This modest place surprised us with how good it was. The 500 rupee evening meal was exceptional and the staff were friendly throughout. Bike hire was free on day one and a modest 300 rupee on day two - a great way to see the nearby ancient city. A great choice for families or couples on a budget.

Leesha guesthouse was lovely! Great staff gave us lots of advice on visiting the ruins, we rented bikes (300rs each) to go and see them. The bedrooms are big and spacious with good mosquito nets, fans as standards and AC if you pay extra. Big bathroom with hot water. Everything very clean. Amazing food, dinner and breakfast were delicious! Only... More

Excellent and enjoyable stay. Upari is a wonderful host and really takes care of you. Rooms are simple, but clean. They have hot water and AC. The atmosphere is family oriented and welcoming. Definitely reccomended. The in house meals are delicious and breakfast of fresh fruit starts your day off in the right way.

Very nice homestay, with super nice host that picked me up at the bus station, and brought me back there the next day in scooter! Spatious rooms, with outdoors space, for only 1800 rps the dinner was delicious as well. The host can help you with any information you need!

We are riding our bikes through Sri Lanka and as we approached Polonnaruwa we were inundated with offers of accommodation. We checked out a couple and then tried the Leesha Tourist Home. So glad we did. It immediately felt good with a warm welcome from Sunil who greeted us and showed us the rooms. They were spacious and clean with... More

We were picked up by Mr. Upali just at the moment we were checking the lonely planet for advice on where to stay near polowarunna. He arranged a tuktuk for us and we took one of the downstairs rooms with a/c because it was really hot at the time. It's been great to stay there, the rooms are clean, the... More

Though the rooms themselves are great, the best part of this place is Upali, the owner. His years in the hospitality/hotel sector before opening this gem have clearly paid off. He went out of his way to help us, from taking me to a working ATM in the next town to finding a dentist for a small emergency. The family... More

I arrived in Polonnaruwa by public bus from Kandy and called ahead to make my booking. As I stepped off the bus in town I was greeted by the smiling hotel owner who organised a tuk tuk for me and drove me down to the guest house. The service continued at a very high level for the whole experience, the... More

This is a fairly weird guest house. What most reviews don't mention is that it is only half built... The upstairs is a total building site. It was also raining when I arrived and the whole place flooded. Options are few and far between so it's perfectly decent for a single night but not somewhere to relax. The owner is... More

r road trip. We had one night here scootering round the country. Shown great hospitality, fair deal, helpful advice and going even beyond expected responsibilities. I would recommend. Only downside is the nearby road, the traffic isn't heavy and stops at night til mid morning, at least, it did on Wednesday. Dinner and breakfast rasai (delicious) with generous portions adaptable...
