The Hotel is one of the oldest hotels in Sigiriya, so I wasn´t sure it would meet my expectations. I found it quite lovely actually, and well preserved. It has a extremely good location, we actually walked till Lion´s Rock and it was like 15 to 20 min minutes away.
The Rooms are quite good but not extremely clean, there was some dust, the bed wasn´t that confortable also, but it was spacious and the conditions offered were very good considering the Hotel is quite old.
The swimming pool is very good, perfect to chill out at the end of the day, there´s also a place there to have foot massage.
The breakfast was ok, with plenty of choices in fruit, cakes and bread, the coffee wasn´t that good, but the tea was ok.
Also had dinner at the hotel, it´s buffet, there´s really many choices, and the food was delicious, there was also musicians playing at the dining area.
One plus is the fact that there´s Free Wi-Fi at the Hotel lounge area (there´s a Cocktail Bar), near the swimming pool, but not in the rooms unfortunately.
(Useful Information: The price to enter Lion´s Rock is 30 dollars/3900 sri lankan rupies each person, higher than I expected, so we had to take a tuc-tuc and find an ATM machine, cause they dont accept credit cards, have that amount with you in cash when you get there, and there are also some bees.. but I only saw one up there (they told us that in August it wasn´t common to see them), I didn´t had any problems, either way you can buy a protection at the ticket place if you wish).
