What a wonderful place to stay. Lovely attention to detail. Food and service was excellent. Lovely people. Bed a little too hard for us but that is personal preference. Should be up there with the front runners as a good place to stay to visit Dambulla caves and Sigiriya rock. We visited a workshop for carving and batik centre in the area. I wouldn't say they are only interested in your money but you do feel obliged to buy. Also a short elephant ride which was a disappointment as the 'jungle' part of the ride was through an assortment of plastic bags and other rubbish. For 70 usd they could spend a couple of hours picking the rubbish up which would make the experience much nicer and they would get a bigger tip !!
