Reviewed January 30, 2014

We stayed four nights at this hotel. The staff, the manager and the owner mr. Dananjaya were very nice. The rooms are big neat and clean. The staff were very helpful. I recommend everyone this hotel. I wish I could stay longer. Free pickup and drop off service in Anuradhapura. Free laundry service. Arrange tour for reasonable price. I had to wait a little for the dinner because everything were prepared fresh.I would stay here again. Simone from Holland

Room Tip: stop looking further. Good value for money

The hotel is situated quite far from the main attractions, so transport is needed. The hotel is clean, very helpful service and they have great food. The bathroom could have been a little bit cleaner and the room we had didn't have any windows. On the other hand it also didn't have mosquitos ;) in the room the had power socket changers available, an anti-mosquito air refresher, airco and tv.

I had one of the best chicken curries there which I ever had for a reasonable price.

It's a very nice place to stay.

We stayed at this hotel for three nights. The manager was very friendly and helpful. The food was great and we took all our meals at the hotel. Some of the rooms are great. But there was some that was not that good, so a good idea is to look at some rooms before you decide. If I return I would stay here again.

They are really trying hard here to keep the guests happy. The manager khaan was a really nice guy who went out of his way to help. The rooms are so big, you could sleep 6 people in them! Free laundry, and pick up are nice perks. However, on our first night we stayed in room 4 which was at the front of the building behind the kitchen and it was soo loud until about midnight and then early in the morning (the rotti/Kotthu chopper is relentless) They gladly changed our room the following morning fully aware of the noise problem. Our second room was also Noisey as it was next to where the diners ate - but bearable with ear plugs. The other problem was the speed of service. It took us 90 minutes to be served a poor breakfast one morning - eating into our day, and 3 hours after requesting our laundry back on our final day. I think although khaan is doing a great job he is over worked and things slip.

Was there while visiting the site in Anuradhapura, when you first get there you may think it looks a bit dim and there's still construction going on. but the rooms are cool and they still cool, there are a lack of windows but that means less bugs get in and who wants to stay in their all day anyway. the food is really good and the pricing is very competitive, and because they have their our kitchen the food is freshly made unlike many of the places in town where its been sitting there under the lights for a long time (and the portion sizes are huge). Highly recommend this place as the quality of service along is worth it.

Room Tip: Just dont get the rooms in the foyer, as it can be a bit noisy. Try the Deviled Chicken curry and...

My husband and I stayed at this hotel for two nights. We enjoyed the Delicious food served at this hotel and the room was extremely comfortable and with all amenities, the staff was extremely friendly, obliging and helpful. Khan is the Manager of the hotel and he is ever ready to help out with whatever request you may have. The hotel is also in close proximity to the town and close enough for sightseeing to any town in close proximity to Anuradhapura. We will definitely return to this hotel for our next vacation and we highly recommend Whitehouse Hotel to anyone.

This hotel is still under construction but functional with 10 rooms.
Good value for money. The staff members, particularly the Manager, Mr. Khann, were very nice and extremely helpful. One thing they need to do is to provide complementary water in the room.
The photos in the sites are a bit "exaggerated". There are little little problems such as leaking under the shower door etc but these are not major issues.
The food is very good for the price you pay., extremely tasty.
Excellent location to visit all the sites in Anuradhapura.

Room Tip: Avoid Room No. 10
