We spent three night at North Gate, and would happily have stayed far longer. The location - across the road from the station - is very handy, while also being close to other major attractions. Our room was comfortable, spacious and well appointed, and the outside pool was lovely. We had both breakfast and dinner at the hotel, and the food was great too, and not just "good for a hotel meal" good. By far the highlight though were the staff, who were, without exception, friendly and helpful. They struck a perfect balance between professional and personable, such that we were delighted to arrive, happy to be there and sorry to have to leave.

If I’m to be honest I got a room with the best possible rate, including breakfast at their sister property “Valampuri”. Superb breakfast, delicious food, lots and lots of varieties, mostly south & north Indian foods, at the same time western items also available. Swimming pool was big and enough room for all to swim. Only issue was the railway station is next to the hotel, so you always hear the train movements. I won’t say the rooms are luxury, but I just compared to the price I paid. The ladies at the reception are super awesome, the management should take a note that they are assert to your company. One of the lady is pregnant, and still she handles the reservation very efficiently. Happy that I stayed here!

Don't eat inside at the front area - ask to go through to the back to the traditional part of the building. Tables undercover around the central open roof. Plenty of vegetarian options. Looking around it seemed that BYO alcohol was accepted. Particularly good breads from the big oven.

The long drive north was definitely worth it and gratifying to see that Jaffna is slowly rebuilding itself. The hotel is in a tall building in the centre of town nextdoor to a Cargill's supermarket, with a very discreet entrance. Our room was simply but stylishly furnished, although there was a distinct lack of chairs (just two low stools) and only one bedside table. If I had been on a business trip, I would have missed having a desk or table and chair. Similarly our (very small) balcony had no furniture at all, although we had a splendid view from our sixth floor room. The best part of the hotel for us was the lovely, breezy roof terrace bar where you could enjoy a 'happy hour' beer in the early evening. The restaurant food was generally excellent.

Very pleasant stay. When we arrived we were showed the room we actually had booked, but was also offered a bigger room that was available for the same price. We chose the bigger room with 2 bathrooms. Everything was nice and clean and the aircondition worked perfectly. The WiFi didn’t work in the room, but when we drew attention to it, 4 guys was immediately put on the case to fix it. In the meantime we got the password to the hotels staffs WiFi, which was nice. The breakfast was traditional Sri Lankan and really nice. We did miss some better mosquito net in the room, but all in all the staff was very helpful, nice breakfast and clean rooms.

I selected to stay at Tilko based on my previous experience. The food that they served on full board basis for the price we payed was well below par. There was no selection in the buffet. We there there for 3 days and 2 nights was was traveling with my wife and son. On the first day although it was stated that the food was going to be on buffet, the lunch was Alacart. There were no options at the buffet for breakfast almost forcing us to eat what was there. The most disappointing of all is that, upon returning to the room after having dropped my wife at the public library for an exams, discovering that her money which was kept in her wallet amounting to LKR 15,000.00 being missing. It was apparent that the luggage that we have left in the room had been rearranged by those who had done the house keeping. It was quite certain that the money would have been taken by those who had come to clean the room, as my wife checked on the money and checked with me if it would be safe to leave wallet in the room as she was going for an exam. It was due to my reassurance and my wrongful assumption that it would be safe that the Wallet was left in luggage. This was due to the fact that there was no locker in the room. What was interesting was the response we got from the Hotel Management that something like this had never happened, but wanted time ton”investigate” into the loss of the money. The following morning the hotel resident manager spoke to me with a prepared speech about how the evidence lead to the fact that none of their staff had taken the money. It is only at that point I pointed out that their cockiness of their conclusion was absurd as the balcony sliding door of our room was not lockable. It was a pathetic experience to note that they would not assume responsibility for their lapses of safety for the belongings of their guests. Also upon inquiry later on, we learnt that we were not the only ones to have gone through this unfair experience and that there had been many similar incidents before where guest have lost their money and belonging. My family was disturbed of their holiday due to this distasteful experience and no consolation was offered nor any responsibility assumed. I would not recommend this hotel to any one based on the cynical attitude of the management and their failure to provide safety both to their guests and their belongings. Or by the way, this is not a fake review and I have left my email address to speak to anyone who wants to verify any information.

Hotel was wonderful with very helpful staff. Breakfast was great and a had a wide spread of traditional local cuisine. Loved the passion fruit juice. Well maintained pool, which was great to dip in after an exhausting day in the hot weather. Met the owner, who was very friendly. Had a conversation with him and he clearly explained to me the concept of the hotel. Great concept of a boutique hotel, where the guests are taken care of individually.

TripAdvisor didn’t exaggerate on this one! All the glowing reviews about D’Villa are real. We spent one week “at home” in Jaffna. Dilan showed us Sri Lankan hospitality at its finest - from clean rooms and living area to arranging tuk tuks for us to go about Jaffna to recommending different restaurants and activities. Couple things: breakfast at D’Villa is five stars. My 9 year old wanted me to make sure we mention that in our review. Every morning we had a different traditional Jaffna breakfast - the vadais, idli, dosas and curries were tasty and satisfying. The fresh fruit each morning was lovely. On the day we left early so we could catch the ferry to Delft, we had breakfast boxes with delicious sandwiches, sausage and yogurt. For other normadic mothers traveling with kids I need to say the following: the bathroom while being a wet bathroom (no glass shower partitions) was really well done and so if you like myself worry about looking at a dirty floor it does not happen here. Laundry can be done here and it is super reasonable. There is a desk in the bedroom and the living area has a table large enough should you need it for any schooling. Thank you Dilan for an awesome stay! We will be back. We wish you and yours all the best in all your endeavors.

The property is a beautiful ancestral home renovated and refurbished as a boutique hotel. One of the only places in Jaffna where you can get an authentic experience of true Jaffna culture and heritage. Tastefully and elegantly furnished with very comfortable rooms with all required amenities. Staff is extremely helpful and able to accommodate most requests. Food also was arranged for us when asked and was very tasty and flavorsome. A truly relaxing and peaceful stay at Thambu Illam made it a holiday to remember and we will definitely recommend it to anyone else who travels to Jaffna. Also must mention that the location is ideal and close to the center of the city and most sight seeing places such as Jaffna Fort and Nallur Kovil are very close by which made traveling very convenient.

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.

On arriving at Thr Fox Hotel we where warmly greeted after a long train journey from Anuradhapura , with chilled fruit drink & refreshing towels. The Hotel & garden are immaculate & tranquil, a total contrast to the City outside the entrance to the Hotel. All the staff , from security at the entrance , cleaners,reception staff, gardeners & restaurant staff where so polite & very professional. The Restaurant Manager was so helpful & caring . He was considerate in making sure the food was nut free due to my severe allergy. The garden was so beautiful; the gardeners dedication to every detail to maintain a peaceful beautiful surroundings, made our stay very special. The swimming pool was so wellcome & the calmness of the surroundings allowed us to relax from the beginning of our stay.Thank you to all the staff at The Fox.
