    Everything was perfect! The cottage is nicely furnished and very spacious, there are electricity plugs next to both sides of the bed, the shower is nice and warm, everything is spotless clean. The location is conveniently right on the main road, but quiet at the same time. Breakfast is delicious and you can have it on your private terrace. The cherry on top is the owner Ravi, because he is a wonderful, very friendly and polite host. He gave us great advice, took us to the lion rock and organised a Safari for us.

    The place itself is perfect. Room is clean and spacious. Has everything you need for a stay and visit of Sigiriya. The owner and manager Ravi is very friendly and welcoming. He gave us so many cultural and other information on Sri Lanka itself. The top of the stay was super awsome breakfast! The value is so high in standard for the price they ask. Overall we enjoyed our stay.

    Super nice and friendly hosts, best room and breakfast so far. We will definitely come back.

    The cottage owner Ravin's hospitality was great and he was willing to help to make my stay memorable. On the first day, he arranged a very nice Ayurveda spa and on the following day, he gave me a tour to the Sigiriya rock (he's an official tour guide so his guide fee is US$30 which is same rate for all other tour guides) and arranged a boat safari (US$30) afterwards. Although my stay there was only one night and two days, I fully enjoyed my stay there and I owe this to the owner Ravin for making this happen. The room is clean and nice and their breakfast was more than enough where you can eat outside your room in the balcony if the weather is good. The owner's brother owns a restaurant next door so there's a place to eat lunch or dinner if needed. I had my lunch there and it was good! There should be other restaurants nearby in close distance for other choices.

    The staff and the tiny cottage. The restaurant and hospitality from his brother. The TukTuk and the support finding the nice places. The talk about the animals of sigiriya.

    We had raining weather. Because if that the shower was cold (Solarshower). I like the idea to use the sun but a help heater for raining days would be maybe a good investment.
