“Very dirty and stinky”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 August 2013

we are absolutely not picky and we sleep usually everywhere and are happy, but this hotel was just awful. the rooms were so dirty and it smelled awful. we had to wash our clothes afterwards because everything smelled musty. they also offered us a ayurveda massage for a special price which was very unprofessional and bad. we were glad when we could leave...

From reviews and pictures I thought this was a great place to stay. Unfortunately I was wrong. The place was filled with mosquitoes and other insects. The room is situated among foliage and trees that attract insects. With the rainy conditions, mosquitoes flourish and there's little you can do to prevent them biting you even after you spray repellents. The caretaker adopts a indifferent response to any requests. The water supply got cut off in the midst of my bath. Came back in trickle after 10 minutes. The caretaker wasn't concerned about the situation. There is no food or drink even if you wanted to pay. Strangely, there is free wi-fi but nothing else.

Room Tip: Don't let the name of the place fool you. Any other hotel nearby would be a better deal.

We spended 2 nights with my 7 friends and we were verry satisfied with services at this hotel, only their menu is verry simple and the meal with lower quality, but a lot off restaurants are in the vicinity. Location off this hotel is verry good near Sigiriya rock, Dambula and Polonaruwa

Quiet place, located a bit far from the town. The only one annoyance is monkeys. In the morning they run around the hotel and try to steal something, and also they are aggressive. The room was OK. We ordered food in the hotel and it wasn't tasty.
To stay for 1 night on your way around Sri Lanka this place is a good deal.

When we arrived here we were really happy to be told our double room would be 2000 rupees without aircon and 2500 with. We chose the without option which included driver accommodation. The room was pretty tidy except for a heap of dead ants. We had dinner with them which was unfortunately the worst and most expensive food we have had in Sri Lanka. Tasteless fried rice and bland fried noodles which we chose as they didn't have the curry and rice option available. When we went to pay in the morning the young man said the room was 2500 rupees and that he had never said it was 2000 as the day before he quoted us in USD, this was ridiculous as we don't even know what the USD conversion is so would have asked for a rupees price if he had. Both my partner and I were there and he was definitely now changing the price. Such a shame it turned out this way because it could have been a lovely place to stay. If you do stay here I suggest you pay at the start when they five you a price or get it in writing. They had also put a service charge on the 1100 rupees we paid to have awful food dumped on our table. We paid the bill he was asking for to prevent anymore confrontation but it really ruined our day.

Good budget guesthouse to stay for a night to explore Dambulla and Sigiriya for only 2500 rupees (triple room, excluding breakfast). Cleanliness was average. Be careful while walking up to the second floor rooms as the stairs are steep. Wifi switches off after 11pm and only available from 8am onwards. Shower power very weak. Ambience wise, there is a "kampong / village" feel - surrounded by greens. Good value for money for backpackers!

I spent there only one night and it was good night. Rooms were big with nice bathroom (not special, normal one). Every room has got some kind of terrace so you can sit outside and have a rest. There is a small restaurant with tasty and fresh local food (soups are great). Breakfast is western (tosts, butter, egg, jam and tea/ coffee) but you can ask about local one which is much more tasty. You can buy also a beer.
Hotel has got internet cafe with reasonable rates. There is also Wi - Fi zone but it didn't work when I was there.

Rates are low and quality is high - I strongly recommend!
