The Habarana Rest House is known to many travelers the world over. During the British colonial days it was probably in its prime time. However with years of neglect it started sliding downhill. In its new life as Heritance Habarana it has adopted a new face or more like makeup on the old face. To begin with, the rooms here...

This hotel has two name: heritage habarana and rest house habarana. You will see why: if you want to sleep and rest, don't go in this place! It is a nightmare.

We hired a self drive van from Colombo and drove up north, we stopped and booked into the Habarana rest house situated at the edge of the town by the roundabout on the Trincomalee road.

We've visited a number of Rest Houses in Sri Lanka. This one is very well located for Polonnaruwa, Anuradhapura and Kandy and the standard of hospitality and service was typically high. However the quality of the accommodation lets it down. Our room was large but had nothing else in its favour: it was dingy and unkempt throughout; the bathroom had...
