We came to Lakmini lodge with great expectations as we heard from other travellers that is very nice. It is for sure a nice and quiet place. Also the breakfast bungalow view of the rock is nice. But we feel the ratings are a bit overrated. The location was good but it was not great. It is a walking distance... More

The staff were extremely friendly and helpful. Great view of Lion's rock from the breakfast bungalow! Not to mention good value for money. This place is going to rock with the new 18 room extension and rooftop viewing area. All the best guys, I really enjoyed my stay!

I'm not sure of the exact cost since it was part of a package deal from my tour company. The owner was very helpful and nice. The location was excellent, right next to Lion's rock with a decent view. The rooms are spacious but there are no amenities like TV or Phone. There is an air con. All rooms come... More

I truly enjoyed my stay at Lakmini Lodge. The staff, especially Chadi, was extremely helpful with my accommodations, visiting Lion’s Rock, and getting me to my next destination. The view during breakfast is beautiful as well, which offers a great view of Lion’s Rock. There are many different rooms, from budget to more elegant rooms. Since my stay was only... More

Mr Chanti was a really great host. The room with fan was well worth the money. A great view to the rock while having breakfast. The new house with rooftop will also be really really great. We are able to have a look before opening.

Guest House like accommodation in walking distance to Lion Rock. Continental breakfast wasn't very special. Lodge have a nice backyard with sight to the rock. Atmosphere was nice and other guest seemed to have nice grill dinner. We missed it unfortunately. Rooms were OK, but nothing special.

Chandi, the owner, really wants to make his business successful and understands that happy guests are the key. He is very welcoming and always willing to do the extra mile for you. PROS: + big rooms/ok beds + good location, at +/- 20 walk from the Lion Rock and away from the noise of the street + good Internet +... More

I stayed here for just a day to visit the rock. Its a nice guesthouse with a friendly and helpfull staff. Furthermore it is really near the entrance of the site, so you don't have to walk very far and you have a direct view from the guesthouse rooftop (for those sunset pictures ;-)).

We stayed two nights in Lakmini Lodge in April 2015 with three friends. The rooms are nice, basic but confortable, hot water, mosquitos nets, cheap price. What stands out and made our stay unforgettable was the absolute kindness of our host Ranchi, that took care of us like no other host we had during our stay. He made sure we... More
