Hotel is absolutely overpriced. The bathroom facilities are rusty and it does not really look nice. The room itself is okay but it smelt moldy and no mosquito nets in the windows. It is okay for overnight but definitely not recommendable for longer stay. It would be so easy to make it more comfortable and without much investing money. Also... More

We enjoyed our two day stay in this quiet restaurant, just outside the new center of Anuradhapura. We had a room on the ground floor with a small porch. We were surprised to find the bathroom outside, in a separate part in the back of the room. The shower has no curtain so the bathroom turned into a big pool... More
