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.

Really rundown hotels, very old, damp, smelly rooms, wouldn't recommend. Pool seems nice. At least its not far from center - 200 rp tuktuk ride. Wifi slow but at least works also in rooms. AC working OK.

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 Very old hotel with outdated facilities.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

Having read some of the previous reviews, I can only assume that the hotel has recently been renovated. We stayed here as part of a package tour and it was incredibly clean and our room was beautiful. There were two weddings during our stay but we were not disturbed in the slightest. The pool area was lovely and must be... More

We stayed here as a family of 5 (3 children) for a night, booked as part of our package tour. We were concerned about the poor reviews, but were in for a surprise. I think they must have renovated the place, because the room was spotless, the beds were brand new, the bathroom was clean and everything worked. We had... More

Very have been happy with this hotel this was our 3rd stay and we got a great welcome, never had a problem with the hotel. It's a little dated maybe 60-70's but has everything you could need except a kettle! Rooms on the back have more of a view but all are big and spacious, we have a big case... More

The hotel was booked by a local tour operator as part of a 3 day tour. All the poor reviews posted are unfortunately true. The hotel decor dates back to the 70's, furniture is used, carpet in the rooms smelly and worn out. Staff are rude - one of the employees jumped into the lift as we were about to... More
