Great stay at Travel House. Nice room with little veranda, beautiful surroundings (in the forest, so quite cool). Owner, and his brother who was running the place, are nice guys. Meals are good, one of the better curries we had in Sri Lanka and a full breakfast. We arranged a trip to Minneriya through Travel House (10.000rps) and some bikes.... More

Would happily recommend this place accommodation! Small place, maybe 6 rooms only. Well cared for grounds, the owners take a lot of pride in the place. Very friendly young Sri Lankan couple run this place, their new baby is very cute! We stayed for 3 nights, LOVED the food from their kitchen, made by a local who lives next door.... More

This property is a little gem and in a fabulous location being very close to the Sigiriya Rock. Our room was very spacious, clean, and comfortable with fabulous meals. The gardens are just alive with birds and wildlife. Didn't take us long to make friends with the family dogs who are so well looked after. We loved the fact that... More

This hotel was recommended to us by our driver, and it was where we stayed our first night in Sri Lanka. We arrived in the evening in the midst of a torrential rainstorm, so we did not explore the grounds much, but it is quite secluded in the jungle, lots of trees. Reasonable prices for dinner, I believe we paid... More

We stayed here for one night. It is well off the beaten track and our driver struggled to locate it, so take their phone number with you. The rooms are spacious and clean. It is a jungle location, so there are some bugs but there are mosquito nets and we didn't find them to be a problem. The breakfast in... More

We stayed here 2 nights and found the staff very friendly and accommodating. Food was delicious and especially liked the rotis for breakfast and the yoghurt and honey for dessert. Great coffee and having a jug in the room to make your own was a bonus. Rooms were spacious with comfortable beds and mozzie nets. Good showers and air con.... More

Nice spot and the young guy who is managing it is very "on to" what travelers/tourists need and makes sure everyone is well looked after The room was pleasant and a decent size ... not amazing (weird thing going on with the placement of the shower head??). The food was good if not totally outstanding but certainly passable. I guess... More

Really nice layout with small cottages round the outside of a central point. Lovely food and a selection of drinks available. The owner was hugely helpful and attentive without being in any way too much. The room was great value though bathrooms could have done with a touch of updating (but completely functional). The location was great (walkable to Sigiriya... More

Loved my stay here, the staff is great and the food delicious. The rooms are in the middle of trees, you can see lots of birds, squirrels... There also bikes you can take to have a ride around Sigiriya, go and check out the lake just 15 minutes away. The owner is also French speaking and gives you lots of... More
