“Chamara guest house”
Reviewed 8 May 2014

Rooms had very basic amenities, but were clean. The owners of the place were very kind and helpful.
The place Dambulla does not have many tourist attractions, except for the Buddhist rock temple. This temple is located at a walkable distance from the guesthouse.
Prices are economical. It costed ~3000 SLR for one triple occupancy room.

I think this place has improved in the last year. The owner and his wife were very friendly and helpful. The room could have been cleaner but having stayed in 9 different hotels in sri Lanka I'd say this is a problem at most of them. The food was nice if a bit salty.

in the 1st few minutes, the place looks OK, the manager friendly and nice rooms. but on 2nd look the rooms turn out to be unclean and bathroom especially dirty and at night time gets full of cockroaches around the toilet and sink. we had to avoid going in there by night. we planned on staying a couple of nights but left immediately in the morning.
better stay away..!

Room Tip: good location near to the cave temple

There is a big selection of guesthouses on Matale Road, the main road, close to the Dambulla Cave Temple. Front the outside, this one looked great... the price was ok, but they charged me more, I think because I arrived with a driver, than the other guests I've meet there. I looked at the room quickly, it looked ok. When I went back in the room, in the bathroom there was about 17 cockroaches close the the shower drain, right next to the toilet - some alive, some dead! See the pictures I post. Disgusting, dirty! So no toilet or shower for me that evening. Also, on the room, the sheet used as a curtain is see thru, so you cant really changed in private with open lights as the window has a view in the front desk area and the guest lobby/dinner table. The food was ok, the people I met there were very nice, owner ok, but the quality of guesthouse and cleanliness is not worth it. Go somewhere else. Chamara Guest House has great location, that's it. At dinner, we didn't finish some fruits, we also killed some bugs with a papaya, next morning at breakfast, the same piece of papaya was served, still with the bugs. Check what you eat, check where you sleep, put the mosquito net. I don't suggest you stay there. The only good things, that many other guesthouse has, it's the location. Owner friendly - but bargain all prices.

Room Tip: Ask for a room in the back building. Just make sure to make a really good inspection before taking t...
