    I first want to thank the owner and her son for being so amazingly helpful. While at the resort she helped us find an excellent guide plus driver to take us where we wanted to go. The Sundaras Resort is in an excellent location, and the staff are very friendly and accommodating. The rooms are kept very clean and comfortable. The free WiFi is readily available. Meals are well priced and quite good. I would highly recommend this resort to anyone vacationing to Sri Lanka.

    The main reson we choose Sundaras Resort was because of the location and the price.But our Expectations were Exceeded. We were welcome with a fruit cocktail. staff were very friendly! Our rooms were very clean.First we thought the food was expensive but not after we receive our dishes on our table.Overall perfect Hotel. we would recommend for anyone. It is not a 5 star hotel but the service is better than 5 star.

    It was located right next to Dambulla Golden Temple and was half the price off other hotels in the area

    It was pretty much what I expected for the money, the bed was a little uncomfortable, and in my parents room the mattress was 8 inchs smaller than the bed. Personally I struggled putting the mosquito net on in a decent way, as the bed is quite low, the sides of the net laid on the bed meaning if your use to sleeping anywhere near the edge of the bed you get a face full of net. The toilet did flush but the tank did not fill up so you had to manually put some water in there (the jet next to the toilet made this easy enough) but the flush had almost zero power behind it, and when I first arrived the toilet had a ball of black hair in it and my parents room had no toilet paper. Even though we were made to wait 30 minutes before we could get in the rooms (what where they doing?) we arrived well past the 12:00pm check in time at 4:00pm, so the wait should not have been needed. The shower did not get hot either, and my parents room had a big problem with ants in the bathroom, although there shower and toilet did work. BEWARE: DO NOT USE THE HOTELS DRIVER!!! We went for a meal out at one of the nicer hotels in the area, and used the Sundaras driver to come and collect us afterwards, now this was partly our own fault for:- A. Not asking the price before hand. (We would never had used them at we know the price) and B. Making a mistake of which hotel we were at, an honest mistake but we were treated as if we had done it on purpose! For what possible reason we would want to sit and wait an extra 25 minutes because the taxi is at the wrong hotel, I do not know but that is how we were made to feel. All in all it took 1 hour for what should have been 30 minutes drive (they counted the time from the moment I called for them to pick us up until we were dropped back at the hotel, not how a normal taxi service works.) We were only 8km away from the Hotel but we had mistakenly thought we were at a different hotel 2kms further down the road.

    The pictures, the price and the reality of Sundaras was completely different. The good points were the hotel's location was very close to the Rock Temple walking distance. The workers were very willing helpful and allowed us to check out late. The food was not bad.

    The bad points were the rooms were of a very low standard, the bathroom smelt. There were cockroach wings on the bed and the ground. The room was not very clean and the decor was very poor. For this price in Thailand or Malaysia you would get a really high standard of Hotel.

    The place is a dump! They advertise a restaurant and buy take away for you, which was disgusting! They can't keep drinks cold! There is no water pressure. I ran out of water while having a shower! We checked out after one night and we were booked in for two, it was better to forfeit the money than stay one more night there! If you. Have a choice find somewhere else to stay! They didn't even make up our rooms!

    The location

    Manager unfriendly man working near the room all the day ,starting 6am! Breakfast very poor.

  • Family with children

    Fairly large triple room

    1. Location is far away from Dambulla and Sigiriya. You must have a vehicle at your disposal 2. Bathroom was wiered. There was an instant water heater which was not heating water properly. 2 out of the 3 bulbs in the bathroom were fused and never replaced. There was a huge opening in the wall thru which mosquitoes were easily entring the room. 3. The room was poorly lit with no windows. 4. Mosquito net was not fitting the bed propoerly and creating trouble in the night 5. No TV in the room 6. No food in the so called restaurent and lizards wondering here and there 7. Unfriendly staff at front desk. 8. Credit card did not work.I was made to travel to Dambulla town to find a bank to get some cash and pay my bill, which delayed our departure by an hour that morning 9. No propoper Tax invoice was given. The so called invoice given did not have the hotel name, number, address on it. Though I was charged the tax amunt I am not sure if it was paid to the Sri Lankan government! 10. Don't go for this one just for the sake of saving some $$$

    We stayed with our 5 year old daughter and 70year old aunt and all enjoyed our stay. The staff is wonderful and very helpful in making plans for day trips Dambulla is a great town about a 4-5 hour drive to Colombo. We are already planning our next trip to Sri Lanka and will gladly stay here and plan day trips to the other towns. We can not speak highly enough of the friendlyness of the staff they made our stay very enjoyable!! :0)

    The location is perfect for visiting the city's historic sites and of the area sites ( around 60-70 km) as well. The staff do their best to please the guests.

    The price was too much for a basic a/c room, the same with the charge for dinner. Just outside of the room that I got there was a balcony where meals were served, sometimes it was too noisy for me.

    We really liked how well we were looked after by the staff, some of whom spoke really good English. It was definitely a cut above staying at a hostel but not as expensive as one of the luxury hotels. We felt relaxed and safe there. The room was nice and the position very good for going to the Cave Temple (which is fabulous, esp. with a guide) even if a touch out of town. They were generous in that the included breakfast was good and they kept us in bottled water during our stay. And we had tea-making facilities in our room, which was definitely a bonus. They organised a driver for us at what seemed a more reasonable price than we had had to pay elsewhere.

    This hotel was probably a touch expensive for Sri Lanka. I think I would not have minded paying the room price so much if the restaurant had been more in line with the sorts of prices we normally paid. Even though the room was great, don't expect to find things like tvs or fridges in it.

    It was really good. Its starts with a nice welcom. The stuff is very helpful and try to do everything, that you getting comft. They also do the organising of day trips around this area. If you leaving they gonna give you a lift to the busstation. Also the food they gonna prepare in the kitchen is lovely. If I have to go back, defently I would stay there again.

    Sundaras Resort was a good base for visiting important historic locations and the manager was extremely helpful in arranging transport and giving advice and suggestions ref. visits. All the staff were friendly and helpful; meals were very good and freshly prepared.

    The best thing about Sundaras Resort was the staff. They were so friendly and helpful and we felt very welcomed there. Rooms were nice, big, clean and quiet. The location is perfect, it was about 5 minutes walk from the cave temple. We had really great time there. They have their own restaurant with a good breakfast that you can have in the garden.

    The hotel and the food was more expensive than other places in Sri Lanka (but it was the same everywhere in Dambulla). We stayed only one night, we tried a restaurant nextdoor to have some local dinner and they had similar prices as our place.
