This is a great little place if you are traveling on a budget. It's a family run place and the owners are hands on at running it and accommodating of guest requirements. The exterior of the buildings might not look fancy, but don't let that put you off. The room and bathroom were very clean and well maintained, although the...

We stayed for a couple of nights with our two children. It made a great base from which to visit the Polonnaruwa ruins and to rest afterwards. We really loved the pool (big hit!) hammocks, gardens, balcony rooms and the plentiful and delicious food. It's a family run establishment and they went out of their way to look after us...

This place was great. The staff were extremely pleasant and helpful. Rooms are a/c and spacious. Big bonus is the pool, after walking around the ruins it was fantastic. Tishan is not too far from town (not to walk ) and very handy to the ruins. A pleasure indeed.
