We stayed here for four nights and the service we received here was excellent. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. The manager is a warm and friendly person who was very happy to converse with us but was not obtrusive. Our room was spacious, very clean and simply but attractively furnished. The air conditioning worked well and the ceiling fan...

First thing I would recommend is to consider booking in advance in Internet as the prices you may be said while you arrive without doing this may be much higher. We used our internet connection to book via Internet right there. Apart of this very nice place to stay in. Clean (you may only find frogs in your bathroom but...

I stayed at the hotel for 2 nights and their service was excellent. The hotel was full but you still feel like you're their only guest. I think the hotel is very lucky to have a manager such as Kamal. I do have to warn though that food prices are double than what I've encountered in other hotels, and thrice...

Between town and railway station Habarana, left side of the main road you will find the perfect place for a stopover or for any kind of holidays. You won't hear the road, you can relax on the Veranda next to your well-maintained room or in the bar-area. Be advised to request meals or snacks (via e-mail or phone) BEFORE you...

First of all this is a budget type hotel. Food is expensive. 1km from Habarana junction. Friendly staff. Must say the head chef is capable to make you feel awesome with his food: delicious. Close to Sigiriya & Minneriya. It was windy at night & I could breathe some fresh air after sometime.

I stayed at Le Grand Meaulnes for two nights in May. On arriving, the place looks beautiful with a nice garden in the front full of fruit trees and a ground level deck in front of all the rooms. We were met by the owner and one of his staff which were very friendly and helpful. The hotel is located...

This hotel is quite lovely. The rooms are large, comfortable and spacious. The beds are good quality and comfortable. The bathroom is decent, although we never had hot water (I've noticed the same comment in other reviews, seems it's a common problem). There is a nice veranda outside bedroom to sit. The property is very nice and has a lot...

Le Grand Meaulnes I stayed at Le Grand Meaulnes for one night in mid-April. The location is 1km north of the Habarana crossroad and 1.5km south of the railway station and Eco Park. There is a bus stop within 100m. There is a driveway from the gates at the main road and the first impression is very good. All rooms...

After climbing Sigiriya and visiting the cave temples in Dambulla and before heading down to Polonnaruwa, this was the perfect stop for a good night's rest. The owners and the staff are joyful and chatty (in a good way), the breakfast is fresh and plentiful (we especially enjoyed the lime juice). The rooms are quite bare but very elegant and...
