Tidy rooms and clean. This motel does what it needs to do and nothing more. Bathroom was also tidy and clean with no complaints. Air conditioner worked well. Ate in the restaurant for lunch and had no complaints either. WIFI only downstairs in the lobby but worked ok.

I stayed here in late 2014 on a intrepid tour. I became very ill and could not continue the tour as required the next day. the hotel staff allowed me to stay in the room as long as I needed and then provided a complimentary breakfast (not expected or required) which the hotel manager sat and chatted with me while...

We booked this hotel as a last resort option. There were no other places available at that time. The price was a little above par considering the place. The rooms were good and new, how ever very close to each other resembling hostel rooms. The restaurant was average, but the food was certainly below par.... with meagre quantities just enough...

Located right next to the heritage sites and the great Parakrama Samudra lake (all within walking distance). I stayed there one night taking my parents on a road trip. They gave us a basic but clean and spacious room. We ate out most of the time but the hotel has a restaurant too, which seemed to be having a lot...

I didn't actually stay here but while sightseeing in Polonnaruwa we stopped here for lunch. They had a nice buffet which was very reasonable priced. We had soup, salad, a hearty meal and nice dessert which in my money (£ sterling) only cost about £5.00. I'd never get all this at home. Quite a few of the surrounding eating places...

This was really poor value for money, although the actual accommodation was acceptable I would strongly advise you try the nearby neighbour Lake house. This was totally over priced and the whole area is surrounded by small flies.

This is a nice friendly clean hotel. The manager and the staff was very accommodating and helpful. Shower needs attention if not the room was comfy enough. Food was good too. Considering the fact that we didn't have a pre booking the manager was very helpful to find us a room.

This hotel is in a great location for visiting the ruins of Polonnaruwa. It is right near the bus stop if you are coming by public transport. Rooms are nice and the pool is welcome on hot days. We were leaving very early and were given a breakfast option with the people accepting it expecting little more than coffee and...

The Siyanco is situated in a garden setting just off the main road, but well located to both the town centre and the local sights. The pool is very nice, and the restaurant good. Service was acceptable. My room was small, but adequate. The bathroom was unusual and not particularly functional. The shower curtains occupied over 50% of the bathroom...
