I stayed in the place two nights. The place was generally nice and I liked it there.. Until I got the bill. They didn't have a normal room available, so I was kept inside the main house. It was so hot (93f).. When I asked to move, the owner said that I could just use the AC. He didn't tell... More

In contrast to some other reviews we really liked this place. Not very clean and rooms are a bit mouldy, but the owner is very helpful and kind and the atmosphere is relaxed and laid back. We loved the quiet area around Theresa Inn and the beautiful green garden. Lots of pet animals they have here: birds, dogs, fishes. Wifi... More

The room was clean and reasonably priced (breakfast not included), but the owner was incredibly reluctant to offer any information, or have any sort of conversation at all. It felt like he had much more important things to be doing than helping his guests. The rest of the staff were friendly. It's quite a long way from the bus station... More

My friends and I stayed here for a weekend after being in a near by city. Once we arrived, the lady who part owned the hostel was very friendly and showed us to our rooms. The next day we asked about booking an overnight train, she went the extra mile and called up the place herself, and got the tickets... More

We didn't stay here because it was full, we did rent a motorbike and have a beer in the garden. The owner was very helpful and friendly. The location of the guest house was very convenient, quiet and relaxing, with two very friendly sausage dogs.

Easy to find but grubby & the whole place is let down by the really rude & unhelpful owner. We stayed here last week & were shoved in a room at the back that was dark, dirty & stuffy. We asked about local information but the owner was curt & would only say he would provide a driver. We mentioned... More

I stayed for two nights in Room #1, which is a single en suit room. It was 2,500 rupees for the room, including A/C (but unlike lots of other places in Sri Lanka this didn't include breakfast). The room was basic, but clean and functional. From Theresa Inn you can into the centre of Jaffna, or north to Nallur Kandaswamy... More

Hard pillows, running toilet with door that wouldn't stay shut, annoying cat and a not-so-friendly owner who speaks English well (who has a lot of knowledge/advice to share, but seems like he doesn't want to; gives super short answers to questions) make this just an average place to stay. It's a shame because it has a lot of potential.

Stayed here for 2 weeks in July 2014 with a group of students. Joseph and the staff were so helpful. Kept their heads down and worked hard but very friendly if you talked to them. We fasted a few days of Ramadan here and Joseph would get up at 4am every morning to make us breakfast, we didn't even ask.... More

We stayed 3 nights in Theresa Inn in Jaffna. You must know that there is not many options for staying in Jaffna yet, so this one is a good option! The owner is not very smily but the rooms and sanitaries are clean, you can rent a bike or bicycle for the day and if you like to have your... More
