The location is very good as all the tourist spots are very near. Rooms are clean and internet works well. Water is always available.The best part of this homestay is the sweet owner of this place ( Nisha ). She is very helpful and kind. She is also a very good cook and prepares delicious breakfast for guests. Nisha will try her best to make you feel at home. She even arranged a cab for us to go to Sigiriya and also drew maps for us to go around the town. Would recommend this as a must try in Polonnaruwa.
We stayed here for two nights. the location of the hotel was a little confusing and it feels to be in the middle of nowhere. Compared to other hotels we saw on the road; the design and rooms of this one was pretty much better than the others. however, the food we ordered at dinner was not so great. but breakfast was exceptional. the staff were very friendly and helped with all our requests [extra pillows; towels, hair dryer]. Given the location of the place, there were too many flies and bugs [something that cannot be easily controlled by the hotel due to the location that is surrounded by trees and a pond]. Unfortunately we were unable to use the pool due to the bugs as well that got into the pool before us!
