We stayed two days and enjoyed it. The staff was very friendly and helpful. We had an ac room that was ok. Our room was for nice and clean. On the "treehouse" you have a great view. We went to the lions rock and on a safari where we saw hundreds of elephants.

Nice accommodation with best view to the Lion Rock. The room was clean and cheap. The pillows are too hard for using them and they only offered us rice and curry. Staff was always friendly and very helpful. Hotel could be recommended for visiting Sigiriya.

We stayed for 3 nights in Lakmini Lodge. The rooms are of two different kind but altogehter comfortable and clean. Thw nights are quiet and each room has hot water. We rented scooters from the owner for visiting the hot spots around (Polonaruwa, Sirigiya, Dambulla, Minneriya). The owner and his boys did a great job. Delicios breakfast in the treehouse... More

Practical accommodation within close range of both Sigiriya Rock and the Elephant Safari both of which we did and really enjoyed. Chandry the owner is very welcoming and hospitable and provided us with a good breakfast on both mornings. There was an awesome palm leaf treehouse at the back which was great for socializing and had a fantastic view of... More

A Nice lodge, basic, clean and rather cheap. Breakfast from the tree hut with view on the sigiriya mountain is superb. Owner knows a lot, he's a walking google machine. The safari tour to the national park minneriya, you can better do this from pollonaruwa. Closer and cheaper. Only surprising detail is the Sri Lankan breakfast that was not included.... More

We were given the very best care and attention during our stay. the rooms were basic but clean - matched the price we paid. I'd recommend others stay here, it is a little walk out of Sigiraya central area but has the best tree house view of the rock.

The manager really wants you to feel comfortable and served. Best in-house service we had on our three week tour, too bad there is not too much around sigirya to spend time on, would've stayed longer if there were.
