We stayed four nights here, using it as a jumping off point for various sites. The room was very nice. Big and spacey with a high ceiling and decent bathroom, the bed was big and comfortable and we had a terrace with tables and chairs to sit out. The first night we chose to eat in the hotel as we were a little way from the crossroads (Habarana town is really just a crossroads). The food was very good, rice and curry with a choice of vegetable curries and chicken. The dining area is very basic but clean and tidy. The second night we opted to eat in again and this time we were disappointed, the meal was basic and bland, and we chose to eat in town for our remaining two nights. This hotel has all the basics in place but somehow leaves a feeling that the owners are scrimping to save costs. The caretaker was very attentive and always on hand.

Spent one night here. Nice room with AC, very quiet. Wifi was hit and miss. Food was poor to average. Caretaker was pleasant. Hired a driver from here (Sarat(sp?)) for three days and he was excellent as a guide to the area and on wildlife - we would recommend him to others staying here. Great location for exploring the local area/cultural triangle (Sigiriya, Ritagala, Polonnaruwa)
The nearby Safari (Eco) was ok but don't be bullied into it if you're planning to go to some of the more famous safaris.

Room was big and nice, charm, helpful staff. care taker was smart in advice... close to all nearby historical sites available.Excellent value for money. Considering it was off the main road it was set back and was surprisingly quiet.

Room Tip: Good for Money

Watch your head as you enter the bathroom! There is a step down from the bedroom into the bathroom and the door frame is low. Rooms are basic but spacious and clean. There is an air conditioner and an overhead fan. There is no hanging space but clothes can be draped over a rack.
Breakfast provided. Certainly a central location.

Spent two nights here. Splendid location and ambience. Fruits are served fresh from the garden. We opted for vegetarian dinner and the food was excellent. Friendly and helpful housekeepers.
Strongly recommended if you want to visit Habarana.
