I stayed here one night, my previous guesthouse host recommended them. I was the only one staying there. It was near Sigiriya Rock. I stayed in room 3. Great room. Lovely shower, good beds and wifi in the room. I had travelled from Negombo and was starving and they kindly did an omelette for me. I had dinner in the... More

We enjoyed the peaceful surroundings away from traffic and noise, only bird song. Much needed after a day of sightseeing. The rooms was spacious, clean and cool and the service friendly and the food good.

I had a chance to stay at Sigiriya Cottage for 3 nights in Jan 2016, the outdoors on this property is heaven with really the right atmosphere and calmness prevailing, it was really impressive and surrounded by nature. The cottage rooms were ok (they were old) with the exception of a TV and an odd smell prevailing. The better things... More

We stayed only one night. First what I have to say that the owner was very friendly and willing to do everything for us. He wanted us to feel comfortable and he did so. We got a room, but I could smell a humidity so we could change a room...no problem :-) We could even keep our stuff in the... More

Sigiriya Cottage is a very beautiful property managed by a family. The rooms are very big and clean. This hotel is very close to the Sigiriya rock. The greenery around is not only soothing to the eyes but also attracts many birds in the campus. Early morning we were also greeted by giant squirrels. Short staffed but very friendly. Overall...

The location of these cottages was very peaceful, just off the main road and not too far from the rock. The rooms were large and airy with good air con, free wifi, home made food, free bicycle hire, clean bathroom and hot water. Staff were friendly and helpful, but the main attraction is the peaceful garden setting and the friendly... More

Non-maintained and unclean room; bathroom that would need to be changed. A really good experience for the adventure's lovers. The owner is very kind but don't take a look to the kitchen...we are sorry to write these not nice thinks but we would like to inform the owner that with small measures could become a cute and comfortable.

Don’t know whether this place is old or new but it sure has a run-down appearance. Room is spacious but many of the light bulbs have burnt out so it’s difficult to see the place clearly. A/C and ceiling fan. During supper in the dining area we're joined by three skinny cats who wear collars and seem to know the... More
