Lonely Planet review
Ignore the jazzy website, the 15 rooms are modestly equipped; the pretty lakeside location is somewhat isolated.
Our independent authors have visited Boa Vista and selected this as one of our recommended guesthouses in Anuradhapura.
Description provided by property
We are in the Ancient City of Srilanka, right on Tissawewa Lake. We have air-conditioning and hot water in some rooms and other rooms are without.
Price range is suitable for budget travellers and those who wish to spend a little more.
All our rooms have a great view of lake and a private balcony.
We are 750 metres away from the Srimaha Bodi Tree, 300m. from the ruins, right across from the Royal Pleasure Gardens and Lovers Rock.
We also away from the traffic, therefore providing a very peaceful and quiet environment. For those who like to walk or run there is a great track along the bund, ideal for bird watchers. We are also exceptionally clean and pride ourselves on our high standard of customer care. Both western and eastern meals are served to our guests by friendly staff in our resturant which is on the second floor overlooking the lake.
The Guesthouse is run by a Portugese-Canadian and Srilankan couple. So if you decide to visit, you will be able to relax and enjoy the peace and quiet of a beautiful, serene Guesthouse set in fabulous surroundings.
We can provide transportation from the bus, and train station. Airport pickups can also be arranged.
Medical facilities/ Doctor also available.
