My husband, myself, 20 year old son and 15 year old daughter stayed here for 2 nights in December and had a really memorable stay. We were all accommodated in the top floor king suite which was extremely large including the bathroom and it had the most amazing views. Yes there is an amazing steep driveway but otherwise it is...

Booked for two nights in February. Arrived with great difficulty finding the place. Up an extremely steep hill a long way from Kandy. Even steeper drive to the hotel entrance. No one in sight when we arrived. Looked around and all looked a bit dirty and shabby. No grounds so nowhere to sit outside except balcony. When a member of... More

we stayed over there for 3 nights just before New year 2014/15- Kandy is quite rainy (still worth it so!) but this place was really good: some beautiful rooms and amazing staff ready to do anything to accomodate our noisy family (10 of us, 3 generations)- really recommended- Annabel

I know it's too late to rite this review as I stayed in this hotel 1 year back in February 2014. It was the first day of our honeymoon and we had a great start. Courteous staff, delicious food, lovely room and awesome ambiance. I would definitely stay here again if I re-visit Kandy :)

I had a Sri Lanka Rough Guide edition from year 2012, and this hotel is not mentioned there. So I guess it is quite new in town and even tuk-tuk drivers couldn't always find the place at the first place. We were offered upgrade without charge for suite room, but we had to decline, cos the suite room didn't had... More

This is situated in an amazing location, up a somewhat scary tiny road raked very steep at the end. But what a view across to the other side of the valley! The entrance hall and staircase is something to behold. We stayed in one of the suites at very reasonable cost that was more than comfortable. Very informative owner and... More

Large colonial house on steep hillside. Impressive staircase and stunning views of the town and hills. Large en suite bedroom with big comfortable 4 poster bed and balcony. Unfortunately decor is worn and tired. The room could do with a deep clean. We were disappointed that this was not done despite bringing it to management attention. Food was only average... More
