“Amazing view”
Reviewed 23 May 2014

The view of the Lion rock from the hotel garden is simply breathtaking!!! We absolutely enjoyed having a beer in the lovely garden and just looking. Or jumping into the pool and still looking towards the rock. Very very special. And the people at Hotel Sigiriya were absolutely kind and welcoming, really loved to stay there.

The Hotel Sigiriya is a good hotel in a great location. The pool has a stunning view of Lion Rock. Good breakfast buffet with both Western and Sri Lankan items. Nice rooms. Definitely would stay again.

We stayed here for two nights during our honeymoon while on a four day tour. The hotel is ideally located to climb Sigiriya Rock, which we climbed in the morning, it was amazing. The hotel is good, food was buffet style and there were plenty of choices. Our room was lovely though we had to share it with a little lizard! Wifi only in the bar area but that was fine. Staff very nice. Really really enjoyed staying here!! Very peaceful and quiet hotel and would stay here again!

The hotel location is excellent for the rock and village visits. Arrival was quite strange and slower than all other hotels we stayed at. Food was OK and the room, while comfortable is just average. The best part is the hotel is the pool and bar area. Very comfortable place to be with an excellent view of the rock.

We found the staff here were very helpful and friendly. Very conveniently situated if you are going to climb the rock early in the morning before it gets too hot.
Very good food although the bedroom was in need of refurbishment and the towels could do to be renewed.
Wifi in bar area only but it was quite adequate and a pleasant place to sit in the evening if there aren't too many insects.
Had a complimentary neck massage which was very enjoyable

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.
