“A most relaxed stay”
Reviewed January 22, 2013

Little paradise tourist guesthouse is a delightful place to stay. It is a small family run guesthouse of about 5 rooms which are simple but more than adequately appointed, and set in very pleasant garden surrounds. Good beds, excellent pillows, air con and great showers. The staff are extremely helpful and the food is delicious!

Room Tip: Doesn't matter which rooms you choose. Garden rooms were great.

Third visit to Sri Lanka, and this was our best Guest House yet, located on a quiet un-named street. Note: the street name given for this property, Godage Mawatha, is the nearest named street and is a number of streets removed. First floor room with balcony overlooking garden and beyond a Green with grazing cows and lots of egrets. Strong hot shower, quite rare. No mosquitoes in January. Additionally pretty much all of the good things said by everybody else. Pity the picture was taken in the rain.

Room Tip: First floor rooms preferred.

Little Paradise Tourist Holiday Home was our second night in Sri Lanka. We travelled with a driver organised by Little Paradise from Colombo to Anadurapura to stay two nights to visit the Ancient Cities. Little Paradise was fabulously located between the new and the old cities in a local neighbourhood which made us feel like we were having a 'real' experience. Aruni and her daughter and staff made us feel very welcome, Our rooms were great, we had the family room (double bed and a double bunk), upstairs with aircon. The food was also very good and we ate at their restaurant both nights. Aruni organised us a cheap tuk-tuk driver who showed us around the UNESCO sites. When we got back after lunch, we all joined in a local cricket game on a pitch just outside the guesthouse. It was hilarious!! Australia vs Sri Lanka. My 7 year old son has found a new passion in cricket, even after slipping in a rather large buffalo pat. Thank you to Aruni and her daughter who looked after us and made our first two nights in Sri Lanka comfortable, memorable, and enjoyable.

This was our first place in SL. The reason why I chose it was because it had excellent comments. The owners can speak good english so it was good to communicate with them via email. They also provided us with a driver which we liked. The food was very good. The people who manage the hotel are extremely tourist oriented and will help very kindly with route planning, what to visit, etc, which was really helpful to us. All this is positive. Now on to the things to improve. The towels were visibly dirty with fresh marks. We were so tired we didn't even bother to go down the stairs to ask for new ones, so we used our own and fell asleep. The food is good but it was the hottest we ate in 2 weeks. The price was above average if compared to other similar guesthouses (including the ones at the beach which usually have higher prices.) we paid 5500 slr for a room (3 people) and 2700 for a dinner for 3 people (i don't remember whether this included also breakfast). Total of 8200. (we were here 25 dec 2012) Usually we paid about 6500 slr for room+breakfast+dinner for 3 people in other similar guesthouses with good feedback. (comparing just the "bed" we spent on average 3500-4500 rupees, some of which were also nicer). Anyway i value the english language and the helo on route planning.

This place is a gem. If you want somewhere to chill out away from the main town this place is it. Free WiFi, beds and rooms are immaculate and there is hot water. The breakfast could be better though. Definitely recommended

Little Paradise, Anuradapura.
This guest house run by Suman and his wife Aruni was a lovely find, only a small number of rooms so a very a relaxing and welcoming, friendly feel to it. Our room was spotlessly clean, well appointed with both air conditioning and also a fan if you are more acclimatised than we were. There was a mosquito net provided and it was needed as the little biters were in significant numbers in the area. The en-suite bathroom was quite large and again spotlessly clean, hot water in abundance and a wonderfully powerful shower that was a dream after a hard days trekking around the ruins which were about 4 km away. We recommend you get a tuc tuc to and from the ruins as there is plenty of walking to do once you are on the site. Also it helps to remember the road name that the hotel is on as a number of the tuc tuc drivers did not know the Little Paradise. We had paid for bed and breakfast but decided to have dinners too as the food was lovely and the town is not over supplied with restaurants. Suman is very friendly and full of useful local information. On our departure Suman had arranged for a taxi for us for the next leg and when the taxi was 1/2 hr late he even offered to take us to Polannarua himself, a 5 hour round journey! We assured him that we did not want to put him out and waited for the taxi which finally arrived.
We greatly appreciated Suman and his entire families' wonderful friendliness and care during our stay in their guest house and we would thoroughly recommend it.
