              I wish they could maintain the place”
              Staff, Location,
              We, a family of 7 including teen agers and yound children had booked two tripple rooms through agoda for our recent trip to SriLanka but regretted later when we arrived there. The location is good a bit outside the Dambulla town on Kandalama road but poorly maintained and managed. Though the Manager and the Lady Administrator were very good and kind , always there to listen and help but there was much they could not help. For example the Bath rooms were built later and with temporary partitions. Bath Room Doors could not be locked as the locks were broken. Door Rooms were of so light material as if they were of paper. Ventelator glass was absent and cooling was going out of room. Bath room condition was pathetic and water pressure was very low for shower. Breakfast was just OK but only ome man serving was delaying things. Nude women portrait was on the walls of room which they removed on our request. Despite of appreciating the efforts made by both the persons available there I wish they could do more if the owner realizes the problems.

              Not much. pool was unusable.
              We stayed at this hotel because the listing included a swimming pool. Turns out the water was emerald green and there were hundreds of small black fish swimming in it.

              Good for overnight stay to visit Sigiriya”
              Bed, quietness and staff
              unfortunately there was no bar or kitchen operating during our stay, but the manager did his best to get drinks and food for us. Breakfast was supplied but the eggs had been prepared the night before and refrigerated and were unpalatable. Toast and tea was good.A reasonably cheap place to stay for the trip to Sigiriya. Tuk tuk trip into Dambulla took about 7 mins and cost 200 rupees

              Helpful staff, yummy food
              Not very cheap place even though supposed to be budget. But receptionist super helpful and nice. Food was good but took over 1 h to prepare, so order early. Room was ok. Note that hotel is not in Dambulla town itself, though easily reachable by tuk tuk.

              Gentillesse du manager
              Hotel mal entretenu et vetuste. J'étais la seule chambre occupée sur 35. Par contre le proprietaire des lieux était tres serviable et m'a même installé le routeur internet dans ma chambre. Pas de piscine transformée en pateaugeoire nauséabonde pour poissons, le spa est tres sale et les massages ne sont en rien professionnels
