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

Food ok otherwise not worth considering. Stopped overnight as part of a tour organised by guide but would not have chosen to stay. Hotel forecourt more like building site and the place is dated and grubby. Not slept at all as rooms border a very busy road and noise constant. Had to clean shower before use and shower curtain needed... More

We were booked in here by tour guide cum driver who was showing some sights. It is a basic 3 star with reasonable rooms, but why are the floors carpeted, as they also are in the restaurant? Bar service not good, food is good, and that's about all one needs to say, it is OK for a night but one... More

We recently stayed at the Devon Hotel in Kandy. It was booked through our travel agent.. Its furnishing although looks recent and fairly new, its in a sloppy shape. There is pungent smell from the kitchens as well as the unwelcome smell of heavy alcohol as you enter the hotel as the bar is right at its entrance. We were... More

We recently stayed 2 nights at Hotel Devon. The hotel was chosen by our travel agent and it was just unpleasant. The first room we were given was spacious but filthy. There were black molds everywhere. The blankets were very smelly. The room was furnished from 1970s and I don't think they were cleaned since then. The room was extremely... More

For those of you looking for value for money this hotel is just the ticket, overlooked by banana plants and countryside. The Dhal curry and English options coupled with friendly staff make it a comfortable base to see the rest of Kandy. In the evening the hotel lay on a buffet with tables decorated fit for a wedding and a... More
