“Its a nice place”
Reviewed 5 December 2013

Property owner Chaminda was a hotelier, started his own business with 03 bed rooms almost 8 years back. His committed responsibility is THE PROOF for him to have 20+ rooms today. All his room are well planned, Eco friendly surrounding, and the newly done swimming pool add's more value to the property. He has a down to earth team, who will be at your service with a smile.

I stayed here with my friend (both girls) in August 2013.

Though I had booked the room for morning 7 am we received it little late around 9. But other than this the property is absolutely amazing. I would definitely suggest that apart from the typical touristic spots, one must spend some time at this beautiful property.
The manager/owner took special care of us as we were 2 gals traveling all by our selves. He can help negotiate price for tuk tuk for you. They even made different breakfast for me as I had develop allergies to some foodstuff that time.

All in all definitely a must stay place! :)

It was haven of tranquility, beautiful food, good service. Rooms are sparsely furnished. Rooms were very clean and air conditioned. Good location for the important historical sights and the national parks. It has a beautiful swimming pool.

Stayed here in July and had a nice stay, staff were very good and attentive and location is ideal for exploring the cultural triangle. Ended up booking a Safari thought hem as well which was amazing! never have i been so close to elephants!!

Only drawback is that apart from itself there is noowhere else close to reeally eat, but that is true of alot of Sri Lanka.

Special metion to the owner who waited in the airport 10 hours to collect us after our flight was cancelled!

We recently stayed at the Nice Bungalows in Dambulla. I felt the stay was just OK! The place was chosen by the guide we hired and it wasn't horrible but was no great shakes! The biggest featuer is the fairly large, nice looking, clean pool which my friend used and said was great! We arrived and were taken to our room, which was just ok. The bathroom was rather old and grungy around the shower and leaked water big time with each shower. Getting Hot water didn't happen, but fairly warm water was possilbe once we figured out how the crazy system worked. The staff was helpful for sure, but the first night I was starving when we came back from Sigriya Lion Rock Climb and so sat down and said i was hungry and ordered. My travel buddy said she was going swimming and would eat later. They assumed ( and you know what they say about assuming!!) that i was waiting for her to eat, which I definitely was not... so after 1 1/2 hrs of waiting i said where is my supper and they said "oh we thought you were waiting for your friend"!!! I was slightly irrtitated to say the least.... and so they said they would bring it , but it still took 30 more minutes to come!! NOT IMPRESSED! At this point the head staff, perhaps manager stepped in apologizing ++++ and he was great, very good english. He was very sorry and willing to help in any way. I think english was not great for the basic workers there at accommodation. I will say that the food was freshly made, and the next night they were very willing to just cook a nice plate full of steamed, fresh veggies for me and they were so good and right from the market! All the breakfast were so so in Sri Lanka... and getting cold toast is not too enjoyable day after day! This seems to be the norm, as well as an ömlete, is just 2 eggs broken, stired and fried most places. No veggies/ cheeze etc inside, so that was a bit wierd for me as well. Our room was clean but older looking and was again OK for the purpose but I would have enjoyed a bit more of a place at the end of a long day!

My friend and I stayed one night in September on our travels around the island. The location is great, very quiet and tranquil. The food was good and the pool great although I agree there could be mattresses on the sun lounges. The staff were very helpful. Not sure of the price as our guide made the booking but would definitely stay here again.
