4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

We stayed here for two nights while we were visiting the local temples, ancient kingdoms and Sigiriya Rock. The hotel is peaceful, with the majority of buildings being single storey. The grounds are lovely, much of which is covered in trees and grass. There is a lovely swimming pool which was refreshing after a long day doing tourist visits. We... More

The entrance looks underwhelming, with a poorly maintained reception area. And the building work at the new wing (near 2nd pool) also creates some messy views. But apart from that mostly pluses, all keeping in mind the 3-star price level: * Spacious chalet-style room. Well isolated from the heat hence limited windows but that's common in the area. * Good...

This was satisfactory as the room and bathroom were large and clean. The buffet meal and breakfast were both good. The swimming pool was lovely. The only problem is that the bathroom floor became very slippery when wet.

First I should state that the trip here was in August 2013, though I was only able to select up to May 2014 from the drop down box, however, this review accurately reflects our experiences during the stay there. When contacting hotels in Sri Lanka the Kassapa Lions Rock was certainly the best in responding to e-mails, always coming back... More

Spent two nights at Kassapa. The place was nice, the room was spacious with aircon. The pool is really great and has an excellent vue to the rock from a distance. The quality of the food served in the restaurant is very good, however the a la carte-selection is quite limited. The buffet, I am sure, is fine but way... More

This is well located for the main historic sites. We stayed two nights, and it was probably the best hotel in our tour. Accommodation in comfortable bungalows, large rooms - a bath!! and sitting areas. Nice pool and grounds. The hotel caters to large tour parties and was busy the first night - the dinner is a buffet, and there... More

We have just returned from a three night stay at the Kassapa Lions Rock Hotel, while visiting the cultural Triangle. We arrived three hours late after various flight delays and the manager ensured breakfast was kept open to allow us to have refreshments – it was most welcome and very kind. The rooms were air-conditioned and spotlessly clean. The staff... More

Having stayed in the city for 2 days we were taken to Kassapa Lions during the Sri Lankan New Year days .... This Place is located in a very quiet and jungle looking environment and the 7 wonder of the world Sigiriya is a clear sight from the Swimming Pool.
