This hotel had everything, good wifi, good rooms with air con, not far from town and delicious food!
Would recommend that anyone going to Anuradhapura stayed here. There isn't much to do in the town so tots nice that they have a garden that you can sit in. The staff were all very very helpful and nothing was an issue. They serve a mix of slightly more western food and some delicious curry. We also hired bikes from the he hotel cheaply to visit the sacred city, the receptionist gave us a helpful map and directions of where to go.
Also we arranged a trip to Sigirya thought the hotel. Everything ran so smoothly.
Can't recommend it highly enough.

This was my first accommodation in Sri Lanka, and now I can say that it was one of the best. At first I thought that LKR3000 for an a/c room was too much (off season), but this is very much in line with Sri Lankan prices and elsewhere, you get less for the same. The room was clean and comfortable, had the a/c and the TV, the food was tasty and the staff was helpful and professional. Great place.

The service of the hotel was amazing, as were the facilities. We had a triple room with AC for 4450Rs per night which was slightly overpriced for us as budget tourists, but would be a great deal for a family. The room contained two double beds and a huge bathroom.

The food was good, not the best we've had but still tasty. It was slightly overpriced at 900-1000Rs per meal but the service made up for this. Everyone was super friendly.

In fairness to the Milano, I had the hotel advertised to me as 'an absolute bargain' - which it isn't! 3,500 rupees a night for non air con room.

It was nice - hence the 4* - had a tv and a fridge in the room too. Food and reasonably priced (chicken curry 935 RS total (including service charge - 850 + 10%).

Staff pleasant and friendly. Shower had hot and cold water. Overall v pleasant stay.

The hotel is overpriced, the food isn't good. On our arrival they tried to scam us in to going on a fake daytrip, for a lot of money and not even going to the major site. After we got out of the tuk tuk, we got the deal we wanted, even though the guide was absolutely rubbish... Don'tcome here! There are far better guesthouses and hotels, with honest people.

Stayed here three days to explore Anuradhapura. The location is somewhere on the edge of Anuradhapura but everything is on less 15 minutes with tuk-tuk from the hotel. The surroundings are very quiet and green and the terrace to have diner or a drink is very nice, especially at night with candlelight! The rooms are basic with a/c and a good bed. The staff at the restaurant is great! The curries are good, rest of the food is not that good. Prices are reasonable.

This hotel was our second stop on our 3 week trip of Sri Lanka. Our first night was in a family room on the top floor. Very comfortable and clean, we slept well in that room with the air con since it was so hot in Anuradhapura . On our second night we had to move to the downstairs family room for the same price. This room had a bathroom that was much older than the previous room and was a little dark. If we opened out curtains we could occassionally see staff outside the room. It was also off the corridor from the kitchen, but surprisingly it wasn't too noisy. We hadn't booked so didn't mind moving.

I most enjoyed the beautiful gardens at this hotel and the service by staff when ordering food and drinks from their excellent restaurant.

I highly recommend this hotel, especially if you can see the rooms first (as with most places in SL).

Room Tip: Upstairs rooms look newer.
