We were really excited to come and stay at this hotel after reading the reviews. We booked a Superior Double Room and stayed for two nights, much to our regret. When we checked in we were provided with a room with two single beds. We are informed that the hotel has 150 rooms but that only 20 of the rooms... More

The Cinnamon Lodge is a great place to base yourself while visiting the sites of the cultural triangle. It's based in the small village of Habarana which has a handful of local shops but not much more. The Hotel itself is set in large grounds on the edge of a lake. The rooms are all located in the grounds, usually... More

I chose this hotel as I had stayed there 17 years ago and to be honest, it was better than I remember. A wonderful welcome by the staff with a lovely cold drink and cold towels - we had got straight off the plane and visited the Pinewala Elephant Orphange, so we were tired and hot! We had a deluxe...

The lodge is a quality hotel that has withstood the test of time. We stayed along with a group of 10 friends. The rooms are spacious, recently redecorated and comfortable, although some of the fittings in the bathroom were past their use by date. Very tranquil setting. Staff are professional and friendly. Food is of a high standard and the... More

We loved our stay at Cinnamon lodge. It is in the perfect positiom to see all the surrounding area incl sigiria, minneriya, ritigala and Polonnaruwa, all of which we enjoyed. The grounds are lovely. Staff are very friendly and helpful. The rooms were well equipped and clean. Our only complaint is that the hotel was expensive for drinking and even... More

I stayed in this resort for 2 nights, and I wish it was even longer. The check in was very quick and the staff were very friendly. The ''welcome drink'' was a special part of their service. The resort is an adventure in itself. We enjoyed the lake view at the sunrise and sunset. The out-door restaurant was next to... More

We stayed here for two nights. The grounds were lovely with wildlife and a beautiful lake to make it extra special. Check in was very efficient and hotel staff friendly, professional and helpful. On the walk to our room we witnessed monkeys (lots of mums and bubs) and a sleepy squirrel in the tree outside our room. We stayed in... More

We arrived late and departed early so didn't really get a chance to experience a lot at Cinnamon Lodge. We'd heard about the buffet from other tourists but were amazed at the lavish availability - it's almost sinful. Wonderful tastes though. It's a bit of a maze to find your room but staff everywhere to guide you. Big, big enterprise... More
