We spent one night at Sundaras and were given two of the new rooms by the pool. This resort is well located for a visit to the rock caves at Dambulla (a short walk) and has the potential to be a great hotel; the staff were very friendly and helpful, the restaurant was good (if a little slow) and the...

Again, a last minute change of plans and a last minute booking on booking.com. First impressions: nice garden and no one at reception. Had to wait a good 5-7 minutes and our driver to go looking for someone, before somebody showed up. We were given rooms adjacent to the reception (oldest rooms). I will come back to the rooms later... More

When we arrived there was no one at the reception which put me off straightaway. No shampoo in the toilet. No tea making facilities in the room. The rooms looked old and damp. Lighting was too dim. While I was talking a bath…the shower head came off. The mosquito net had holes in it. Only good for 1 night…and that's... More

We had a great stay in Sundaras resort. The rooms were really comfortable with nice fluffy towels and hot water. There was great wifi coverage around the hotel and in our room. It was probably the fastest we've had so far in Sri Lanka. The owner, Damien, was absolutely great! He went out of his way to make sure we... More

Sundaras is located at the main road from Dambulla to Kandy and although it's a busy road we had a room on ground level just behind the lobby and it was quiet. We are with four, two adults and two children 12 and 13 years old. The room offers a double and a single bed but to make it a... More

Upon arrival, no one was manning the reception area which we thought was odd... There was no welcome at all in fact, but we were shown to our room shortly afterwards. The room was shall we say, is in need of refurbishment. It was dated, looked dingy and with its poor lighting we were instantly glad we were only staying... More

We've had a pleasant time while staying in Dambulla. Rooms are spacious and clean, staff is attending and helpful. Breakfast is included: which is a standard English tea/coffee, egg, toast and jam. Also the dinner wasn't that special, considering the prices. When we left we had to pay for a phone call we made using their phone. This felt strange... More

We stayed here for just one night. The staff were friendly and the room was large and clean. There were tea making facilities in the room, complementary bottles of water supplied and the aircon worked well, the shower had plenty of hot water. We ate in the restaurant and food was fine. Wifi was free and working! The strange thing... More
