The hotel took extra effort to serve us veg food for breakfast and dinner. They served custard apple juice too! The swimming pool is good and free for use by guests. Thoughtful staff at the restaurant.

rooms and overall appearance just average, but food is very good. A bit far from the city center exactly but worth a small stroll down the road and by the picturesque Kandy lake. Rooms need lot of upholstering and more provisions. House keeping staff are very good otherwise and helpful.

Devon is an okay place. The food is okay but the location is not attractive. Situated very close to kandy but there is no serinity nor nice view or any such thing. Just good as a place to stay the night. The only advantage is that it is very close to kandy town and the Temple of Tooth Relic.

This hotel is well located in Kandy where accessibility to other attractions is good. View from room is good. Being old construction, there are areas, this hotel requires reconstruction. My room was cozy, no smell or dampness. Service was also good. Restaurant was also good with ample choice of food. Nice and courteous staff.

Maybe it used ti be a nice hotel, but now it's really old, smelly, poor. AC was working fine, also WiFi in the lobby and in a room. Breakfast in a smelly dining room... not so nice. But... it is close to the city centre... just around 200 rup with tuktuk.

avoid this! We had a terrible experience here. The food was very average, but the service was extremely poor. It looked as if none of the waiters want to work there and they could not care lesser that there are customers in the restaurant.

little away from kandy city center and nothing to do in the hotel itself. but big and comfortable rooms. Not recomended for food because not many variations. just basic buffet. friendly staff. bed and breakfast rate is attractive and value for money. can go to dalada maligawa in 5 min. nice bathrooms. large and comfortable bed.

I had read earlier reviews about this hotel and decided on this place. Please don't recommend this place to anyone. The Lift stinks of sewer. Very old hotel with outdated facilities. The air conditioning was not working fine. No TV channels working. Room service is horrible. They don't clear the plates from the alley outside the rooms. When we checked... More
