Again really good”
Again we stayed here for a couple days, met de manager as well and had a drink with him, really openminded person and that reflects on the hotel very well. We had some hot water issue and right away they went and fixed it. He also advised us on what more there was to see in dambulla. Also he was kind enough to call the railway station to ask the departure times. Rooms cleaned every day (if using the sign on the door) no noice from the street in the room, tv with english channel(s), food looked awedome and delicious (didnt tryed it) and staff verry friendly and helpful. Definetly would recommend to anyone !

Best hotel quality/price in dambulla”
We are staying for 3 weeks in sri lanka and so far this is without a doubt THE BEST hotel we did. Its VERY clean everywhere, everything is Maitnanced well, pool is never overcrowed and staff is very friendly and helpful ! Breakfast is ok so is diner. Only thing would be the shower it was leaking and not much pressure but i'm thinking this is typical here we sax this litterally in Each hotel. Would definetly recommend this one!

Food is really expensive. But its tasty. Per night charge is high. Facilities are older since they gave us the old wing due to some reason in the new wing. ”
The location is supper since its the hub to Trinco, Plonaruwa, Anuradhapura, Batti, and even for nature lovers its great convenient place. Facilities are older since we were offered the room from the old wing. Therefore value for money is not that worth. It costs about 8000 Rs per night. But the same facility in Malaysia would cost only about 3500 Rs per night if you covert to local currency. The pool is not that clean. it wont attract any one. The breakfast menu is almost same every day morning. But has got many options to try. There is no room service at all. They requested 1000 Rs to deliver a plate to the room apart from the price of that plate. This is really poor service. If you coming after 10pm, no food at all. They are not ready to give you any food after 10pm. Apart from that no problem from the staff. But no special service also. If you use it as a transit hotel, then this is supper place due to its prime location.

Dear Mr. Duleep, Thank you for your comments. Specially the note on convenient. I apologize for the problems that you encountered during your stay. This is not the type of review that we like to see, and I assure you that I will be looking into each point that you have made. Following note for your better understanding. # We have published our 'Operational Hours' in the site : from 06.00 am to 10.00 pm for guest information. But also we keep dinner @ rooms if guests have requested in advance. # Room service is not available after 10.00 pm (Please refer point no 01), also we charge Rs. 1000/= extra which most of the Hotels does. To reduce guest dissatisfaction we always ask guest to use our Restaurant to have their meals for a better relaxing and better service. # Breakfast buffet changes will be done immediately with the chefs as you mentioned. Thank you for staying with us, and we look forward to another chance to serve you.

A good mid class hotel”
As we didn't expect more comfort, the hotel was on the level we expected. Close to the main road, very noisy. Service was very good, especially in the restaurant. Rooms were ok, bathes needs to be rebuildt, not more state of the art. Restaurant Food was delicious, every time recommended.

Superb! Highly recommend !”
Staff is very accomodating, helpful and pleasant, Being a first time solo female traveller I felt very safe and comfortable at the hotel. The location is great. The decor is good too. Good place for families or for people who just want to relax. Needs a little bit of maintenance and repair work specially in the toilets. But I would still highly recommend it specially if you are on a budget

It's a small number of rooms with a huge busy restaurant, professional staff and a great pool. My room 106 had an unpleasant odour and was pretty ordinary, clean. The hotel is expanding. Drainage needs attention.

Pleasant oasis in a dusty town”
Elegant decor with well-appointed rooms. Centrally located in town but managed to offer feel of being secluded. Good swimming pool
Really enjoyed our 2 night stay. There was little to dislike about the hotel. All aspects were above average for a place modestly calling itself 2* - it was miles better than some of the 4* hotels we visited in tourist resorts. Dinner was of good quality but the Sri Lankan breakfast was excellent. Excellent and underused pool adjacent to restaurant. Centrally located in an otherwise uninspiring town, hotel managed to create an ambience of being secluded. I would most certainly use this hotel again if visiting the Cultural Triangle.

Absolutely terrible Slow internet”
Quaint hotel in the middle of nowhere. The staff was friendly and gave suggestions of nearby restaurants. In terms of liveability - the bathrooms were below standard and the electricity went more than once in a night. Overall - good enough for a backpacker hotel but if you are expecting anything remotely luxurious, do yourself a favour and cough up a little extra cash!
