              I had a really good stay at Rock Cascade. It was for sure more than what I've expected. The lady owner was very nice, warm & caring. Highly recommend to have dinner & breakfast there as her cooking was very fine. Very nice & comfortable environment with lots of plants and beautiful lotus, the dog was very friendly & lovely. I felt like home with a caring sister who only wants the best for you. I would definitely stay there again. Good value of money and a very pleasing experience.

              Location, communal sitting areas and a warm welcome
              We spent 2 nights here and received a very warm welcome from Nisha, the owner, who also lives on the premises. Nicely situated down a quiet side street, but within easy walking distance to the town. The room was clean and comfortable with plenty of hot water, and there was lovely outdoor garden seating area to sit and have a beer or breakfast. Made for a very pleasant stay. Recommended.

              Friendly, location, price
              I really enjoyed my stay at Rock Cascade. The room was very basic but the bed was comfortable and the water for the shower was hot. The owner is very friendly and helpful (even reserved a bus ticket for me for Anuradhapura and brought me to the main road to flag down the right bus) and is a good cook. Had all my meals there pretty well. Very pleasant home stay.

              Great food and relaxing garden.”
              Really yummy curry and rice dinner, lots of pleasant places to relax in the garden, friendly host.
              We liked Rock Cascade. Yes the owner is chatty (her English is excellent) but she has the right sort of personality to be running a home stay. On our request, she had push bikes delivered for us and other guests to explore the sites. And she advised us which bits we could see early in the morning before the ticket office opened (good to get an early start in the heat). The curry dinner was all very tasty (we ate curry and rice most places and hers was probably the best). She was happy to accommodate my request to not have sweet hoppers for breakfast when it was suggested at dinner (trying to avoid gluten), though was obviously a bit put out that she couldn't talk me around! I think that was really just her enjoyment of cooking for people rather than a reluctance to serve something different. The room was basic but ok. No screen on the bathroom window which also was the type that tilts but doesn't ever shut) but there were mozzie nets (we had to sleep under separate, single size nets). There were mothballs the bathroom - we thought to combat mozzies coming in the drain and window... but they reeked terribly so we actually wrapped them up until we were leaving. The hot water worked, there were towels and hand towels (a nice change), and top sheets for the beds (calico pieces but comfy enough). It's not a particularly quiet place to stay - we were worn out and slept well anyway, but there was a lovely little pond outside our window so at times the frogs were croaking about 1 metre from my head. Also, because it is a true home stay, if people are watching TV loudly in the lounge, then you will hear it in the room. Getting off the bus, we were approached by her neighbour with his tuk tuk waving her business card and saying she sent him (and paid) when she didn't. We ignored him since the owner wasn't expecting us off the bus; he is hoping for your repeat business (like everyone!) but if you have a map view of the location like we did, you'll find it ok on your own.

              Nishanthi the owner/hostess was very pleasant. Like staying with a friend.
              It is a little hard to find because it is not directly on Circular Road. Come in from the road to the north at the cell phone tower. The place is next to another cell tower. It is a very nice homestay. You may have to ask to turn the WIFI on. Nishanthi cooked dinner (with beer) and breakfast served on the patio.

              Home stay, charming hostess, location
              As a home stay, this is experiencing Sri Lankan living. The owner/hostess was charming. We sat in the kitchen chatting with her and her helper as they cooked us a dinner on a traditional Sri Lankan cooker and served beer. Rooms are basic but adequate with mosquito nets, bathrooms, fans, and AC. We ate on the veranda in the front garden. Finding the place takes a bit of asking around as it is not directly on Circular Drive. You may have to ask for the WIFI to be turned on.

              Lovely guesthouse with friendly staff”
              Close to Pollonnaruwa Ancient City, amazingly friendly and attentive staff and awesome home cooked food
              We had a great time here. The staff were there to help rather than take your money and gave us advice, arranged bikes, etc (they even took us to a local festival and stayed with us so we wouldn't get lost) and the food was provided on demand with a few options (we got the curry both nights because it was so amazing). The room was clean and comfortable and what you'd expect for this kind of price range. All in all a great hotel and one of the best we've stayed in in Sri Lanka! Ps when trying to find the guest house, navigate to Circular Rd, then walk towards the huge radio tower. Once underneath it you should be able to see the sign.
