We stayed here for one night. We had a double fan room, which was fine but the bathroom was not that clean (there was a sanitary pad wedged in the window grill and a bit of grime in the corners) and unfortunately the mosquito net didn't fit over the bed properly. The owners were very nice, but it's pretty noisy location, and about 1km out of town so not ideal.

Stayed here as a base for checking out the 'cultural triangle' for 4 nights. The room was very clean, basic but comfortable. There is aircon but we just used the fan, and just about managed. There was hot water and ensuite bathroom. Wifi worked in the room for us and also in the garden.

The owner and his family are very friendly and helpful in organising anything you might need. There is a local bus stop directly outside for trips to Sigiriya, and the other sites. It takes about 45mins to walk to the caves, and about 15mins to the supermarket. There is a bottle shop just opposite for beers, or a bar next door.

The breakfast was lovely...omelette, toast, fruit and tea. You can also order an evening meal...so long as you want fried rice. It was delicious!

Overall was an enjoyable place to stay, and would definitely recommend.

We stayed here for 5 days and used it as a base for the cultural triangle. The room was clean although a bit warm at times (air con was available but we elected not to use it). The owners are fantastic and were very helpful in suggesting places off the beaten track. They helped us organise a scooter so that we could go places on our own. It is at the northern end of town so makes heading up to the outer towns easier.
There is a fantastic bar right next door with great food and good prices for both food and beverage, pool table and big screen tv.
Word of warning about the Dambulla Caves - if you go as an independent traveller make sure you get your ticket to the caves at the bottom (there are no signs to say so) as you can't get it at the top.
Really enjoyed staying here and would highly recommend it. Do bargain though as the price can be flexible depending on how full they are.

I stayed at Takeshi Inn for two nights. I love that they had some tables, benches and a hammocks in the garden. I wasn't feeling well one day, so I was resting at the garden and played with the little granddaughter for a while. The owner and his family were really friendly and helpful.

The room was basic with mosquito nets but it was clean. It was a bit hot when I was there but I chose fan-only. I think the room would be cooler if I kept the windows opened. Wifi and hot-shower were available all day.

Me and my girlfriend spent 2 nights at Takeshi Inn and had a pretty nice stay there.
For $25USD a night we were given a double room with a mosquito net, plus fan and ensuite bathroom. The room was nice and clean and it wasnt that noisy either considering the main road is only 20m away.
The location isnt amazing though as it is about a 10-15min walk into town, however Dambulla town isn't a great place and there werent really any great budget places to eat so its not really worth a walk in anyway. For food nearer to the accommodation there is a small place across the road where you can get a Kottu or a fried rice for just a couple of hundred rupees and there is a wine store where you can get some very cheap beer and spirits.
The one negative thing we have to say about the place is that although we found the staff to be really nice and helpful, we didnt appreciate the owner trying to sell us an expensive trip to Sigiriya with the tuk tuk driver who just dropped us off. Considering we are his customers, even in a budget accommodation our interests should be his priority but even though i kept insisting that we would get the bus which was 1000x cheaper he still kept trying to negotiate.

A tuk tuk from the bus station to the guest house costs around 100r.

To get to Sigiriya Rock you can catch a bus from outside the guest house although it may be worth walking into town like we did to try and jump on sooner as there is a good chance the bus will have filled up by the time it reaches Takeshi Inn and you will have to stand up for the 40min journey (which wont be comfortable for anyone above 6ft). The bus cost 35r per person one way.
