Prices are honest, rooms are clean. On the evening rice and curry is delicious and breakfast in front of the lion's rock is pleasant. Good council to organize your trip. And it's possible to see color of sunshine on the lion's rock, from the garden!

after hard negotiations over the phone we had pleasant stay. Only problem that I had was in the bathroom because the light bulb was too close to a shower. The wifi works only between 8am and 10pm (sometimes you need to remind them to turn it on). The owner is nice and very friendly.

A little crazy but nice and funny owner (who also runs a shop nearby). The room was mostly clean (4800 rps, AC, hotwater) but not really a place where you wanna hang out on a rainy day. There's a new appartment building (3 floors!) still under construction so I guess the guesthouse feeling will soon be gone cos it's getting... More

Nice place to stay in a good location, few minutes walk into town or to the entrance to the old city. Good price including breakfast, cheap and cheerful and the owner is a character. The bungalow/tree house where they serve food is really cool with great views of lions rock.

We stay 2 nights in this hotel, with amazing view to sigiriya rock from the roof where they serve breakfast (Sri Lankan breakfast very tasty and good!). You are about 10 minutes walking to the rock and also have restaurants very close by. The rooms are comfortable and clean. The owner is an amazing person and he will help you... More

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
