We stayed here for four nights and were happy with the quiet and calmness of the guest house. We had a lovely little courtyard outside our rooms with comfortable chairs and well tended plants - be prepared for the mosquitos though! The rooms were clean and had good mosquito nets. The bathrooms were a little tired, and in one the...

We booked the deluxe room, which was 1000 rps more expensive than the normal basic double. Stayed two nights. We could not figure out what was deluxe. Rags of towels, synthetic sheets, dirty (cobwebs on the walls). We had dinner, which was recommended in the tourist guide book, but the food was nothing special, just food, but not very tasty...

Small place. Comfortable room. Very friendly manager. Very well kept garden. Since there are many restaurants nearby, need not depend for meals. Can be easily booked through booking.com. but don't expect to see the lake from the hotel

The owner was lovely and was very helpful. Breakfast was basic but nice. Room was clean with fan and mosquito net, but shower was an electrical nightmare. Location was good for Anuradhapura, but no lake to be viewed.

We spent there 2 nights. Its near the old bus station (walking distance). So try to leave the bus there instead of new bus station! During our stay Adi really took care about us. He is a funny guy who does everything to make you feel comfortable. The hired bikes were good to bring us to all Anuradhapura sites. The...

We were welcomed with open arms for our one night stay here and were generally satisfied with the place. The room was comfortable, bikes were decent for 300 rupees, and the price was competitive at 1800 with fan (non a/c/no hot water). The location was good near the old bus station. Wifi worked fine near reception, but not at all...

We didn't book any guest house before going to Anuradhapura and had to look for a room. We saw many rooms in different categories but when looking at the price-performance-ratio, Lake View beats 'em all. We paid 2000 LKR a night for a room without AC. It was a very simple room with a double bed and mosquito net over...

We loges to stay here in this very relaxed guesthouse. Basic rooms, a bit oudtantes, but with atmosphere. Beautiful garden, silent place close to city centre. WE felt at home from THE begining. They rent bikes, no wifi, but resort next door has and has swimming pool Where you can swie for 500 rupees.

Its clean, has good mosquito nets, strong ceiling fans, and bike rental. Rooms are basic but functional. Only had breakfast which was good. The owner is really friendly. Overall for 1500rs its a great deal, esp when most places nearby charge twice that.
