We stayed here one night on a tour. Excellent service, fine room, pool, garden. Dinner in the restaurant was the best of our trip so far, grilled prawns and seer fish. Traditional lunch and breakfast were also very good.

The man who runs this hotel is so full of kindness and this permeates the experience in his hotel. The staff are so kind and caring. Anuradhapura is a highly spiritual and yet intensely touristic place. The owner treats everyone with the same kindness, be it tourists, drivers or guides. The food is so yummy that in the evening, bus...

Really great hotel with helpful staff. The hotel is clean and modern. We had 2 people in a big room with plenty of common spaces and balconies to hang out. The restaurant's food was great. But the thing that stuck out most was the staff. I wish I would have gotten their names but a few guys were very pleasant...

This hotel actually blew me away for the price. The staff treated us like a prince and princess the whole time we stayed. The room was so comfortable and the pool and garden area are peaceful and full of native birds. The restaurant serves delicious rice and curry, so good we had it both nights we stayed. Cannot recommend this...

Aside from the beautiful ancient city sites and pagodas, this hotel was a real gem in our short visit to this area.

The hotel is very well managed and has a homely feel. The room is big with a great bathroom with hot water. The breakfast was good and the service very attentive. The swimming pool is a great bonus to refresh after a hot day visiting the ancient city. Do go to the Lake across the road to admire the sunset...
