We stumbled upon this place quite by accident - we had asked our tuk-tuk driver to take us from Sigiriya to our hotel (MPS Village), but he told us that Nice Place was nicer and that it was cheaper (indeed it was, by about a third). He persuaded us to take a look at the place and it turned out to be pretty decent looking. Being absolutely exhausted after a long day and as it was pouring with rain, we decided to stay there rather than go all the way to MPS Village.

The place has a lovely garden and it looks like the place is not quite finished yet - there was still some construction going on around our bungalow. The room was big and came with A/C (a must in Sri Lanka unless you're in the highlands) and reasonably clean.

Now because of the isolated location, it is not a really cheap option because you must pay a tuk-tuk driver to take you there and you must have dinner and breakfast there (no shops or restaurants along the road, you're a long way from Dambulla on a very minor country lane deep in the forest). The food at the restaurant there was pretty good but expensive by Sri Lankan standards. Like come on, even if the food is delicious, you can't charge inflated Colombo prices just because you're dealing with foreigners. The breakfast is included in the price and was pretty respectable.

We did experience a blackout which lasted 20 minutes during our dinner, but the staff were helpful and friendly throughout the blackout.

If you're looking for a place to stay close to Sigiriya, it's a decent option given that the price for the bed & breakfast is decent; but once you add what you pay for the dinner and the tuk-tuk; well, you may wanna shop around for something in Dambulla itself.

Still, we had a very good night's sleep which is valuable.
