The location is great if you like to see the pagodes. Just a few steps away with the bikes that are available at the hotel. It was verry warm when we visited those so the pool afterwards did it for us. It is away from town so a Tuktuk is to be used if you want to go into the...

The staff are well meaning at this old and run down hotel but their desire to welcome foreign tourists is not matched by the facilities. The cleanliness of the entire place is well below satisfactory, with dirty tiled floors that have not been washed for a long time having five dogs lying around on them. This is unacceptable in guest...

Stayed for 2 days during a pilgrimage to Anuradhapura with family. Value for money if you are not planning to spend a lot of time in the room.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Our hotel is situated just outside the sacred ancient city of Anuradhapura. Surrounded by paddy fields and trees with lots of greenery around it. You see the Jethavanaya and Ruwanvailsaya (ancient Stupa) from the top rooms. There is a river flowing close (100m away) called the Malwathuoya. We are 5 min away from the city center by taxi. We try to make you relax from stressful world you live in and make you come close to nature. Our friendly and smiling staff is available 24 hrs for you. We have a restaurant open morning to late night. We have attractive menus at affordable prices. We have en-suite toilets for all the rooms and all rooms air conditioned on your request. Most rooms are very spacious. We have a lovely pool beside our garden. Our garden is peaceful and full of wild birds. Early morning stroll in the garden is highly recommended and taste kolakeda (herbal drink). We have a conference room with capacity for 100 people. Our hotel is a popular place to wed in Anuradhapura due to surrounding scenes and good food. We are 1 hour from Wilpaththu and Minariya National Parks; we can arrange safaris on advance request. We can arrange for you to hire bicycles to see around the ancient cities and tanks. Come and experience us. ... more   less
