Jaffna Greengrass Hotel
Ranked #27 of 49 Jaffna B&B and Inns
Reviewed September 4, 2012

The rooms are basic and have small maintenance issues but are clean with AC and value for money considering people living on the street use a communal pump for water. The hotel manager was extremely friendly and helpful and the pool was a sparkling relief from the heat and dust of Jaffna. The food in the restaurant is magnificent, truly brilliant however a lot of the items on the menu are not available and you have to wait about an hour for your meal - still it is worth the wait.

Our reservation was cancelled without mention and our room given to another customer despite our confirmation long in advance. When we arrived the staff took us to their branch location which was of much lesser standard (no pool, poor service) and charged us about the same rate as if we'd stayed at their main location. We decided to try the restaurant at Green grass despite this mishap. The staff there seemed disorganized, difficult to communicate with and the service very slow (about 50 minute wait for a plate of rice, two curries and a salad).

Sadly, these guys are pretty hapless. They ignored our reservation -- which we'd booked two weeks in advance and reconfirmed that day -- giving their last room away. In hopes of making it better, they sent us to their sister hotel - rather loud, dirty, no pool, no wifi etc. And still charged us over 3000r. Green grasses rooms themselves are spacious but downstairs are very smelly. The ambiance is like a parking lot, restaurant is incredibly slow and it's far from the center. We did better at Clock Tower Hotel!

We ate here rather than staying, but very good, especially considering the lack of anywhere better in Jaffna!
