Though this hotel offers no tv or fancy restaurants, it does comprise of staff that time and time again goes an extra mile to ensure your stay is as comfortable as can be. Also has a new swimmimg pool nestled between the nearby forest. A longer buffet (just 2 hours now) and all round internet would definitely go a long... More

We spent here our first nights in Sri Lanka as the hotel is in a good position to visit Sigirya and Dambulla. Breakfast and dinner buffet are satisfactory. Rooms are big and clean. Kind and helpful service. Free WiFi only in the lobby.

This hotel is a very safe choice. Rooms were big and clean with a decent shower. View was lovely and from our balcony we felt perfectly secluded. There is a good size pool and a fair number of deck chairs. The person working at the pool does a free (but you should tip) birdwatching tour which is interesting and worth... More

We stayed at Nice Place for two nights in March, and it indeed is a nice place. The hotel was selected for us as part of a booked private tour, but I checked against TA before leaving and was happy to see the positive reviews. We stayed in the new part of the complex in a top floor room (room... More

Nice Place Bungalows is a nice and quiet place with lot of greenery around and small stream around. Rooms are spread across the greenery. Staff was friendly and polite. But did not find TV, intercom and wifi in the room. Wifi is available in the reception area only.

Girlfriend and I stayed two nights here January 2015. Located a distance outside Dambulla, there are a few stand-alone bungalow rooms and some condo-type ones. Our room was in the new condo building. Good: The room was awesome. Modern, private, and new, with a big covered deck overlooking the Jungle, the room also had super high vaulted ceilings. AC unit... More

To begin with, Nice Place Hotel/Bungalows its not really in Dambulla and it is not really in Sigirya. It is part of Dambulla called 'Inamaluwa' but be aware you will be a good 10km at least out of the main town of Dambulla (around equal distance from Sigirya). You will either hate it that or love that. We loved it... More

We stayed for one night at the Nice Place Hotel in August 2014. This was our accommodation on a 2 day trip to Dambulla Caves and Sigiriya Rock and at first we were a bit hesitant as it didn't look the best place to be staying. However, I suppose you get what you pay and this was fairly cheap to... More

We travelled here in December 2014. Peaceful place tucked away from the busy streets of Sigiriya. The roads leading to this place is pretty bumpy and narrow so if you're driving, go slow. The path was flooded in some places due to heavy rains but still reachable. The bungalows are spacious and clean and the surrounding is quiet and very... More

At the arrival there was a little problem with the booking, as they had a room for us just for 1 night of 2 booked. But we got an upgrade for the one night. For the following day the manager booked us a room in a lodge nearby, but invited us to the xmas dinner at the nice place and... More
