First of all, the pool is AWESOME! That was one of the highlights of our stay. Also, it is located quite close to sigiriya, which was the main purpose of our visit. The staff is nice. We booked a standard room which really was not great... The room itself was OK, but the bathroom was a dissappointment. Nice Place is... More

My girlfriend and I stayed here for one night while visiting Lions Rock (Sigiriya) during a roundtrip on Sri Lanka. The bungalows were big, clean, separate bathrooms and wellfunctioning aircondition. The big bonus, however, is the pool, which is clean, quite new and a great way to chill during the worst of the heat. The restaurant on the premise serves... More

We, ( 3 friends) stayed in Nice place hotel on the 25th of july ( my birthday). We were on a tour so it was only for one night. We would have loved to stay longer. A very beautiful quiet place with a fantastic swimmingpool!. I even had a big cake with my name on for my birthday!! Super!

Good rooms in a nice garden. The rooms are spacious and clean, and all have a private balcony. The food is good, the pool is great and the people are very friendly. The location is very good for visiting Sigiriya and Dambulla.

Spent our first two nights here on our 10 day tour of Sri Lanka. Although the rooms were fairly basic and the bathrooms dated we found here the best freshly cooked food we experienced out of all the hotels we stayed in during our stay in Sri Lanka, and the friendliest staff. Pool, wifi, clean rooms, only let down by... More

What a Nice Place. Our room was really big, clean and a great place to watch the wild life. We stayed 2 nights as part of a 6 day tour. This was really the first place we experienced Sri Lankan food and we weren't disappointed. They laughed at me as I was saying the food was superb whilst blowing my... More

Great place, amazing staff! Stayed one night, checked in late -- after touring Sigiriya... Loved the bungalows: spacious, clean, hot water, wifi in the "lobby"... and at 7,000 rs a night who could complain? Amazing pool area... so secluded, feels really private. Breakfast is included. Overall -- great place, and would highly recommend! Definitely a hidden "gem" :)

It's a pretty basic place, large rooms, somewhere between luxury and budget, it's a bit of a confused atmosphere. There's a decent sized pool as well. Located quite close to the lake, you can rent a couple of bikes and head out around the area, but make sure you head back before the sunsets as the surrounding areas aren't so... More

Value for money. Nice pool if that's on your list of needs. A bit out of town so will need wheels to get there. The dinner is a banquet for 1000 rupee...ok if you are a big eater...I'm not, and there were no alternate options. I was bitten by an ant...look out for those nasty critters!

We loved our stay here and found the staff, the rooms, the pool and the food fantastic! We stayed for two nights during our travels and it was our favourite hotel on the 16 day trip. A real plus to have such a stunning pool. We had one standard triple room and one single room for our party of four... More
