This property is nice. Has spacious rooms and a great view of the Rock. We were well looked after by good staff and enjoyed an upgrade. The plunge pools in the rooms are a great relief after a hot day of siteseeing.

We stayed at four different hotels during a two week holiday in Sri Lanka and this one was the worst so far! Although the architecture is quite spectacular and the surrounding area is of outstanding beauty, the actual management of the hotel has been left in the hands of an incompetent and absent manager who lives in Colombo and the...

We booked this hotel after checking into our first hotel and realizing that it was simply too far away from anything to make the stay pleasant. The Elephant Corridor Hotel is located minutes away from Sigiriya, Dambulla (the market is spectacular) and close to 3 different nature reserves for elephant spotting. The hotel staff is incredibly helpful and will arrange... More
