This was my first guest house on my trip through Sri Lanka in March 2013.
The rooms are simple but good and the owner family was very polite and friendly. The meals were good and fair priced. They care a lot about their beautiful garden site. I liked the atmosphere a lot. The two men who worked there for the family were both were nice and friendly and they seemed to be happy to work there. 100% recommendable place!!
One more thing to mention in this context:
Anuradhapura is a phantastic place!! But Mihintale, as a smaller, less touristic town next to Anuradhapura is an even more phantastic place for the culture of Buddhism. It is the birthplace of Sri Lankan Buddhism and you can see so many wonderful peaceful places there. I visited it two times with a local guide from Mihintale, I met him on my first day there. His name is Amara. He was the friendliest person I met in my entire life, I am serious! And he showed and told me so many phantastic things out there. His English is very good and he has a license as tourist guide in Sri Lanka. I talked to him and he agreed that I write his number in here, which is 071 257 1472. You should definitely give him a call, when you are in Anuradhapura or Mihintale. He has got his own TuckTuck and he also offers trips around Anuradhapura. You can trust me, he is doing a great job :))
