    • Older travelers

      Verandah/ restaurant area was comfortable and had a great view of the rock

      Air-con didn't work bed hard as a rock dark room no hot water terrible accom for driver

    • Couple

      The location next to sigiriya rock, as well as the view from the pool. Dinner buffet was great as well and had a good value for money.

      Cleanliness of the bed sheets as well as the company of frogs and lizards in the room but I guess that's part of being in the jungle.

    • Group of friends

      Location is excellent, just 10 walking minutes to the Lion Rock. The staff is extremely friendly. Very nice breakfast.

      Despite the excellent location, it's overpriced. For the rate I paid, I would have expected a clean bathroom.

    • Family with children

      Nice swimming pool with direct veiw of Lion Rock.Trees are all around you .

      You can hear the wild monkeys walking on the roof. One dog was standing opposite the door of my child's room. Since it is in a jungle area, management of insects and mosquitoes is poor. No available Arabic TV channels. The floor is painted with red that stains your feet when you walk over it. For Muslims, there is no clear singe for having Halal food.Far from the main city.

    • Single

      the location

      bathroom instalation very old

    • Group of friends

      The room was clean and staff were very helpful ... good hotel if you like to resorts

      the location was close to Sigiriya Rock but the road is so wild and through a lot of villages ... not good for night driving

    • Couple

      Proximity to Sigiriya Rock.

      This place is run down and seriously needs updating, cleaning, and some general overhaul. It was kinda gross. We didn't want to touch the sides of the shower stall while showering. Very over-priced.

    • Group of friends

      The location was perfect for exploring the local sites. The Rock was a beautiful view from behind the swimming pool. The staff were really friendly and the food was superb!!! We could not find fault with anything.

    • Older travelers

      Fantastic location for climbing Sigiriya. Great food, with as much as you can eat.

    • Older travelers

      fantastic location, courteous staff overall a great experience.

      buffet price are very high, ala carte price also too high. I feel the food price should be brought down.

    • Family with children

      Its location being near to Sigriya rock

      As mentioned in separate email they have charged twice the amount and to add insult to injury have stop even responding. Very callous if not actually a fraud

    • Family with children

      Fantastic location.Very friendly staff.Excellent food.

      Bear in mind that Service charge and taxes add upto over 20% to actually quoted Room charges which is a surprise.Very old fashioned billing system that has to be more transparent.

    • Couple

      Very comfortable rooms, helpful staff, scenic hotel and very tastefully done

      Slightly isolated and interior location (though the view to Sigiriya rock is amazing), Lack of vegetarian options in food

    • Couple

      the view of lion rock from the bar and pool area were amazing, the room was spacious and very comfortable and the food, which was buffet, was absolutely lovely. the staff very friendly and helpful. they claim to be eco friendly which appears to be the case from what we could see. the surrounding area is beautiful with early wake up calls of wild monkeys running over the roof of the building. a very relaxing and enjoyable stay.

      paying for wi fi was quite annoying since its not necessary.

    • Group of friends

      decent hotel and good location to visit Sigiriya
