We were very happy we stayed here after arriving to Kandy and seeing the other hotels in comparison. The most popular of places to stay were located on noisy and hectic streets, or else they were too far out of town. However, The Peak Residence was only a little tuk tuk ride up the hill from the busy city and... More

My father booked this hotel based on reviews from tripadvisor. What a disappointment! The view from the roof terrace is very nice. The concierge/man behind the desk was very helpful Unfortunately, that's as positive as it gets. The rooms were dirty amd hopelessly dated in design. There was mould all around the bathtub and windows. Dust all over the curtains.... More

The facilities are basic, a little aged but spacious and clean. There is wifi available and the bed rooms have air conditioning and a ceiling fan. (Only one works at a time though). Each room is equipped... More

Nice hotel very close to Kandy walking distance to Kandy town and the temple of the tooth and the wakarawatha forest which was a tea estate many years ago which has many species of birds and other wild life and famous for monkeys if you are lucky you have chances of seeing leopard's too

The good thing about this place: It has a splendid view, as it is in the hills overlooking Kandy. And the rooms have air condition - which you hardly need, however, as they only have thin sheets for cover for the beds, and if you ask for other blankets, you get heavy sets which look as if they have been...
