There were 2 chairs and a table outside to sit and enjoy the scenery. We enjoyed breakfast and dinner both days that we stayed. Breakfast was very good with a mix and western and Sri Lankan foods and fresh fruit. The dinners, which we chose off of a menu, were outstanding! Wimal's wife is a talented cook and her skill shines through her dishes. We had curry both evenings but each night was completely different dishes. We were also treated to wood apple juice upon returning from our day of adventures. The attention to detail and Wimal's lovely family made this a great choice!
9.5 Excellent
Pros: The owner (Wimal) and the entire family is very friendly and kind. Wimal organized a lot of trips for us in Mihntale and Anuradhapura where he explained all the details you need to know.

The hole stay was very good and we would love to come back.

His welcome was very warm and make us feeling very well after the bus trip from Jaffna: the fresh juice, the refreshing towel and a little rest in his garden before to checkin, were helping us to recover. The rooms are large, clean and fully equipped. Air conditioning is working and silent, Wifi is reliable and coverage is ensured the rooms. We had dinner there, prepared by them and it was excellent! So much variety of vegetables and tastes! Same for the breakfast the morning after: a rich mix of english and sri lankian tradition. So good! Wimal arranged for us a transoport to Anuradapura bus station. If you plan to stop in Mihintale (for visiting the archeological park, but as well as more confidential alternative base for visiting Anuradapura) stop at the Rich Resort.

The Sri Lankan food was superb, both breakfast and dinner. The owners go above and beyond. They arranged a tuk tuk driver for 4 hours tour of the ancient city. It was Buddhist New Year whilst we were visiting and the owners arranged a traditional breakfast for all guests, which was a lovely experience. We were even taken to night time temples because there were no tuk tuks available. We would thoroughly recommend this small guest house to anyone wanting a friendly, authentic experience of Sri lanka.

9.5 Excellent
Pros: The pool is obviously the eyecatcher of this hotel. It is big, clean and well-maintained. The staff is very friendly and thoughtful with for example planning day trips. The food at the hotel is freshly prepared and very tasteful. You have to order your dinner a few hours in advance so the chefs make sure you get the freshest ingredients. The cabana was clean and the beds are comfortable. The staff is extremely considerate. The power went out for a very short time during day-time which was no problem at all, but still the staff made sure their guests were comfortable. The problem was fixed in no-time. We would definitely recommend Saliya Garden if you’re looking for a quiet relaxing place from which you can easily visit all the sights in and around Anuradaphura. The pool is a great relief after a full day of temple visits.
Cons: -

Pros: The staff is very friendly, speak English always offering their help to you regarding all issues, such as excursions and places of interest. The bed was very comfortable.

They made a great surprise for my girlfriend, who celebrated her birthday, and the room was decorated.
Cons: Journey to the city center with TUKTUK costs about 300 LKR. There were some ants in the room.

8.0 Excellent
Pros: Nice property, we had a great balcony and the staff was nice.
Cons: When we had to pay they actually asked US how much it would cost according to booking.com. It took really long and we had to pay cash. That was a little strange.
8.8 Excellent
Pros: Lovely, small garden. Nice area, very quiet. Nice & spacious rooms. PLUS: it’s also a restaurant, actually the best in Anuradhapura - just one dish, no menu - rice & curry - homemade & delicious. Would stay there again.

10.0 Excellent
Pros: The most incredible hospitality- and the owners really looked out for me making sure I wouldn’t get ripped off paying tourists prices. The owner even drove me to the bus station and waited with me for the bus to Colombo airport. Just the nicest !! The owners genuinely want their guests to have a pleasant comfortable stay. Very reasonable priced.
8.0 Excellent
Pros: Delicious food. Lovely garden and balcony. Staff arranged tuk tuk rides with perfect driver.
Cons: Meal times are limited. Door had large gap along the jamb and had to cover with a towel. Strong smell of mothballs.
5.5 Okay
Pros: I booked this based on the reviews which stated how helpful and friendly the people running it were but I did not really experience that. To be honest it was the worse place I stayed in for the whole trip. It is not that they were unfriendly but not particularly helpful. It is well over priced for what you get and the tuk tuk driver they have (yellow tuk tuk) was massively over priced, did not give much information and was not particularly helpful.

7.0 Good
Pros: The place was pretty and the staff really nice and very helpfull.
Cons: The main issue was the lack of air conditioning, I slept very poorly both nights I stayed because the room was so hot. For similar and even lower prices I got AC in other places in Sri Lanka. The location was ok, but a bit out of town and the restaurant was not functioning. Breakfast was also ok but nothing special.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The staff was very friendly. Did a tour to the old city with one of the staff and that wad very relaxed. Calm and relaxed location, good for Reading a book etc.
Cons: Not really anything. Facilities were as discriped on booking.
7.5 Good
Pros: The staff were very helpful and quickly organised bikes for us to cycle the old city. The Sri Lankan food was delicious!
Cons: The food was slightly more expensive than places we ate in town but for ease we thought it was fine.
7.5 Good
Pros: Maya and the team are very nice and helpful. The room was fine. I came off season so there were not too many people.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: It’s a beautiful English colonial house with very high ceilings, plenty of free space and a very friendly and knowledgeable manager .
Cons: Everything is fine !
7.5 Good
Pros: The rooms are quite comfortable, no air con but many fans in the room and high ceilings so temperature is ok. Breakfast was good - standard continental breakfast of toast and fruits is free, and I paid 400 rupee for the Sri lankan breakfast which was really good. The staff are really friendly and knowledgeable. The place is really clean and it is a beautiful house. The showers are the best I've had in Sri Lanka. Not super close to the city but easy to catch buses and tuk tuk anywhere
Cons: The rooms are very expensive. If you book the cheaper room (8usd per night) turns out these are outdoor beds although this is not mentioned on the website at all. So you end up forced into paying 10usd per night. Then they charge you for everything - towel hire,water refills are the same price as a new bottle of water. I just think it's a bit expensive for what you get
9.3 Excellent
Pros: Maya was very resourceful when I arrived, the building, thou old, is also very well decorated and has its own charm
Cons: Breakfast could be better

10.0 Excellent
Pros: The whole Big Game Camp experience was amazing. The grounds were truly spectacular to walk around and explore. The sleeping accommodations were comfortable, especially considering the camping aspect of things. It's a really happy medium between actual camping and staying at a nice hotel...you get feelings of both. The food was good, and the dining experience (eating under the stars around a fire) was exceptional. Definitely book a safari. I thought Safaris like this only existed in Africa and I was blown away. Our safari guide was so passionate and knowledgeable about all aspects of the wildlife. We saw everything there was to see...Leopards, sloth bears, elephants, etc. Our guide was able to find animals when other surrounding guides could not. Truly an amazing experience. I HIGHLY recommend staying at Big Game Camp.
Cons: I have nothing bad to say. The stay was a delight.

10.0 Excellent
Pros: Our 1 night stay plus half day safari was one of the best things we've ever done! We were collected from the bus stop and from the moment we arrived we were treated so well by all the staff who were incredibly attentive and informative. Sameera, the camps Senior Naturalist came along with us on our safari, and it would not have been the same without him. We could tell he was extremely passionate and loved his job. He gave us so much information and was happy to answer any questions we had. In the end, we managed to see Elephants, Sloth Bears, Leopards and many more beautiful animals. It's definitely worth the money to do your safari with a naturalist!! Everything else was amazing, a beautiful and clean tent. Amazing BBQ dinner around a firepit, it was such a lovely setting. The next morning we had breakfast which was delicious! They are really doing fantastic work here, being the first carbon neutral camp in Sri Lanka, and it's obvious all the staff really care about our planet!
Cons: Nothing, what a wonderful experience!!

Cons: Perhaps the dinner options could be a bit more varied. I would have liked Sri Lankan cuisine, but the barbecue was very tasty.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Staying at the Big Game Camp was certainly a highlight of Sri Lanka. The safari was brilliant and we were given a naturalist free of charge. All the staff are so nice and helpful. The dinner was amazing in front of the fire and the food tasted so good!
Cons: The only negative was that the drinks we had with dinner, because they were alcoholic was an extra charge. Which we weren’t told about this until we had to pay extra on check out. Not a big issue but would’ve been nice to know.
8.3 Excellent

5.5 Okay
Cons: Very noisy hotel I would not go back
7.5 Good
Pros: Clean and modern. Good aircon. Lovely views.
Cons: Staff were not helpful. Other reviews of this place don't seem to add up to the experience we had with staff. V limited English so maybe just a language barrier but no help with answering questions about visiting the ancient city. Luckily we met a tuk tuk driver at the station who gave us his number to contact about getting around, as when we asked the staff at the hotel they were completely unable to give us any advice about how we should get around - no offer of hiring bikes like other reviews said, even when we asked. Breakfast was poor, cold toast, a plain omlette and fruit, no offer of sri lankan breakfast. Whilst we ate breakfast the chef kept coming out of the kitchen to serve food and was sneezing/coughing constantly which doesn't make you want to eat their breakfast!

6.3 Good
Pros: The room was really nice and modern, all the hotel really. The bathroom was nice and clean and the bed was comfortable. The entire hotel is nice, modern, nice common spaces, small but gorgeous pool...
Cons: Location wasn't great and nobody knows the place, so no tuktuk driver will take you unless you have google maps. The staff was terrible. They have a place with a lot of potential but nobody speaks a word of English, so basic things like asking for laundry or even breakfast are really complicated. They're slow and not too competent. I've been in Sri Lanka for a while now, I know what to expect and I don't ask for western standarts. But they are incompetent up to Sri Lankan standarts, they'll ruin a really nice place that must have cost a fortune and has a ton of potential.
