  • I will very much recommend Manjula's place for anyone going to Anuradhapura. Although it is a home stay with Manjula and his family, however you have the whole top floor to yourself and there is a lot of privacy. The bedroom is superb, comfy four poster bed and fully air conditioned. I am midway through our Sri Lanka 3 weeks tour and I must say Manjula and his wife prepared us the best Sri Lankan breakfast so far. Manjula also provided us great tips to explore Anuradphura and we also rented bicycles to explore the UNESCO site. Don't miss the early evening praying ceremony at Maha Bodhi. It was a very special experience and Manjula will be able to arrange a tour with one of his friends who is a tuk tuk driver to do it.

  • I don't know where to start to describe how wonderful Manju and his place is. It's a 2 story house. Manju and family stay on bottom level. Guest has full privacy and access of whole 2nd level, including the guest room with ensuite bathroom, a dining/living area, a smaller balcony for relaxing and a bigger balcony for breakfast. The room is very clean and comfortable. Manju is a wonderful and kind hearted person. He picked me up from bus stop upon arrival and sent me to bus stop and helped me get on the right bus. He also helped me arrange a half day tour to Mihintale, which I enjoyed very much. He recommend a guide for me for touring the ancient city the next day. Oh my god, I am so happy to have met him. His name is Chana. He's so informative, humble, wise and joyful. He's more than just a tour guide. So is Manju, more than a home stay host, more like a friend. His wife is lovely and great cook. I enjoyed my home made traditional Sri Lankan dinner so much! I can't recommend this place enough. I am a very lucky girl to have stayed at his place and have met these wonderful and peaceful people.

  • Was so blown away by the hospitality Manjula and his family showed me. They really want above and beyond their call of duty to ensure I was comfortable. I really felt like I was a part of their family! Really clean, private space with a great vibe. Definitely returning again soon!

    Nilangi2017-12-09T00:00:00Z
  • Seriously can't recommend this place enough This house is SO comfortable. The upstairs is basically like having your own private apartment, with two different balconies to hang out on. The wifi was fantastic, the AC unit one of the best I've come across, and Manjula is a WEALTH of knowledge. I'm not kidding. Buy that guy a cup of coffee/tea and just hang out and pick his brain, he knows so much about the area and the history. They had bicycles to rent, which was a perfect way to get around and see the sights, made me a great map with informational recommendations, and 100% of the time made me feel so welcome in their home. Thank you Manjula, and your whole family, for such a pleasant and relaxing experience. It was exactly what I needed!

    Jeremy2017-05-02T00:00:00Z
  • Manjula is a bundle of joy and energy. He and his family were great hosts throughout our short stay. Food, room and assistance was nothing short of incredible. We were made to feel very welcome, and even got the pleasure of spending the day with a very charismatic tuk-tuk driver, handpicked by Manjula himself. Would definitely recommend a stay here - it made Anuradhapura a delight to explore.

    Martin2017-04-05T00:00:00Z
  • Manjula is a tour guide, he knows a lot of things, so don't be worried if you don't have any plans, just come, and he will give you some advice for sure! His family are very nice and friendly, you can ask anything you need and they will help you as possible as they can. The room for guests is on the upstairs, they will go upstairs very often. You have a private bathroom, and it's very clean. My friend and I only stayed one night, but we really had a wonderful memories here:) I'll give a highly recommended for sure!

    Ying-tung2017-03-17T00:00:00Z
  • Manju and Rona were wonderful and kind hosts who speak good English. They have two adorable young children. The day I arrived they mentioned a Buddhist ceremony that afternoon and evening, which was an amazing experience I would otherwise had missed. They also went out of their way to make me an evening meal at short notice, which I thoroughly enjoyed. You get the whole upper floor to yourself! Bedroom, ensuite bathroom, lounge, outside kitchette with dining area, two other balconies, all in a quiet setting. The breakfasts were both substantial and delicious, with a choice of Ski Lankan or western. The four poster bed with mosquito net was comfortable. The shower was hot and powerful. The room also had AC and a fan. I had some lovely conversations with Rona and I shall cherish my time with them. My only regret is that I could not stay with them longer. This was my first AirBnB experience and I couldn't have asked for anything better. Needless to say I highly recommend staying at the M House.

    Gary2017-01-31T00:00:00Z
  • Manjula was great. He is a natural host. He really knows the ins-and-outs of tourism in his area and was able to give me lots of information and feedback about the plans I was making. He could even give me details about other destinations in the ancient cities region of Sri Lanka. His English is excellent. His place is amazing. You get the whole upstairs, which is a bedroom, sitting area, 2 (really three) balconies, a lovely modern bathroom. There is a fridge, some other kitchen elements, fans, and a very nice AC. Everything is beautifully decorated, with matching fabrics, framed art on the walls, a collection of oil lamps on the balcony. There is a comfortable king sized four-post bed, with a great mosquito net. Breakfast is wonderful, much more that I could ever eat. Every morning was a different spread of interesting Sri Lankan foods. Manjula explained what each dish was. The neighborhood was quiet and small, kids and dogs playing. It's just off the main road, where you can walk to a small restaurant that serves inexpensive Sri Lankan dishes, or you can walk a bit farther down a lane to a hotel with a menu with more western style dishes, and beer and wine(URL HIDDEN)rented a bike from Manjula, and pedaled through town to the ancient sites. He drew some maps for me each day with a good itinerary. Only now, I wish that I had hired him for his bicycle tour. I usually prefer not to use a guide, but to spend the day with Manjula, with his wonderful English and great knowledge would have been worth the money. I can be such a Cheap Charlie sometimes. When my own unclear communication created a hardship for Manjula, he was gracious about the situation. And when he found that I had left a beloved old book light behind in the room, he rushed back to the bus station and gave it to me. Thanks, Manjula!

  • The place is very close to the airport. The rooms are very clean and spacious! Really comfortable stay. It is a very good bargain.

    Lindsay2016-11-06T00:00:00Z
  • Ajith's place is gorgeous, a real treat. We spent 2 nights here, and loved every moment - from great sleeps in the four poster beds, to tea on the verandah in the early morning, to delicious meals in the private dining room, to cycling around the old city on his bicycles, to swimming in the pool after a long day of temple visits. The place is beautifully restored and is set in spacious grounds filled with trees and birds, and is quite literally, in the heart of the old city. Ajith was an attentive host, ensuring we had everything we needed, and sharing his love of his country with us. We highly recommend staying here.

    Anna2016-12-08T00:00:00Z
  • Where do I start? I felt like i had been transported back to another time where we should have been wewring dinner suits and long dresses. The long driveway lead to the front porch. We walked nto the lounge with bedrooms flanking each side then into the dining room. Furniture stunning with an ecclectic mix of heirlooms and more recent pieces. Ajith the most amazing host. Told wonderful stories and we diacussed politics into the night. And the food ..... wonderful!,!!,! The place had been rescued from oblivion by Ajith and I so recommend it. Wpnt dwell too long on falling in love with his sweet dog that had been kidnapped by an eagle and broke her back so could only move using front legs to carry her along.... xxx thanks again Ajith and your wonderful people.

    Louise2016-11-12T00:00:00Z
  • Our stay in Anuradhapura was fully satisfactory, not only due to the old city's magical atmosphere but also thanks to the marvelous time we had as Ajith's guests. His house is venerable and beautiful, mixing the unequaled charm of the old colonial times and a modern comfort. It was a pleasure to enjoy the terrace in the morning, looking at the squirrels and peacocks hanging around. We were constantly looked after with care and friendly attention. Ajith is a perfect host, paying attention to our needs but also respecting our privacy when needed. Having an international background, he perfectly understands western tourists' expectations, which is convenient. He efficiently helped us to arrange some tours at good price and took some time to discuss about Sri Lanka. His staff are as warm and helpful as himself, also able to prepare some delicious and generous breakfasts and diners, partly made from the garden's organic production. The house is tidy and well maintained, no bad surprise to expect. The swimming pool is not huge and the water, taken from a well is greenish but absolutely safe. Our kids enjoyed it every day of the week spent there. Last point, the location is unique. There is hardly any inhabited construction in this sacred area, which ensures quiet and relaxing times. The modern city as well as the historical sites are all in a short tuktuk / bicycle distance. By the way, bicycles are also provided by Ajith. We warmly recommend this place and would love to come back another time.

  • Ajith and his crew are very nice and helpful. Especially Ajith, the host of the heart of the sacred city, he not only offered us a amazing place to stay, but also invited us to see his beautiful photos taken in Sri Lanka's nature park and other places. If you plan to visit that city or around there, don't miss that places and men. Strongly recommend !

    海燕2015-12-29T00:00:00Z
  • The property is superb, a serene villa nestled in a large private wooded area right in the midst of the Anuradhapura ancient city - literally. The staff was always available, never intrusive and delightful - and cook up delicious Sri Lankan food!!

    John2016-07-17T00:00:00Z
  • What an epic place! Easily one of the most magical experiences on our Sri Lankan trip. The place is in the middle of the sacred city and you can use the bikes provided by Ajith. The beds were 5 star, the grounds were beautiful and the curry was delicious.

    Annie2017-02-07T00:00:00Z
  • We stayed in a piece of paradise tucked away in the sacred city Anuradhapura. It was a perfect location from which to visit the ruins and Wilpattu National park. Smith is a marvelous host organizing stunning safaris for us to see the elephant gathering and Wilpattu. When we needed assistance he was there to translate, find an Internet cafe and birds - he is a good tracker! The house is a gem from the colonial past which has been tastefully restored. The garden is glorious full of wildlife and some of the biggest frangipani trees I have ever seen. As far as meals go we eat at home every day of our six day stay because the Chef is a pearl. Sumptuous and varied meals were mouth watering. Temple visits were organized, fascinating and literally at our doorstep. Our rooms were super with lovely four posters, gorgeous ebony furniture and good air con. Tea on the lovely porches was a highlight. The staff are charming and thoughtful we were spoiled. In sum Cadjin Sacred is a wonderfully special place to stay if you are lucky as we were.

  • Upali's place is perfectly located for all the sites. Their hospitality, willingness help and provide information is commendable.

    Manjuka2017-12-22T00:00:00Z
  • Upalis homestay is very wellcoming, situated at the lakeside in a quiet place of anuradhapura. He rent bikes so we could explore the tempels and ruins for the whole days. The garden was good to relax the next morning before travelling further on.

    Therese2017-12-06T00:00:00Z
  • The hosts were very friendly and helpful. They organized the drivers for the tours and gave a lot of helpful advices. The whole family was very nice to have a chat with. The mother is also a great cook - we were eating local eco food only in the house. We stayed for one night but if there was something wrong - just tell them and they will be happy to fix it.

    Martynas2017-11-16T00:00:00Z
  • The food, hospitality and location are superb. We extended our stay and still did not want to leave.

    Kathy2017-12-29T00:00:00Z
  • We travel with AirBnB since 2012 through half of the world. Our stay at Upali's place was a real highlight. Upali, his wife Sunanda and their son Milan run a very private and individual place. The Hall - nice and cool place for breakfast, dinner and also nightly gaming with other guests. The garden - very relaxing area, quiet (one house is being build next door, but no inconvinience), some hammocks and - most importent: direct access to the lake! Upali hat some big tubes - very relaxing! The rooms: They have 9 rooms. all very individually with nice colors and quite good matrazes, most with AC. Some rooms got new colors during our stay. They look very nice. Some rooms have lake view. Food: Yammi, that was delicious! Upali and his wife mainly cook themselves. They always try to comfort there guests and will find a solution if you don't like this or that or prefere something. They know about foreighn guests and their wishes. The two dogs: Well educated, friendly with our kids, clean and trustful. The neighbourhood: quiet, save, lots of gardens. It is about 1km to the new bus-stand and about 3km to the sacred city. Upali knows a lot of good guides speaking English, German and other languages. Some guest used the bicycles, we went with a threewheeler. Upali also knows a big lot about all areas of Sri Lanka. He arranged several tours with other guests and found them - as we were told - very good hotels in other cities like Arugam Bay, Trincomalee, Sigiriya etc. We are very experienced in Sri Lanka and had so many extra wishes - he made all of them become reality! To cut it short: Upali and his Lake Wave Hotel is a beautiful host at a best place and an absolut recommodation! We will come again, for sure!

    Wolfgang2017-09-06T00:00:00Z
  • Great extra services for getting around to sights!

    Tera2017-11-24T00:00:00Z
  • Nice and cosy room with AC. The view was good, lot's of birds and not to many moskitos. You can walk there from the New Town railway station easily. Upaly (the owner) is a very nice and funny guy who also organized a tour with us to see Sigiriya, Dambulla and ruin in the forest. We also had the chance to wash an elefant and Upali showed us a very good ayurveda place, which was the best and cheapest place we visited in Sri Lanka. The only problem was the AC, which was directly over the bed and very loud.

    Sophie2017-09-18T00:00:00Z
  • Upalis Hotel is really great. He and his family are very helpful and friendly. The meals are fantastic. They gave us lots of tips concerning our following journey. A friend of us visited us there but booked a room somewhere else. It was no problem that he could eat and stay with us in the garden. Recommended!

  • Staying at Manjulas house was one of the highlights of my trip. The room was lovely, clean, in a great location. Had some of the best Sri Lankan breakfast of our trip here too. Manjula hired us bikes and gave us a map and tips for the best way to ride around the city. It was lovely meeting his family and staying in their beautiful home - highly recommended.

    Jessica2017-09-19T00:00:00Z
  • I had a lovely stay at Manjula's place. The breakfast was so delicious and they kindly put together a picnic breakfast for me when i was heading out early sightseeing. I would also recommend taking the bikes to discover the sacred city, it was the best way to get around.

    Kristina2017-09-02T00:00:00Z
  • Hands down the best place to stay in the area. Great place to rest, recover, and feel at home. Perfect jump off point for seeing any sites! Stay here!

    Brent2017-08-22T00:00:00Z
  • Manjula and his family were lovely to stay with. They were extremely generous and warm; they offered me delicious Sri Lankan snacks during the day if I was at home and they served the best Sri Lankan breakfast I had during my entire time in Sri Lanka. Majula is well-connected in the Anuradhapura tourism industry; he recommended a great tuktuk driver that picked me up from the bus station and took me on tours of Mihintale and the Anuradhapura ruins. The tuktuk driver was friendly, an excellent tour guide during the Mihintale and Anuradhapura tours, and always tried to help me get the best deal on food and coconuts with the local vendors; I never felt like he was trying to rip me off or take advantage of me (which is what most tuktuk drivers in Sri Lanka seem to try to do with foreigners). I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at Majula's home and would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a comfortable, welcoming place to stay in Anuradhapura.

    Eilean2017-10-01T00:00:00Z
  • Firstly, Manjula is such a nice man! Very knowledgable, super friendly, relaxed and highly generous, basically the best person to introduce you to Sri Lanka! I stayed in his single room which was clean, had a fan and the bed was comfy. The toilet and washing facilities were outside (open air shower and a proper toilet in wood shed) and brand new so very clean, and I found it actually very refreshing to use. I was fortunate enough to taste Manjula's dinner one night and it was incredible, it was vegetarian and many of the ingredients grew in sight of his house. Breakfast was equally local and delicious. If you are looking to visit the ancient and wondrous Anuradhapura I would highly recommend staying with the genuine and lovely Manjula!

    Nathan2017-03-20T00:00:00Z
  • Manjula is such a great host! He is so knowledgeable, I now know so much more about both buddhist and Sri Lankan culture and customs than if I hadn't stayed​ with him and his dear family. He was also very helpful, gave me travel advice and both picked me up and dropped me off free of charge. The room has a comfortable bed and a fan, and as mentioned in another review, the tile and washing facilities are outside with an open air shower with I loved and only added to the value. I'm so happy I stayed with Manjula and his family who was so warm and genuine, and I highly recommend you to do so to.

    Jenny2017-04-08T00:00:00Z
  • This place is tucked away just off a main road so the location is great. It is the most tastefully presented home I have seen in Sri Lanka. There is greenery around and you hear bird calls and squirrels. Rona is sure to make you welcome and see that you are comfortable. I hired a bike off them and found riding around easy in the trafic and a delight around the archelogical site. The map Manjula provided me with and tips were of for more use than anything from the ticket office. This place is a real winner.

    Jenny2017-10-19T00:00:00Z
  • We stayed at Manjula's place for one night and it was amazing! The room was small but very nice and clean. The bathroom is outside but we liked it very much that way. The best thing was Manjulas hospitality and breakfast. He is very easy to talk to and can tell you just about anything you ask. We had a great time there. Žiga and Patricija

Shelton cooked us very very good meals, he helped us plan our stay in Anuradhapura and rent us bikes wich were useful. He has 2 very kinds dogs and it was a real pleasure for us. We just regretted not having electrical outlet in our room but otherwise everything was perfect. We recommand this place without hesitation of course!

  • SheltonHe is a very passionate and humorous person. When we got out of the car will shake hands and embrace, and also provides accommodation for driver. The house was very big, and there are still some in the decoration. We lived in the room should be considered the best. Although there is no air conditioning but fan enough. The WiFi signal of the room is very good. The key is the dinner, is so rich. After dinner, we and the owner and his neighbors started to play a game, is the local snooker. We play games in the process, the dog was lying beside us. The owner also said we Chinese. The house is close to the supermarket, walk along a road to. The geographical position is also very good. In short, this is a very good experience, strongly recommended occupancy, owners enthusiasm is always surrounds you.~。~

  • Wow Shelton, thank you so much for such a lovely stay. We booked for a couple of nights and ended up staying a week. The whole time Shelton treated us like one of his family and gave us so much help while we where there. He was great organising and suggesting things to do or see and was great company during our stay. He was a great cook and made us lovely dinners and for the breakfast he changed it a couple of times to give us lovely traditional Sri Lankan food. He was such a lovely man that I hope people will read this and stay with him for your time in Anurhadapura I know you will be so pleased you did.

  • From the moment we arrived we felt the warmth of Shelton and his family. He's a true gentleman, a positive and was such a lovely host to us. He was very knowledgeable to talk to and gave us great ideas for area. Also arranging the free pick-up and drop off from bus station by local tuk tuk driver was really appreciated. We enjoyed sharing in his love of wildlife and the feeding of the birds. Charm Inn is a real quiet sanctuary. Highly recommended.

  • We had a great time at Shelton´s place. He is a very nice and available host. He took the time to explain us everything we wanted to know and more. The terrace is a lovely place where we had an excellent dinner and the chance to play karrom with him. We slept well in a basic but comfortable and spacious room. Shelton has bikes to rent to visit Anuradhapura which is really convenient! The guesthouse is well located. Thank you again Shelton!

The bed was so comfy! We wish we could have stayed longer. We would HIGHLY recommend this lovely house and host to anyone visiting Anuradhapura, or even to make a detour especially to stay here and visit the charming Ancient City. This is by far the best place we stayed in Sri Lanka.

They arranged bikes for us to explore The old city, the transportation to Wilpattu national park, the jeep there and transport to Trincomalee (our next destination). Rooms were very clean, good airco, very nice balcony and bathroom. Food was excellent (breakfast and dinner) as well!!

    Christophe2017-10-01T00:00:00Z
  • True to its name, this charming guesthouse is situated in a quiet neighborhood and only 10 minutes walking from the old bus station and a host of restaurants and shops. Suman and his family do everything possible to make you comfortable and he is a wealth of knowledge when it comes to touring the area and can recommend safe and reliable tuk tuk drivers. The room was definitely worth the price and while dinner may be considered expensive by local standards, spend the extra money for some genuine home cooking. Kick back and relax here and enjoy the view from your balcony.

    Christopher2016-12-26T00:00:00Z
  • This was our favourite place in Sri Lanka. The welcome was warm, the accommodation comfortable and the food outstanding. This place is situated in a quiet and friendly neighbourhood and it offered a lovely place to relax at the end of a hot day sightseeing. The home cooked food was some of the best we have had in Sri Lanka and our host kindly gave me a demonstration. I wish we could have stayed longer just to eat more of the food. The hot showers and pleasant garden were also a real bonus to this already lovely place. Thank you so much for a wonderful stay.

  • We had a lovely experience at LittleParadise. Suman responded to my emails immediately, organised transport from the airport to LittleParadise, organised the tours we wanted to go on as well as transport in Anuradphura. The food was extraordinaire- the home cooked meal was better than anything Ive had in a restaurant here. LittleParadise also put us in contact with Rimoto & Lalek (apologies for the spelling) who drove us to Dambulla and Sigiriya. Their service was so good we asked them to drive us to Arugam as well. We were not disappointed as the drive - more than five hours in some interesting traffic - was safe and enjoyable. The rooms were clean, well kept and airconditioned. Recommend LittleParadise and the brother-drive team of Rimoto and Lalek, highly.
