"On our trip around Sri Lanka for 2 weeks my mother and I shared a room, but at Alakamanda it was such incredible value we booked 2 rooms. The staff were so helpful arranging drivers and guides for the local ruins and a safari to Wilpattu National Park where we were lucky enough to see a large male leopard. A trip highlight. The food was excellent, the staff allowing us to make special orders for the next day of traditional local dishes. Breakfast and dinner. The hotel was our first stop but at the end of our 2 weeks in Sri Lanka which included lots of local restaurants and 5 hotels we agreed that the food at Alakamanda was the best we had. They mentioned the upcoming addition of a pool and another half dozen rooms, which would be a great addition. Right now it has only 6 rooms which make steh level of personal service exceptional"

"It was our second stay at Heritage hotel in Anuradhapura and management did not disappoint us again, on the contrary. Staff is again friendly and service minded, especially for one of our disabled companions. The scenery from the hotel is magic: the beautiful view of Thissa Wewa with all the 2000 year old large Dagoba’s on the horizon. Breakfast and dinner are buffets and have a good selection for everyone from Western to Sri Lankan food. And is it not there and you ask it, than they will bring you it if it is in the kitchen: like my tasteful mango ice cream. Rooms are clean and wide with airco. The bathroom has a shower."

"This was the first place we stayed on our trip to Sri Lanka and what a welcome we received! The room was gorgeous with a balcony and views overlooking the paddy fields. We lay in bed and watched the sunrise. So relaxing and peaceful. The room was spotlessly clean and the bed super comfortable making for a great night's sleep. The people are so friendly, they couldn't do enough for us, helping to organise transport, laundry and trips. We ate there every evening and the food was excellent. We recommend asking the hotel to organise a tuk-tuk to visit the ancient sites of Anuradhapura. The driver who took us was very knowledgeable, spoke great English and gave us a great insight into the history, culture and wildlife of Sri Lanka. Book this hotel, you won't be disappointed!"

"We had two nights to stay in Anuradhapura, and during our stay we both seen the city and travelled to Dambulla and Sigiriya from there. The staff of the hotel was exceptionally professional, helping us in everything we needed. Probably in terms of service this was our best hotel on Sri Lanka. The restaurant is very good priced with good variety of food. The room was also very nice, with television and big bathroom. Internet is really working there, which is a good point, since many other hotels promiss the wi-fi, but it's too slow or not really working. We had a very good stay in the hotel, I would definitely recommend it as your starting point to explore Anuradhapura and the region."

"There is a severe water shortage in the area where this hotel is located and some shortcomings that came about as a result of this unfortunate weather situation we do not hold against this property. This was especially the case when we didn't have water in the bathroom on three occasions. This however does not excuse the smelly dinnerware nor the shoddiness and hazards present due to ongoing construction at the property. The staff was attentive but room service and food in general was very slow - the times indicated on the room service menu was not at all accurate in our experience. "
