Very quaint and nice little cottage, beautifully set in the jungle! Clean rooms and good facilities. Nice fruit-based breakfast. But bring your own driver/ arrange a drop off-pick up. It was booked by our driver since all the listed ones were full Recommended

We spent 2 days in Dec. 2013 as a young couple. Environment is nice and located very close to sigiria. It is a nice cottage with a very very kind and pleasant staff. They served a good breakfast with a drinkable coffee for the area. The room was nice but it could have been cleaner. It was smelling moist, there...

Friendly staff. Big clean rooms and bathroom. Comfy bed with good air con. Manager told us a good place to go for a swim in the evening as they have no pool. WiFi worked well. Good base for climbing Sigiriya!

The rooms here are like small huts and are perfect for basic clean accommodation in the price range. Food was also good quality. Location great for nearby sites. It is very quite so staying 1-2 nights is plenty. Great wifi which was handy and surprising considering how remote we were

We spent two nights here, our overall experience was very good. The only negative comment I have regarding this guesthouse is its web site. Don't believe it! I have no ideas why they mention a safe box and tea/coffee facilities. None are available. But if you don't expect these then it's a decent and comfortable guest house, with five rooms...

I took the non-AC room with my GF for 2800 rupees p/n. All the cottages provided are large, clean and in a pleasant garden environment with an open walled restaurant structure in the communal area. My bedroom did not have a mosquito net, but there was an electronic anti-mosquito device provided which seemed to work fine. The garden is visited...

Lovely staff, very friendly monkeys and a big clean room. Nothing fancy but it was close to everything we wanted to see in Sigyriya and surrounds. Great food too! Plenty of local wildlife ready to greet you in the morning. Definitely recommend insect repellant and a mosquito net if you are sensitive to insect bites, however they do give you...

We stayed 4 nights from 5th August 2013. The rooms were large and comfortable with a table and chairs outside to admire the garden surrounds. Their chicken curry was the best we tasted on our whole 26 days in Sri Lanka. Chandana even showed us how to cook it one night along with the recipe. Chandana and his brother were...

The first impression of Sigiriya Cottage is a bad one, since you only see a run down service building when entering the premises. The rooms are nice and spacy with fan and A/C. In the first night we had a frog problem, i.e. a frog constantly entering the shower through all kinds of tubes and gaps, despite our efforts to...

I felt very safe at the Sigiriya Cottage and it met my expectations. It was quiet and the place was simple and comfortable. The floors were a bit dusty since it's in the middle of a forest but the beds were comfortable and the food was reasonably priced as well as included large portions (although I don't eat a lot...
