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!

Very clean and comfortable rooms with en-suite bathrooms and nice hot showers. They offer one of the biggest breakfasts in Sri Lanka in an attractive tree house with stunning views of the rock. The optional dinners are excellent and offer a variety of very fresh home cooked dishes. The family who run it are very friendly and they really go... More

The place is quiet and clean and the view of the rock is stunning. Breakfast can be served in the treehouse (which is not actually a... More

We originally planned to stay one night at the lakmini lodge but felt in love with the owner & his family and this layed back village, so extended to two nights. The rooms are really basic but clean. Wifi available at the owner house 2 mins walk away (his family is fantastic). You can enjoy breakfast in the treehouse overlooking... More

Lakmini lodge is a great place to stay if you wanna climb the rock city and explore the national parks in the area! The hosts (Chani and his son) are very friendly and are eager to help you with anything. The rooms are spacious and clean (it even comes with a hot shower, which is hardly needed considering the temperatures)... More

I stayed at the Lakmini for just one night and was treated exceptionally well. Almost overwhelmingly to a certain extent. Mr. Chandi went above and beyond in welcoming us and was truly kind and hospitable. I wish him all the luck in the expansion of his hotel. The value is great, and the tree house is something special. Go check... More

We stayed here for 1 night. When we arrived, chandy (the owner)was waiting for us in the main road, at his shop. He was very friendly and received us with a smile on his face. We just left our stuff in the room and went to the lion's rock. But before we were leaving chandy asked if we wanted to... More

At first we wanted to stay only 1 night, but at the end we stayed 4 nights, because everything was great. The place was very nice, the rooms were basic but clean, the food was a bit chilly but delicious, the owner was funny, full of jokes and always prepared to help. We highly recomend the place!!! :)

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.
