            Great hotel in polonnaruwa”

            This hotel is not far from the ruins and the hotel will easily organise a Tuk tuk or bikes for you to visit. The rooms are large and clean and have everything you need. Beds are comfy and shower is really good. The terraces are nice overlooking the jungle. The staff are so friendly and accommodating and looked after us despite a wedding going on. The pool was deserted and did need a clean but was nice after a day cycling round the ruins. Breakfast was delicious and our favourite of the trip. We very much recommend the Sri Lankan breakfast here. The hotel is deceptive as it's advertised as a restaurant but behind it in beautiful gardens by the jungle is the hotel - very peaceful. Would definitely recommend

            We enjoyed our stay in the Thidas Arane Hotel a lot. The room was very spacious, clean and relaxed. The hotel has a large large garden area and relaxing swimming pool. We would certainly recommend this hotel to other! The location is convenient for Pollonaruwa which is only 5 to 10 minute drive by car.

            Amazing place in the middle of a beatiful rice fields in the suburbs of Polonaruwa. Luxorious and big bungalows facing the fields. Lovely terrace. Nice pool, nice restaurant and good service. A employer told me that the complex belong to the president of Sri Lanka.

            Amazing room, amazing staff - watch out for bugs in top floor end room”

            From the moment we arrived, the staff here did absolutely everything they could to make our stay a pleasant one. Both the manager and the restaurant manager were attentive and went the extra mile for my partner who was sick at the time, offering awesome Ayurvedic medicine, free ginger and lemon teas and a whole lot of excellent advice in what he should and shouldn't be eating. The food was good. The hotel will definitely benefit from the pool that is currently under construction and a further 40 rooms planned over the next couple of years. It was very quiet when we stayed, only ourselves and one other man in the entire resort (though there are only 8 rooms at present). The room itself was amazing, peaceful serene view over the rice fields, huge high ceilings and a stunning concrete bathroom. Comfy beds. Unfortunately when we came back to our room (top floor above a lotus pond so probably prone to more insects than the other rooms) from dinner, our room and bed were absolutely crawling with insects, ants, small beetles, I can't emphasise enough just how many there were and there was no way we could sleep in the room. I think there were some holes in the mesh between the outside and inside, there were definitely holes somewhere (may have been the wiring that had not been closed off in either the bathroom or bedroom)! The manager told us we had obviously left a window open, but we both checked that everything was shut before we left the room, so that was not the problem. The staff dealt with the issue well and promptly moved us downstairs to a room that had no bugs whatsoever, so we had a great nights sleep in the end! Overall a good experience, tainted by the bugs, but the staff are the highlight of this hotel for sure.

            Though we only stayed one night, so far this was the best hotel we had so far during one week in Sri Lanka. It is about 3 km's from Pollonuwara. Large restaurant and new rooms that were made just some 4 months ago. So all facilities were in excellent shape.

            酒店基本都是独栋别墅,一栋两间房间,整洁度和私密性很高。房间空间超级大,厕所也大,另外之前评论提及到的蚊虫多也不觉得,可能关紧阳台门开大空调会好一点!餐厅经理超级可爱,晚上点菜时一直拿着一盘生的大虾推销,希望我们点,看见我们一开始拒绝也没生气,进了厨房再出来继续8折推销他的大虾;晚餐可能略贵,但服务和出品不错。包含的早餐很丰富!最后,酒店可以提供免费的司机房。
