Seyara Holiday Resort
Ranked #2 of 17 Hotels in Polonnaruwa
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 24 October 2017 via mobile

The staff were extremely welcoming and helpful with everything we needed to do. The pool is essential as Polonnaruwa can get extremely hot at times and you need a bit R&R after a day of sightseeing around the town.

We've stayed at a few places in Sri Lanka which made a small fortune out of us at every opportunity.

In this resort everything was reasonably priced and good quality. The rooms are clean, tidy and spacious. The food on offer is excellent and the buffets are a delightful opportunity to sample authentic cuisine.

The staff were friendly, attentive and very accommodating.

The swimming pool is a nice touch and made our stay even more pleasant and relaxing.

The manager and also the owner, were incredibly helpful, welcoming and friendly.

Stayed: September 2017

We stayed in Polonnaruwa at Seyara for two nights and found Seyara very good. The hosts were warm, friendly and very helpful. We had limited time to do all of the things we wanted to but this proved to be no problem. No sooner had we arrived than we were organised and off on the elephant safari (which was a must do for us) at Minnerya. Dinner at the resort was very good homestyle Sri Lankan buffet. Breakfast the same - great choice of western or tasty Sri Lankan string hoppers or coconut pancakes. This is great as eating options are limited in Polonnaruwa. Our bikes were organised for us and enabled us a long day of temples and ruins with relaxing by the pool in the late afternoon. Rooms are large, airy, simple but very clean and with a nice balcony. We also had AC in our room. The next day we organised a driver to Kandy from the hotel. A truly family run resort. Great value for money. I would give another half star if I could. Relatively quiet and not on the main road - down a laneway.

Room Tip: Ask for room with balcony

This hotel staff are lovely and friendly. The pool is very refreshing as it is super hot, and the rooms are basic but clean and have what you need.

We stayed here for two nights, the breakfast was not good but the evening buffet was lovely. The wifi is very poor, non existent for the iPhone, but it wasn't needed for us, but if you have work to do then this is not the place.
