During our two night stay there were two weddings in the hotel, which were held during the daytime and added some local flavor to the place. Helpful staff. Situated in an area with... More

Considering the price and location Miridya is a great place to stay in. The hotel has many commodities like swimming pools, pool table and WIFI. By conversing with the manager I came to find out that currently some parts of miridiya are being rebuilt and modernised. The rooms are spacious and clean. There is a lot of wildlife to see... More

The location of the hotel is really good. Stay was above average. Anuradhapura is the most celebrated of Sri Lanka’s ancient ruined cities. The city’s greatest treasures are its dagabas constructed of small sun-dried bricks and hemispherical in shape. The places to visit are within short distance from the hotel which makes this convenient

Big and clean room. Bathroom dark due to insufficient light. U shape hotel with balconies facing each other - no privacy. Nice garden. Basic breakfast - eggs, bad service. Bread and rolls not fresh. Reception has poor communication skills.

We group of 35 people stayed 01N, it was nice pleasant stay, actually location & atmosphere of the hotel is really good, miridiya lake facing location, but not managed well, it could be better. Food was not great but good, rooms are slightly old. Good for reasonable stay, not with a high exceptions. Staff is very helpful.
