Shortcomings can be adjusted but hotel staffs were not courteous and were rude,, wen v were waiting for the lift, staff pushed us aside and entered with the manager as soon as the lift arrived... V had to walk to our room...... More

To start with, the hotel has a creepy looking lift that starts your ghostly adventure. We stayed here for 1N and I'm glad about that as at night, there were weird noises at the top and we apprised the hotel staff who clarified that these are birds. I wonder how birds can create such scary noise. even the Aircon and... More

So for 2 nights we did not sleep at all. The dining room was smelly, glasses and plates also were smelly. Waiters were... More

Rooms are clean and the view is is great (though most views of Kandy are pretty great!). We were there at Vesak Day so our original hotel choice was booked up. The staff at Devon are very nice but compared to the standard we experienced in the rest of Sri Lanka, Devon is a little bit clunky- the one lift... More

The hotel is good and the staff is nice and polite. View from the room, showing hill range, was beautiful. Breakfast spread in buffet was rather limited. The location is off the main roads. Overall nice place to stay.

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.
