“Seriously pushy manager”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 3, 2012

There aren't many good budget options in Polonnaruwa. Manel would be one but for the pushy and sullen manager, Bandulla. There was a hard sell on everything from safaris to transport. All the other staff were helpful and polite. Rooms were fine.
