Booked as part of a tour deal through the tour operator. Very damp and smelly room. Very basic. Not very clean. Would not stay again as did not feel comfortable. The breakfast was good and the waiter was very friendly.

We spent 2 nights in this hotel and it was good. The staff was great, the rooms clean and the fee was fine. You can eat there a menu with typical food of the country. Then, you can rent a cycle to visit the Sirigiya rock yourself, they can help you for everything. We recommended absolutely.

worst place to stay ever, i dont advise you to ever stay there, they try to rob you for every dime you have, they seem nice at the beginning, but they are not be aware. especially the manager Shandana, the rooms are full of cockroaches and insects. there are better places in that area.

Not far from the historical site; very quiet and peaceful,in the middle of a very well kept and silent garden, with a few banana-eating squirrels. Very friendly and efficient staff and the owner speaks French. The rooms are large, modern, well kept and furnished, with efficient and silent A.C. Nice and large batroom with hot water. The restaurant is in... More

I stayed at Sigiriya Cottage for two nights in mid-February. The rooms are large but basic. The water is lukewarm (not uncommon in Sri Lanka and not altogether a problem when it is 35 degrees all the time) and the decor/cleanliness slightly rough-and-ready (again not uncommon in Sri Lanka). The service, however, is excellent. The owner will happily give you... More

We spent two nights here as part of a tour. Rural setting in a large walled garden, spacious rooms, and the location was peaceful but convenient for the village. Simple but good breakfast: we did not have any other meals so can't comment, but we were offered rice and curry. Service was friendly but perhaps could have been more "hands... More
