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

We, ( 3 friends) stayed in Nice place hotel on the 25th of july ( my birthday). We were on a tour so it was only for one night. We would have loved to stay longer. A very beautiful quiet place with a fantastic swimmingpool!. I even had a big cake with my name on for my birthday!! Super!

Good rooms in a nice garden. The rooms are spacious and clean, and all have a private balcony. The food is good, the pool is great and the people are very friendly. The location is very good for visiting Sigiriya and Dambulla.

Spent our first two nights here on our 10 day tour of Sri Lanka. Although the rooms were fairly basic and the bathrooms dated we found here the best freshly cooked food we experienced out of all the hotels we stayed in during our stay in Sri Lanka, and the friendliest staff. Pool, wifi, clean rooms, only let down by... More

What a Nice Place. Our room was really big, clean and a great place to watch the wild life. We stayed 2 nights as part of a 6 day tour. This was really the first place we experienced Sri Lankan food and we weren't disappointed. They laughed at me as I was saying the food was superb whilst blowing my... More

Great place, amazing staff! Stayed one night, checked in late -- after touring Sigiriya... Loved the bungalows: spacious, clean, hot water, wifi in the "lobby"... and at 7,000 rs a night who could complain? Amazing pool area... so secluded, feels really private. Breakfast is included. Overall -- great place, and would highly recommend! Definitely a hidden "gem" :)
