Family of four with two kids stayed here for 3 days. It was one of the best experiences. The staff were very friendly and met all our needs. They even pack a breakfast since we need to leave early to attend a church service. Although it is 45 min from Jaffna town but beautifully surrounded by farm land and so... More

Very friendly staff, manager helpful, rooms clean and comfortable , food could be better but if you want to stay in Jaffna and see the North of Sri Lanka this is the best option, to has UK channels and wifi fine, I am sure will get better over time.

Stayed here for 1 night as it had good rating on Trip advisor but it is really overrated and overpriced. The rooms are clean but the lobby area is pretty shabby and it's not well managed. No hot water until we complained and the only place you can get wi-fi is the lobby. We skipped breakfast after seeing the food... More

The rooms are new and clean and everything works. There's a great pool, long enough to swim proper lengths, with poolside bar and charming waiter. The pool is overlooked from the road over a low wall and through a gateway so could do with some screening trees or beautiful native bushes. The food was great. The kitchen can get overwhelmed...

The northern city of Jaffna is just emerging as a destination, and pleasantly, retains an understated feel of an un- touristy, very interesting destination. Choices of accomodation are fairly limited, but PJ Hotel was a good choice out of the main town. This hotel is new, extremely clean, and the staff overwhelmingly considerate. The food was average,but the chef very... More

The rooms are maybe a little bit basic, but this is vastly compensated the very nice swimming pool, super food and the amazing staff. The manager as well as the rest of the staff really made u feel like a king and queen :-) We also very much appreciated the local guide that was recommended by the hotel When you... More

Had two days stay at this hotel. Which is 17kms away from Jaffna town closer to Point pedro. If you are traveling from Colombo better to stay first night here and explore Point pedro, Kankasanthurai, and then enter Jaffna city. This is a small luxury hotel in a calm and quite environment. Rooms are clean but too small. If you... More

This hotel was rated no 1 in Jaffna by Trip Advisor, so thats why we booked. I understdnd there is not much choice here so I guess we had the best. The hotel is nice and clean and the staff are amazingly attentive. Nothing was too much trouble for them and they certainly looked after us. The room was average... More
