“Just ok for a short stay”
Reviewed 10 March 2014

This hotel is a bit located outside the town of Anuradhapura. Staff are friendly. Rooms are really outdated, but clean and spacious. Food offered was a 5-course dinner which was ok, but nothing special and for us a bit too european. We try to eat local food as much as possible when on holiday. The hotel is currently undergoing an expansion next door, but it was not that noisy, so it did not really bother our stay.

... But the place has character. There might be things that need fixing but we found it adequate after a long day travelling and sightseeing. Our bed was comfortable with a mosquito net. The AC worked. The management and staff made up for any shortcomings in the rooms ... They were friendly and helpful. Food was excellent, too. We had some really fresh, vegetable curries for dinner. We vary the quality of our accommodation as we travel and liked our stay.

I was there just for one night, first of all I felt like I am in prison. Rooms were very dark with low voltage CFL bulbs, water pressure was so bad. Water draining in the bathroom was a mess. 10.30am checkout time was not acceptable. I wanted to have a drink with my friends and even before serving they told that we have stop our drink by 10pm, that was communicated in a very rude manner. Prices was almost par with other places in Anuradhapura city. I personally do not recommend this place, there are more guest friendly places in Anuradhapura.only positive I saw was the tasty breakfast.

I was there for one night during a short family visit to Anuradhapura . It is conveniently located near the city and provided very good value for money . It has all types of basic amnesties such as hot water , AC with a comfortable bed. However, the rooms are smaller and old . Hence if your expecting luxury this is not the place. However, the deluxe rooms are in excellent conditions and only 7 usd more ( under priced ) hence I do recommend deluxe rooms for comfort. They do have a restaurant and had a excellent breakfast. I will definitely select this place and a deluxe room in my next visit to Anuradhapura .

I've been stayed in this hotel 3-4 times. I must say that this is the best Budget hotel in Anuradhapura according to my experience. The hotel staff is very kind and helpful. Also it is very near to Sri maha Bodhiya and Ruwanwali maha saya from this hotel.

Rooms are small but nicely maintained. Food is quite good. from my own experience, the Western style breakfast is better than the Sri Lankan style breakfast here.

The staff here was very attentive, but the rooms were dark, and the mosquito nets had holes in them. We had two rooms for our family, and the triple had bedbugs, so I had quite an itchy next few days.

Room Tip: Bring bobby pins or safety pins for holey mosquito nets; upstairs triple (I forget the room number...
