This was a good hotel, good staff and a good restaurant. The pool was lovely although the pool surroundings could do with being better. The beer was expensive as with most hotels in Sri Lanka. The food was of a good standard and not overly expensive. Our only negative thoughts are that it was quite far away from the town...

I stayed three nights here, and am struggling to find positive things to say. The first room I has allocated overlooked a construction site, had half used toiletries, and pictures hanging off the wall about to fall on top of you. To be fair, they then gave me a different room the next day but except for the view of...

An oasis in a vast sea of noise and traffic, this hotel is a well located in a mango grove next to some rice fields. Rooms are spacious and well appointed, common areas are welcoming. The elevated dining area offers a beautiful view of the countryside and the pool. Breakfast was excellent.

We stayed for one night at the Thilanka resort while touring Sri Lanka. We thoroughly enjoyed this hotel with its quirky design. The approach is impressive, through groves of mango trees, giving it a nice rural feel. Because of the layout of the site, some rooms are situated a long way from the main reception/restaurant building - but the walk...

I loved this hotel. It was very cheap. It has amazing views of the town and the large Buddha. Rooms were a bit dated and the bed was too hard. But it was ok for the price. Restaurant had terrific buffets and excellent service. There is a bar enclosed in glass on the edge of the property with views all...

We stayed here for two nights while exploring Dambulla. Rooms are very large and the hotel facilities are very good. The gardens are really nice and as you are quite far from the main road it is very peaceful. Food in the hotel is good, especially the breakfast. Each night they did a buffet or you could order a la...

If you need to stay in Dambulla, do stay here. Hotel grounds are spectacular. Very lush and calming. Rooms are decent, and offer most creature comforts (heated shower, comfy bed etc etc.) however no in room wifi is a small problem. Food is not an issue(we are vegetarians) and staff were very attentive. Wifi aside, the large grounds and great...
