Dilshara from Sri Lanka
Family with young children
Triple Room with AC
Stayed 1 night in April 2017
Good location but basic ”
The place was very close to the sacred city. The staff was kind and helpful. However the biggest issue is the cleanliness and room standard. Room was very basic and not spacious at all. The restaurant should have been cleaner and no room for relaxation and walk around . The road side was very close and has a standard pastry shop and a supermarket (seedevi) nearby. Which is a plus. Bathrooms were normal and the stair way to upstair was very very unsafe. Just a ladder like metal stair case not suitable for children Good thing was there were no mosquitoes. The staff asst was nice and helpful. The breakfast was really good. At anuradapura there are enough better options to the same price , so personally feel this isnt a good choice.

Great spot next to the river”
The hotel is basic for facilities but the price is low. However we had a lovely trip out on their boat and the staff couldn't do enough to look after us. Had a great curry one evening next to the river - make sure you have mosquito repellant - and the owner even drove us on to our next destination when we couldn't find a car. Try a spot of bird throwing while you are there.

Fantastic staff”
A Little bit off the other guest house and Hotels, but in a lush garden, very quiet. Staff was extremely helpful in organising trips, bicycle tours to the nearby ancient city of Anuradhapura or also Tuk-Tuk to Mahintale (also very worthwhile!). Guest House is currently being expanded, but is likely to improve offer in due time. recommendable!

Just one night stay at this city”
Staff Breakfast quiet
This place is in the old town, a few blocks away from the city. Located in the village, there were many ants in rooms. But it's very quiet, we all had a sound sleep. The staffs are nice but the stair cases are not in good condition. Anyhow, worth the money for their friendly help and service.

Expected more for what I paid”
Hot shower. Clean Sheets. Check in staff friendly and tried to be helpful
I wandered if the staff were aware of out booking. Room was a strange setup. One double bed & that took up the room & a table with a plastic chair squeezed in. Cups for breakfast tea came with coffee or tea stains as it has not been washed and one with a broken lip. We had requested coffee but was given tea. When this was clarified, waiter brought some coffee in a small milk jug, uncovered. It was only enough for one person and a tiny bit at the bottom for the other person. With Sri Lankan string hopper breakfast the fish was only one piece that was approx 2"x1" each. This seems to be the norm in Sri Lankan hotels at this level to provide a minute amount of fish or meat, but plenty of veg curry. Food was tasty enough though. Table cloth did not fit the table and was put on slapdash with no care, at an angle from the sides, one side hanging long and the other very short. Table cloth had stains including reddish brown stains, we wondered if some of them were splattered blood stains from smashing mosquitos on to the table. Waiter was wearing just a shirt and shorts that he probably wore to play cricket the day before, he lacked any training. He never attended the table area, I had to find him and call him from the kitchen. Bathroom had no ventilation apart from back to the room bringing any smells and damp air with you. The locking bolt for bathroom door was not aligned so WON'T lock. We also found Agado rate for this hotel is double what the hotel charges for direct bookings. What we paid with Agado was too much for what's offered. It was hard to find. When we called the staff at the hotel did not speak English to give directions, but we communicated in Sinhala, so with difficulty found the place. Check in staff member was very helpful, in trying to meet our needs. He also suggested a really good local restaurant for dinner (Mango Mango). Air conditioning worked. Excellent hot water power shower. Toilet paper as well as"hand shower" provided in toilet. Quiet

Ideal for a one night stop”
breakfast, friendliness, river side
just fine for a short stop on the way to the North. Staff is very friendly, SL breakfast was very good. Due to a heavy flash rain, we had some leaking in the room but the staff offered immediately to change the room. We decided to stay and after the rain, everything was back to normal. A bit more attention to the exterior would add some character to the place (potted plants, clean river shore).

Friendliness - atmosphere - meals
We were surprised by the location of this hotel. Having breakfast on the terrace by the river was absolutely an experience! We saw a crocodile, numerous king fish, etc. very romantic place and very nice to come back to after a long day seeing sites of Anaradnapura. Go there :-) Juliette
