We stayed in this hotel for one night while on transit to Sigiriya. The interior decor of the hotel is great and the rooms are nicely furnished. Though the hotel is directly located in the center od Dambulla town, it is still still in a quiet location, away from the hustle and bustle. We had a good night's sleep. The only downturn was the bathroom and especially the shower cabinet. The water from the shower flooded the whole bathroom which was also full of mould. However, the bathroom was clean.
Breakfast buffet was good and seems to be a pull as many tour groups stop over for a quick eat. The set diner menu was not to our liking though.
Overall, 70 USD for a double room on half-board basis is is good value for money for this hotel.
