i am writing this review on behalf of my family who stayed at the presidential villa, while my husband and i were booked separately in a deluxe room. imagine our surprise next morning upon meeting up for breakfast when we saw them reporting to the front desk that the room was incredibly dirty. the wooden floors were damaged and the beds were sitting right where the damage is. the hair dryer in the room wasnt working and the technicians who came to help insisted on staying in the room until past midnight just to get it fixed even when my mom had told them she was very very tired and would rather sleep with wet hair. the presidential villa comes with a separate private dining room which you cant access unless you order from the restaurant. the bedrooms themselves were quite small. this was not our first choice hotel in sigiriya but we were forced to stay here after most of the other hotels in the area were booked up in the christmas rush. if you are like us and have no other choice, you might be better off in deluxe room. at least it's better value for money and those rooms are perhaps better maintained as a result of higher turnover rates.
