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.

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

It was a very nice hotel owned by an Indian Kerala man married to a Lankan lady. It's on top of a hill. The rooms are nice with a beautiful view. There is also a restaurant on the terrace where good food is available. Pick and drop is also available in his awesome red volkswagon beatle! For more on Sri... More
