For people used to cheap and cheerful Asian accommodation, you learn quickly that Sri Lanka is cheerful but not cheap. Nice Place has a pleasant bush setting and a huge pool, but the room was ordinary and lacking in basics (like soap, bathroom light that worked, somewhere to put your clothes). When you're paying solid prices (we were on a... More

We spent 2 nights at this place and we loved the ambiance of this place. We were pleasantly surprised as the room was big and spacious . Our bungalow was surrounded by lots of trees that provided a lot of privacy. Most interesting was the swimming pool which was located a short distance away in complete serenity. The staff were...

We stayed for 2 nights in a room that needed a liitle bit of attention - couldn't close the door without locking it, but enjoyed our stay here. The pool was clean, but the slope of the bottom was rather slippery and so we had to be careful. The jungle noise was fine - had a frog in our sink... More

Stayed for 1 night but wouldn't do it again. Rooms are big and ^ok^ clean, didn't pickup trash from previous guests, a lot of insects. Location middle of jungle, pool seems very nice, but didn't use as it was pouring. Dinner was tasteless awful, beer & fresh fruit juice ridiculous expensive (450 rp. each). Breakfast was good.

Just spent 2 nights at the Nice Place bungalows at Dambulla and couldn't have been happierwith the location or the service. The bungalows are situated in beautiful gardens teeming with birdlife and the odd monkey. It has a large pool which is appreciated at the end of a hot day at the nearby Pinnawela Elephant Orphanage and incredible Rock Temple.... More

I was always taught to avoid the word nice, it's an adjective usually used to tactfully say something is unremarkable. The word does a huge disservice to this hotel as it was one of my favourite hotels out of the 10 (and counting) hotels I've stayed in throughout my time in Sri Lanka. The room was a great size, with... More

The staff were attentive and the pool was great rather a hot climb up sigiriya rock, but everything else was very disappointing. A simple buffet meal for 2 adults & a teenager & a child was over 10,000 rs; our electricity cut off 4 times in 4 hours; we had to turn off air conditioning when we used the shower;... More

First of all, the pool is AWESOME! That was one of the highlights of our stay. Also, it is located quite close to sigiriya, which was the main purpose of our visit. The staff is nice. We booked a standard room which really was not great... The room itself was OK, but the bathroom was a dissappointment. Nice Place is... More

My girlfriend and I stayed here for one night while visiting Lions Rock (Sigiriya) during a roundtrip on Sri Lanka. The bungalows were big, clean, separate bathrooms and wellfunctioning aircondition. The big bonus, however, is the pool, which is clean, quite new and a great way to chill during the worst of the heat. The restaurant on the premise serves... More
