Nice and quiet place in Dambulla where there are not so many guesthouses. Central location (between the temple and the bus station). Wide rooms. Too bad we found a cockroach but it happens in Sri Lanka. Too bad also that we couldn't eat outside because of monkeys. Smiling owner.

Best part of this hotel is its location, 10 to 15 minutes walking distance from Dambulla bus station, local restaurants are also nearby and walking distance from Dambulla cave temple. Room and bathroom are moderately clean, I wish they provided us clean towel too. Welcome drinks were there and the surrounding environment is really soothing and relaxing! One thing I would like to suggest, they should keep ready alternative power source. We stayed only one night, there was storm in the evening, power was cut and we spent the whole night without electricity! Apart from that, owners (both the husband and wife) are friendly and helpful, they apologised for the "electricity" incident. Overall, I recommend this hotel if you are planning to use Dambulla as the base for visiting Sigiriya and Polonnaruwa.

This small guest house was a great way to spend the night in Dambulla, as a base to see the Dambulla cave temples and Sigiriya. The main bus stand is just 10 mins walk, and the cave temples just 7 mins walk. It only took about 45 mins to get to Sigiriya. The host was very accommodating in letting me leave my bag for a few hours after check out while I was visiting Sigiriya. The room was extremely clean and well furnished. The room has great wifi and a travel adapter is provided for use. No smoking in the room, but you have a seat on the front porch overviewing the beautiful garden. There are only 4 guest rooms, so the place has a very high standard to detail. Well worth the stay when passing through Dambulla. There is also a great restaurant nearby serving cheap but delicious rice and curry in a beautiful atmosphere - Heritage Dambulla Resort.

My girlfriend and I stayed here for two nights. We received a warm welcome and were well looked after (brought cups of tea in the morning!) The room was a good size and very clean. Dambulla served as a good place for viewing the cave temples and Sigiriya. Recommended.

Used as a base to visit the many sights around here. These holiday lodges were ideal. Clean . Hot water. Mossy net and ceiling fan we were more than comfortable here. Only down point - no fridge. Close to the Heritage which was ideal for simple (westernised) restaurant/Bar fayre.Gates closed at 10pm. Which was plenty late enough for us. Long days....early nights
