Yes, the Hyd - Belum distance certainly is slightly on the higher side to be covered both ways in a day, specially if u consider the current condition of the bangalore highway. Besides that u will require abt 2 hours for the cave visit.
For night halt u have 2 options - Tadipatri or Kurnool. Though Tadipatri is really close to belum, just 35 km, but it is a reallyl small town with very limited option of hotels and food, and u will find it difficult to get a good one with a proper car parking place.
Kurnool, that way, is a much better option. U have a fairly decent Punnami (APTDC) there alongwith a few others. The distance to belum from there is about 180km via gooty - tadipatri. So u can have your night halt at kurnool and go and come back from belum the next day. And if u are staying in Punnami, don't go by what the reception guys tell u about the route to belum (via banganapalle - betamcherla). We had the set-back on our 1st mission bcoz we followed that route.
Forgot to mention in my last post, that if u are going via gooty, look out for the remnants of the wall of the gooty fort on your left hand side atop a hill just after getting out of gooty.

don't miss it.
Also on left there is a large kumbhkarna's tourist place midway (watchout for monkeys).
Do plan for safe return jouney it's quite long trip (650kms) end to end from b'lore.
On Site eating: Not many options -- There is AP tourism hotel at this place (near the budha statue) which serves plate meals (decent and good as long as you like rice+pappu (daal), + usual junk food counter (colddrinks+pepsi+...) at the main entrance.
