That was really nice stay in this hotel. We had room near the swimming pool - big and clean. After visit in the ruins of Polonnaruwa ( very hot day) we could spent nice time near the swimming pool. There are some bicycles in Siyanco Hotel you can ride near the lake ( early morning is beautiful at this place)....

I don't think there are any other hotels that are this close (easy walking distance) to the ruins of Polonnaruwa. The welcome wasn't particularly warm, the room was quite sparse and sterile but the aircon was great. Wifi only available in common areas. Apparently the newer section's rooms are much better so request those when you book. There is a...

The hotel is located in a central position for visiting Polonnaruwa archeological site. Staff is ok even if not very informed about general information about the area. Room was ok but still really bad ventilation and we had the noise coming from the kitchen all evening long. They tried to be as much kind as possible, but just when we...

Quiet little restaurant packed away inside a hotel near the museum. Good choice of food on the menu and the setting is very clean. They also have a beautiful pool although not sure if you can use it unless you are a guest?

Booked this hotel because we were looking for something mid range for a single night and decided upon a hotel rather than a guest house. I expected basic accommodation. The room smelt musty although my friend's room smelt ok. Ordered a basic lunch, the chicken sandwich was edible but contained a lot of skin. The curry and rice looked good....
