The hotel is located in a poor area. So it's quite a walk to the city center. The room was very basic and clean, but enough for one night. There are mosquito net over the beds. The bathroom is ok but when you took a shower the whole floor is wet because there is now shower curtain.

Definitely the area is not the best, as others have pointed out, but still walking distance from everything you'll do in Dambulla so it's not too bad (I'd probably walk back while there is still light, though). Food is alright and reasonably priced (about 1500 rupees for a dinner for 2 with beer). The day tour the husband organised for... More

The approach to Sunflower was rather off putting, narrow laneway off main road with old shack homes, street dogs and in a poor area. Wonder what I was getting myself into. My room was in newer building on top floor, very clean, small balcony where I could sit outside. Family just lovely and friendly. Food very fresh, simple but tasted... More

Being that many of the places in the lonely planet book were a bit pricey we decided to check out this option. We had one of the 1,500 Rs per night rooms. The bed and pillows may have been a bit hard, but the fan was good and the hot water was nice after a hike up Sigiriya. The dinner... More

though we just spent one night there, i found the room is unbelievably valuable! unfortunately, for us, backpackers, we didnt try the home-cooking dishes. i recommend the cute white building with 4 rooms. a little expensive than other bunglow rooms, but have a better view. great location also!
