Only stayed one night as the guest house we booked over the road sold out when we wanted to stay an extra night. This guest house was lovely. Very clean bathroom and bedroom. Mosquito net was in good condition and we had a large floor standing fan. Set back from the road a little so the road noise isn't an... More

I stayed with my sister two nights. They have differant rooms and they all are clean and a good standard for Sri Lanka. It was the cheapest we stayed in the two weeks and one of the best places! The location is good (you can walk to the Dambulla Rock Temple) and the staff is just super nice and helpfull!... More

Only stayed here for one night but the room and bathroom were great for the price we paid. The guesthouse was full the night we were there as the owner has dropped his prices for low season to get people in. It's a good strategy and seems to be working. We were greeted by the very friendly owner with water... More

Room was very worn and not very clean. There was mould all along the back wall, probably caused by the aircon unit which had been installed at an angle so the water in the drip tray was leaking out the end and running down the wall. The owner attempted to fix this by knocking it hard which did nothing. We... More

Really nice hostel just a few metres from the main road (which makes it soundless). The guy managing the hostel is a really nice guy. After accepting the offer he made us, he invited us to a coca-cola and a water, brought us some toilet paper and chatted with us for a while. Rooms are spacious and simple. Two double... More

Good location-near the golden temple. Friendly staff. Room was average, breakfast area was pretty dirty and not inviting. Hot water and AC working. Be careful of the mosquitoes- we got eaten pretty bad while sitting outside the room in the evening!

Guest house near the Golden Temple, may need a 10-mins walk to there. Room is simple, A/C & hot water work normally. Host's attitude seems OK, but when I make deals(transport to guest house on first day and transport to Lion Rock on second day by tuk-tuk) with him, all of them have problem eventually, thus this makes me feel...

Basic guest house, nice and clean, with brand new bathroom and wifi. It is very conveniently placed, although Dambulla is not the nicest place if you'd like to take a stroll around, as it is on a main road full of traffic. The owner is very nice, although a bit pushy as far as your holiday organisation goes. Overall, very... More

Blue Sky is located about 500m beyond the main temple, approx. 10 minutes by tuk-tuk (150Rs) from the bus stand to Kandy/Colombo/Anuradhapura. There are 8 rooms, with good sized beds, fans (which broke during our stay), a selection of complementary cold drinks, ability to reserve tuk-Tuks and scooters. Easy to walk to the cave temple, and about 20-30mins to sigiriya.... More
