Stayed for 3 nights last month whilst travelling around Sri Lanka. Lovely hotel very well situated to visit Lion Rock (only 30 mins walk away) and Minneriya National Park is nearby as well. Great pool too. Very helpful staff.

Sigiriya hotel met all our needs for the three nights we stayed this month.very much like a large safari lodge,this hotel never feels overcrowded. The good sized rooms,although a little dated were well maintained and clean.the open air public pavilions allow the gardens and the wildlife to be viewed from all areas. As stated by others the views of the rock add to the ambience and give the guests a feeling of being part of the great experience that is Sigiriya

The place is nice and comfortable but it feels a bit tired. The rooms are comfortable and the swimming pool is good. The staff were very nice and helpful but the food is overpriced and not that good. In general is a good place to explore the area but the place could be so much better with a few changes.

Room Tip: rooms by the pool are better

Fabulous view of Lion Rock and very nice pool and bar area. Room are OK - quiet and the beds are comfortable, but the switches and controls are ancient and largely not functioning and the bathrooms are very average with some plumbing problems. Service was average - not through lack of effort, but more likely from lack of training. Breakfast buffet was great, but dinner buffet was just average. This hotel needs work and it should be much better than it is. Driver accommodation and food was rated by our driver as very poor - 8 people in a room less than 5m x 3m with some smoking and drinking is not good enough. We encourage others to comment on driver and guide accommodation at all of the places they stay with a view to lifting the standards to a better level - this is particularly relevant to the Hotel Sigiriya.

We stayed here for 2 nights and overall had a very pleasant experience. The rooms are spacious and clean but a little tired especially the bathrooms. The view of Sigiriya rock from the pool cannot be faulted and is stunning. The hotel offers a dinner buffet which we dined at both nights as there is not much around the area. There was a good selection of western and Sri Lankan food choices. The restaurant staff are extremely friendly and service is efficient. Driver accommodation is also provided.

Perfect views of the Rock, which is only a short drive away, from the pool/gardens. A good base for exploring this part of Sri Lanka (Pollonnaruwa, Minneriya Nat Park & Dambulla caves)

Rooms are adequate but showing their age, the bathrooms need updating & a more thorough clean here and there wouldn’t come amiss.

No village of any size or amenities locally, so you will probably need to eat in. The buffet was reasonable (c. 1,600 rupees).

Had an excellent (& very well priced) massage from the spa.
