The hotel reminded me of accommodations I had once while on safari as the view out of our sliding doors was of an open field, rather serene and peaceful in addition to the breakfast being served in an elevated hut-style veranda. The room we had was massive with a large, comfortable bed. A new restaurant was being installed, so they...

Very good experience at Lakmini lodge. I spent a couple of nights with my husband in March 2017. The room was as expected : comfortable, spacious and clean. The employees as well as the owner were very nice and provided a delicious and peaceful breakfast on a stunning view : the lion rock. We couldn't expect better !

The room was great. Very modern, clean and bright with a lovely garden outlook. The staff were incredibly helpful, the owner even tracked our tuk tuk down after we left a bag at the lodge. Highly recommended.

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....
