Falsely advertised as a 3-star property. Did not stay at the property after inspecting the room.

Good hotel. Expedia was the problem
I would recommend the hotel for the friendly staff and good rooms, however upon checking out they informed me the price I had already paid through Expedia was in Indian rupes instead of Sri Lankan rupee and I had to fork over double the amount of the advertised price- not happy.

Nice guesthouse in Anuradhapura
My wife, little son and I stayed for one night at the Rajarata Lodge. The staff was really kind and attentive. Our room was clean and comfortable and the breakfast was great (especially due to the great view from the breakfast area). However I want to mention, that we also had troubles during the check-in. As mentioned in some other reviews there are problems in the communication between Expedia and the hotel. As we arrived at the hotel no room was available in the beginning (even the room was prepaided). After some discussions we received a room and in the end everything went well for us.

Ruhig und trotzdem in Stadtnähe
Schönes kleines Haus mit wenigen Zimmern. Zimmer scheinen neu gemacht worden zu sein. Schön eingerichtet. Dusche zwischen Waschbecken und WC ist etwas unpraktisch, aber ok. Die Terrasse ist toll mit Ausblick auf die Reisfelder. Frühstück war sehr gut. Gegen Gebühr haben wir Fahrräder ausborgen können und damit Anuradhapura erkundschaftet. Einziges Manko: Bettwäsche hatte Flecken - das haben wir aber öfter erlebt in Sri Lanka, WLAN sehr schlecht (war aber angeblich nur so, weil Monatsende war ;-))
