enjoyed our stay at this querky hotel. Nice welcome by lovely smiling staff. Nice clean rooms and even the rotweiler was very friendly. Had a few mishaps with getting the right dinner or meals together or meals hot, gagging for a beer with no bottle opener for 10 mins was the worst! Generally though it was only slight disorganisation and... More

I visited Dambulla with parents in April 2015. The hotel is pretty nice. For our 1st night we got a room without balcony, as all the other rooms were occupied, but the next morning we shifted to a room with a balcony. Rooms are spacious and one of the rare hotels which has a proper triple bed room with 3... More

Warm and cosy hotel with great location - just a ten minute walk to the cave temple and half an hour to Sigiriya. Really friendly owner (Damien) and staff - they go out of their way to make sure you've had a good stay. Must try the Sri Lankan fish/prawn curry rice if you're eating at the restaurant.

I booked this hotel at the very last minute and solely based on reviews. I'm really glad I did because it was a really good experience staying here. The location is great - 2 mins from the Cave Temples. Everyone at the hotel was super helpful and hospitable. The rooms were clean and comfortable and totally affordable. The area is... More

The owner was friendly. The place is located in a nice area close to the Dambulla caves. The room was clean but had a lot of insects. Our room had a weird strong smelled to it. I struggled to sleep at night because of the smell. The food was bad.

We spent three weeks in Sri Lanka and Sundara´s Resort was by far the best place we stayed at. The rooms are European standard, everything was very clean, the WIFI worked perfectly, the location is perfect for visiting the caves and to start your day trips, the food is delicious, it´s surrounded by nature,...it´s simply perfect! However, the very best... More

I stayed for 5 nights and used this as a launching point to see the sites around the Cultural Triangle. Their driver Saman, was amazing and the staff was very helpful with any requests you might have. Even the hotel dog, Rocky, is a wonderful host. The staff are knowledgeable and was happy to call this place home while away... More

Rooms were clean and spacious, beds had a mossie net. We were on the ground floor so had a nice terrace to sit out on at night. All staff were friendly and really helpful. The hotel was located a short walk from the gold Buddah temple and from the temple caves. Tuk Tuk's are a 20 minute ride to Sigiriya... More
