Liked: Cleanliness
Disliked: Amenities, property conditions & facilities
I stayed here 10 years ago and it was wonderful. The “bones” are great but “cracks” are appearing. The rooms are generous and the property and vistas are beautiful. The property, rooms and facilities are beginning to look a little tired and the staff are struggling. The swimming pool and spa are a long way away but there used to be buggies to pick you up especially during the heat of the day. Phones not working so room service was difficult. There was a ridiculously high corkage charge on some wine that we brought with us and the laundry charge was incredibly high. Bathrooms need a renovation. The overall grandeur is still there so it wouldn’t take much to improve it. No activity was offered. I love birdwatching and preciously an expert was offered along with other interesting experiences.

Grand, great views & good location
Lovely hotel with big rooms. The pool was nice too, located a short walk from the rooms and you can borrow cycles. Lovely view of Sigiriya rock too. The bar was a bit of a strange room with no atmosphere. It felt more like a waiting room. We had our drinks outside though so this was not a problem.

Rural retreat, beautiful gardens.
Close to Sigurya, Lion Rock can be seen from reception. Dambulla 40 mins drive. This is an absolutely amazing hotel. Totally away from anything. A very tranquil rural retreat, only 28 rooms (I believe). The staff, from the lady gardeners to the waiters, were all lovely. They made it!
