Cinnamon Lodge was an excellent spot either to unwind or as a central point in the Cultural Triangle.
The actual hotel has superb and friendly service. The grounds are inhabited by many different monkeys and lovely birds on the lake. There is also a very interesting organic garden and butterfly area.
I was not well on the day I arrived and they called a doctor who was brilliant. She arrived within 20 minutes and didn't cost much either !
The food is mainly through buffet at breakfast and evening meal. The evening meal is a little overpriced in my opinion although you can eat in a different restaurant off a la carte more cheaply. I also think the hotel should adopt a strict no feeding policy as it encourages monkeys and giant squirrels whilst eating in the day.
We found a chap at the entrance to take us to Sigirya on a tuk tuk who was absolutely brilliant. He stopped on the way to show us all kinds of creatures - water monitors, tortoise, chameleons and best of all a baby elephant and its mother. It was like a safari in itself. He also introduced to an excellent guide at Sigirya and the very best Ayurvedic massage place I have experienced which is very close to the entrance. His telephone no is 077 127 8352. He also acted as a driver to take us to our next destination.
All in all, CL was very good indeed.
