There are better places to stay

My family being there with me.
The wifi only works at reception area and the pool area. If you get one of the better room at the back of the hotel you will not get any reception. The hot water dint work at all. The staff didn't know what was wrong and they struggled to get a technician to come and fix it. Use the mosquito nets at night. There are a few buzzing at night. The staff works hard to make the guests happy but the management/owners are no help to the working staff. The managers are expanding the hotel but the service and facilities don't match up to the high room rates. There are much better operated hotels closer to the main town and the old monument in Anuradhapura. This is an over rated hotel.

Overrated, over priced and disappointing!
This is the second hotel we booked through agoda during our stay in Sri Lanka and to be very frank we were terribly disappointed about the quality of hotel in Anuradhapura as against the excellent hotel and service ŵe had in Sigiriya. Firstly, the hotel is highly overpriced for the basic facilities it offers. We booked a garden view but there was no real garden! Secondly, we were the only guests at the hotel and despite that the staff were very slow to respond, be it calls to the reception or any service. There was no hot water and the force of th water was pathetic, moreover there were no efforts made from the staff to resolve this issue. Thirdly, we paid 18 USD per person for breakfast and all we got was fruits and one or two dishes. There was absolutely no choice in the menu and the staff seemed to struggle to give us options too. We had trouble with the wifi on day 2 and the manager took no action to solve this issue. Overall we found this stay to be below average and will not recommend this to anyone. The property is not bad but the management needs to pull up their socks if they want to see happy customers!

Quiet location

Nice quiet little place with nice pool

Small size, pool, location
It's nice and quiet with only 5 rooms, all with their own little patio opening on to a nice grassy/tree area. The small pool is wonderful after a long day of site seeing. The service, as many others have said, has a lot of room for improvement. There are a few men milling around reception and are not welcoming or helpful on arrival, save for one nice smiley guy in the kitchen and one nice room boy. The food was also pretty bad, and tons of mosquitos in the room (they provided a bed net but it smelled like body odour). Ordered some vermicelli noodle concoction with shrimp and vegetables, only ate a few bites as it was pretty bad. Breakfast was dry hard white toast, some fruit and butter so hard it flew across the floor when i tried to cut it. The local coffee was the only good thing. Having said that, the small size and pool were its redeeming features. I had enough of big family places, so this was a quiet welcome, I was the only one there. Close enough to town, just a few minutes by car/tuk tuk.

Very nice płace for short stay

quiet, clean, relaxing
The first impresion is not very good but after while I started to like the hotel. Nice small pool - clean. Closed and insulated area with well kept garden. I recommend hotel for short stay. I also used hotel to provide long transfer from Wilpattu on western shore to Pasikuda on eastern shore. Provided car was excellent and driver was very careful and driving safely.

Pleasant Stay

friendliness of the staff and service.
It was a nice quite stay at Alakamanda. We were there for 2 nights and staff is very friendly and always willing to help. However the breakfast menu is bit limited does not have that much varieties to choose from. Stayed at superior double room and room was nice and well presented.

Fijn hotel

Jill T. Couples United Kingdom, January 31, 2015

spacious rooms; the friendliness of the junior staff; comfortable bed
We started badly with the reception implying that we couldn't check in without a printed booking form. He had our name listed and we could have shown him our booking on our laptop. It was his unwelcoming manner that we disliked. We believe that 500ml of water is inadequate provision when the hotel water is undrinkable.poor WiFi and no recharging points in room.

A Peace of Paradise.

The location was out of the noise snd business of town. The surroundings were tranquil and serene. The limited number of guest accommodation was extremely appealing.
The setting and layout design of the hotel was excellent. The shade of the trees around the immaculate grounds and pool provided a cool and quiet escape from the heat and sun after a day exploring the sights of the UNESCO ruins. Staff were extremely friendly and professional. Meals were prepared with great care and tasted excellent.
