“Hotel near Nallur temple”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 November 2012

We stayed at this hotel for 7 days to attend Nallur temple. Very closely situated. Few minutes walk to the Temple. Very clean and good standard hotel. They provided us with excellent vegetarian meals and the menu changes every day.There is access to WI Fi. The best aspect of the hotel is their staff. They take very personal care of you and nothing is too much. Very friendly staff.
There is a pool. we did not make use of it but did look very clean and tidy
IWe booked directly with their manger- Bernard.and he arranged local transport at reasonble rate.
We hope to stay here again.

We arrived on the overnight bus from Colombo and made our way to this hotel that we had pre booked. It was early but we preferred to walk around Jaffna and find somewhere else to stay rather than stay there when we saw the "deluxe" room we were offered. The one star is for them refunding half of the deposit we had paid.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 October 2012

We recently stayed 3 nights at Lux Etoile in Nallur, Jaffna. It is well located in a safe, quiet and upmarket area of Jaffna. Only a few minutes by car to the Jaffna centre.

Weary from our travels by bus, we were warmly greeted by staff. Our room was cosy and clean. Very good by Sri Lankan standards. The room size is fairly compact (think central London size), which is weird for Sri Lanka. We had a double room with A/C and hot water with a small standing balcony with a view to the garden. The room was serviced during our stay.

There was construction next door (expansion to the existing hotel complex). There was noise but as we were out most of the day it didn't disturb.

The staff were most helpful with all our questions about touring Jaffna, the islands and other logistics. They are attentive and friendly in a hospitable way. We appreciated the way they took care of us!

Tip - We mainly used Jenny Cabs to get around and they have different rates for travelling around the place, which we made full use of. You can request an English speaking driver (or Sinhala, Tamil etc) and they are good at suggesting sights and providing info.

Lux Etoile has a swimming pool with a qualified pool attendant. It's well maintained and clean. We made use of it after sightseeing and could order drinks (food) to the pool area.

The food served at the hotel is delicious and fresh. We ate very well every day (breakfast and dinner). There is good choice of local food (string hoppers, vadai, rice, all kinds of curries) and some other western options. Although we didn't sample, they have pizza and pasta dishes. The wait staff were attentive and likeable.

I would definitely stay here again....

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing to the garden that is quiet.

This hotel has nice rooms which look very clean. At second sight though the bathroom is not that clean as you would expect for the price. Also the shower curtain was mouldy at the inside.
The staff is very friendly and helpfull.
Also the food is good. But it is not very enjoyable to see some of the rice from dinner still on the table-cloth at breakfast.
This points make that we found this hotel currently overpriced ($ 58), but with more attention to these points, it has the potential of being the best hotel in town.
