Hotel situated close to Dambulla - Kandy highway and we were expecting sleepless nights because of truck sounds....But No, the room was almost soundproof once door was closed. We stayed in room 102 which was very spacious, even the bathroom was spacious. The drain of shower was not draining at all. I told the person at Reception and that was...

We went there for lunch before going to the cave temples. The chicken curry and rice comes with an array of other sides much like everywhere else, daal, coconut sambar, fish curry, aubergine, all very tasty but all very spicy! We shared it between two and it was more than enough for a light lunch. I have Indian food at...

The Heritence Dambula had been on my list for a long time; my daughter had been there some years before and had loved it; so did we. Everything about the hotel is excellent: the location, the service, the design and, of course, the monkeys. Our room had a jacuzzi and shower looking out over the lake. As soon as we...

Firstly this is NOT A RESORT by any stretch of the imagination (as advertised on booking.com). It's 5 rooms opening directly on to a verandah overlooking the Dambulla main road. You hear the exhausts and squeaky wheels of every truck going by, as well the suprising number of noises that happen from 5:30am (was that an ice-cream truck? ) That...

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,...

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...

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...

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...
