My wife and I booked a two hours tour through the national park. We started at half past three in the afternoons to avoid the heat around midday and hoped to see more animals. As already described here we saw a lot of elefants (luckily one tusker), crocodiles, water buffaloes, pelikans, storks, a peafowl and a lot of other birds....

We arrived at 6 am in the morning, and we got our room immediately, so that we could sleep for a couple of hours in the morning. Our stay was only for one night, so we kind of got "two nights" for the price of one. We even got breakfast on the day of arrival. That was fantastic. The best...

Our room was lovely, clean and a decent bed. The owner was a nice guy and was keen to be helpful. It's in a great location, walking distance (or tuk-tuk if you prefer) to Lion Rock and is down a side street off the main road so it's very peaceful. There are lots of places to eat nearby and breakfast...

management and staff, very down to earth, warm, hospitable. Very clean and comfortable rooms. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff. Very reasonable cost, family run. It is their home as well. Breakfast was amazing, traditional delicacies such as friendly cooked roti, pani pol, fresh pawpaw. This was served in a tree house with panoramic views of Mt Sigiriya....

We arrived there in the afternoon, there is not much space to park inside, but there is not a lot of people anyway, the workers are kind and helpful, the breakfast is very nice, and the rooms are renewed, the bed is awesome. They are actually building a new block, so it's going to be better. The views of the...

This Hotel is highly recommended because of proximity & views of Lion Rock, comfy, simple yet elegant rooms, great breakfast served at any time to suit you in the tree-house and above all the Owner whose name I didn't take down, unfortunately. A previous reviewer complained that the Reception is a desk under the stairs but why is that a...

Whilst not dreadful my experience was not quite so positive as the other reviewers. We were left waiting for about an hour on arrival. "Reception" is a desk under the stairs. There is building work going on at the entrance to the hotel. We paid extra for a view of lion rock but this was obscured by a water tank....

We arrived late in the evening after a long travel and were very very happy to see the big, clean rooms. Beds were good and breakfast amazing! We went up to the lion rock very early, at 6 am - and the hotel were flexible enough to make us the breakfast when we returned. Sigiriya was also a very nice...

We only stayed here for one night but would have happily stayed longer. The family room in the newer block was bright, modern, clean and had the comfiest beds of our whole trip! The hotel has fabulous views of Lion Rock from the rooms, the breakfast hut (with lovely breakfast included) and the fabulous roof terrace. The main reason we...
