Stayed one night at The Change with our traveling friends. What a great little place - thought we were lost as we were driven km's in the rain and then we finally arrived at the end of the road. The owner has completed the modern decoration himself, the mosaic floor entry (using the old shower tiles), exposed rock in the... More

The Change Hotel is really nice. Amazing view from the hotel. Stuff was very friendly and helpfully. The food was delicious, the best we ate in sri lanka. The driveway to the hotel is a little bit difficult and the hotel is too far away from the citycentre without car.

The Change was a delightful place to stay. Yes it is high up over the city so transport is needed to get to and... More

We only stayed 1 night and only had breakfast here . As everyone has stated, it is out of Kandy and in a very hard to find area. The last bit of road, or track, is terrible. Rooms are good. We actually had a room with no a/c on the 2nd floor and it was fine. I think maybe normal... More

Location not ideal for those without arranged transport. However, one can enjoy nice view of Kandy from the room. Room was spacious but lack of adequate furnitures, same for the toilet. Our room did not have a key but they promptly gave us one upon request. Linen was not very clean, but I'm ok with the material. Meals were served... More
