Lievi's Tourist Accomodation
Ranked #6 of 166 Anuradhapura B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed December 17, 2013

The Lievi's is a real good choice if you want to travel on a small budget: ~2000rp for a double room without a/c (which is not necessary in december).
Ranjar, the owner, is really helpful, he is a good cook and his crew is very polite.
The location is quite noisy at night (trains) and the rooms could need some repainting.
Nevertheless: we definitely would come back.

Nice clean rooms, real hot shower, low prices, helpful owner!
We stayed two nights and the room was the best value for money we got during our 1 month in Sri Lanka. Also food was great, Rajan, the owner himself, is the chef. All staff is very steady and nice.

The Lievi`s Guesthouse is a nice option for budget travellers.The owner Ranjan is very nice and friendly,also the service staff,consist of young boys.The room is very basic,but clean and comes with moscito net and fan,a/c is also available,the bathroom is clean,too and had a really good water-pressure for showering.The drawbacks were the location,the guesthouse is very close to the railway tracks and next to the local sewer and with the right wind direction you smell you can smell the sewer.You could hear the passing trains from early morning to late night.Another drawback were the beds,just queensize and i have to lie diagonally.They put 2 matresses one on top of the other and so it`s much to soft for a good sleep,but 1 matress alone will be to hard for a good sleep.

Thank you for the review Travelling M,

We are working on improving the aspects of our Tourist Accommodation that did not meet your standards. Unfortunately the train schedule is within our power to change. For other review readers, I would like to say the trains usually come very seldomly and Travelling M was unfortunately here on a day when there were an unusual amount of trains passing.

Clean, comfortable rooms with hot water, decent ceiling fan and for a very reasonable price of 1800 rs. The garden is pretty so it is a nice setting for sitting outside your room and talking to other guests.
The owner is friendly and very easy going and will pick you up from the bus stop for free. His brother can arrange a 'special' tour of the sites avoiding the entrance fee. The owner's sons don't speak great English so we had some communication problems but they did try.
Rice and curry dinner was nice but breakfast could be improved.

we were lucky to get here. it was recommended by the tuktuk driver who picked us up at the bus station. and it couldn't have been better. we paid rs1500 for a fan room which was spotless and clean. ranjan is a great host and an incredible chef. try his rice & curry for rs400. one of the best we've ever had. and to save some money on the sightseeing, ask for the "special tour" with his brother. he will take you on an incredible ride with his tuktuk. you can get around all the sites within 4-5 hours easily.

We had a great stay at Lievis, lovely rooms, nice garden and a great location.

Food was great but make sure you discuss price first (obviously)...we didn't and it was probably a bit more expensive than it deserved but still good.

The rooms are all quite new and well maintained.
