Super excellent hotel!”
Good facilities provided. The room is large and clean. The big terrace connects with the natural forest. You could see wild peacock walking around. The dinner is delicious and reasonable price. Here should be the best in the northern part of Sri Lanka.

Very calm and spacious place. Excellent for bird and nature lovers. Different hotel concept. Very less dining options and little expensive than to be expected. Charged for cycling even for kids but, we think those should be available for free. Helpful manager.

Location has not been completed.Breakfast and dinner disappointing in comparison to other places we have stayed and considering the price range. It was not possible for the hotel to provide milk with our morning tea!We felt as we were the only residents that we did not matter! Room facilities were very good.Overall we would rate the hotel as satisfactory and would not really recommend it or return.

No value for money - its just ok to explore”
The rate is always hiked up and I guess this is especially because there is not enough or no other clean hotels in Mannar. The hotel is not too close to Mannar town and it is in the middle of no where. Having said that it is a very quite and clam place. Nothing much to do in the hotel (the swimming pool is not yet ready) than relax and just hang around or travel around Mannar sight seeing. I don't think kids will enjoy as there is no recreational facilities. The staff are very kind and nice. The food menu is very limited. But the set menu breakfast was really lovely. There is only beer and very limited choice of wines. Nothing else for alcohol. Overall the place is not worth the moeny you pay.

The best in Mannar .. But ”
This is beautiful property with well thought of facilities . Mannar is Bird watchers paradise .. And the property it self has plenty of bird life .. Ideal place to relax and unwind well recommended .. Except that there was one issue which Agoda will have to sort out with the management . A lady named Michelle insisted that the commission deducted by Agoda should be paid by us as they received the net amount . Even one of the managers agreed she was correct and wanted to argue . This is the first time a issue of this nature has come up after many bookings done . Not very sure if they agreed that commission bank chargers or any such should be borne by the hotel . As is was a matter of Principal for us there was unpleasantness in trying to explain . Very fortunately the operations manager Mr Udaya stepped in and gave us credit for the full amount paid by us throu Agoda . I must add that Mr Udaya was very helpful , well spoken and attentive . Thank you

Untrained & Unprofessional Staff manager et al”
Location, infrastructure and decor
Well rather disappointing. Staff was not ready and was all casual attire. All in shorts including the manager who had to run for a wash when we asked to see him. We tried calling the given number to establish location. But phone was not answered. Thanks to GPS navigation we managed to find the place. There on the manager was annoyed when we said we booked the upper story as he gave me the lower. He told me he called me the previous day when I had not given a number. He needs hospitality trade etiquette training. Even food served icy cold. Had to send it back to warm up.

Birdwatchers heaven”
beautiful surroundings, bird watching, friendly guests
As overseas visitors without our own transport we found ourselves stranded at the beautiful Palmyrah House. The Manager was away and the young staff spoke little English. Fortunately a fellow guest arranged transport for us to Colombo and also for a trip to Willpatu National Park. The Palmyrah House information both online and in the hotel gave many false impressions - Willpatu was 3hr drive each way and not 1 hr as stated; the beach was much further than 5 mins by bicycle and the Manager appeared to be key to visitors enjoyment but was absent throughout our stay. Had the manager been on site to guide us we feel sure that we would have had a very different experience but unfortunately we were left disappointed. We did take full advantage of the pool and enjoyed birdwatching in the garden. However the pool facilities were neglected and not cleaned during our 4 night stay. Such a shame as Palmyrah House has been beautifully designed and well thought out.

Good location and good sea food
Had a short business visit to Mannar. It has always been a struggle to get some decent accommodation in Mannar. I managed to book in on the Agoda.com on 14th Feb and made the reservation on line.it was love at first sight. Location was great and the reception on arrival was good. Lunch was served with crab curry which was excellent. I had space for a business meeting before travelling to Mannar. Rooms were good and spacious. We occupied a room downstairs and there was sufficient privacy and the staff led by the manager Charith was very courteous and helpful. We didn't have time to enjoy a seafood braai but the morning walk on the Thalimannar road was very invigorating. There were cycles for use by the guests and a new boat had arrived. I have made a reservation at The Palmyrah House next month to visit with some guests from oversees. Charith was kind enough to courier my apple phone charger to Colombo which I forget to pack. It was a good stay and we enjoyed it

Privacy, beautiful clean rooms, excellent service and food,
We loved our stay at Palmyrah House very, very much. The staff were extremely attentive, friendly and helpful. The food was excellent. It was so good, that it made every mealtime an absolute delight. The rooms were very clean, spacious and beautifully furnished. We were very sad, when our stay at Palmyrah House ended. But we will definitely visit again and this time we will stay longer.
