“Very special place worth seeking out”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 23, 2013

We stayed here for five nights and found it very comfortable, centrally located (after initial searching), and very well set up. There are only eight rooms. The ones upstairs are best with private balconies. Very quiet residential neighbourhood with interesting streets to wander. Family looking after you are very helpful about plans and they have access to vehicles to rent for longer travels.
Food is good, especially once you persuade them you really want spicy Sri Lankan. Usual fare is too tailored to western tastes for our taste, but it got much better the last few days.
A top quality guest house and very good value given the high standard of the rooms.

Room Tip: Upstairs rooms are more private with a good balcony.

We spent four nights in this cute guesthouse in January, 2013. The room was clean and all of the people we met were friendly. Dinner served were simple but tasty. We visited local restaurants in quite a few cities such as Sigiriya, Polonnaruwa, Habarana but dishes served in Little Paradise were the best.

Room Tip: All of the rooms face the garden.

It was so good that I came back, one of the most memorable guest house's of my seven week cycle tour of the island
Had a slight problem with the key,
the previous guests took it with them!#*.( Please don't do this)
But this just goes to show what a nice neighbourhood it is, i had an unlocked door and I didn't get murdered in my sleep or robbed once.
I also agree with what just about everyone else here has said about the accommodation, food, staff etc and only wish that all the other guest house owners could come here and see how it Should be done.

I travelled around Sri Lanka with two friends earlier this month. Little Paradise Tourist Holiday Home was our first stop and it really started our trip off on a wonderful note. It is a small family run place that is not only comfortable but warm and inviting. The owner's sons and daughter are incredibly sweet and happy to help with any query, request you could possibly have.

The home cooked food served in the guest house was far better than any of the restaurants we went to in Anuradhapura, and you can easily get a chilled bottle of Lion beer to accompany your garden side dinner

The room we stayed in was spacious, comfortable and beautiful - wooden floors, 4 poster bed. The bathroom was incredibly quaint with saloon doors and a rustic vibe. The only down side was that there wasn't much sense of privacy in the bathroom because of the tiny doors! You definitely have to be comfortable with your travel buddies for this. However I don't know if all the bathrooms are like that.

Other than that it was an absolutely delightful stay and I highly recommend it to everyone! Families, friends, couples - they can accomodate all kinds

Also, Anuradhapura is a small town so it is not far from any of the big attractions

Located very close to town, Little Paradise really lived up to the reputation afforded it by other travellers. The rooms are clean and wide and the staff are extremely friendly and helpful. Don't let the dirt track to the place fool you, it has every convenience. And if you're like me, the strong wi-fi connection is a godsend. I will definitely be back if I'm up this way again.

The little Paradise Holiday House is a pefect place to stay for those looking for peace, tranquility and warm home hospitality in a very convenient location in Anurahapura. The building feels more like a home than a hotel, set in a quiet close of houses overlooking a central green area. Having its own shady small garden there is ample opportunity to watch local bird life and enjoy a variety of trees and flowers. We were made extremely welcome by the lady proprietress Aruni and her charming son Dinuka who took good care of us throughout our stay. The bedrooms are clean, wi-fi connection good, and home cooking excellent. Start the day with a perfectly cooked egg hopper and end it with very good authentic rice and curry. We shall definitely stay here again on our next trip to this town.
