Not far from the historical site; very quiet and peaceful,in the middle of a very well kept and silent garden, with a few banana-eating squirrels. Very friendly and efficient staff and the owner speaks French. The rooms are large, modern, well kept and furnished, with efficient and silent A.C. Nice and large batroom with hot water. The restaurant is in...

The service, however, is excellent. The owner will happily give you...

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...

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!
