We negotiated a good price for the room but it was very basic, however there was a fan, towels and hot water. The room we were staying in was quite noisy but I think most people would be getting up early to climb the rock so it shouldn't be an issue. The breakfast was great though, so that made up... More

I stayed here 2 nights and had a completely positive experience. The owner was very helpful as was the staff, and I especially liked Harshana and enjoyed talking with him about his Buddhist studies. Nice breakfast with view of Lion's Rock. Great location with easy walk to restaurants and to Lion's Rock.

After driving around and looking at multiple bleak, dark, dingy hotels we were overjoyed when we found the Lakmini Lodge. It is bright, fresh, clean and modern. Rooms are huge with high ceilings and uncluttered minimalist furnishings. Sheets are crisp, clean. Spacious roof top deck with primo view of Sigiriya Rock and Pidurangala. good breakfast served in outdoor stilted room... More

I feel like sonething has changed about this place from the other reviews. There is no restaurant and when we asked about the tours listed on their website they said they didn't know anything about them. Luckily our tuk tuk driver helped us organize a safari for the day. The lobby area is always filled with 5 or so guys... More

We really enjoyed our stay here, we were in room 17. From the balcony, but also from the terrace on the roof, you have a stunning view on the rock. The room itself was clean, new and modern. Good bed and soft towels. The place is nearby the main street so you can just walk out to have dinner or... More

Clean room and good bed (we stayed in the new building). Good location, walkable distance to town and lions rock. Friendly staff (especially Mr Chanti, the owner. Other staff a bit indifferent towards the guests). Breakfast was okay. Nice view on the lions rock. We would recommend the guest house...

Father (and son) make your stay nice and comfortable. Enjoy the breakfast in the garden looking over the Sigirya Rock. We had the 4 bed family room, spacious enough, bathroom a little under ecuiped to put your stuff anywhere and the water gets everywhere. But thats just a little inconvenience. Go there!
