1/5 Terrible

I booked this hotel by mistake. I thought I was booking a hotel in Wisconsin with a similar name, Sundara spa. I paid the travel protection fee and when I realized I booked a hotel out of the country minutes after I made the reservation, Expedia would not cancel this or immediately credit my account. It’s been three days and still no credit. I had to file a claim minutes after the mistaken booking. Then I booked a hotel in WI using Expedia again and when my daughter went to check in, they told her they had to charge her even though the room was paid in full bc I wasn’t physically there, she is 27, and I spoke with the hotel confirming that yes, I purchased the room and could easily show my cc and photo idea. They refused this and charged my daughter. I’m extremely unhappy with Expedia.

A Satisfactory Stay
I had booked the hotel for three nights from 7th to 10th Feb 2020. The hotel is well located on the main road with easy accessibility to public transport. The room was however without any phone/intercom, the shower head was broken and there were no chairs to sit on. the lady at the reception was, however very helpful and courteous and resolved most issues albeit after a while. The swimming pool is rather small and shallow, 5ft being the deepest. No place for an exercise swim. The breakfast was well prepared and offered good choice of continental and Sri Lankan cuisine. Overall a satisfactory stay, thanks mainly to the lady at the reception.

Sundaras is a little gem in the heart of Dambulla, great location for sightseeing and the hotel gives you a ‘real’ experience of Sri Lanka. Staff were amazing and at hand 24 hrs. Big thanks to Sean, Liz, Sindhu, Asita, Tito, Saman (our driver) and the cleaning staff. They really ensured we got the best experience out of our trip. We planned our excursions through the hotel, really well organised, although a little pricey hiring driver with entrance fees. Good range of food although not as spicy as we would’ve liked. Overall had a great time here.
