Great place
It was great to stay there, we rent bikes and went to the temples that are very close. We had a nice dinner and then our host show us some animals by night. I heartily recommend.

Basic Homestay
Stayed one night in the aircon room. Its very basic and shower is cold! Simle breakfast costs 400Rs. Its easy to lose way finding the main entrance of Polonnaruwa, be very careful! Also, check out time is 11am. I came back from visiting Polonnaruwa around 1pm, the room was still availabe ( actuall no other guests at all) but the owner didnt even allow me to get in to use thr bathroom!! And he didnt give me change for my room payment! Stay somewhere else.

Clean, Spacious and good location
Location of the Ruins Villa was perfect for visiting the ruins. We took a tuktuk to the museum/ticket payment office for the ruins and ended our tour at the ruins closest to the ruins villa (just minutes away). Upali was a very friendly owner who showed us some of the deer at night surrounding the villas, and arranged our elephant safari to Kaudulla National Park, had a better chance to see them here than in Mineria Park, apparantly. Well, we saw loads of elephants and a huge variety of other wildlife. If you want to chill out after a safari or day at the ruins, this is the place for you. Four rooms only so really chilled, and food served is good. Rooms were the cleanest in Sri Lanka that we stayed at. If you want to be more in the action and closer to town then maybe look elsewhere.

Good location, good food at very reasonable price and great service
The location is great, very close to the exit gate of the ancient city.Though no coffee maker in the room, the owner can provide hot water to us whenever we need it. The meal prepared by the owners was delicious and the price quite reasonable if compared with the local restaurant.

Charming stay near the ruins
The host, the setting and dinner
The host Upali was charming and welcoming. The rooms were spotlessly clean and comfortable. The dinner on both nights surpassed our expectations. As we had a driver the setting and location was perfect for us to explore the ruins. It felt like really good value. It was an enjoyable and unforgettable stay.

One of the best place to stay in Sri Lanka
Location, the owner, area
Since I've been there I recommended this place to anyone planning to go Polonnaruwa. It is not in the busy city centre, but anyone who travels around Asia and Sri Lanka knows there is nothing better then nature and a bit of silence around. And Ruins Villa ensures that to you. Plus the owner and his wife are just lovely people, so it's shame not to meet them. We initially wanted to spend there maximum 2 nights and finally spent 4. First - it is the best possible location if you want to visit Polonnaruwa ruins - you just take the bike, ride 10-15 minutes by the beautiful canal to the main entrance and finish all day visit only 50 meters from Ruins Villa. From there you can also book a 1/2 day safari to see dozens elephants living FREE (not like those in sanctuaries). And if you decide to stay longer after intensive visiting - you can have one day bus trip to Kalkudah and relax at beaches there before you go further.

clean, nice people, relaxing
Best accommodation in Sri Lanka. Very friendly staff. The only thing that is missing in the rooms is a trash bin.

Un moment de sérénité
Upali le gérant, l'emplacement et le calme.
Après 12h de vol et 7h de bus, nous avions hâte d'arriver et n'avons pas été déçus. Petite guesthouse, terrasse face a la nature, chambre simple mais clean. Upali est sympathique, prend le temps avec tous ses clients et cuisine très bien (petit dej a tomber!). Singes et chiens dans l'après midi. Chemin buccolique pour aller a vélo a polonnaruwa et sortie des ruines a deux minutes de la guesthouse. Un vrai moment de sérénité.

un petit coin de verdure
paisible, accueil du proprietaire, proximité du site archéologique
Upali nous a transportés de l'arrêt de bus jusqu'à son domaine (un peu éloigné de la ville mais proche du site archéologique). L'endroit est super, paisible, les chambres sont impeccables et spacieuses. Upali est disponible pour trouver des velos et apporter votre linge à la laverie si besoin. Globalement très positif, car tres zen et des repas copieux et bons. Un tres bon rapport qualité prix malgré le fait que certaines prestations soient surfacturees (1l d'eau pour 100rps, petit déjeuner à 400rps/pers sans le thé qui sera facturé 100rps de plus)
