The Ashok Hotel lies in the lush green of Anuradhapura just inmidst of nature’s tranquility interrupted by the chirping birds. If you want to get a glimpse of an authentic Sri Lankan hotel how it has been over decades you are absolutely right here as we would call it a Sri Lankan vintage style hotel.
The hotel comprises 20 rooms (10 double rooms, 10 triple rooms) in a white colored building with romantic window frames. You will meet more locals here and you will have the chance to get closer to the Sri Lankan culture than in hotels aiming mainly tourists from abroad. The rooms are equipped with TV, fan and A/C, mosquito net and Wi-Fi free of charge. The rooms are kept very clean with nice wooden furniture and some colonial accessories. Most of the rooms have their own balcony. Some have a nice view over the Nuwarawewa lake.
They will arrange transfers to the sights in and around Anuradhapura at reasonable rates. You can choose between Sri Lankan or western breakfast and you should try their authentic Sri Lankan dinner buffet for 660 LKR. The breakfast for 550 LKR is also quite reasonable.
