    Nice place with great restaurant on the balcony-one of the best curries we've had! You can rent bikes from the host at a cheap price to explore the ancient city-too far to walk. Cleaningness was basic,but start very nice and helpful!

    Very Good

    Strange place, but clean and comfortable for the night. WAY overcharged for dinner and bicycle and A/C, and made a fuss about calling a tuktuk early in the morning. There was almost no one else staying there, but I got placed in a room that was super weird to get to - all the way up a bunch of stairs, through the dining hall, down a few hallways... Overall fine.

    We arrived at the hotel late at night. It seemed we were the only guests staying. The hotel appeared to be a little dated and hadn’t been well maintained recently. Our room had a few bugs in it, thankfully there were mosquito nets. Whilst the bathroom was basic the shower worked well! The WiFi was very good! The night we arrived we were provided with a big Sri Lankan buffet which was tasty! Location okay, only a short drive to the city ruins.

    The air con did not work properly and we were not told the price of food before ordering, only given two choices. Overpriced dinner and breakfast.

    The WiFi only worked in the reception and the hotel was not clean (the tablecloths and napkins at breakfast were still covered in dinner from the night before). The dinner was good but the breakfast was bad - literally just jam and bread. The location is fairly good (a short distance to the ruins) and the option to hire bikes for this journey was appreciated. The staff were also quite odd with us and seemed pretty rude.
