The staff were excellent, extremely friendly people. The cooking was incredible from both the father and the son. If you stay you have to try the curry, it was incredible. We did the day tour with the Owner who was really friendly and always gave us the truth about prices. (If you do do the tour make sure you go... 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

Very nice rooms (except for cold showers), helpful staff & brilliant view from the roof. Free brekkie was good. Wifi was pretty patchy. Location was slightly far out from town centre but either get a bus from end of road (10 rupees) or a tuk tuk (more like 200). Would stay here again as is pretty good value.

We enjoyed our 4 night stay at the majestic tourist hotel and the owners were very helpful and accommodating- lovely people. We arrived with just two nights stay booked but at very short notice the owners kindly let us stay 4 nights! Our room was just what we needed, clean and spacious and a great view from our balcony -... More

The best thing about his hotel is the view from the rooftop restaurant with views over Kandy. The location is pretty good, just a short tuktuk ride from the town centre but away from the busy roads. Our room was somewhat grim with old furniture, towels that should have been retired years ago and the noisiest plumbing ever. In the... More

Me and my 3 friends really enjoyed our stay at Majestic - which is owned b the sweetest couple, Joseph and Kumari. They were so helpful at arranging tours for us around Kandy in different cities. They have the best drivers and we really felt we were taken good care of. Their hotel is located on a hill only 5... More

I wish there was a 'good' rating because it was better than average, and not enough to classify as very good. My room was big and bright ... although I don't know where any of the 'photo's' came from ... certainly wasn't my room. I was on the 2nd floor and managed to score a 'balcony room'. Worth it, as...
