The Hotel Sigiriya Reviews
great location, great view Dec 28, 2009
Arriving at Hotel Sigiriya my first impression was ‘WOW’, the hotel has two wings, on your right hand site restaurant facilities, on your left the rooms. In the middle you see a large pool with a breathtaking view on the nearby lion rock!!
We were staying for 3 nights, in a ‘superior room’. Spacious, a/c, complimentary coffee and tea facilities, mini bar, mosquito repellent appliance and a big flat television screen. All rooms on the ground floor (open air gangway). Sounds good right? But……. the room and especially the bathroom were not clean, not clean at all. And the terrace area of the room looked as nobody has been there for a very long time.
The food in the (buffet style) restaurant, (breakfast and dinner) was good. Staff friendly. Life music at breakfast (flute player) and dinner.
Lovely pool, the pool attendant had a second job, sending away the monkeys, which was quite entertaining (for us, not for him).
From the hotel you can walk to the lake, in between the hotel and the rock, where you can book an elephant safari (going into the lake on the back of an elephant).
The hotel is at a great location to go for an elephant safari in one of the national parks and, of course, to visit Sigiriya rock (part of the Cultural Triangle, UNESCO World Heritage site).
