The room looked really outdated even though they have tried to renovate the interiors. Then bed was bad.with very average mattress. even the toilet... More

Hotel is near the great lake in the centre of city and to the temple of Budha it is like 15min of walk. Buildind looks nice, but inside you are going to find outdated hotel. Lobby is ok, elevator was working, but rooms are disaster: good looking first, but not working sockets or making short-circuits for whole level. I made... More

An average hotel in kandy. Little out side kandy town. Need to go in a road called ampitiya. Well the hotel is not good. Service is bad. The only thing i would say is slightly ok is the food. But its seriously over priced. The hotel is abit far from the heart of the town. The three wheel people will... 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
