                  Worst hotel ever
                  Absolutely nothing
                  you eat many meals at hotels, and we were not given an option about what to eat (only vegetarian fried rice). We asked if we could get more than one beer, and they said no.

                  Do yourself a favour and find another place.
                  Location was pleasant, room was large
                  The hotel is quite new and modern and that is where the positives end. In the bathroom, the towels were filthy and had to be sent back. The new ones were more or less the same. The LED lighting is so poor that half does not work and once in the shower, we discovered broken glass everywhere - too late after being cut by it. The staff saw no real need to clean up and eventually we had to do it. Then, water ran everywhere making the room unusable. The rest of the place could use a good clean - animal droppings and dirt everywhere making sofas etc unusable. Dinner was basic at best and as we foolishly did not ask the price, we were over-charged three times the going rate at other places - a complete rip off! This place is plagued by lazy staff who do not care and a very poor management - in fact it's just a few guys hanging around. Avoid this as it is sure to disappoint and it compares very poorly to others we stayed in on our Sri Lanka trip.

                  Would not go back
                  I honestly cannot think of anything.
                  Did not expect much for what we were paying but at the very least you expect cleanliness. Arrived to no towels and no water in the room. No menu for dinner - eat what was on offer. The hotel refused our guide a bed even though there were rooms available. The manager sorted this out in the morning but by then it was too late. Was woken up by staff to ask what time we wanted breakfast but then it was not ready before we left in the morning. Swimming pool did not look very inviting or clean. The whole place had the feel of somewhere that had been abandoned for six months and just been reopened as an experiment

                  Good Location for sigriya and cave temple
                  The location is good and the hotel is decent but too many bugs. If they sort bug issue and improve service then it will be great as location is nice and rooms too. Lake view from room is also good

                  Very nice and occidental hotel
                  Very clean, nice design and good staff
                  Located in Dambullah, the Grand Kalundawa was one of the best hotels I stayed in Sri Lanka. It's a very occidental hotel, the rooms are big and very comfortable (specially the matress!!). I recommend everybody to stay in this hotel as, moreover, it's not very expensive (I payed 40€ for a double room).

                  Hopeless
                  No best things to comment
                  We went with my two kids. One is 5+ and the other one is 2+. When we were reached there, no body was. Only one man. He was the receptionist, room boy, chef and waiter. He gave us a hot papaya drink as a welcome drink. No refrigerator. No kettle, no tea bags nothing inside the room for prepare tea when we want. The moment we reached the hotel we understood the situation. Evening we visited the Dambulla temple and had dinner from outside. When we come back twp foreign families were there. The person was acting a one man show. Following day morning till 8.00 o'clock no bed tea. Then we call the person and asked for tea. By 8.30 he said breakfast is ready. So by 9.00 o'clock we went to have our meal. We were wondering. No words to say. We both looked at our face to face. for my elder son he had prepared 2 sausages and 1 fried egg. For my younger son just 1 fried egg. For me and my hubby 10 slices of bread, butter and jam. Just imagine our breakfast. Kids says what they had in their plates are not enough and had the bread too. Then he gave us the same papaya juice what we had the previous day. No tea/coffee. But he serves a lot to those foreign families by asking what they want. Ultimately we came out of that poor hotel and on our way to colombo we had grand breakfast from the "Palpatha" rest house. I would not recommend this hotel to any one.

                  An attractive hotel building in a lovely setting
                  A fast flowing river curves through the tree filled garden. It was so relaxing to sway in the hammock looking up at the tree canopy. Inside, high ceilings give a light, airy feeling.
                  We enjoyed our stay here, the hotel has a good design giving a light, clean airy feeling with a few interesting pictures in the public areas. Minor bad points are the position of the toilet paper in the bathroom, you'd need very long arms to reach it, and the ants also in the bathroom. We enjoyed chatting with the young waiter who was friendly and helpful. The WiFi didn't work for my iPad but the manager was kind enough to let me use his computer to send a short message home.
