Reviewed November 12, 2012

Just avoid this place! Dirty, very expensive when you book online and not helpful. It was awful for us! Water noise in the bathroom, room smells awful (pee!!) and the road noise never stops! AC doesn't work, and when we asked to change they said no!

We booked a room in Sun Ray Inn online, a day in advance. It was amongst the cheapest rooms available online in Dambulla. From the outside the building looks absolutely fine, there is also a restaurant and a bar attached. Reception staff is very friendly and confirmed our online reservation and prepayment without any issues. The room itself was clean in a sense that the stuff that could be cleaned was not filthy. Bathroom featured a power shower and the AC worked as well. The only furniture in the room was three beds and a small table. The walls, however, looked like someone started plastering and painting them, but them didn't finish. One wall had a massive mould problem - it was very damp. The parts that were painted had stains on them (although they were not filthy). It was only lit by one lightbulb. Overall, despite the fact that it was clean, it was a pretty depressing experience. It basically needs to be painted from scratch. Restaurant serves acceptable food at acceptable prices. In a nutshell - the cheapest place in Dambulla available online - you get what you paid for (or to rephrase that, you don't get what you didn't pay for). We slept in hotels in Sri Lanka where we paid twice as much and the hotel was not any better and on the other hand Stratosphere Hotel in Las Vegas costs twice as much as Sun Ray Inn in Dambulla but it may as well be in another dimention and on another planet in another galaxy in terms of quality of the room.
