We stayed at the Golden Rainbow Inn last year.This is not a hotel, but ranked as special accomodation (guesthouse) It is a very nice place, with very nice people that run it.Monkeys are all over the place. We have seen them throwing rooftiles on the roof. Unfortunately the owner(himself or a friend) was trying to remake the rooms, so there... More

Clean and comfy room in the jungle. Really close to dambulla caves which was handy and the family were nice and friendly. Food was good too and one night when the wife was unwell we were given a couple of recommendations of places to eat. Only complaint is it was a bit buggy and the shower wasn't great but good...

A lovely stay with a very kind and welcoming host family. The room and bathroom were very clean. It offers a perfect location away from the main street into Dambulla so very quiet and peaceful. It is a short walk from the rock temple. At a very reasonable price this is a fantastic homestay!

We stayed for one night, the family were very sweet. Room was basic but clean. Air con did not work so he gave us a discount. Good breakfast in the morning and he arranged for us to be picked up by a trustworthy tuk tuk driver. Recommended.

The guesthouse's owner was very nice, he arranged a free pickup for us, set us up with a nice Tuktuk driver for our next day and let us use the shower of our room the day we left in the evening! The guesthouse is located close to the cave tempel, you will need a Tuktuk to go to the city... More

Stayed here for 1 night whilst visiting Dambulla Caves and Sigiriya Rock. It was only by chance that we ended up here on the recommendation of a tuk tuk driver. We were not disappointed. I believe it only has 2 rooms, it's quiet, peaceful and gives you an idea of Sri Lankan daily life. The family are so helpful and... More

We had a warm welcome in this lovely family. The room was nice but basic with a warm shower and mosquito net what was nice and needful. The owner has his own tuktuk that was nice because he could bring us everywhere. In the morning we had a delicious breakfast with fresh fruit and toast. Once we had dinner that... More

Kumara rents parts of his house to tourists, he arranged a transport for us from Negombo and then to Sigiriya and Kandy for reasonable price. The place is very basic, but clean and ideal for a one to two nights stay. There is nothing to see in Dambulla except of the cave temples which are nice, so I would not... More
