I arrived at Lions Rock hotel with a rather sick friend in tow, the staff immediately attended to her needs & before she realised she was in a peaceful state of sleep. The rooms are super clean with luxuary mattresses and newly fitted bathrooms. My friend had to fly back home early but even as a solo traveller I decided to come back to this peaceful haven for another 2 nights. I stayed in a fan room which has high ceilings, high speed working fan & even hot water solar powered. Yes these guys are very eco friendly the owner will grow all his own vegetables in season, unfortunately the long dry spell in sri lanka has not allowed this venture to happen yet.
The rates are very reasonable, the staff service is great and the food is amazing. You can walk to the rock its just over 1km. The garden is full of birds & even an elephant has been spotted at dawn. This is the perfect place to kick back with a book and just relax, trips can be organised for Polonaruwa, Dambulla, elephant safari as well as arveuydic massage which the area is well known for.
The guest house was refurbed about 2 months ago.
