Situated about 10 minute walk from the Golden Temple, this was a really well located hotel. There are two sets of rooms, the older ones which are located near reception and the newer ones overlooking the pool and gardens- I think the newer ones, with chairs on the private balcony are nicer. Good breakfast, with fruit, toast and pancakes as...

We used this hotel as a base to visit parts of the cultural triangle, it is an excellent small clean hotel ran by knowledgeable young staff, they are full of local knowledge to assist you in where to travel. The hotel does run tours of the cultural sites and the transport they use is clean and reliable, and the drivers...

Great location, great service, beautiful property! The pool looked lovely. The rooms were new and clean and well though out. The staff was so kind and helpful. Check in was lovely, offered drinks and cold towels while we waited by the pool bar. The dining lady was so kind and helpful to bring our meal to our room when my...

Building work should mean they shouldn't even open the block for paying customers. It is a disgrace how they don't communicate with paying guests or apologise. We had to complain as it ruined our 2nd night stay. Electric went off without telling us, no water pressure for a shower, the whole noise and smell and dust was a disgrace! It...

I had such a good time at Sundaras Resort. You get the chance to meet and talk to local people, to eat authentic Sri Lankan food and the the staff around was supporting me as much as possible(organizing drivers,tours...). Also I had a really nice room with view over the pool, rain shower and AC. I definitely recommend to climb...

The staff are friendly on both bar and reception, the beds were fairly comfy, and the pool was cool and relaxing. The bar is well stocked, and the hotel is located very close to the popular attractions of Sigiriya, Polonnaruwa and only around 2 minutes away from the Rock and Golden Temples. The wifi was inconsistent but ok around the...

Just arrived! Building work going on is very noisy. Doors don't fit so mosquito heaven !!! Pool and bar are lovely. Not sure it makes up for lack of landscaping. Free breakfast advertised but apparently not free???? Additional problem of no driver accommodation so have to pay extra for that. Would leave if we hadn't already paid. Hoping a few...

I am actually gutted that we only stayed at the Sundaras for one night. The place and it's staff are absolutely wonderful. Nothing was too much trouble and they organised absolutely everything for us. There is a very welcoming and homely feeling to this place. Like nothing else I have experienced in Sri Lanka. The room was great, the food...

We spent one night in Sundaras and I have to say it was at the same time the cheapest and the best room out of our four hotels in Sri Lanka! The room was big and modern and the staff was great and helpful! The location is perfect for visiting the cave temples and works also well as a base...

I absolutely loved Sundaras. The staff was warm and welcoming. I really wished we stayed two nights but had a reservation elsewhere and couldn't cancel it. The food was really good. I also thought the pancakes were the best I've ever eaten (I usually don't like a western breakfast). The best treat was the pool with swim up bar. The...
