“Amazing place to stay!!!”
Reviewed June 15, 2013

We only spent one night here but it was one of the best and quietest stays in our week long trip to Sri Lanka. Very close to the Sigiriya Rock and the owner and his wife were very hospitable. Great breakfast and service. I would recommend this place to anyone staying in the area.

my friend and i spent here 2 nights. The rooms are simple but very clean. The best thing about this place is that it is owned by really nice family, who is very kind, genuine and they are not there to rip you off. They can organize a trips around the area that will be good quality, good price and probably will get a nice tour guide for you.
Many people say that the owners wife makes really good food too, but i never really tried it!

Clean, simple, and spacious rooms. This was one of the nicest places we stayed at while in Sri Lanka. Aji will do his best to make your stay as enjoyable as possible. He even loaned his bike to me for a beer run! Free wifi, walking distance to Sigiriya rock, and quiet. Pet the dog that sleeps on the rock for me. She's the sweetest.

Spacious and clean rooms. Very close to the main road, but set far enough from the road to be very quiet and peaceful. Lion lodge is a short walk to Lion rock and other Sigiri attractions. With a friendly host family. Would definitely recommend the place to anyone!

My boyfriend and I stayed 3 nights here as a base to visit Anuradhapura, Polonnaru, Sigiriya and Dambulla. It was a great central base and Ajith and his family were the most welcoming hosts we had in Sri Lanka. Nothing was too much trouble, they sorted accommodation for our driver, and made the most delicious breakfast of Hoppers. We walked into the main area where they are shops/eateries (only 10 minutes) and also walked to the Sigiriya Village Hotel to swim (highly recommend that as a place to cool down). Rooms were clean and comfortable, and its a great place to stay.

We stayed an extra night because the owner and fellow travellers were so good. Rooms are really clean. We rented the bicycles to visit the smaller Sigiriya rock. Bus stops just outside on the main road. The owner is one of the nicest people we met in Sri Lanka, and we were there for three months.

I stayed here three nights. It is well located and also very quiet. I rented a bicycle (needs some fixing) and one day had a nice massage at Sigiriya Hotel, also used their pool. The owners are very kind and helpful. Room is clean. I hope to come back again.

Room Tip: In hot season it's better to pay a little more to get an air con
