Hotel S.G.M
Ranked #15 of 17 Hotels in Polonnaruwa
Reviewed 16 July 2017

This is one of the worst places that I have stayed in. We checked in around 9 pm on 11 July 2017, and were given rooms 302, 303 and 304.

The rooms were not clean and the bathrooms were disgusting with gecko droppings and cockroaches.

Two of the rooms had a shared bathroom that was not mentioned when we booked by phone. It was too late in the night to look for alternative accommodation with the family, so we stayed on.

Room Tip: Reconfirm room cleanliness before committing to this hotel.

We stayed 2 nights in a luxury room. The room was big and clean, had 2 fans, ac and a fridge. We got a good breakfast served in our room at the time we had asked for the night before (included in the room price). We also ate one dinner here, and got that served in our room by the guys working there. We ordered a small fried rice and small fried noodles, and got two huge plates that we could barely finish. Tasted great and the price (250LKR each) was ok for a hotel room-service order of that size. The hotel is a 5min walk from the main strip of the old town (where a lot of buses go to and from Kandy, Dambulla and the main bus station outside of town) in a quiet neighbourhood. They got us bikes for rent for our day in the archeological areas. They didn't have their own bikes, but went and got them for us so we could just jump on them right after breakfast. All in all they went out of their way to help us and make our stay easy and great. This is a new hotel, and we would definitley recommend staying here.

The Owner, Manager and the staff were really helpful. We really appreciate the support that they gave us to make our educational excursion to Polonnaruwa.
