Whilst I didn't stay here I did have dinner one evening which was a delicious buffet of local curries and a fruit platter. I also had drinks and spent time by the pool. The staff are so friendly and gave some great advice about planning tours and onward travel. Service was very efficient and everyone made us feel so welcome....

Me and my two friends stayed here for 2 nights, but we would have extended if we had the time to. We were welcomed with a big smile, a fresh towel and a drink, which was all we needed after a day spent wondering around the temples in the roasting heat. Just the time to check in into one of...

Reviewed 24 April 2016 via mobile

We stayed in Dambulla for two nights and after looking around a couple of guest houses settled for the least offensive. It was then rather upsetting to discover this place a short walk down the main road on the morning before our bus. We had breakfast there and then chilled by the pool/jacuzzi until lunch time. We had a chance...

The brilliant hotel for this value. Place with a cozy atmosphere, nice pool, polite staff. The localisation is in 10 minutes on foot to main Dambulla attractions. The only one negative feature - absence of coctails in the pool bar )
