“Great food - did not stay at this place”
Reviewed 21 June 2014 via mobile

We ate at the Heritage restaurant when we stayed in Dambulla. We highly recommend the Sri Lankan food since the place is very cheap and the food is delicious. We highly recommend the Rice and Curry as well as the Devilled Mushrooms.

Stayed June 2014, travelled as a couple

They know how to treat customers: with respect!
A high level of service, beautiful rooms, it was for me the firs time that I showered with such a beautiful view!
The food was great, the breakfast was outstanding in a beautiful environment!
Very quiet hotel!
the most beautiful location I have ever seen, in the middle of the nature!

The room was big, clean bathroom, nice service. Great Sri Lanka breakfast. Location is great, within walking distance from the caves. There is a nice porch where you can sit outside in the evening. I could see the Heritage network hotels in other tourist cities in Sri Lanka too, on my next visit I will consider booking with them. Good budget accommodation.

The service in the restaurant was the worst we experienced during our 16 day holiday to Sri Lanka, the staff didn't know what was available from the menu, despite not being busy it took an unacceptable amount of time to greet us, to take drinks and food orders and to bring the ordered items to our table. They failed to display the welcoming and friendly nature that we had become accustomed to throughout Sri Lanka.

Our bathroom was dirty, there were no towels and no hot water, and the room was not serviced - the hygiene paper was not replenished.

It is very close to the road and there is constant traffic throughout the night - earplugs and a sleep mask are essential.

There is nothing to do in Dambulla once you've been to the caves - we recommend staying in Sigiriya instead as there is lots more choice of places to stay and eat, and it looks to be much more peaceful.

Room Tip: We were in Room 103 (there are just 4 rooms) - it is big with a A/C but, as with all the rooms, it i...

Photos are deceiving. Our last night in Sri Lanka was spent at this roadside stop. We paid 72$/night. I found out later that a friend had paid 18$/night for the same exact room. For 18$/night it is a deal. For 72$ it is a dump. The rooms are musty, the carpets are filthy as are the walls. There is no hot water at all. The staff was very nice but otherwise, unless you are paying the 18$ rate, I would avoid this place.

Room Tip: Make sure that you are not overpaying during high season.

My wife and I spent 4 nights there. The hotel is located by the road, which is quite busy. However, this provides a authentic feeling for Sri Lanka, and the rooms are quiet at night. Staff was extremely helpful (finding a driver, etc.) and providing excellent service. Through booking.com we were able to book at attractive rates. Due to its location, Dambulla is excellent for visiting Sigiriya, Anuradhapura, Mineriya NP and Pollonoruwa. Don't miss the cave temples, which are just a short walk away from the hotel.

A small hotel with only 4 rooms and no facility. Room is big, but along the main road.

Food in the restaurant is ok.

However, considering as a hotel under CHC chain, it is not good enough. However, the price is not too high.
