It was descent room, but bit pricey
location, location, location
We only stayed at this hotel for one night as we wanted to climb the Sigiriya Rock the next morning. The hotel has an interesting layout, the restaurant is descent and outside which gives sort of nice feel. Our room was kinda low standard I felt, the beds are uncomfortable and the air-conditioning was not really working. I had found a deal for a 4 star hotel the same price as this hotel, so it is difficult to not think of that in this review. It did feel clean and it's in a descent location.

centrally located for sights
large room, wifi, pool
This hotel is a little tired looking but clean enough. Our room was large and well equipped eg with tea/coffee making facilities, TV, bedside lights and mosquito nets (just remember to use them!) The bathroom was small and a little gloomy but clean enough. The staff booked us a decent driver for day trips out. The hotel is well located for trips to Polonnaruwa, Dambulla cave temples and Sigiriya Lion Rock (take tuk-tuk for last 2 sights). We booked 4 nights but only stayed 3 as we ran out of things to do and Dambulla itself isn't very exciting. Breakfast wasn't too bad and filled us up enough to skip lunch. The hotel restaurant, whilst offering nice views of the pool and countryside, was hugely overpriced and not great but there seemed to be little choice in eateries nearby. We didn't use the pool though we did see it being cleaned. There was free WiFi at the hotel. Altogether not an unpleasant stay and probably quite good by Sri Lankan standards.

very comfortable, homely and quiet.
cleanliness, quiet atmosphere., friendly staff.
Check-In was absolutely easy and the staff at the front desk was very helpful. The rooms were spacious and comfortable and very clean. Although it's very close to the main road the atmosphere was so quiet that we all had a good night sleep. The food was very good and the area where the food was served was clean and attractive - specially in the night.

Cost effective hotel
cheap, clean, big room
Although the room condition was good, the internal key of the door was broken for 2 rooms out of 3 rooms. Even the hotel staff insisted on safety, I think the most important point is lacking.
