Elephant Corridor Hotel
Ranked #15 of 21 Hotels in Sigiriya
Reviewed 1 January 2018 via mobile

A good hotel located very near to all major attractions of sigiriya & dambulla. From the hotel lobby you can see “The Rock”. The hotel is spread across many acres of lush green jungle, swimming pool is well maintained, room size is pretty large. The room we stayed had in room swimming pool as well. Using bicycle you can roam around the property. Food quality for Dinner & Lunch is quite good. Only problem i has with breakfast, the choices are very limited & highly overpriced..

Stayed: December 2017, travelled with family

This hotel is highly overrated. It was a lovely location and a great concept but very badly maintained and managed! First they messed up my reservation by giving me a wrong room rate -even though they upgraded me to a royal suite at the end which I’m thankful for. But I was disappointed to see that the hotel is badly maintained with some room lights being not functional, private pool filter - damaged; room service was not responsive (I had to call them two times to clear the dirty dishes but not responded at all)

The restaurant staff is not proactive and attentive. I guess they were not experienced and not properly trained! Food choice is very limited. Check-in and check-out is not fast enough even though some of the front desk staff are very helpful and courteous.

It’s really sad to see the management has let the quality levels go down. This used to be a great hotel with exceptional service levels but sadly it’s not the case now.

Hotel manager - Asanka has been supportive and helpful but I guess that’s just not enough without the other things being low! The location and the setup is lovely and I honestly believe they have a great potential to be “great again” if they fix their service levels and quality standards.
