“Nice place to hide:)”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 7, 2014 via mobile

The place was nice, clean swimming pool, great view from terrace and treehouse. The staff was helpful, although they didn't tell us about bikes rent fee. They have bikes that you can rent and go to Sigiriya Rock which was awesome! Be careful when booking the room by agoda, because they have wrong pictures. We booked deluxe room (which occured to be something like budget room or lower) and the room didn't look like on pictures. Manager told us that agoda put wrong pictures on their webside, and the pictures showed superior room.

Stayed January 2014, traveled as a couple

We stayed for 2 nights and had a wonderful time there. The setting of the hotel is absolutely fantastic and gives a breath taking view of the Sigiriya Rock over the green paddy fields. Upali and Sujatha are truly caring people and made our whole family feel so homely. Food is excellent. Specially you need to try their speciality the "fried lake fish". Its absolutely delicious. The hotel is clean and very child friendly. The pool is so clean and nice. I would specially recommend this place for families with children to experience nature. Rooms are clean and large. All in all its a wonderful place to be.

Room Tip: If you are travelling with family ask for the family room

We stayed at the Hideout for 3 nights over new years 2013/14. Upali and Sujatha are absolutely wonderful hosts - very helpful and welcoming. The food was excellent and the setting incredibly relaxing.

A very friendly place adjacent to the rice fileds. From the balcony you can see Sigiriya rock in the distance. We enjoyed a very peacful New Year´s Eve with a big buffet dinner with excellent food. The owner try everything to make you feel comfortable. The pool is clean and refreshing after cycling to SIgiriya rock and back. Only the extra charge for the poorly serviced bikes seems inappropriate. Definitely recommended.

We had several nights at Hideout Sigiriya and enjoyed the hospitality and reasonable priced food. There were options for lovely Sri Lankan food as well as European. Our only warning is the cash only checkout.

We stayed a The Hideout for 3 nights as part of a 3 week holiday in Sri Lanka. Upali and Sujatha and their staff have created a wonderful retreat for guests to relax and explore the Sigiriya region. The hospitality is exceptional and very welcoming and both Upali and Sujatha like to to feed you up with their wondeful Sri Lankan food. The Chef Sugathapak is excellant in the kitchen serving up a wonderful selection of traditional Sri Lankan food both for breakfast and dinner. The communal dining area has a lovley outlook with a mezanine area with great views of the rock. The grounds are very pleasant with swimming pool area and a couple of tree houses for relaxing and getting close up views of the rock. Rooms are comfortable and spacious. we really enjoyed our stay and would certainly return when visiting this region again.
