuisine. Some types of Western food is available at the Valampuri not tried. Opted for the Sri Lankan food - ‘vade’, a snack (looks like a fried doughnut0 is delicious). The buffet is almost identical every morning. Appetising. Dinner is a-la-carta - Sri Lankan/Indian/Chinese. Crab curry is good. Jaffna railway station is next door to the hotels. The hotels provide a free transport in an electric buggy (longer and similar to those at airports!) to and fro for those who have booked in at these two hotels. One can travel from Colombo to Jaffna on Yal Devi intercity express train 4021 which is a first class air conditioned modern train arriving at 12 noon, just in time to check in at the hotel. The train can be booked 45 days in advance.
