Yes, it may be a bit on the pricey side but it is well the money. The rooms were clean and there was a lot of space. All the staff were incredibly helpful and the breakfast buffet was tasty (bit of English and Sri Lankan cuisine). The highlight was the pool. You will not find a cleaner pool anywhere near....

This is a very old hotel. Bed rooms smells like mold and sewage. Bugs are all over the bed room, they must have a bug control. The hotel manager is unexperienced with very poor communication skills. After a long day of climbing the lion rock, we came back to the room to relax and nap... at 9 pm, we found...

Dear Sara E, It is disappointing to note that you have not enjoyed your stay here with us. Due to the setting of the hotel, insects such as bugs are commonly found in our environment. However, we try our best to control them even though they are not completely controllable - I hope you understand our situation which in fact...

My wife and I stayed here for three nights in late Feb., ‘17, and enjoyed it very much. The Sigiriya is a full-service large resort complex very close to the archeological site and not far from several local restaurants and shops. It is in a quiet rural area down a very bumpy gravel road from the main highway, and from...

We certainly enjoyed the stay! Lovely staff and nice welcome to the hotel. Check in was fast and gotta love the view by the pool! Karaoke was a blast! Buffet was good and had a wide variety and rooms need to be upgraded but nothing to complain about. Hoping to visit back soon!

We used this hotel for a 2 days stopover to visit the rock. Really nice athmosphere and a great buffet. Small thing to complain is that rooms are quite dark. But this i due to they layout of the whole complex.

We really enjoyed this place, and it was the perfect location for visiting lion rock. The hotel itself is really nice, and you can see the rock right from the pool which is pretty incredible.

I stayed at the Hotel Sigiria in late October 2016, time only now permitting me to record my comments and memories. After a long and tiring day of traveling in the heat, it was pure pleasure and delight to come to the Hotel Sigiriya. The staff, sensing our fatigue, offered us a cool drink and warmly welcomed us.
