The hotel is located just 5min walking to the temple and 15min taking tuk tuk to the city. The staff is friendy, trying to help with any request. But the service in the restaurant is incredibly slow, it took them more than 1 hour at least to prepare several fried eggs. I would recommend you to go straight to order... More

Spent one night here and it was wonderful. The staff was very friendly, they were happy to help with whatever I needed and even more than that. The room was big, comfortable and very clean. The surroundings of the resort were nice and pleasant. A very good aspect of the place is the location, it's very near the temple, which... More

The staff were extremely helpful in answering questions before we came about the accommodation (even though we called at midnight). Then, I rang up on the morning of our arrival (we were travelling by bus from Trinco) and asked them to pre-book a safari to Minneriya so that when my friend and I arrived in Dambulla, we were able to...
