We spent one night here as a base for visiting Dambulla and Sigiriya. In terms of facilities, this was probably the best place we stayed at in Sri Lanka. Rooms were very comfortable, with tea/coffee facilities, tv, great shower and lots of towels and toiletries. The only issue could be noise from the very busy road running past the hotel. Not a problem for us as we were getting up early, but probably not the place for a lie-in!
The on-site restaurant and bar was also very good, although could get quite busy with tour groups coming through. Prices were also very high for Sri Lanka, but there isn't really much choice in Dambulla. The setting is great, looking out onto the pool and the rural landscape beyond.
The staff were also very helpful, with the guy at reception pointing out to us where to catch the local bus to Sigiriya (we'd never have known otherwise!), and also advising us of the best way to travel on to Negombo. The cave temples are also very close, only a 5 minute, 100 rupee tuk-tuk ride away.
Overall, I'd recommend this place as a good base for visiting the cultural triangle, especially if you're relying on public transport. If you have a car, maybe the countryside around Sigiriya would be more rewarding. Just wish the restaurant prices were a bit more reasonable!
