Lakmini Lodge & Restaurant
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 18 March 2017

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 part is probably the owner and his son - they can fix anything you want. Taxi, train tickets, food, whatever. The room (family room with two king size beds) was also great. I would definitely stay here if I visit Sigiriya again. You can also see the Lion Rock from the garden and several of the rooms, and you can easily walk from the lodge to the rock.

Room Tip: Would reccomend a room in the new building.

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 was served in the garden which has a great view of the rock so was lovely! There is work going on, but no noise was being made at any point when we were there. The owner arranged for us and two other couples staying to get a mini van to Kandy. He did offer to take us to visit a nearby nursery which he had donated to and it did feel a little that if we had accepted that we would have been expected to make some kind of contribution, but he didn't push us on it. Lakmini is probably one of the better places to stay in Sigiriya and I would recommend it.

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. Only 5 minute drive to the attraction.The lodge was easy walking distance to the small township of Sigiriya, which boasted a surprisingly wide choice of restaurants for dinner.

Room Tip: rooms on third floor would have view to Sigiriya Rock

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 rock are great if u have a high floor.
I really recomend this place if you want to visit the Lion rock next day.
