We stayed in a room where they were still building around us. They stopped at night and we weren't there much during the day so it didn't bother us. The lodge is trying really hard to please western tourists and i think they will get there once the lodge is finished construction. The Sri Lankan breakfast was a highlight. Showers clean and water provided in room. Lodge close walking distance to shops. Good place to stay for a few nights. Internet very slow

Stayed: February 2014, traveled with friends

Rooms: Decent size deluxe rooms with required amenities
Service: Friendly and attentive staff, Thanks to owner Manju Weerasinghe for taking care of our needs
Food: Catered Sri Lanakn meals to suit our taste buds - kitchen staff were very flexible and displayed good customer service
Location: Very close to the city center and main cultural attractions

Recommendations: No EPTPOS facilities - We had to pay by cash
Construction was going on during daytime - however it did not disturb us as we were away during day time


We would love to return next time. Hope by that time, they would have completed the third floor - where, they say, will have views of Nuwara Wewa and a new swimming pool

Room Tip: Ask for a Deluxe room (new) Have cash for payment ( if full payment is not made in adavance)

We really enjoyed the recent two nite stay with our families. The staff members were very friendly and flexible. We stayed in deluxe rooms upstairs which are reasonably equipped with necessary facilities inlcluding hot water.

We thoroughly enjoyed Sri Lankan style meals throughout our stay where the kitchen staff sought our input in selecting dishes - their flexibility is highly admirable.

TVs in certain rooms did not have good reception, the owner said it was due to current redevelopment as they are building more rooms in the third level.
Hope we could occupy these new rooms when we return to Ceylan Lodge next time.

Room Tip: Ask for a new Deluxe room - upstairs

We stayed at Ceylan lodge for one night as part of our tour of the cultural triangle. It was close to the sites of Anuradhapura. Room was clean (basic but more than adequate) and offered great value for money. Service was good. We ate dinner and breakfast in the restaurant - which was very tasty! Would definitely recommend as a quick, budget stopping point.

Room Tip: Currently some renovations are taking place so request a room away from any of the construction work
