I stayed at lakmini lodge for two days. The room and bathroom was simple but clean. The staff was very helpful and friendly. The standard was good for the price. They offer tours including safari, elephantrides and a lot more. The owner gave a lot of useful information for my further trip.

We found the place by sheer luck. It turned out to be a wonderful experience, thanks to chandy, the owner. He's really helpful ad has a network of contacts all over the country. He will recommend places to stay and visit. Will also show you around the place and you'll see things that aren't in guidebooks. Oh, and the tree... More

Best kept secret in Sigirya, excellent views of Lion rock. Especially from the roof terrace - where the owner directed me so I could do my morning yoga in peace and quiet. It really was the most beautiful setting. OK, breakfast was a little slow but at this price you really can't complain. A lovely bunch of people running the... More

Really helpful owner - will book any tours you want. Helped me to get onto a shared jeep safari to Minneriya with a different lodge because I couldn't afford to get a whole van for myself. Relaxing treehouse to spend the hot middle of the day in with a view of the rock. Breakfast was amazing! Would definitely recommend.

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.
