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

This tucked away hotel is cheap and cheerful with all your basic needs covered. The view from the top floor restaurant is superb as is the view from the bedroom that overlooks the jungle covered mountains. The food served is okay and I would advise you to get a tuk tuk (250 rupees) up to the hotel at night as... More

We have been budget travelling all year but found the Majestic basically below par. When we turned on the shower the water ran down the bathroom door, the towels were tiny, rough, threadbare and stained. Sheets were very stained and dirty. The whole place just seemed incredibly unkept, run down and dirty, we asked for a new room straight away... More

Lovely place to stay! Amazing view from our balcony, great food spacious room! They couldn't couldn't do enough to help you out... Bathrooms could do with a little update. But all other amenities more than make up for this! Highly recommend for a base in Kandy! Rach and Sarah UK

Post my visit to Galle, I reached Kandy via Colombo by train at around 9.00 pm. Since I had already spoken to the owner of the hotel a day earlier, he had advised me on the distance of the hotel from Kandy Railway Station (5 Kms takes 15-20 minutes) and the fare the Tuk Tuks charge (around 200 LKR). I... More

family driven hotel who are warmly welcoming guests and helps to make arrangements to visit anywhere with safety at economical rate. Good friendly staff and tasty foods. Not very noisy hotel with the crowd or neighbors. Walking distance to the Kandy city (approx.20-30 mins) Don't try to get in to a taxi very quickly from the Railway Station or Bus... More
