10,0 Excellent
Pros: Everything - the location, food and hospitality
Cons: Nothing
9,6 Excellent
Pros: Without a doubt, probably the best luxury stay in Anuradhapura and it will definitely exceed your expectation. Kudos to UGA management to keeping up the standards as always. From the checking in until the departure, staff was extremely helpful and so supportive. Always tend to greet the guests with a bright smile, which is so sri lankan and pleasant thing to see. We stayed in a one bedroom pool villa, and it was ideally located and well equipped. Rooms are very spacious and clean. Food was really nice. It was more like living in a village with luxury conditions. Would definitely recommend this to anyone and obviously looking forward for another stay
Cons: The villa we stayed didn't have any good view, it was kind of isolated in the corner of the land. So if you prefer to stay in a villa with a good view, better to inform the hotel or maybe reserver a deluxe villa which has a good panoramic view to the paddy fields.
10,0 Excellent
Pros: Food also very good!
10,0 Excellent
Pros: At was a very nice stay. The Sri Lankan dinner was delicious with amazing atmosphere. Don't miss horse ridding in the lake
Cons: Bicycle need to be renewed
8,3 Excellent
Pros: Absolutely gorgeous villas and facilities Wonderful wildlife and staff very respectful of them (eg did not chase monkeys that were just passing by) Staff super professional and very discreet Delicious breakfast and dinner Luxury experience for sure
Cons: While spending 500$/night for these gorgeous villas seemed like a tolerable splurge for us (and worth it I think), all the rest is gross overpay... Examples : 189 USD for airport transfer (we got one easily on our own for 60 USD), 65 USD for a bottle of Sauvignon Blanc Oyster Bay (worth 10$ in Canada and not even a « good » wine), laundry charge of 2,25 USD per piece of underwear (when you have to wash 3 weeks worth of travel clothing, can add up to a significant bill for just laundry), and the activities offered were also just ridiculously pricey (45 USD/person for archery...really?) so we ended up doing none... I know it’s a luxury hotel and we should expect some degree of priceyness...but in our opinion it’s very exaggerated and left us with a bitter feeling of being trapped in a wonderful place not being able to enjoy the activities offered or a bottle of wine without the impression of getting ripped
9,6 Excellent
Pros: Staff are determined that guests have a perfect stay and work hard as a team to ensure that they do. Beautiful accommodation and grounds. Modern facilities with eco credentials and everything worked ! Loved cycling around hotel grounds and into local village Organised the best day trip to Anuradhapura and Mihintale, including bikes, picnic lunch and personal guide and naturalist - an unforgettable experience.
Cons: Hard to criticise anything, only area to comment would be that the menu did not change at all for the 3 nights we stayed. Is expensive but if you can afford to treat yourself, Ulagalla will not disappoint.

Pros: Everything. It is just perfect.

Senowin Holiday Resort - Anuradhapura - Building
6
7,8 Good (224 reviews)
10,0 Excellent
Pros: The location is perfect. The hospitality of the guest is friendly and helpful and professional. Ideal location for travellers who wish to visit all archeological sites of Anuradhapura city. The place is ideal to stay for foreigners and local tourists.
6,7 Good
Pros: Cheap, grand (though a bit rundown), and centrally located.
Cons: Very poor communication skills — the lad taking care of the place didn’t really have enough English to avoid confusion. When he asked us what we would be doing the following day we told him we had arranged a tuk tuk tour. He took this to mean that we wanted him to arrange a tour for us. So, a driver shows up in the morning, and we go with him only to realize an hour into the pretty awful tour that he is NOT the driver we had arranged, but one the hotel arranged for us without our wanting them to. It was a bit of an uncomfortable situation to have to dismiss this driver 2 hours into an all day tour so that our real guide could come get us...
7,9 Good
Pros: Location is very nice - close to the station, the restaurants, supermarket, bicycle rental shop and banks. Also you can borrow bicycles from here. Staff are very helpful - to arrange taxis and tuktuks.
6,0 Good
Pros: Love the charming environment and the setting. Great location with access to nearest restaurants and great location to access most attractions in the Anuradapura. Very calm place and overall it was a pleasant stay.
Cons: The maintenance and cleanliness could be better. No toiletries. Had a TV in the room but not working. They have to pay more attention on overall maintenance and the cleanliness.

6,0 Good
Cons: Swimming pool has a construction site beside it.
4,6 Okay
Pros: Very little, the balcony was nice for sitting out in the morning for a cuppa.
Cons: Where do I start, one of the main reasons for picking this hotel was the photos of the fabulous looking pool, there was scaffolding and construction work being carried out poolside and although we were told it was open for use but there was building debris floating in the pool and a workman welding directly over the pool?? Our room wasn’t very clean and the furnishings were shabby, the carpet had a large hole burnt into it. We had a discrepancy on the bill total and this took some time and much discussion to sort out. Mini bar prices by far the dearest we experienced in Sri Lanka. We didn’t try the restaurant for dinner so can’t comment on this, but breakfast was not good and the dining room musty and unpleasant.
5,0 Okay
Pros: Room is good and Good breakfast
Cons: The pool is not there to use !! Which they haven't say even during check in

Pros: They gave me the butterflies room which was really cute with a massive very comfortable bed. Good aircom, nice size bathroom. And big shared balcony. Had dinner there 2 nights and food and service was good... really big portions and different dishes to choose from. ( western options available)
Cons: During my stay the swimming pool are was being refurbished so no pleasant to stay there with all workers around but it was clean. That was a bit disappointing as was the main reason for me to book there,so find out before booking if works had finished. Staff was really good, friendly and helpful. Specially Sam... he went an extra mile running to nearby shop to change my big Sri Lanka notes for smaller. Town was walking distance with banks, bus station , shops anything you need.
