I was traveling with my friends and our driver messed up our plans by taking us to the hotel even though we were supposed to go to the hotel another day. We arrived around 1AM and everyone was sleeping already. While we were sitting in the car feeling confused, the driver started waking the hotel staff up. We felt really... More

We very much enjoyed taking breakfast on the terrasse with a beautiful view. Nice breakfast (even though the jam could be improved). Nice dinner cooked by the owners. They were also very friendly and gave a lot of good advice and gave us occasionally a lift to town. Good Wifi, also in rooms on last floor. Once we got an... More

We had a wonderful stay in this hotel. The family running the place is very kind, they will do everything to help you with your stay in Kandy (provide taxi driver, advices....). The rooms are very big, new and clean. The food is incredible ! Even if it located a bit far from the center (max 10 minutes in tuktuk... More

It is not a 5 star hotel so don't expect it to be one and remember that you are not paying like a 5 star hotel. I ranked it very highly due to the service and friendliness received from the owner and staff, the atmosphere around the place, the view from the roof terrace, the fresh and delicious meal prepared...

The title says it all. It was a good location, around 25 minute walk to Temple of the Tooth and other attractions. Rooms are basic, but the price reflects this well I believe. Western basic breakfast available. Restaurant is good value with great home cooked meals. I broke my toe on one of my days sightseeing and the staff were... More

We stayed here for 6 nights and were on the whole very please. The location is great - short walk into town down a steep hill ( we got a tuk tuk back every time because were lazy!)

We stayed at the Majestic Tourist Hotel in Kandy for four night during our two week holiday. The owners were just lovely and the place is very relaxing and feels like a home away from home. Kumari (the owner) helped us organise a driver and one of the days we traveled to Dumbulla and Sigiri. Nothing was too much trouble... More

Location was fine, walking into Kandy was quite pleasant, although a tuk tuk back, especially when it's dark. The hospitality here was very good and I would love to say good things about my room but unfortunately, it smelt of damp and only had one plug socket that didn't work. I moved rooms after this and the new room was... More

First impression of the hostess was not good, specially after a long journey. The food was nice. Rooms were dirty, but they cleaned when we brought it up. We stayed only one night and left to find a more central and cheaper place.
