“Chalet-style rooms in garden setting”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 21, 2014

We spent two nights here as part of a tour. Rural setting in a large walled garden, spacious rooms, and the location was peaceful but convenient for the village. Simple but good breakfast: we did not have any other meals so can't comment, but we were offered rice and curry. Service was friendly but perhaps could have been more "hands on". We had a power cut for over an hour one evening, but there was no communication from staff or alternative lighting offered.

We spent 2 nights at Sigirya Cottage, a quiet, peaceful place in the outskirts of Sigiriya. Our room was big, no mosquito net but fumigators. Excellent dinner and breakfast. Staff was very efficient and friendly, in particular the waiter Hadji (I hope I write correctly his name!) who was really welcoming and helpful!

4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2014

We stayed for 3 nights at the beginning of our holiday. The accommodation was clean and a good size. The location was ideal being close to Sigiriya rock and in lovely gardens surrounded by wildlife.The breakfasts were good and the staff very friendly. Frogs, mosquitos and dogs were plentiful but were manageable but not being a cat lover the kitten that was always around the tables at breakfast was more of a nuisance to me.Overall this is a good clean and very reasonably priced place to stay.

Room Tip: Room 4 which was furthest from the router had poor wi fi signal

Very quaint and nice little cottage, beautifully set in the jungle!
Clean rooms and good facilities. Nice fruit-based breakfast.
But bring your own driver/ arrange a drop off-pick up.

It was booked by our driver since all the listed ones were full

3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 26, 2013

We spent 2 days in Dec. 2013 as a young couple.
Environment is nice and located very close to sigiria. It is a nice cottage with a very very kind and pleasant staff. They served a good breakfast with a drinkable coffee for the area. The room was nice but it could have been cleaner. It was smelling moist, there were holes in the bed sheets and we found some insects. The A/C is still appreciable though.
Every room only have twins bed and as a couple we would have prefer a double. Good point for family, a third bed is available at no charge.

Friendly staff. Big clean rooms and bathroom. Comfy bed with good air con. Manager told us a good place to go for a swim in the evening as they have no pool. WiFi worked well. Good base for climbing Sigiriya!

The rooms here are like small huts and are perfect for basic clean accommodation in the price range.

Food was also good quality. Location great for nearby sites.

It is very quite so staying 1-2 nights is plenty.

Great wifi which was handy and surprising considering how remote we were
