I stayed at Morgan's during the Nallur Thiruvala (Chariot Festival) during August. It is a good time to stay at Morgans because you are on the Temple Road and therefore get to see the Thooku Kavadis (men who are hung off hooks as a dedication to God) in very close proximity. All rooms have Air Conditioning and you get a...

We did not stay but dropped in for a beer to check it out. Have to agree with the other negative reports about the woman who runs it. She charged us 650 for 2 small cans of beer and of course had no change so the real cost was 700. This is by far the most expensive beer we have...

Nice rooms in an old building with pleasant garden courtyard. Housekeeper brusque and on a mission to extract money from you as possible. She organised a taxi for us and pocketed over half of what we paid.

The guesthouse is nice; the location is great, the rooms are decent and the garden is very relaxed. Maybe a little overprices, but hey that's Sri Lanka! The owners are pretty strange and not very friendly. We wanted to rent scooters through them, they arranged 2 - but from one of them the brakes were not okay. But they acted...

Stayed here in March 2014. Maria was very welcoming. The rooms were clean, food was tasty and the beer was cold. We couldn't ask for more after a day of travelling or sightseeing. Very good value for money. Felt like home.

This is the best guest house in Jaffna! Maria runs a great operation here. She is super hard working and its clean and very comfortable. There is a lovey garden to relax after your long day exploring and Morgan's is in a great location near the Nallur temple and near many restaurants.

This is the worst place I've slept in Sri Lanka in 4 weeks. The house itself is lovely, so are the rooms, despite bedbugs. But the housekeepers... Maria pretends to be nice at first, but you soon realise she's only in for the money and does the least she can. More unfortunate still was the presence of her boyfriend Lawrence...
