“Watch out.....”
Reviewed 1 May 2014

Stayed for two nights whilst visiting the cultural triangle of Sigiriya, Dambulla and Polonnaruwa.
The staff were ann very friendly and helpful, the food was varied and of a good standard...but the rooms were basic and un-clean, the fridge in our room was rusting and the water pressure and temperature was variable.
Dinner finishes at 9pm, as hinted by lights switching off in the dining area.
Oh...and remember to keep doors and windows closed at all times, just in case the local monkeys decide to explore your room...
Would stay again, but maybe complain and get a better room

We spent 2 days in this hotel in december. The food and restaurant area was great but rooms were a little basic, with cracks on the ceiling. Geographically speaking the hotel stands just at the crossroads between the way to Polonnaruwa and the one to Sygiria when coming from Dambulla, which makes it a perfect location to explore the region provided you have a private vehicle.

The location of the hotel is really good. The staff are always ready to help. However, the rooms aren't very clean and the water pressure is low. There were ants all over the room and the beds aren't very comfortable. They really need to upgrade their facilities. I wouldn't recommend others to this place.

We stayed for one night and that was enough. The food was very poor in quality especially the breakfast. The bread tasted like as it was 2-3 days old and there was no any choice . We were forced to eat what ever was given. The swimming pool was not cleaned and as we were the only guests at that time the hotel staff was not bothered to attend to it. The staff is not so proffesional.
In conclusion it is not value for money. There are lot of other good hotels in Dambulla. So avoid Eden gardens at all cost.

Nice place in a green well kept area. Large rooms with corridors in a complex which reminds me more a school then a hotel. Furniture that could tell of better days. Part of the staff were not too cooperative and there was hot water problem...Breakfast is the only advantage there...Try another place...

Room Tip: I would recomend another place to stay...

Due to a mix up at another hotel we unfortunately ended up here. Unfriendly staff, but the worst thing was the bed and pillows. The bed felt as though we were just lying on coil springs. We could feel every spring poking into our bodies through the thin mattress cover. The pillows were also exceptionally lumpy as though they had been washed and the filling had clumped together. The bathroom was very stinky, the food poor. All in all we couldn't wait to leave.
