                    The surroundings were beautiful and we saw lots of wildlife during our stay. All the staff were friendly, helpful and polite.

                    We booked this hotel on the assumption it was 'central' to the Cultural Triangle. However, Amaya Lake is very isolated so you need transport to go anywhere off the hotel grounds. Unfortunately due to the rain we were cut off for a few days as the roads in were flooded. A lovely location if you want to relax but not if you want to sightsee and explore Sri Lanka properly. The buffet food was over priced and although there was a lot of choice it was basically canteen food. The A La Carte menu was very limiting, especially if you wanted a light lunch. Drinks were expensive, lager cost over 3 times we paid in other bars in Sri Lanka. Also, no free internet access, cost 20p for 1 minute!

                    The hotel is situated close to the Amaya Lake and in a scenic environment with mountains at the back of the hotel. However, avoid staying during rainy season as the lake gets flooded and this cuts off the hotel from the rest of the city as water overflows on the road. The staff are friendly and helpful, the food is good. We requested for a change in room and it was done promptly.

                    We were first given room no 23 ( indepenedent chalet), however as soon as we entered the room there was a foul smell of rotting garbage. When we opened the taps, dirty water appeared. We came back from swimming and found that fuse had blown off and there was no light and an electrician was mending the fuse.

                    3.8

                    Bad staff attitude. The hote is not in Dambulla but over 10km away from Dambulla. The food is average. The prices for internet are ridiculous. The hotel reservation never responded to my emails to confirm that the Booked.net reservation was received by the hotel - in the end I needed to call them internationally. They made a mistake with our hotel bill calculation. Some times they gave us water, sometimes they forgot. The bathroom shower and sink needed to be repaired... the list of complaints I have are very long and this is considered a 4 star hotel! It is hopeless.

                    Beautiful well designed comfortable resort.

                    The location next to Kandalama Lake as well as the sprawling green grounds of the hotel make it a relaxing place to stay at. If you are a birdwatcher, the lake and hotel ground make it a perfect spot for some birding (I ticked off the endemic Ceylon Grey Hornbill right outside the restaurant). The chalet was spacious (though there appears to be little or no difference between deluxe or standard chalets - we took one of each) and clean though it was obviously a little worn around the edges.

                    The fact that there is no choice for early dinner. The restaurant and room service only start at 7:30pm, late for people who are used to dining at 6pm or families with young children with early bedtimes.

                    the location.

                    The staff don't seem very well trained, but they are friendly and try to help. There are not much dining options, and the food was too expensive for the quality and choice provided.

                    This is an amazing hotel with excellent and charming staff. Nice and cozy cottages are spread over the big area right next to the lake shore. There is a huge swimming pool. An excellent with a huge variety of food is provided. The daily dinner buffet for USD 22 ist delicious. The location of the hotel is ideal, since all major sights in the Dambulla/Sigirya area are easy to be reached.

                    Absolutely nothing to complain about.

                    The hotel is eco-friendly and there are a lot of different animals on the territory, it's a great pleasure to watch them. The chalet and the pool just magnificent!!

                    The wifi and the internet in the business centre is very poor.
