My wife & I stayed at Dhayanithi a family run private guest house in Maruthanamadam which is strategically placed between the famous Keerimalai & Jaffna town. It’s one of the best guest houses we stayed in Sri Lanka. The house is set in a beautifully manicured garden plot with banana shrubs & away from the main road. This upstairs contemporary house is amazing, clean & spacious. It has five large bedrooms each with modern en-suits shower rooms/ bathrooms and are furnished stylishly. Some of the rooms have balconies with great garden views. There is free Wi-Fi provided within the price which is $25.00 per room. The breakfast is included in the price and you can request your favourite traditional Sri Lankan or western food. For small additional fee you can also have lunch or dinner. The guest house Manager, Chef & care takers are very friendly & pleasant. The attached photos speaks more about this place. We will certainly revisit Dhayanithi when we visit North again.

Stayed at this quiet and lovely Dayanithi Guest House or I would say another home for 5 nights. Ranee with the help of Kandiah took care of our stay which was comfortable together with their varied daily breakfast. Lunch and dinner are provided upon request - again, we had dinner on a couple of occasions and they were really enjoyable. The rooms are well furnished with air-conditioning and ceiling fan. They maintain a lovely garden,, with banana plantations and trees - providing a relaxing place to sit around. The hot-water shower needs "tuning" about which I mentioned to the kind owner, Mahen. We shall plan our next holiday in Jaffna with Dyanithi Guest House in mind. M. Ruthra-Rajan

Jaffna is not your tourist- centred city, it's recovering from a brutal 40 year civil war. That said, there are signs that the city is gradually moving forward with new bridges being built on the roads leading to the city and the first escalator there. Jaffna, although quite small is a bit manic. The Dayanithi is located about 10 minutes by motor vehicle from the city centre. It's not a bad place to be. There's still some shops and temples nearby and men riding bicycles whilst carrying huge bunches of bananas. The guest house is about 50 metres down an unsealed road, it looks elegant. Inside it's open and airy. Our room is a good size with a fairly comfy bed, air con, TV and en-suite. We couldn't get the hot water to work but it didn't matter. There is an owner who speaks good English and lovely staff who have only a few words of English. The breakfast is good; eggs, toast, string hoppers, jam, fruit and tea or coffee. A fish curry for dinner was excellent. The room's not serviced but that didn't matter. There are some noisy dogs nearby and a chiming clock in a temple that sounds too early. We spent 3 nights there and when ever we returned after a day out, it felt a bit like coming home. That's a good thing.

With more and more visitors heading up to Jaffna, the hotel prices aren't exactly cheap. Our family went looking for value-conscious options and stumbled upon Dayanithi. The guest house was quaint, clean, and had some lovely features between the garden and the balcony (though there isn't a whole lot to look out over). However, what really hit home was the incredible hospitality of Ravi who was always ready to jump at any opportunity to help us with suggestions and tips on how to make the most of our stay whilst also preparing delicious breakfasts for us to kickstart our mornings. The sense of homeliness of our hosts who essentially treated us as if we were visitors to their home (which, I guess, we essentially were) added a remarkable amount of lustre and comfort to our trip.
