The owners of this place are very nice. Situated a little bit back from the main road, this place is quiet. Rooms are very simple but clean. They serve breakfast on the tables in front of the rooms. The hotel is quite close to the entrance of the Lion's Rock.

The guest house is clean well maintained. Aji and his family (the owners) are real treat, always want to help and you can consult them regarding everything in the area and the region. The breakfast is excellent and gives the added value for your money. We also booked Minneriya safari jeep from here, elephants!!!! Thanks a lot, Ori & Ifi

We really, really enjoyed our stay at Lion Lodge. We are on a fairly long trip and have stayed in lots and lots of places, and this was by far one of the best. The rooms are fine and functional, but it's not these which make this place so fantastic: it is the atmosphere generated by the wonderful hosts. They...

We based here for four nights in March, 2017 and were delighted we did. The hotel is clean, well set up, and good value for money. Air con worked well; two separate wifi systems are available, one of which is fairly slow.. Breakfast was big...and tasty. The location is spectacular - a short walk to the Sigiriya climb entrance road;...

The bathroom was fine with a warm shower. The people were super friendly and helpful. The breakfast was rich and great with a nice selection of local dishes and...

Clean basic rooms with fan and mosquito nets, bathrooms are clean too. The breakfast is huge, fruit, hoppers, egg, bread, it's a good meal before doing Sigiriya. The staff aren't always around. We were assured or bags would be safe in the reception, and thankfully they were but they were left unattended in an open room. The staff were very...

The location is Ideal for visiting Sigiriya, which is in walking distance from the lodge. Breakfast was fresh and plentiful and served on the terrace. The bus stops virtually opposite,...

The owners made us feel very welcome and helped us with all our questions about the area and for onward travel plans. The room was clean and spacious. The lodge is just off the road hidden amongst the trees, making for a quiet setting. We would certainly recommend.

There is really nothing more you can wish for in a hotel. The owners are amazing, friendly, helpful and just nice people. Breakfast is plentiful and the balconies are great for lounging around. Location is fine for visiting lions rock and having a beer in the evening (avoid restaurant next door, sandy fried rice)

We enjoyed 4 nights at the Lion Lodge in one of the non A/C rooms in the ground floor of the older block at the lodge. The room was big and clean with towels provided and lovely crisp white bed linen. The bathroom had both a hot and a cold shower. There was a seating area outside the room where...
