Large clean room with comfortable bed, air con, hot shower, outside seating and a rarity cable TV. Breakfast and dinner were also excellent. You need a driver or a bike to get to the fortress or if you want to dine out.

We only stayed in the guesthouse for one night. The Manager is very attentive. He asked us what we would like for dinner and went all out to deliver a traditional Sri Lanka buffet with curries, salad, vegetables, Dahl, roti, coconut sambal. It was superb. The room was large with mosquito net, air conditioned, and double bed. The room had... More

Stayed here for a couple of nights while exploring Sigiriya, Dambulla and Polonnurawa. The place has the perfect location when visiting the Siriya Rock since it's just a few minutes away from the area. It is set several meters from the main highway though so it's not readily accessible if you don't have a bike or a car. If you... More

Grand Regent Holiday Resort is a quaint and rustic resort near Sigiriya Rock Fortress. We got a good deal from the manager when we asked for a non-AC room. Location is great considering it's just a few hundred meters away from Sigiriya Rock Fortress but it is also tucked in the middle of nowhere so expect to dine at the... More

Good accommodation does not come cheap in Sigiriya so as we only had one night there we chose Grand Regent. As previous reviews state the food is very good. However, for $40 a night per room I didn't plan on having a lizard in my room or waking up to find a large centipede dangling from the mosquito net just... More

Grand Regent is in a great location close to Sigiriya and elephants roaming around. It has a real jungle feel. You will hear a lot of animal noises coming from the jungle. The breakfast and main meals are absolutely excellent. You get fresh juices and and fresh fruit daily if you ask for it. You can get Sri Lankan breakfast... More

We stayed one night with our driver. This was booked in advance as a part of a 3days 2nights package. The room was clean enough, but there were no towels. When they showed us our room they also took away the AC-remote without giving us the opportunity to pay more and sleep better. Awfully hot! I woke up all night... More
