We arrived late (after a horrible experience in another hotel from which we escaped that night), whithout a reservation, tired and in desperate need of a nice, clean, european type of hotel - and we found all of that in Hotel Mahanuge - together with a unique Sri Lankan hospitality. They even arranged accomodation for our driver and a charger for my mobile phone which was a nice touch.
The room was very clean and comfortable, with nice terrace to drink a cup of cofffee and relax (coffee/tea making facilities are in the room). Bathroom was also very modern and quite big. Breakfast was good, typical for Sri Lanka (fruit, omellete, bread, butter, jam). There were no bugs, mosquitos or geckos in and around the room - something I do value a lot in Sri Lankan hotels.Overall impression is that it is a well maintained hotel with staff that couldn't do enough for you.
Location of the hotel is good, right on the main street and close to Pollonaruwa ancient site, but the rooms are in the garden so there was no noise in the night.
We only stayed one night, but would return again.
