Reviewed 14 May 2014

The hotel and rooms are colourful, even a tad garish but this does not detract from the friendly service and comfortable stay you are likely to have here. The staff were courteous and helpful. While the food wasn't spectacular, it was well worth the money charged for our stay. The hotel is not too far from the many attractions in Anuradhapura.

We stayed a couple nights at the Hotel Randiya and were really impressed by the helpfulness of the staff, the cleanliness of the hotel, and the decent restaurant. The rooms were somewhat basic, but the showers were good and the rooms were well-maintained. The staff went out of their way to assist. The only downside to the hotel is the location (it's a hike into town) and no elevators (if you have problems walking up a couple storeys, this isn't the hotel for you). Otherwise, I'd definitely recommend the Hotel Randiya to anyone who is looking to get a great value for the money.

Room Tip: Ask for one of the rooms towards the back of the hotel so you don't hear the cars driving by (th...

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 Rooms are really outdated, but clean and spacious.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.
