We were there for 2 nights. The reception was very informal but totally kind. The hosts are very polite and try to help you anytime. Especially Joseph takes time to give you some good hints. He'll offer you also to help you with bookings or tourist tours. If there is no other opportunity you can book them for a trip... More

This is a really nice hotel. with staff aiming to please. The manager helped us plan the rest of our trip with accommodations, driver,places to visit etc. They really wanted us to see the most and best of srilanka for a very good price. It would have been more expensive if we booked all this ourselves. We are more then... More

Didn't really liked it. Its more like a lodge with basic beds and a toilet attached. Our room had a dim yellow light which was very depressing. No room service. Upholstery was quite poor in quality. Only relief was toilet which was clean! Restaurant on the roof top has a good view but very slow service and poor food quality.

This is the second time I've stayed in the Majestic tourist hotel in Kandy and it was a very nice stay! The rooms are clean and comfortable and you will be provided with a cute, colorful blanket if the night gets cold. It's not exactly close to the main town but it makes up to that with the gorgeous view... More

The outside and the corridors suggest are better than the rooms themselves. The rooms and bathrooms are rather drab and lack sparkle. The wifi is only in the rooftop restaurant which is just not acceptable these days and even the most budget of hotels in Sri Lanka offer iti n most locations. The hotel advertises a bar but only sells... More

The hotel is one of the inexpensive, if the $ 30 is not expensive. Classic breakfast of fried eggs included. The hotel is located far from the center. But there is an advantage - it's a great view over Kandy. Pleased that the dining room is located on the top floor - on the terrace. For a fee you can... More

I stayed in the Majestic midway August for three nights. Location is great as it is not in the center of the city. Still easy access via foot to the city. Balconies have nice views towards the hills. Room was pretty basic. Big but a little worn down. Biggest nuissance was that the shower's drain didn't let water run through.... More

Let's not kid ourselves, this place is basic. But it's clean. The views are great and it's close to the lake and the town. The price is reasonable and if you want somewhere that's a relative bargain then this place is it. Breakfast is basic non Sri Lankan. There might be better accommodation options on offer elsewhere, so do your... More

From the day i arrived there i felt like home. The atmosphere was nice, the rooms clean and the owner was super helpful and cared so much. Btw: if you want to learn how to make curries, just ask the owner. He gives small courses and knows a lot about ayurvedic medicine. The hotel is very closed to the tooth... More
