We were accommodated in a new annexe, which was OK but does not have the charm of the older bungalow-style rooms. Location excellent, in sight of the Lion Rock, Good food at the buffet dinner, of which the chef is rightly proud

Melrose Villas is a lovely friendly place to stay. The rooms are bungalow style with verandas for sitting. Like much accommodation in Sri Lanka there are quirks about the room which could be improved such as having some storage for clothing and more hooks on which to hang towels/dressing gowns etc. We found this lacking in many hotels on our...

Spent one night in Melrose Villa. Good conditions for the offered price; though some renovation (broken window) was required. Because of the rain could not explore the surroundings. However, we were extremely surprised by the dinner, offered in a buffet variant: the most delicious Lankan food during our two-week stay in the island, offered by the Chef. Recommended for the...

Great place to stay while visiting Sigriya. There are some good walks nearby, though the co-owner can get a bit over-protective with his guests. Great staff and a cook who serves up some great food, which he obviously takes great pride in.

Me and my boyfriend spent two nights here. The villas are very close to sigiriya but you need to go there with a driver as we were. The place is very good and quiet so you can have a very good sleep. The staff is very kind. Breakfast wonderful with fruit, egg, omelette and tea or coffee. The bathroom has...

I'm nearly 60 and have never posted a review, but this time wanted to publicly praise the chef for the most superb food. We're vegetarian, and could not have asked for a more wide-ranging menu. Buffet served every evening (which included meat options too) and also with various vegetarian mains and salads. All wonderfully cooked. It was a real pleasure...

we stayed two nights in Melroseplace guesthouse, a very quiet and peacefull place, a very good rest from our roundtrip. The dinner every evening was the best we had in 3 weeks travelling Sri Lanka. We had the choice between western style and sri lankan style, which both we really can recommend. The cook worked abroad in big hotels for...

All positive preceding descriptions say it is true. Excellent location, super cook (the best food in Sri Lanka, which we got) and the whole team is very approachable. Whatever you want, you get it the best possible way. In our example, we wanted to go fishing and immediately started to make equipment for fishing. The villas location is like in...

This Italian expat is a despicable human being and this hotel should be avoided by all. Our travel plans changed beyond our control, and the guy made us pay for the full 2 nights rather than the one we had stayed. Not only this, he actually imprisioned us by locking the gate as to refuse our passage off the property...
