We followed the recommendation of our guidebook and ended up at this place...it wasn't the best decision. The menu includes both Western and Sri Lankan dishes and the prices are decent. This is the good part. The service and the quality of the food however are not especially high. For example, we had to wait 20+ minutes for our drinks,... More

Had pine apple juice and fresh lemon juice which were both good. The wash rooms were clean too. Did not stay and did not have a meal so cannot comment on them. Nice place to stop to relax. Looked cleaned inside out.

Good place to stay in. Definitely worth the price. Cleanliness can be a bit better. Hotel can also do well if basic necessities are made available to customers without them requesting for it. Food is good. Quite a private place too.

The upside of the heritage dambulla restaurant is that they do serve beers, some western dishes, and salads, though the curry a neighbouring table ordered did look good. The down side was that none of the western options are any good. Salad was just cut up tomato and cucumber slices with no dressing or seasoning, while for 850 rupees I... More

We did not stay at the hotel: we had only dinners at the hotel's restaurant and we really enjoyed them!! We loved the fact that we could enjoy our dinner on the small garden outside - despite the fact the hotel is on a busy road - and that food was tasty and came in big portions!!! Alcohol is also...

The room is very noisy as others are writing, not able to sleep. Cannot open window, dark room. Bath room not clean, only one torn towel. Wifi only available near the reception although it said wifi available. Very bad attitude of reception as well as manager. Not recommended!!!! Very sad I experienced that in Sri Lanka...

Hotel with only 4 rooms. Walking distance to the Rock Temple/ Golden Temple. Manager very helpful. Price very reasonable. Large rooms with AC and TV. 2 minutes drive to the bus station by TukTuk. Only negative is the noise of lorry and bus.

This has to be one of the best hotels we have ever stayed in. The view was beyond words. The rooms over looked the forest, to wake up in the morning with monkeys looing through the window was joyfull. Food was great also. a good selection for all diets and nationalities. Would love to go back here again

Nice service and good food. Great il you are planning on using Dambulla as a base to see the surrounding area too. My only complaint would be the bathroom. It wasn't very clean and there were problems with the shower, we would only get only cold water and then scalding hot for a few seconds...
