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.

The most striking thing about this location is the warm welcome. of course everyone says staff is friendly. This is Sri Lanka. But this family and their staff are is exceptional! Always smiling, always a nice chat, always helpful, they cook the meals (awesome food) you desire, they are kind to wildlife; feeding parrots and squirrels in the garden, they give advice and tips on where to go and … they are good fun (teaching us Singhala even).
Also there is the amazing breakfast. Toast, eggs, rotti, hoppers… too much to mention; let alone eat.
And then there is the pool! it is so relaxing to dive in after visiting the warm and dusty Polonnaruwa sites. Delicious!
In some areas the building and rooms need a little maintenance but nothing a brush of paint or a good cleaning can not help. We enjoyed immensely and thank all at Seraya for the wonderful stay!

We were a family of 4 (two adults and two children) and stayed here for 1 night in January 2020. The location was good (we hired a car for our trip so we found it easy to get to) and the hotel even had a swimming pool. The staff were lovely and very welcoming. We had dinner and breakfast there which was tasty and large portions. There were some insects and although the rooms didn't have A.C., they had mosquito nets and fans which did the job.

Overall, the hotel was extremely good value for money as we got a great deal. We would 100% recommend it.

Located 5 minutes tuk tuk out of town, Seysra is an attractive mid-range property with a friendly and engaging manager. The pool is large but with very little shade. There are a few sun loungers that needed some TLC and maintainance.
Breakfast was good. We had a half board room rate so dinner was also included.
The room was large and comfortable, with a balcony overlooking the road. Wifi was poor. Although it was up two flights of stairs, the staff carried the bags up and down.

Seyara was aboslutely amazing. We stayed there for 8 nights, me, my kids (11+16) and friends with kids at the same age. All of us loved the place. The owner arranged bike rental and showed us several routes through paddy fields and villages. We swam in the canal, played football with the locals and saw plenty of animals. By far the best place I've stayed at.

Extremely friendly and welcoming. It looked like we were going into the middle of nowhere but was a really lovely place. Staff were attentive. We stayed on a half board basis and the food was incredible! The food was all locally inspired but without too much spice. We only had one night so we could visit Polonnaruwa which was close by. Highly recommended!

Nice small hotel with great and clean swimming pool, nice garden for evening sitting and very king people and excellent food. We stayed there for 4 days and we were very satisfied. Furniture in room was nice, bed was comfortable, water in shower was hot, A/C worked well. People there are smily and willing, nothing was problem. The food there was one of the best we had in Sri Lanka.

The most delightful staff added to a great stay, they couldn’t have been more helpful and obliging. When it comes to value for money this was at the top of our list. Yes it could do with a bit of a refurb but to have air-con and a pool was great. Be sure to order dinner when you arrive.

Average. Rooms are dated and need to be refurbished. Cleanliness to be improved. Resort with a great pool and on-site restaurant . Staff are polite and friendly. Location, away from the city centre in a quiet neighbourhood . Parking is available at the property.

This was really a surprise for us. Such a great hotel for such a low price! Fantastic pool and very friendly service. Therefore we can't understand the review of 465rohanj. What you give is what you get. We loved the place, many thanks!
