The hotel has recently re-opened after their renovation, but it is apparent that some part of the hotel is still under renovation. The hotel itself is lovely - nicely decorated, reasonable size pool, a bar overlooking the pool and the Sigiriya rock and a restaurant with great atmosphere. We had dinner at the hotel. We were told by the staff at the hotel that there are wild animals roaming around the village at night time and therefore they have electric fence round the hotel boundary and they don’t recommend us to go out at night. We weren’t disappointed to have dinner at the hotel at all. They have an a la carte menu and also a buffet – I had my best rice and curry in Sri Lanka there!

For the room itself- it is probably due to the recent renovation, the room still smelled of paints. Because the door of the room doesn’t fit the door frame properly, we also had to spend the night with some insects! Considering that the hotel itself is so lovely, we would have thought that the rooms could do a little bit better.

Not only a great location for accessing Sri lankas golden triangle this is a superb place to stay. Recently reopened following extensive refurbishment it was a wow for us. It a ls o gives chauffeur guides good accommodation too. This hotels buffet food was wonderful ingredients are locally sourced and prepared by a passionate team of chefs they wide really well in Srilankas chef competition. Definitely excellent value.

lovely hotel, beautiful setting, the croissant hut in the village great food but be prepared to wait-but worth it! pool nice and relaxing, service great too. i left some clothes by mistake and they managed to get them to me with the help of our driver too-over and above expectation of service!

Room Tip: rooms opposite front of hotel are better than the row behind.

Don't book through Otel.com - the link takes you to Sigiriya Rest House, a completely different hotel. They have charged us the full Sigiriya Hotel price and we are now struggling to get a refund.

I'm sure the hotel is very good!

We chose this decent hotel during our stay. The infrastructure looks more like a home converted to hotel. the rooms were spacious enough with basic amenities. They had a mini bar too( forget using it for the price). the surroundings were quiet and breakfast was of buffet type. The dosa variety in food is not that good to try. You might have to walk a bit out to find any departmental stores. over all, have a quiet walk near the pool having view of the sigiriya fort and cool breeze.

Room Tip: choose a room a bit away from restaurant side

We stayed here for 2 nights as part of our honeymoon tour of Sri Lanka. The hotel is lovely to look at with great views of the Lions Rock however due to the surroundings, the bedroom was covered with insects. But I could live with that. The worst thing was that I received food poisoning. But worst still is that our guide told us that regularly people get food poisoning at the hotel (despite my normally cast iron stomach). Very regularly. Surely this is unacceptable. The staff were very good in trying to help but it ruined my climb up the Fortress which was the reason for being there.

We stayed here for 2 nights as part of a tour of sri lanka. Was a lovely hotel but took a lot of getting there. We had to fly into male 10 hrs, then wait around for 5 hrs, then 1hr flight to sri lanka finally meet the rep who then tells us its a 4 hour journey to the hotel. The hotel was very clean and staff were lovely. Wide choice of food served for breakfast as well as the evening meal.
