The host family is absolutely lovely. Their kindness to me as a solo traveller made the visit to Dambulla even more enjoyable. The room was clean and though not large, had a comfortable double bed, kettle and mosquito net (though I saw none while I was there). Air conditioning unit was new and very efficient. The bathroom seemed new and was a wet room style, with very good shower unit. The breakfast was great and served at whatever time I asked (very early in order to get to Sigurya before the sun got too hot). The hotel is within walking distance of the famous rock temples, near the wall painting museum, a short distance from Sigurya and just over an hour by car to Polonnaruwa. It is an ideal place to use as a centre for those three visits. The lady who runs the hotel speaks good English. She will book bus trips if asked. I was in one of the front rooms which is close to the road, which could be noisy at times. I believe the back rooms are quieter. However, I found I was not disturbed greatly and slept well.
