Cinnamon Lodge is an ideal location for visiting some of the sites of the Cultural Triangle. However it has the added attraction of being interesting in its own right because the grounds are full of birds and other wildlife. It abuts an area of wetland which is particularly rich in birdlife; we didn't see a lesser adjutant anywhere else in... More

We had three nights at Cinnamon Lodge and I wish we could have had four. the rooms were really lovely and very spacious. We took two as we were travelling with our daughter, most off the rooms are set in what look more like houses with two to each house, the upstairs making one room and the downstairs another. They...

I understand why other reviewers may have commented negatively about this hotel, however, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The lodges were clean and smelt beautifully of cinnamon! The food on offer was fresh with a huge choice of both Sri Lankan and Western dishes. We're not overly keen on buffet dining, however it did provide an opportunity to chat with... More

I enjoyed the Cinnamon Lodge very much. It felt very Lankan. The rooms were quite nice but it takes some getting used to the bathroom having no fan or A/C. It was large; had only a shower. The heat in there could almost bowl you over sometimes. Rooms were very clean. Staff helpful. The dinner's were spectacular...the food and choice,... More

Arrived with 3 children and we were amazed by wildlife outside our rooms. Monkeys, Large land monitor, Jan squirrel (national animal), birds, colourful bugs...it was amazing! Hotel itself is great, food is excellent with plenty of variety. Children enjoyed the pool.

It's fine. There's nothing really wrong with it. It has a lovely setting and good amenities, including adequate lodges, a spa and a large pool. On the negative side, it's full of coach parties and, probably as a direct consequence, only does buffet meals, which never make for a relaxed dining experience. However, the food itself is of above average... More

we arrived at the Cinnamon in the early evening to be presented with a fresh fruit cocktail and were told we had been given a free upgrade. We were taken to our beautiful room down by the lake, it was spotlessly clean and extremely spacious, the bathroom was very high spec and spotless. We went for a walk around the... More

First I must warn you that my view of Cinnnamon Lodge is affected by the fact that there was virtually non stop rain while we were staying. This is not what we had expected in December. It did however reveal some issues with the hotel due to the chalets spread around the grounds. The rooms were spacious although a little... More

The hotel is a bit old but still very well kept and the staff is quite helpful. There is a lake where you can have a boat ride or simply stare the sunset in a amazing and calm atmosphere. I've tried both restaurants, the buffet and the a la cart, both with polite service and good food. The SPA does... More

Good location as it's near to Sigiriya & Anuradhapura. Friendly staff. Room was spacious but extremely unhappy with the condition of the bathroom. I believe the tiles in the shower area were not cleaned for ages! stain marks were clearly visible when the shower area was dry, so as the shower cubicle glass. Also the wash basin needs thorough cleaning.... More
