The rooms were clean. Bathrooms were clean because of poor maintenance it doesn't seem like it is clean. For sure they need renovation. We didn't stay for a long time.. We had A/C room and had to go to the reception three times to turn it on from the system. Overall this an okay place. Nothing much wow about it.

The meals...

I was there for a short family visit for Anuradhapura . I had a bad experience with the place I already selected and luckily I managed to find this place with a short notice. This is located right next to nuwarawewa and you can see the breathtaking view from the rooms. However, the hotel has not been renovated for ages...
