We spent four nights at Avinka Holiday Home. We had to leave but we didn't want to. The room is big, beautiful and very clean, the bathroom is big, stylish, spotless and the shower is fantastic.Prices are really reasonable. The owners are very very friendly and helpful. The wife was extremely kind and prepared for us food for breakfast the day we had to leave early. If you ask her she can cook even for dinner or so. From Dambulla (with its astonishing caves which are 50 meters from Avinka) we went in one day to Sigiriya, in one day to Polonnaruwa (the husband gave us a drop till there as he was going there for work) and in one day to the beautiful Minneriya National Park (the Guesthouse organized for us the trip for a really convenient price). This family is really kind and they really care about you! Don't miss this place!

We loved Avinka. The room was spotlessly clean, big and stylish, the bathroom was also very big and spotless. We stayed for two nights and didn't want to leave.The owners were very friendly and full of helpful advice, they even lent us utensils and plates so we could have a picnic.The bed was comfy, with nice white linens and the air con actually worked (unlike some other places we have stayed). It's about a 10 minute walk to the dambulla cave temples, there are quite a few places to eat close by.

I was supposed to stay only 2 days at Avinka but the guest house was so great, clean, brand new, and the family so lovely that I extended my stay there. If you go to Dambulla you should definitely stay there!

This was by far one of the best guesthouses I stayed at in Sri Lanka. The owner is lovely and extremely eager to help. Her husband and her even drove me to the town and bus stop when I was making a day trip to Sigiriya. The rooms are clean and big; for the price it is a great deal! I stayed here in June 2013, and I asked if breakfast was included...I'm not sure if she makes breakfast for everyone. The potatoe curry and side dishes were amazing. She even made me dinner for me one night because all the restaurants were closed. This is a family run business and they really care about their guests!

Stayed here for 2 nights. Rooms are big, clean and very nicely built. The bed is lovely and the shower hot! The owners are very friendly and helpful and the neighbours in that area very nice. It is great to see the temple in Dambulla (it is right next door) and is just a short walk from the bus station to take the bus to see Sigiriya. Really recommend this place.

Room Tip: All the rooms are great.

We stayed only one night here, wish it could have been longer! Very friendly family, clean and big room, nice location close to the temple. And, best bed ever, we slept like babies! Would highly recommend this place to everybody, if they would serve breakfast it would be even more perfect!
