We stayed two nights in Lakmini Lodge in April 2015 with three friends. The rooms are nice, basic but confortable, hot water, mosquitos nets, cheap price. What stands out and made our stay unforgettable was the absolute kindness of our host Ranchi, that took care of us like no other host we had during our stay. He made sure we... More

My boyfriend and I travelled through the country in Feburary/March 2015 and luckily ended up staying at this lovely place before flying back home! We called one day in advance and got a nice, clean room for 2800/per night (no AC) with breakfast included. What we especially loved was the beautiful treeehouse with its amazing few on the rock and... More

We loved our stay here. The owner is a really lovely guy, and we enjoyed meeting him and his family. His wife cooked a group of us a nutritious rice and curry dinner, whilst her husband popped into town to buy us a bottle of Arrack (local rum) to wash it down with! So very kind. The rooms are basic... More

We spent 2 nights, the four of us, at Lakmini Lodge, on February 2015 and thoroughly enjoyed it. The hospitality of Chandy was terrific: warm, thoughtful and friendly. Breakfasts from the hut facing the Lion rock were great moments at the start of the day! I cheefuly recommend Chandy's place if you want a friendly place to rest and visit... More

Clean room and very reasonably priced. Only downside is the room was very bare with only a bed! Only a bottom sheet was provided (no blankets). There was only one power point as well which is not convenient if you have things to charge. Breakfast was standard, although it came out slowly piece by piece over 40 minutes and delayed... More

Can say only possitive things about our stay. The owner was absolutely amazing and helpful with everything, even catching the bus. The rooms are great for the price in comparison to others. Breakfast is served in the "tree house", which makes for a beautiful start of the day and somethimes even the squirrels would come play during our meal. What... More

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.
