This hotel has a calm environment. Good place to relax. Value for money. Staff is very friendly and service is also good. Food is not that great. This is an area where they need to put some attention. Food choices are limited and taste can be enhanced more.

This is a small boutique hotel. The rooms are nice and the surroundings peaceful. The food was extensive and adequate however the meats were hard and inedible and the food seemed to be recycled especially the western food which most tourist did not touch.

Alakamanda is a nice small hotel that we visited for lunch, after seeing the Anuradhapura ruins. They offered a nice buffet of soup, salad, curries, and fruit in a cool, pleasant setting. The food was tasty and fresh, and we were glad to have stopped.

Hotel Alakamanda is a nice, super clean and fare rate hotel with all the facilities. It is located in little bit far away from the Anuradhapura city, but it is well located to enjoy the calm and relaxing stay. Staff is really friendly and need little more improvements in service standards. We booked triple room for one night stay -FB...

Rooms were basic, but ok. There was a bad smell appearing to come from the sink in the bathroom. This was very unpleasant. The pool and garden are nice, but unfortunately there are many mosquitoes. There were very few food choices. The food was ok, but not great. Overall this hotel is ok for one night.

We stayed here to be close to the wonderful ruins of Anuradhapura. The room and grounds were fine, clean and modern although the layout of the room was odd - it had a section down the side of the room which had no real purpose? Having had a great buffet lunch at a different guest house we chose off the...

Probably the best hotel in the area. Its a new hotel and its situated fairly close to the places of interest. The hotel staff were very helpful and their service was excellent. Not too many choices when it comes to food, but there will be something everyone will like.

I visited the hotel on the 6th of January 2017. The hotel is located in a quiet part of the town and the room was spacious and clean. The interior of the room was modern and we had hot water supply through out the day. The staff we interacted with were very friendly and helpful. There is a mini garden...
