Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We stayed for 1 night, half board with dinner and breakfast. The location is serene and the staff/hospitality exceptional. Cleanliness could be better though, attentional to detail was somewhat lacking with some residual stains in the toilet. Also buffet menu is somewhat lacking in variety.

Overall decent value for money and excellent staff!

A very eye catching with a relaxed place to be with excellent staff starting from the GM-Mr. Tyrone. Wathsala & to the lowest staff throughout in every section. The variety of food selections and comfortable place to be in the heart of city of great Anuradhapura surrounded by the Nuwara Lake. I’m extremely satisfied with all the facility what they provided and I will always recommended this hotel to many since it is absolutely worth for the money what we spent. I nearly stayed 03 days this time and of cause this was my second visit with Hotel Miridiya. The SriLankan hospitality was well provided thru during the entire stay. My whole family enjoyed it thereby. Kids were thrilled. A big Thank you for the entire hotel staff for their hospitality and keep up the good work. Of cause we are hoping to visit back as soon as we get a break in our busy schedule to be enjoy again.
Thank you.

We visit anuradhapura twice a year and our choice of accomodation has been hotel miridiya since the beginning . The hotel has been excellent in keeping up the standards from the beginning . Nevertheless the hotel staff is very friendly and hospitable . The view from this hotel is very beautiful . The surrounding is calm and could spend the day relaxing ,and most importantly the food is delicious . Overall its a very good experience for a very good affordable price.

This place is absolutely disgusting! It is absolutely filthy with flies buzzing around everywhere, especially in the restaurant. I wouldn't dare eat there. They had the audacity to put up a sign apologizing for the flies, claiming it's just a seasonal issue, but that does nothing to help the guests. And don't even get me started on the staff, they are so unfriendly. The lunch was supposed to be Sri Lankan cuisine, but there wasn't a single vegetable in sight. And as for dinner, it was a buffet, but it felt like they just kept serving the same meat items over and over again. When I asked if I could have a poached egg, they rudely informed me that there would be an additional charge. The room was a disaster too, it was dirty with flies and even mosquitoes inside. This place is an absolute nightmare to stay in. They seriously need to work on making their staff more friendly if they want to attract any guests.

Stayed two nights. Located at the edge of Nuwara Wewa. Quiet and calm surrounding. The room given on the first day wasn’t in good condition. Had a bad drainage smell. Given a newly repaired room on the next day with an open-air bathroom. It was our wedding anniversary, and they decorated the room beautifully. Very thoughtful of them.
Unfortunately, buffet dinner on the day was disappointing. Hardly any food was left at 8.30 pm. Had to wait till they prepare them again!! People came from outside just for the buffet and the restaurant wasn’t informed accordingly. Unacceptable excuse from the restaurant staff !!
Nice place for a short stay in Anuradhapura. Should try to minimize incidents like above.
