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

We stayed here for one night to visit Sigiriya and also the temple caves. The guesthouse is a tuk tuk ride away (200 rupees) from the main bus stop but is still well placed for a visit to Sigiriya or Dambulla. Temple Caves are just a 5 min walk away. The staff were friendly, but VERY slow in the restaurant.... More

Stopped for the night. Good spacious rooms with clean bathrooms. Ideally located very close to the Golden and Rock Temple. One can easily go visit Sigiriya from there. The food served was good and staff was friendly.

We stayed here for 3 nights over New Years and had a really great time. The owner and his staff are wonderful and create a fun environment. It's in a really good location and the food is delicious. They are in the process of building a pretty amazing pool and floating bar. We also met a wonderful driver here -... More

We fell in love with Sundaras resort. Fantastic location, only 2 minutes walk from Rock tample and Golden temple. Easy to get from there to Sigirya. Specious and clean rooms and bathrooms. Strong wi fi signal, both in rooms, restaurant and lobby wich is unusual in Sri lanka hotels. Owner is travelling around the world so he knows exactly what... More

The rooms were clean and functional and the staff were friendly and accommodating, but the quality was far below what the website and room rate suggested (we had a deluxe room). yet ourroof leaked when it...
