The hotel is comprised of little bungalows for each room. Rooms and bathrooms are large and comfortable and staff really friendly and helpful. Negative points wifi only in pool and bar areas. The food was good with a wide range of choice. The hotel is isolated if you don't have a driver, which for us was not a problem. I... More

This hotel complex is located down a dirt road away from the local settlement. There is a separate reception building, an open ended bar/ restaurant and Ayurveda massage. The rooms are individual square blocks along tree- lined paths. There is a wonderful view of Lion Rock from here which is particularly good early evening as the light catches it. Rooms... More

I would highly recommend this resort if you are planning to visit the magnificent Sigiriya. Sigiriya is an absolute must do in Sri Lanka (or indeed, in the world), but it involves a lot of walking and climbing and may well leave you quite tired. This is where Lion's Rock comes in. The setting is absolutely lovely and peaceful, with... More

The only downside is once you are on site there isn't much you can do without transport, if you are including Sigiriya ( and you should) on a tour of Sri Lanka then the hotel offers a great basecamp. The rooms are separate cabins scattered across a well kept grassy park. A central restaurant offers bar and buffet food (good... More

We travelled down a small unsealed road for a shirt distance to this hotel, felt like we were out in the bush. Reception staff met us with a cold drink and scented hand towel, the rooms were separate cottages, we enjoyed sitting on the porch watching the peacocks and squirrels. Pool large and clean, pool boy so keen to give... More

We really love the quiet and calm environment, the friendly service, comfortable rooms. The food was good, however need to improve on the spread especially the Dinner and breakfast. The Sunday lunch buffet was wonderful. We checked in on 12th July 2014 and on the following day we had a very bad experience with the supply of water services to... More

I had a wonderful stay in July and found the 'hotel' very charming indeed. Loved the setting and the feel of the place. The staff were fantastic which to me is really important. Upon arrival we were greeted with a smile and given bulath (or Belet leaf) which I found out is a traditional way to welcome someone in Sinhalese... More

We really loved it here! Has a nice laid back feel, the separate cottages had good breeze-ways, open up the shuttered window one side and the window opposite and the room was soon aired without the need for AC (although provided). Being two women travelling, we loved the generous bathroom (with bath) and also great to have a lIttle sitting... More

We spent 2 nights here in July. It really should be classified as a guest house. Nothing wrong with that, but just so that you know before you book. Think basic, not luxury hotel. It is a series of chalets, in a leafy garden, and pool. The chalets are simple, with an old fashioned TV and 2 international channels to... More

I am a solo female traveling on a tour. I had two nights here and very much enjoyed it. The location is beautiful and nice having your own set apart bungalow. The breakfast buffet was very good and staff helpful. I lost a piece of jewelry (my fault, poor fit) and the staff went out of their way looking for... More
