This accommodation was amazing. The rooms were great. We loved our balcony. The area is very quiet but this place was close in distance to Sigiriya Fortress Rock and Pidurangala Rock. We met friends for dinner but I think the family here can also provide dinner if you request it in advance. The staff were really lovely. We would absolutely stay here again.

We stayed for three nights (a couple and two children under 10 years old). The family who run Darshani were welcoming, made us feel immediately at home. They helped us to arrange our sightseeing plans and the owner got up at 4.30am to take us to Pidurangala in his tuktuk. Breakfast was different each day and always delicious, even more so when sitting in the beautiful dining area surrounded by nature. We would love to return on our next trip to Sri Lanka and this was the perfect start to our trip!

This place had most of the amenities we required. The rooms are of a reasonable size and have air conditioning. Power cuts are routine but the property has a back up generator. The owner and staff were really friendly and helpful. He also had a tuk tuk that was able to ferry us to and from the main cluster of restaurants in the area for a reasonable price. It would have been a bit of a walk otherwise. There is an open area of land and we did spot some nice bird life. Breakfast is pretty standard by Sri Lankan standards, continental with heavily fried eggs. I was a bit miffed with a USD $5 "air conditioning fee" slapped on at checkout. It's not so much that there was one levied but that it wasn't flagged in advance. I like to know the full cost of a property before I book it.

We stayed here for two nights and had a great time. Beatiful room, waking up with the sound of birds and enjoying the garden and an explanation of all the trees and fruits by the owner in singalees. We learned a lot about it and were able to try some new fruits. Also breakfast and the dinner they prepared were delicious. Highly recommended.

Amazing place! Such warm hospitality - it’s a family run lodge and you are really made to feel at home. The family constantly went above and beyond to make our 3 nights special, only wish we could have stayed longer! The room was very clean and comfortable. The location is fantastic - close to all the key sights but still peaceful and quiet. Hope to visit again soon. Kirsty & Katja x
