Our family visited Anuradhapura sacred city in short planning. We found about this hotel from the internet. Hotel is very close to the city and other attractions in the city. We ordered all the meals from the hotel and all of them were great. The room was with new beds and clean and satellite TV.

Just spent the night here last week and it is a very nice place. The room was spacious and beautiful, the staff is friendly and the location is perfect, just 5 min drive to the sacred city, basic facilities overall but you will get value for your money.

Good location and lot of seating areas to relax when you are tired of visiting Anuradapura city. Manager and staff at the cottage gives you all the necessary information about the city. Breakfast was really good compared to the money spend. Recommend for anyone who wants to visit Anuradhapura.
