I stayed at Lion Rest for 4 nights in the bungalows - deluxe room. The rooms look like in the photos, equipped with mosquito nets, with air conditioning and fan, kettle, tea and sugar. They are positioned in a real garden, in the jungle - a little heaven. But the most important thing is the atmosphere created by Lakmal and his beautiful family. Available at any request, pick up from the train station, organization of trips to Pidurangala for sunrise, organization of safaris in Huru National Park, excursion on Lyon Rock, participation of Buddhist procession at Dambula Temple, visit Polurannuwa historical site. And all this at an extremely fair price. Exceptional breakfast and dinner, with traditional dishes prepared by "My Mama". We came as tourists and broke up as a family. We will definitely choose Lion Rest when we return. We recommend 100%. Thank you! Lili @ Nicky "Rose" @Victor

We had a really good time at Liyon Rest! Lakmal was genuinely the best host we could wish for, a really kind and pure person. He picked us up from Anuradhapura when we arrived by train and drove us to his beautiful home which felt like being in the middle of the jungle. We had a comfortable room and delicious local food, mostly prepared from his own garden by his parents. We were sad to leave as he drove us to Kandy after visiting a few more landmarks on the way. Thank you and your lovely family a lot Lakmal!

We stayed here for two nights. The location was really central and the house we had was perfect. It’s a small hotel with 4-5 houses. The garden was amazing. The host was really really friendly and really welcoming. We had dinner there and the mom cooked the best meal for us. We even had new years breakfast which they prepared for us. I would definitely recommend this place.

Me and my boyfriend had a really warm welcome here. The owner is super friendly, helpful and his English is great. You can tell that he is so proud of his beautiful hotel and his garden. The room was very clean and comfortable. Also, the food the owner's mother made was so delicious!!

Stayed here for one night. On arrival the owner greeted us and his wife brought us tea. Asked if we wanted to have dinner there so we asked for dinner at 6:30pm absolutely no problem. Had dinner cooked by the owner’s mother it was one of the nicest we had while in Sri Lanka. And had buffalo curd and coconut syrup for dessert it was delicious! Didn’t have money with us so it was no problem the owner said to pay in the morning on checkout. Couldn’t do enough for us! Room was very nice and clean. We had some little visitors in our room in the form of a small frog and lizard, this wasn’t a concern for us. Overall very nice stay. Probably our favorite accommodation we had during our trip.

Comfortabel rooms/beds- good working airconditioning and Wifi, hot water and sbove all excellent food. Very friendlyand helpful owner/staff. And to top it all, one late evening we had a visit of 5 wild elephants in the back garden. Gerrit de Kiewit
