Clean and friendly hotel

Hotel was a pleasant find. A bit out of the way but once we found it there were no problems. Nice verandah and garden to relax in. After a long hot day walking around we appreciated coming back to cool and relaxing environment. Wifi connection was good. Hotel provided meals but we only ate there once as we felt they were overpriced and westernised. Nice shower and bathroom.

Beautiful stay

We loved our few days stay and a great relief to be out of air conditioning and into some fresh air. The guest house is new and well presented. The family are beautiful and serve the most exquisite Sri Lanka food on the balcony. The area is near to the ruins and the station although it is in a garden setting.

    Kommen gerne wieder!

    Erfrischend abgelegen vom Tubel der Stadt, dennoch per Tuck bestens erreichbar, ist das Great Wall Tourist Rest ein idealer Ausgangspunk für Unternehmungen in Anuradhapura. Das Gebäude besitzt einen englisch-kolonialen Stil mit großzügiger Terrasse zum wunderschönen Garten. Die kleinen Zimmer sind klein, teilweise mit AC ausgestattet, mit hübschem Bad und (dank Durchlauferhitzer) immer warmem Wasser. Überaus herzlich geführt erhält man hier (auf Wunsch) Frühstück UND Abendessen, international oder original srilankisch. Ein toller Ort! Einzig eine tägliche Reinigung der Zimmer im Service wäre super. Wir kommen sehr gerne wieder!
