    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.

    Takes two days to travel around all the attractions, first day travel the east from Jaffna town with a rented vehicle which is much cheaper than the other areas. Other day travel nagadeepa and close by locations to Jaffna city. It was a nice experience around there for the everyone, but must pre plan everything.

    Nagadeepa temple and Nagamma kovil was most attracted places to visit in Jaffana along with Jaffna Fort and Library and Museum. Although the Road to Nagadeepa has to be repaired . The City and Roads are clean and the people are very kind

    I loved the local life feel of Jaffna.

    I loved the local life feel of Jaffna. People are not dependent on tourists here and it was a good insight into the rhythms of Sri Lankan everyday life. The food is delicious and well spiced. Try the dosa's for dinner and pitthu for brekfast. The beaches along the north coast (KKS, Point Pedro) are not worth the fuss, however we did not have time to see any of the beach life on the islands so you may be rewarded there.

    The hotel is very new (only a few months I think) and there weren't many (or any?) other guests when I stayed, so it was very quiet. The staff were very friendly and accommodating, the food was tasty and the kitchen was open whenever I wanted to eat or drink something. The location was amazing, I was walking everywhere in town from there and it is very convenient for both the bus station and the train station. Would absolutely stay here again if (when!) I come back to Jaffna.

    We really liked Betty’s Cottage and the owners were really nice. They booked our bus from Colombo to Jaffna which was a huge help, and they waited up until 4 am for us to arrive. We had only booked the place for the following night so they charged us half a day. The breakfast offered was fine, nothing to rave about. The WiFi is really good! The hosts are also nice and very dedicated to making sure we got everything we needed.

    First thing is the staff. They are very friendly. They have made us more helpful, safe, mind relaxing & supportive environment in the location. Also the location is much better we can have a quick walk to the town, Malayan cafe, Jaffna market, Bus stand and lot more. That’s really great. And also this property has AC and hot water facilities as well. For the cost this is really worthy choice.

    My room and the property were exceptionally clean. The bed was comfortable and there was sufficient lighting and power points. The food at the restaurant was tasty and reasonably priced. The beer was cold. Ahhhh! The staff was very helpful. Great quiet location. Do yourself a favor when in Jaffna, stay at the Gatetrees Resort… and maybe discover how it got its name.

    We had a wonderful time at Thambu Illam! A beautiful boutique hotel in a convenient location in Jaffna. We were lucky to have the place to ourselves and the staff were very accommodating, and Mathu even reached out to us ahead of arrival to arrange pickup from the train station which was really appreciated! The food was great and we also enjoyed using the pool :)

    Very homely, room was large and clean with good airconditioning. The host was super nice, helpful and friendly, always around to offer help. His wife makes the most delicious home made Jaffna food, try the mutton and crab curry. The place is on a very quiet street, however, it was easy to get a tuk tuk in and out of town or to any place of interest.
