Good Central accommodation

Am travelling in February next year & intending spending about three/four days in the area. Last year we climbed Lions Rock and visited the temple at Dambulla. This time we want to visit Anuradhapura and Polonnaruwa and one of the National Parks, so we are looking for suggestions on where to stay that is relatively central to those places. Not looking for somewhere on a budget but likewise not looking at blowing the budget, would like somewhere with a pool and rooms with a/c given the weather at that time if the year. Somewhere with half board and working hot water.

The Elephant Corridor is not as good as it used to be. It was one of the best (and first) boutique hotels back in the day.

The Cinnamon Lodge and Chaya Village are good recommendations. They regularly have online deals on third party sites.

@Jennifer: reported as spam, both the blogspot site and the Facebook group do not at all give the impression of being from an independent tourist; full of overblown commercial language.

Agree about Elephant Corridor, visited it for a meal and did not see any justification for the high price level. Vil Uyana, same area, dwarfs it....

All the best,

We just loved Kassapa Lions Rock. Quiet, spacious, rooms and vast and beautiful property. Pool and dining areas are well kept and very welcome.
