This is a small/medium hotel. The rooms are clean and in good. Built to high standards. Food is good as well. The staff are more than willing to help you. The pool is not that big. Good place to stay during your family vacation.

Stopped for one afternoon and evening here. Gorgeous, relaxing pool and garden area. Comfortable clean rooms. Good wifi and delicious food at evening buffet. Served by a very friendly and polite Sidath who was helpful and attentive during our evening meal. Would definitely recommend.

This hotel has a calm environment. Good place to relax. Value for money. Staff is very friendly and service is also good. Food is not that great. This is an area where they need to put some attention. Food choices are limited and taste can be enhanced more.

This is a small boutique hotel. The rooms are nice and the surroundings peaceful. The food was extensive and adequate however the meats were hard and inedible and the food seemed to be recycled especially the western food which most tourist did not touch.

Alakamanda is a nice small hotel that we visited for lunch, after seeing the Anuradhapura ruins. They offered a nice buffet of soup, salad, curries, and fruit in a cool, pleasant setting. The food was tasty and fresh, and we were glad to have stopped.

Hotel Alakamanda is a nice, super clean and fare rate hotel with all the facilities. It is located in little bit far away from the Anuradhapura city, but it is well located to enjoy the calm and relaxing stay. Staff is really friendly and need little more improvements in service standards. We booked triple room for one night stay -FB...

Rooms were basic, but ok. There was a bad smell appearing to come from the sink in the bathroom. This was very unpleasant. The pool and garden are nice, but unfortunately there are many mosquitoes. There were very few food choices. The food was ok, but not great. Overall this hotel is ok for one night.
