The Sanctuary, Tissawewa, Anuradhapura

This historic colonial hotel built originally around 1865 was a former Governors House. The hotel was formerly known as Tissa Wewa Resthouse. It still retains that colonial British charm with highly polished wooden floors, high ceilings but with modern amenities such as updated bathrooms, TVs and AC. The rooms on the first floor are more private with a beautiful verandah overlooking the fabulous gardens which extend to 14 acres. Please note the hotel does not have a liquor license as it is within the bounds of the ancient city of Anuradhapura.
