It is a nice and quiet modern hotel with good facilities. The room was clean and tidy, with a comfortable bed and pillows. There is a fridge in the room and and tea making facilities in the lounge area outside the room. We were given two small bottles of water on arrival. The shower works well with good hot water, once you get it adjusted properly. There is a shower screen too, but like all bathrooms in Sri Lanka the bathroom floor still gets wet. The air conditioner works well and the room also has a large ceiling fan. The hotel is well located just 1.6 kilometers from Jaffna Fort and about a kilometre from the rooftop bar at the Jaffna Jetwing Hotel. Breakfast was not included but is available, we did not have breakfast at the hotel. All in all a good place to stay.

    Jaffna is a fascinating space in terms of its history and also natural surroundings with its large water bodies and bird life. On this visit (and I have come many times before) we walked around the Catholic and the Jesuit seminary. But there are also the old missionary schools, the Hindu temples, the star fort, the causeways to Kayts and Karainaga.

    Jaffna is highly recommendable if you like to see Sri Lanka in a less mainstream tourist way. There is a lot to see, very interesting history and lots of cultural and religious highlights. Go to Nagadeepa and Delft Islabd as well for a day.

    Jaffna has always been a lovely place to visit.

    Jaffna has always been a lovely place to visit. This time we went to Kayts and saw what was left of the old Fort as well as Hammond Hiel across the water. Went to Point Pedro as well...It was a pity that there was a postbox at the northern most point of Sri Lanka - but no postcards or stamps!!! Seeing flamingos and other migrants across from the causeway to Kayts was a bonus. Food is always great and we would recommend Lavin's for some excellent parathas and paper dosai.

    Jaffna was not as I expected .

    Jaffna was not as I expected . Staying where I did you really needed your own transportation. I tried unsuccessfully to rent a bike ,and was told by Click hire place they were booked out for a few days ,I wondered about this as I hardly saw any other tourists ,and other companies didn’t return calls . Fort was really disappointing compared to Galle ,and they charge admission ! Restaurants recommended by lonely planet good , but Mangos has closed ,the Malaya is very good ,as is Akshatai ,but avoid Green Grass ,it’s horrible ,I couldn’t imagine staying there ! Rio Icecream is really good .

    Very different to Colombo and other suburbs, but Jaffna has its own unique vibe. Pretty laid back I would say. The locals are friendly, but communicating with them could be a little challenging unless you spoke Tamil. Plenty of things to see and many different foods to try.

    Its a quiet village with less population.

    Its a quiet village with less population. Nice for a quiet getaway. Small and cosy town. Food is good and friendly people. Temples are good to visit too. The trip to Nainativu is unsafe. Boats were overloaded and I was afraid of a stampede because of the crowd. Other than that, everything else was a good experience for me.

    My partner and I recently stayed at Jaffna North Gate Hotel during our trip to Jaffna. We found the hotel to be a good option for those looking for accommodation in the area. The hotel's restaurant was definitely the highlight of our stay, with a great selection of delicious dishes at affordable prices. The breakfast buffet was also fantastic, offering a variety of options that were both tasty and satisfying. Moreover, the restaurant staff were lovely, friendly, and always willing to assist us in any way they could.

    Hotel room and bathroom were really clean and a great size too. Clean towels and water bottles were provided in the room. Cute garden with fairy lights in the night creates a really nice atmosphere! Host was attentive, friendly and accommodating. Will definitely stay here again when coming back to Jaffna.
