Stayed here for two nights, it in a good location for seeing siguriya rock and the surrounding areas. The staff were always friendly and happy to help with anything we needed. Would recommend if you are looking for somewhere simple to chill at the end of the day.

Was impressed with the size of our double room with TV (room 01) - really big. Breakfast was included in the room rate. The hotel itself was set in tranquil surroundings in a wooded setting with lots of monkeys, very close to Sigiriya rock. The standout aspect of this hotel were the friendly and helpful staff who were really kind... More

My girlfriend and I had the misfortune to stay in this hotel. It was advertised as having a swimming pool, when we arrived the pool had on been half built. Was not able to have a decent sleep as the a/c had only two settings, either off full stop or blasting away at full pelt, the controller was damaged and... More

We stayed here for 2 nights in a top floor room. The room had 3 singles, perfect for me and my brother as we threw all our stuff on the 3rd bed. I had no problems with the room and unlike someone else has said when we asked for an adapter we were promptly given a adapter power board. The... More

Nice area close to the Sigiriya Rock, but the rooms need work especially the bathrooms need to be completely redone as now they are old and very used. also the room cleanliness has to be improved, we were on a five night tour through Sri Lanka and this hotel was the worst. Staff are nice and food is good, a... More

Stayed for 1 nights while travelling around. Makes a good base to look around siguriya and other sites. They were just finishing the pool when we left which would be great after a long day in the heat. The staff are great and meals excellent. Rooms are large but a bit dark. It's peaceful and quiet.

One night's stay in this resort set inside what was once a farm or an orchard was sufficient to make us fall in love with this place. Clean rooms and toilets. Good quality linen and nice furniture. The estate is a great place to watch birds. I found at least 20 different species right inside the campus. I have very... More

Stayed here for 2 nights. Food is a good, staff is friendly, you have WiFi at the restaurant. The hotel is surrounded by trees and vegetation, on an alley away from the road, so it will be quite enough to rest very well. But: 1. once it gets dark, dark will be in the room also. Pour lights. 2. Shower... More
