    Great food

    The room was absolutely fine, it was clean and basic which was expected given the price. It's location by the lake was very pretty. Where this place excels is in the food. The breakfast was delicious and plenty of choice. We also paid for the dinner which was also extremely tasty and plentiful. You share your meals with the other guests which was fine by us but may not be for everyone.

    Beau logement

    Hôte sympathique, on est arrivé très tôt (9h30) et notre chambre a été prête très rapidement et on nous a offert un petit dej sommaire sans qu'on ne le demande. Il nous a organisé la visite du site d'Anuradhapura en tuktuk. Par contre, il semble un peu "filou" et pousse à la consommation : il nous a dit qu'il n'y avait pas ou peu de bus depuis Mihintale et qu'il fallait mieux y aller en tuktuk (on est revenu sans soucis), de même il nous a dit que pour aller à Negombo c'était 3h en taxi et 5h en train (ça me semble exagérer...). Il vaut mieux bien se renseigner. Sinon petit dej copieux et bon (on ne choisit pas l'heure par contre c'est pareil pour tous les convives) Diners bons et agréables de le partager tous ensemble autour d'une grande table Logement un peu excentré Belle chambre

    Lovely hotel located directly in front of a lake

    A quite nice hotel located directly in front of a lake with the charme of a guesthouse. The rooms were very clean and equipped with AC. Our host welcomed us with a cup of freschly brewed tea. He and his staff were very nice and helpful. The breakfast included plenty of Sri Lankan dishes and was as delicious as the Dinner. We can just recommend to have dinner at the hotel. The host will help you to plan your day at Anuradhapura and if you are interested in an guided tour through the Sacret City, he will be your guide. He also will offer a ride to Mihintale at sunset. We can recommend both tours with him. He will tell you a lot about the area but also he will give you all the time you need to explore the city. We had two wonderful days at Anuradhapura and would always stay at the Heritage Lake View again.

    Homestay wirh lakeview

    The owner was really helpful and welcoming. Also provides excursions to Mihintale and the heritage site by tuk-tuk for SLR 2000-2500. Breakfast and dinner were good and so big we couldn’t finish it. Due to the proximity to the lake there are a lot of mosquitoes and we were told there are sometimes crocodiles in the lawn outside. The description on the site is somewhat enthusiastic, there is neither safety deposit box, bath robes, slippers or daily cleaning. I don’t expect that from accommodation of this category but it shouldn’t be promised IMHO.
