We stayed there one night. It was great, friendly and helpful people, quiet place but a good location to visit the ruins by bicycle. The food is also amazing, the dinner was one of the best we ate in sri lanka.

Ajith's son is a charming and most welcoming host. Don't be put off by the seemingly remote location near the exit of the ruins (at Rankot Vihara). You will be really glad by the time you have got round the park that your home is very near. The food is delicious and plentiful. In particular the breakfast. Good coffee and superb hoppers! One final bonus is that Ajith's son speaks extremely good English which enabled us to piece together an amazing safari day out. This included visiting Sigiriya, Dambulla and then an Elephant safari. All of which came at very sensible price.

Such an amazing stay! In the best environment, quiet and scenic and just a stones throw away from the historic site. Very friendly, helpful and welcoming. The breakfast and evening meals were great too. Can totally recommend!

Clay Hut Village is slightly removed from the main town and enjoys a more peaceful setting in nature. While the accommodations are more rustic, you'll have everything you need. Ajith's son was taking care of the property while we were there and he took great care of us. What's more: the food is delicious. Dinner was like a feast, with many different dishes prepared. We would definitely recommend this location as a calm place to base yourself!

We stayed two nights in Clay Hut Village. We had one of the traditional family bungalows with a/c. It’s clean and spacious inside. We had good food in the stilted restaurant, which sits in a big pond, which at the time was dry and had some great chats with Ajith’s son, who is now looking after the property. We also borrowed bikes and cycled along the scenic river.

Nice accomodation and if your visiting the ruins its about a 30 min cycle ride but then when you finish the mud hut is ride by one of the exits ! Ajith is a very friendly host and the food is excellent, he also organised bikes and safari for us.

Ajith made us feel welcome from the moment we arrived. The accommodation was spacious and very cool. The grounds are surrounded by monkeys, mongooses and birds, it really is so beautiful. A perfect spot to sit after a busy day seeing the ancient parts of the city, (which are very close the accommodation). To see the city cycling is a very cheap and easy option from this location and I would highly recommend. A real highlight from this stay was the food, both quality and quantity were outstanding. This really is a great stay for anyone wanting to explore this part of Sri Lanka.

I am the manager of Clay Hut Village. I have been a national guide for more than 30 years but after all this travelling I have decided to settle down at what I think is one of the most beautiful regions of Sri Lanka. Polonnaruwa has an ancient history and a beautiful nature. There is a nice local atmosphere and people still bathe in the river. You can rent abicycle for 3 $ a day or a motorcycle for 10 $ a day and you can easily explore on your own. If you have questions, please do not hesitate to ask.
