We really enjoyed our stay here. Feels like you are in the middle of the wilderness! The staff were so friendly and accommodating. I will always remember my time here. The breakfast was very tasty and delicious

The hotel is away from the road, in quiet bucolic a garden. The rooms are in lodges, not brand new but comfy beds, hot water. They were very efficient and nice in organising transport and a safari (minneriya) for us. The restaurant is ok. The WiFi didn't really work...

A wonderful place to stay. Feels like you are in the wilderness. Loved the monkeys swinging on the trees. The room is basic but very clean. I liked the simplicity of it. The staff were absolutely amazing and myself and 2 sisters were treated like royalty. Food was exceptional and we would very much like to stay again. This place...

This place was totally wild and exotic. Felt like your room (big, clean, AC, free WiFi) was in the middle of a jungle. Monkeys running and playing on the roofs, noisy palm squirrels jumping on the trees, morning wake up call by peacocks wandering around the area made this one night stay really memorable for us. The food was also...

Large clean room with comfortable bed, air con, hot shower, outside seating and a rarity cable TV. Breakfast and dinner were also excellent. You need a driver or a bike to get to the fortress or if you want to dine out.

We only stayed in the guesthouse for one night. The Manager is very attentive. He asked us what we would like for dinner and went all out to deliver a traditional Sri Lanka buffet with curries, salad, vegetables, Dahl, roti, coconut sambal. It was superb. The room was large with mosquito net, air conditioned, and double bed. The room had...

Stayed here for a couple of nights while exploring Sigiriya, Dambulla and Polonnurawa. The place has the perfect location when visiting the Siriya Rock since it's just a few minutes away from the area. It is set several meters from the main highway though so it's not readily accessible if you don't have a bike or a car. If you...

Grand Regent Holiday Resort is a quaint and rustic resort near Sigiriya Rock Fortress. We got a good deal from the manager when we asked for a non-AC room. Location is great considering it's just a few hundred meters away from Sigiriya Rock Fortress but it is also tucked in the middle of nowhere so expect to dine at the...

Good accommodation does not come cheap in Sigiriya so as we only had one night there we chose Grand Regent. As previous reviews state the food is very good. However, for $40 a night per room I didn't plan on having a lizard in my room or waking up to find a large centipede dangling from the mosquito net just...

Grand Regent is in a great location close to Sigiriya and elephants roaming around. It has a real jungle feel. You will hear a lot of animal noises coming from the jungle. The breakfast and main meals are absolutely excellent. You get fresh juices and and fresh fruit daily if you ask for it. You can get Sri Lankan breakfast...
