Room was very worn and not very clean. There was mould all along the back wall, probably caused by the aircon unit which had been installed at an angle so the water in the drip tray was leaking out the end and running down the wall. The owner attempted to fix this by knocking it hard which did nothing. We...

Really nice hostel just a few metres from the main road (which makes it soundless). The guy managing the hostel is a really nice guy. After accepting the offer he made us, he invited us to a coca-cola and a water, brought us some toilet paper and chatted with us for a while. Rooms are spacious and simple. Two double...

Good location-near the golden temple. Friendly staff. Room was average, breakfast area was pretty dirty and not inviting. Hot water and AC working. Be careful of the mosquitoes- we got eaten pretty bad while sitting outside the room in the evening!

Guest house near the Golden Temple, may need a 10-mins walk to there. Room is simple, A/C & hot water work normally. Host's attitude seems OK, but when I make deals(transport to guest house on first day and transport to Lion Rock on second day by tuk-tuk) with him, all of them have problem eventually, thus this makes me feel...

Basic guest house, nice and clean, with brand new bathroom and wifi. It is very conveniently placed, although Dambulla is not the nicest place if you'd like to take a stroll around, as it is on a main road full of traffic. The owner is very nice, although a bit pushy as far as your holiday organisation goes. Overall, very...

Blue Sky is located about 500m beyond the main temple, approx. 10 minutes by tuk-tuk (150Rs) from the bus stand to Kandy/Colombo/Anuradhapura. There are 8 rooms, with good sized beds, fans (which broke during our stay), a selection of complementary cold drinks, ability to reserve tuk-Tuks and scooters. Easy to walk to the cave temple, and about 20-30mins to sigiriya....

Good things: Great value for the money. My own room for 12 usd per night. Location is not downtown Dambulla, but Dambulla doesn't really have anything downtown that you'd be interested in. Just one main noisy road with some bus stands and a couple eateries. Location is withing walking distance of the cave rock temple. Manager and staff are linked...

It's a basic guest house with good price. The room is simple but not very clean. The manager reccomend to us a restaurant with "best srilankan cousine" and it was a bad restaurant, very expensive for the prices of sri lanka. It's not in the center of Dambulla, but very near.
