Hotel and rooms are fantastic, and the view towards Lion's Rock from the pool is great. But unless you have all afternoon do not order food at the bar. It took between 40 mins and 1.5 hours for our food to arrive and then one order was still missing. If you're going to eat here have the buffet.

Stayed here for 5 nights. The view of the rock is lovely, as is the pool (although there are way too few loungers for a hotel of this size). The food served during the day is excellent – although the evening buffet is overpriced. Take a 2 minute walk to the Sigiriya Village hotel, for the same food at a... More

Stayed only for two days as it was a good reviewed hotel near Sigiriya! Wish we had stayed longer as the hotel had many other activities you could do through them eg. Hot air ballooning safari reserve drives spa days and massages etc which we didnt have time to do. Room was comfortable however we did unfortunately have a power... More

We stayed for 3 nights at Hotel Sigiriya on a half board room rate and our stay was average, if that. On arrival in our room we discovered an ants nest attached to the hotel guide, which was evidently because the room had not been cleaned properly. On alerting the reception desk they said they were going to fumigate the... More

Stayed here for a couple of nights whilst making the obligatory visit to Sigiriya Rock and whilst not blown away by it (other than it's excellent position and view of the rock) I can't really find too much to fault here. Room was spacious enough and clean and looked as though the bathroom had fairly recently been updated. Food was... More

A hotel with relaxed understated charm. Rooms comfortable and well used, (perhaps slightly shabby!) hot water intermittent, and air conditioning on permanent fridge temperature, but none of that mattered as the food, ambience, and pool second to none. Stayed there for 3 nights as part of a tour. The view of Sigiriya rock amazing, and a fantastic base to enjoy... More

Very nice and calm hotel. Pool has a beautiful view of Sigiriya rock. Food was good and buffet had many choices. Staff were friendly and supportive. Rooms and bathrooms were nice and clean. Hope to visit again.

The view from the pool is great. The breakfast buffet had a good variety. Dinner was adequate, the mains were good but the deserts were a little disappointing for the children. Wifi is not available in the rooms, so you have to go to the lounge area to access them. Very close to Lion Rock Fortress.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Hotel Sigiriya is for the nature-culture lover and the eco-buff. For a perfect mix of the splendour of nature and culture, there is nowhere quite like Hotel Sigiriya. Situated in an eight-acre garden of verdant trees, chirping birds and flitting butterflies, overlooking the spectacular Sigiriya Rock, and just four hours away from the capital city of Colombo. ... more   less
