all perfect! Stayed in the new house, upper floor in a big room. Clean allover, very comfortable bed, nice balkony to have breakfast and to sit at and all people very very friendly and helpful. Only 50m away very good restaurant for curry and - as the lodge - best value for money. High recommendation!

Ajith and his wife were incredibly welcoming and helpful. We had a double room on the top floor in the new block. Rooms are spacious and exceptionally clean. Delicious and big breakfast served on the veranda outside our room. Ajith made some good suggestions for trips - elephant safari and ayurveda massage. Would definitely recommend this place!!

The couple who own this place are really lovely and go out of their way to make it a nice experience. The rooms are very comfortable & cool. Close to sigiriya. Very good value for money, we ended up staying 2 nights despite planning to stay for 1.

Completely new rooms, big and very well equiped together with lovely hosts make of this place an excellent place to stay for visiting the attonishing Sigiriya rock. BReakfast is not to be missed! Food in the nearby restaurant is OK too.
