All staff very helpful and will go out of their way to ensure you have a good stay e.g give you the log on to their own personal wifi if other one not... More

It's operated by owners (very friendly) and similar to Bed&Breakfast places. They have a roof top sit out (nice views) for serving food. Other than breakfast they make food only if someone orders. The hotel is about 15-20 minute walk from the lake. The room is OK for 1-2 nights. There is no wardrobe/hangars, but simple/old stand. There is no... More

We stayed there for six days in August and it was just perfect. The hotel has a great location-approximately 2km away from the city center (tuk tuk costs 200rupees/a bus ride costs 13 rupees). It is surrounded by vegetation and it has a great terrace with a wonderful view over the hills. We have been sitting there for hours and... More

After our 8 days tour in Sri Lanka and after sleeping in different places I can say that we had the best time in Kandy thanks to the owner's daughter of Majestic Tourist Hotel.Thanks to her we really got to know the Sri Lankan Culture. The staff was very welcoming though we arrived really late and without booking. Very helpful... More

This hotel was cheap, and basic but reasonably priced. Hotel staff were very nice, their English wasn't amazing but that's not something you expect more something you respect. However even when not understanding us they tried very hard to and still figured a way to help us. A tuk tuk into town should be between 300-600rupees one way, you can... More

We stayed here for 7 nights during the Esala Perehera, an easy stroll or tuktuk ride into town. Kumari and her husband Joseph are the owners and are always available to chat, advise and inform. Dinners were very tasty and rooms were spacious with good sized bathroom. Open air dining area upstairs had a wonderful view. Kumari attends monthly meetings... More

When I arrived at the hotel, nobody was at the reception counter after waiting for 10 min, one of the owners (female, there is another male boss) went down from... More

I can't recommend this hotel enough. We arrived by tuk tuk (don't pay any more than 250 Rupees from where the bus drops you), and were met by the kind and accommodating staff here. The owner is fantastic - he cooks everything fresh for you, and all the staff are happy to help with anything you should need. He said... More
