I stayed here with two friends in a twin room which is the most affordable way to do it. The rooms are clean and the owner is attentive and if memory serves me right breakfast is included. If you take the bus make sure you get off in town otherwise you will get dropped off near the entrance to the... More

Rooms were clean and neat. Communal supper was very delicious! Breakfast was good with amazing view of the Sigiriya rock. The owner and staff are very friendly and helpful. They make you feel at home and will help you with travel advice. Short walk to Sigiriya Rock yet still secluded from the touristy area. Can not wait to go back... More

Lakmini Lodge is a quiet and pleasant enough place in a town that is basically a collection of tourist services for the Sigiriya rock fortress (and in essence not really much of a town at all). For budget accomodation, the quality of the rooms was high, they were spotlessly clean, extremely quiet, and the "tree house" eating area was a... More

Lakmini lodge was an amazing bungalow-style motel in Sigirya. Our stay there was a fantastic experience and the lodge offered unbeatable service. Changde retrieved our charger all the way from a homestay in Kandy, He arranged for us to sleep in a treehouse. His wife prepared delicious food for every meal. The place was clean and comfortable. There was a... More

very good location for this guesthouse. Price is OK for budget traveller but you have to negotiate. breakfast is good with a nice view on the rock (selling point for the GH). New building is in construction, so more room, but more busy staff. Wifi was suppose to be on from 8am tout 10pm, but usually did notre work on... More

The family who runs the Lakmini Lodge are such friendly and helpful people! On top of that, the price for the room is more than reasonable compared to other options in Sigiriya, AND the view of The Rock and the rice paddies from the garden behind the house is hard to top. The room we rented was simple but clean,... More

I can definitely recommend this place. Friendly owner whose wife served us delicious rice & curry at night and a decent breakfast in the morning. Enjoying breakfast in the wood house in the back with a beautiful rock view was tremendous. Very helpful staff. Thanks for the good times.

A spectacular view of Sigriya rock across lush green rice paddies while eating a beautiful breakfast. One of the reasons to stay at this value for money guest house. Mr Chandi is a lovely, warm and friendly owner who takes his time to make sure you have what you need and enjoy your stay. The rooms are simple but clean... More

Spent two nights there because it was so quiet and nice. The owner is a joker and a really good guy. The view of Sigiria is unreal from the guest house. Only rice fields and the giant rock. Very affordable and a lucky find. Totally recommend this place!
