Un grand gaillard (qui n'est pas commun au Sri Lanka) qui tient bien ses chambres situées près d'une voie de chemin de fer, certaines sont à éviter. Il n'y a pas de repas le soir mais les petits déjeuner sont différents tous les matins et très bons. Cette guest-house marche avec les guides (commission servie) ce qui augment le prix des chambres. Négocier directement. Location de vélo et scooter fort intéressant pour se balader. ALIN ET CLAIRE

Iam late writing this review I stay at this guest house back in October.I was stuck for accomadation, I had made a phone call to one hotel who recommended D,villa. I gave them a call and the owner to my surprise came to pick me up on his motorbike from Hospital Road as he was in the area. I was treated with kindness, was given great information about the area. Had dinner and breckfast there all traditional food. And the rooms were exspetionaly clean. I would highly recommend D,Villa in all aspects and hope that many others will stay in this very clean comfortable place. So nice to have traditional food a great owner. Thank you.

We stayed in D'Villa for 4 nights as we were seeking A/C after a few weeks travelling in the heat of Sri Lanka without one. This place is super affordable for what you get. We loved the TV (a real treat after living in the Country for 4 months without one!) - there are a range of English speaking channels. Also, as we need to do one days work per week at the moment, we rely on good WIFI.. this place has fantastic and fast internet, which was fantastic for us!! Dilan, the owner/host is super friendly and very obliging. He was so easy going with all our requests and helped us as much as he could. Dilan rented us his scooter for 2 days to explore the Jaffna peninsula, which was awesome (albeit hot!). The breakfast was delicious - yummy Sri Lankan breakfasts like string hoppers, pol rotti, dahl, coconut sambol, and fruit too - all for a really reasonable price! The only tiny, tiny downside is that it isn't walking distance from the city centre, so there aren't really any restaurants around. However, it's only a short bus or tuk tuk ride into town (about 3km or so).

We stayed at the D' Villa Guest House for several weeks during the past two months and can only say that it is probably the best Guest House we could find in the Jaffna town area. . Dillhan the owner is very helpful and can arrange for most of your needs from food to transport. Kettle and tea supplied in the central dining area. Only a short tuk tuk ride from the station and central bus stand. Will definitely go back there again on our next trip.

We stayed three nights, in a simple twin room, very clean, with air conditioning. Dilhan our host was fantastic, full of ideas and so helpful with lots of different recommendations. The room is one of a few that are part of the upstairs of the property. There's a large dining room with a kettle and tea and coffee, which is a great touch. Dilhan was kind enough to offer us a home cooked dinner the last night, which we were very grateful for and very touched. We felt that his home was our home and really enjoyed our stay. Would return many times!

This place has good rooms for a good price and is clean and comfortable. It is a little out of the way but it depends what you are there for. There are food options close-by still and tuk-tuks are everywhere (and the owner, Dillan can organise one for you, with a driver who lives next door and you can trust - Dillan can also arrange for him to give you a tour of the peninsula for reasonable prices). They can also do breakfast and dinner, which are highly recommended, I enjoyed hoppers for breakfast and Jaffna food for dinner (far more than I did elsewhere in Jaffna). I stayed for four nights.

We booked into D Villa for three nights having found it on the web and Trip Advisor. The accommodation is on the upper floor of Dilans house, there are 4 or 5 rooms and a common sitting area. The rooms are clean and functional with good working a/c and a roof fan and well large enough for two adults in large twin beds (actually two doubles). The bathroom was a wet-room with a shower, loo and wash-hand basin on two levels keeping the loo out of the way of the shower. We did a B&B rate and the breakfasts were good home cooked fare. The fridge was stocked with beer and water and you helped yourself on an honesty basis. This is a good, clean, functional villa offering exceptional value for money. I can not write this without mentioning Dilan (the owner) who speaks perfect English and is very kind and helpful. He sorted us out a neighbour who drives a Tuk-Tuk who collected us after breakfast and finished after we had gone out for dinner. He suggested things to see that were well off the normal tourist-track and briefed the driver on the route and sequence and suggested excellent places for lunch and dinner. Dilan is who makes the place and he is very kind, helpful and accommodating. My view: this is a simple, clean and well-run facility with good food and an exceptional host / owner offering fantastic value for money.
