Fantastic place - all the way. Location, area, restaurant and the staff are really the best! Best "room boy" on our trip (Laxim). And the closest we've been to desent coffee for breakfast so far. Will defenately be back.

When we arrived there was no mention of payment and we were sat in the lounge area and given a free drinks which was welcoming. It has a really nice atmosphere and felt relaxing instantly. The bell boy took our bags and welcomed us to our room. Dinner was a buffet at 2000 rupees each, don't get me wrong dinner was delicious but £10 per person is very steep for Sri Lanka. The room was comfortable, the ac worked. There was also a fan and tv. Room had a fridge which is a bonus. The service was excellent at the hotel, staff were very friendly and spoke English There were a lot of hornets around but no mozzies as the hotel uses spray to get rid It was quite expensive to stay, it's a lovely hotel and I enjoyed my stay but at £100 a night with tax it was expensive even in England! I would recommend this hotel for a short stay

I won't go to the length of explaining what Sigiriya is to the uninitiated. If you are keen to know do Google it. The area is beset with hotels of all types as it is a very popular destination. The Hotel Sigiriya with a superb view of the Sigiriya rock fortress across the swimming pool (the latter needs to be enlarged as it is too small) is probably the oldest (about 40 years). The place is homely, serves good meals, and the staff give excellent service. It could do with a face-lift especially in the area where the rooms are located. Placing a couple of chairs at the back entrance to the rooms where there is a little threshold, would be a good idea.

Arriving at Hotel Sigiriya after a long day's travelling from the UK was just what we needed! True paradise and relaxation, beautiful pool and surroundings, and friendly staff who were always happy and able to help with any of our queries. Our three nights at Hotel Sigiriya was the perfect start to our Sri Lanka trip.

Good value, delicious food that caters for a wide range of palates. Staff always had a smile and went out of their way to try and help organise trips, travel and solve any other queries we had. A beautiful pool with a stunning view of Sigiriya rock. Watch monkeys play in the trees whilst you relax in a hammock by the pool! Heaven!

Beautiful grounds and accommodation, rooms could perhaps do with a makeover however regardless it certainly did not detract from our stay. The service at times was slow, sometimes waiting up to 40minutes for a drink. Apart from this is was a very enjoyable stay.

The highlight of our trip to Sri Lanka. The location of this hotel coupled with extremely helpful and courteous staff made for a wonderful 2 day stay. Tranquility of the hotel and a wide array of safari's and walking tours to choose from made this a memorable visit.

We had two days stay at Sigiriya Hotel in June 2017. We reserved two double rooms as my family comprises 6 ppl (including small one - 1.2yrs) The experience my family got is amazing !. From the start of our stay even before reaching hotel was wonderful. One Mr . Roshan called and checked with our requirements, amenities such as baby cots , double beds , twin beds etc. This is my first experience in this caliber. Then on arrival at front desk we received a very warm and loving welcome from Ms Milara , who arranged everything in no time. We should thank Mr Suresh , GM for making staff so friendly and attentive. You have done a lot to train your staff and we did not feel that we were away from of our home. It was truly an amazing experience. Sorry , I cant remember names of all the staff members who had smiles with us and had little chats with us but still can remember few names. At restaurant Kusumsiri, Pradeep , You two were very helpful and many thanks for that. Room service Nalin , you are a great guy , Pool attendant Dinesh one of the best guys in the Hotel. Please never think of leaving Hotel Sigiriya. All these guys are assets to the hotel. Then the luxury of rooms. It's one of the best hotel experience I have had for a long time in Sri Lanka. Very spacious rooms, Clean linen and comfortable bedding , Very good A/c, good lighting , LCD TV with international channels , Spotless clean wash rooms, plenty of bottled water and tea coffee making facilities in room. wow! what else you need to have a homely stay with my family, away from my busy city life. Next is the food. Mouth watering menus. Sri Lankan , Western , Colonial , Chinese all in one buffet. The food provided by Hotel Sigiriya will suite to any one in any age group and for any liking in taste. There were so many items to select and though we stayed for two nights with breakfast + dinner we were not able to taste all the dishes as the variety was so much. I would highly recommend Hotel Sigiriya for any family who want to have a peaceful holiday with ample luxury and with un-doubtfuly the best hospitality in small village of Sigiriya. Thank you very much for wonderful Hotel Sigiriya Team for making our holiday an un-forgettable one. We will definitely come to see all of you again. Keep up the good work ! Cheers ! .

I can't speak highly enough of this hotel I can't believe it's only a 3 star should be a 4 or 5. Rooms are spotless the staff are so friendly and helpful wifi connects easily. The pool was great and food was delicicious, I would definitely go back and stay again.

Staff was welcoming and helped us when ever their assistance is required. Food was superb and had a good combination of Western and eastern. Rooms were clean and tidy. Wash rooms were in a very good condition. We had a Safari in Minneriya National park. It was a great Safari and witnessed more than 50wild elephants. All in all we had a great holiday. Thank u so much. Highly recommend this hotel.
