Central location, about a 15 minute walk to the Lion Fortress entrance. Host is extremely welcoming. We arrived at 10 PM and had not yet had dinner - we were desperate for anything to eat. While he didn't have any dinner, he graciously offered us tea and snacks, which really helped. Other than that, he organized us a taxi back to Colombo the next day, and matched us with another couple so that we could split the cost. Rooms are pretty basic - but the rooms are not the point! He serves great breakfasts and will give you great recommendations on what to do and where to eat. I would definitely stay here again.

Delicious and big home-cooked breakfasts and dinners were a highlight. Very easy to communicate in English with Lal. Convenient location for bus drop-off (local bus from Dambulla dropped us off right outside). They hired bicycles which we used a lot. Lion Rock (and the other rock) were definitely worth experiencing, even considering the hefty entry price.

We arrived at Lal's home stay after a two night stay in Kandy and the drive took approximately 2 hours. Lal's home was nice and easy to find and the location truly is superb. Lal recommended a fantastic Ayurveda spa to us that is a short walk from his place, and suggested we hike up Sigiriya Rock early in the morning to avoid the crowds (the first tourists are let into the site at 7.00am). We got a delicious packed breakfast prepared for us to savour once we reached the top. Dinner was absolutely amazing as well and the dishes kept being refilled with more food than we could possibly eat. We stayed one night as a couple and our room was large and clean with a hot shower :) If you're passing through Sigiriya I definitely recommend spending a night at Lal's.
