Pattaya, Thailand
Reviewed yesterday NEW

It has a lovely pool area and the rooms were excellent. Because it was some way from other dwellings, guests were effectively prisoners and as such subjected to high prices particularly on alcohol. The biggest shock, and this applies all over Sri Lankan tourist areas, was the sly addition of up to 27% of published prices. I don't mind voluntary...

The hotel itself was a little dated but clean enough. Polite, friendly staff who would go the extra mile to ensure you had a good stay. We were only passing through but enjoyed our stay and would definitely return for another visit

The food was great, and the hotel property was beautiful. The staff was subpar. I was asked inappropriate questions as a single woman traveler. I had a difficult time contacting the hotel before my stay and amending my reservation.

Set seemingly in the middle of nowhere, the Hotel Sigiriya was fairly obviously popular with tour groups. It seemed a fairly sprawling affair, with rooms set on one level in blocks off from the communal bar & restaurant area. The rooms were large with high ceilings with French doors leading out to the grounds. I had a couple of freeloaders...

The location s great, just five minutes drive from sigiriya rock, great if you want to get there for the 0700 opening time. Food is fresh, tasty and plentiful. Service is pleasant and unobtrusive. Sometimes the staff sing and play instruments in the evening as low key entertainment. Drinks are quite expensive at 750 Rs for a lion beer. Rooms...

We had an absolute amazing stay in Hotel Sigiriya! Everyone is super professional and very kind and helpful. The bedroom/bathroom is very spacious, clean and nice. The shower also had hot water! It's very close to Lion's Rock, most people walk but you can also take a tuk tuk for around 300 rupees - the hotel will call one for...

Set in a lush green area with a stunning pool view of 'The Rock' which is within walking distance. Friendly staff, good breakfast. Rooms a little dated (very little) but much better than we expected from some of the reviews here. We really liked it here and the pool area and gardens are just so beautiful and peaceful.
