Location perfect”
Tinaya is just on the main road and close to many restaurants. Rooms were big but can be more clean. Wifi available only in reception area and hard time was to deal with mosquitoes there. Staff were friendly.

It was ok not too good value for money”
They were not prepared for our arrival though we checked in at around 3pm. We were asked to wait at the reception till they set up our room. The bathroom was cleaned with acid quickly so when we went inside the room we could hardly breathe because of the acid smell. We had to ask for everything again and again, may be the mosquito repellent or the light not working. The wi-fi was hopeless since the router was not anywhere near. The room was not cleaned when we came back next day in the evening from sight seeing, though we left the key with them in the morning. The explanation they gave was that we had to specifically ask them to get the room cleaned if we wanted them to clean it. I told them that they should have asked us if we wanted the room to be cleaned or not. We assumed that the room will be cleaned if we left the key as it happens in other hotels. It was more of a family hosting a few rooms rather than a full-fledged hotel. It shows up on the internet as a hotel instead. The breakfast was not included in the cost and the charges for 4 bread slices, an omelette a a tea was Rs 1000 and it was too much.

good staff but that's all ”
helpful staff, good be, air conditioning
Our room wasn't deluxe as was announced at all and to our disappointment had no windows; we didn't feel safe in the district where hotel was located. Food in the restaurant seemed overpriced for what we had, breakfast was standard - fried eggs and toasts. Staff is helpful and doing everything you ask for. In principle OK, but better we don't stay in Dambulla at all.

Friendly Staff, Good Food and Convenient Location
The staffs are very friendly and helpful. We went to Sigiriya and Polonnaruwa. Used a nano car in hotel to both places, and affordable, although bus or tuk tuk are both cheaper and convenient. Meal is delicious and we had our dinners in hotel. The only downside is that room does not have window.

Decent hotel in Dambulla”
Food, nice staff, hot water
The hotel was overall ok. Took awhile for my room to get ready when I arrived even though no one else was staying at the hotel it seems. The wifi was really only available in the main area, didn't have any in my room. My room was also very noisy all night from the street noise - even though the location is in the city there isn't really anything to do in Dambulla. I'd suggest to others to stay at nicer boutique hotels closer to Sigriya. Staff was friendly and food was good, but they wouldn't arrange an early breakfast takeaway for me the next morning when I was going to Sigriya Rock so I overpaid and didn't get anything....

Poor performance”
the goodness was the tasty fruit for breakfast
it was terrible. i booked it for 2 nights but i actually left after the 1st night and rented another room. of course they would not offer a refund. we didn't arrive at the hotel until 630pm and the rooms were still not ready. i paid for the deluxe room...the only difference btw my room and my friends standard rooms was that it had a tv. BUT the tv did not work and the owner could not fix it. The location was in the middle of town...but unfortunately Dambulla is only a junction town and its not somewhere you want to be at night. I would recommend that anyone considering this hotel or any other hotel in Dambulla stay in the Sigiria area instead just 20 minutes up the road.

Its all about location :)”
Location, Breakfast & Rates
It is what it is - a well place cheap hotel, that offers BASIC sleeping arrangement. THere is not top sheet only the bottom fitted sheet and a blanket.... quite uncomfortable when we tried to keep AC off...Our choice I know but really do not feel that a top sheet would have been that much to expect. Also I suppose it is unfair to rate this hotel in comparing with other properties we stayed at over the 10 days in Sri Lanka... I reiterate it is cheap and its location is what we were looking for - easy access to the sites. The hotel being in the main street meant that one could easily walk to other restaurants and the supermarket etc. Parking was also available for our car and driver was accommodated adequately. Breakfast was lovely and sufficient to sustain us for the rock climb etc. Overall I would most likely stay there again because in Dambulla you really are out of the room all day.... so it is just a place to park your head at night and eat a hearty breakfast before you go out for the day.

The staff were friendly and very attentive. The food was delicious, especially the Sri Lankan lunch buffet. While the hotel was situated in the centre of town, the hotel provided a comfortable courtyard haven to sit and drink an evening beer or an afternoon coffee.

Central location in Dambulla city
The hotel is very well presented at internet web site but in reality it looks not so good. The room had no window (only very small window in the bathroom), so the smell was very unpleasant and we couldn't get rid of it even opening door and window in the bathroom.

1泊寝るだけ滞在”
到着は18時頃。次の日朝早くシーギリヤに行くため宿泊しました。 ホテルの入り口を出てすぐ左のバス停にシーギリヤ行きのバスが来ます。 反対側のバス停はキャンディ行きのバス停です。バスターミナルに行かなくてもバスに乗れる便利なロケーションでした◎ ゴールデンブッダまでは歩いて30分くらい。 スタッフはみなさん笑顔で迎えてくれました。 チェックアウト後、荷物預かりOK ホテル周りはにぎやかです。 併設のレストランが人気の様です。 部屋はシンプルですが広くて荷物も広げれて使いやすいです。 水シャワーでしたが暑い日だったので大丈夫でした! シーギリヤロックのための1泊ならロケーションがいいのでおすすめです◎

ダブルブッキング…”
夕方頃ホテルに到着したら、また車で移動。言われるがままついていくと、別のホテルに到着。ダブルブッキングということで、そのホテルに宿泊しました。次の日、現地のガイドさんと合流。2泊目も違うホテルのままは嫌だったので、事情を話し、ホテルの従業員に聞いてもらいました。ガイド現地のガイドさんが間に入ってくれたので、評判を落としたくないらしく(ガイドさん曰く)、2泊目はティナヤに戻ることになりました。アゴダにも連絡をしてホテルに問い合わせてもらい、帰ってきたティナヤからの答えが「ダブルブッキングだったので、支払ってもらう宿泊料金に見合う、同じレベルのホテルに泊まってもらった」ということでした。実際に両方泊まって、同じレベルのホテルには感じず、1泊目のホテルをアゴダで調べたら、料金は半額で星の数も違っていました。よく堂々と同じだと言えたものだなぁと思いました。現地のガイドさんが間に入ったとたん、従業員の対応が手のひらを返したように良くなり、その差に唖然としました。あまりいい気持ちはしませんでした。

家族経営のようで暖かい雰囲気、朝食が外のため開放感がある、観光地に行きやすい
夜に空港に着いたため、ダンブッラまで車で4時間半かかった。到着が夜中だったため、真っ暗でしたがスタッフが出迎えてくれた。部屋は広めだけど暗い。バスルームはシャワーのみだけど、掃除は行き届いている。寝るためだけに選んだホテルなので快適というわけではないけど、過ごしやすかった。朝食は外で準備してくれて気持ちよく食事できた。スタッフが皆笑顔で暖かい感じ。
