Clean room, Best food, and Great family.
We spent 3 night in this nice house.
Mother made us Sri lanka food. It was absolutely delicious.

Father is such a kindness person.
i assure you that his advice will be helpful to you.

I recommend Safari tour too. That was amazing. There ware a lot of Elephants.
We had really good time with them.
We will come back again!!!

We are 4girls. Stayed 3nits4days. Cozy. cleanly nice room! Hot shower. Fan. Own Balcony.

Dada owner offered a day tour for us where we wanted heading to.
They make nicely n kindly the tour by a nice car due to inconveniently transportation by bus n train .
We went to Sigiriya,jeep safari (u will see heaps of massive elephants n baby )I put pictures of view,Polonnaruwa, golden temple,teeth temple, Trincomelee marble beach,herbal garden, they recommend what is the best to do or see for you:)

Although mum makes food was so nice!! Brekky n dinner if u wish they make what u want.
She made us do love Sri Lankan foods!!

I really recommend this guest house!! If you are going to Sigiriya or so. You base just this house in Dambulla. Cost much cheaper than tuktuk!!
And tuktuk driver also take you everywhere famous. But they give you too many options that you would be willing to do n makes you confuse.
as far as I know .they charge you after a lot. So if u like to go around . definitely take dada 's ride!!
Worth it!!
I really wanna go back to this house! Good to meet nice people!!
I want u to feel what I felt:)

Enjoy the trip!!

Great short term stay solution, comfy rooms, great food and great hosts. Family is very nice and Mrs. is a great cook. They have a little restaurant in the house and that was the best food I have eaten in Sri Lanka! Everything was so great that we stayed one noght more! Didn't wanna leave at all.

This place made us feel like home. We has such a warm feeling of this place, this family.
A real smile, a good service, everything can be arranged for you. Every question as an answer.
We feel like leaving friends.
Also Sigiriya can be visited in half an hour by tuktuk, and you can walk to the Golden temple and rock temple.
We will come back.

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 of rice and curry was good and so was the breakfast. Maybe a bit overpriced for the breakfast. It was an easy walk to the entrance of the cave temples. Defineately a good place to stay if you are not concerned about being in the centre of town. It's not like there is much to do there anyways as most people come for the rock cave and Sigiriya.

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!

Room Tip: the cute white building is good!!!

Being right now here, so excellent to comment. The location is great as its just close to the temple and to everything. You can just jump off the bus when you see the golden buda and go walking.
The rooms are very clean and there's warm water, they are painting the building right now. I'm in one of the upper level rooms for 2200 R a night which is very good and they just made me breakfast when I arrived.
Service is excellent and the owners very nice and helpful. Great place.
