Great hotel. It was sparkling clean, the room is spacious and very comfortable. The balcony looks over the garden and having a tea on it is a relaxing experience. It has a feel of a high-end hotel with high-quality furniture, towels, etc. Staff were very nice, helpful and welcoming. WiFi was way better than most places in Sri Lanka - fast and reliable. Location is also very good - close to the tourist attractions, restaurants and shops. Overall 10/10, we enjoyed our stay and will be back next time visiting Polonnaruwa.

This place is conveniently located to the city and the ruins. The hotel is new and rooms are spacious and it is equipped with all modern facilities. There is a large garden which you can enjoy ( however was not so clean during our stay due to some construction work). The food can be improved but okay for the price you pay. However, if they could serve the food little bit warmer that would be great.
