I stayed at this beautiful hotel for 01 night and I am looking forward to return soon. Beautiful location with lots of greenery around, waking up hearing the sound of the birds,monkeys so much of nature, quiet atmosphere. Ideal for relaxation,staff were very helpful, reasonably good food for the price.

With so many hotels in Kandy, there is no reason to stay here. As mentioned by Phil T, it is down a long, winding road and is not close to anything - shopping, restaurants or tourist attractions. This hotel was selected for our birding group, and we took eight rooms. On entering the reception area, the first thing I noticed... More

Accessed via a steep, narrow and twisty road from the centre of Kandy this hotel is theoretically in a lovely setting in the forest, but it is let down by poor maintenance and service. The steps and paths down to the rooms were very slippery due to a thin layer of mould and were actually quite dangerous. One had to... More

The hotel s really in the middle of the Forrest and as such is dark and damp. We were supposed to stay for three nights but sated one. The room smelt... More

Located in the hills of kandy, marvelous view.surrounded with trees, calm and quiet so there is plenty of fresh air, which is veryyy relaxing. Both families loved the hotel. The manager and the staff were very friendly, the manager was willing to give a extra bed free of charge. If you want to get out of you daily tiring routine... More

The Manager is uncouth and uncivil, he does not know what the hospitality trade is. The food prices are exorbitant. On my visit, they charged me Rs 250/- (USD 1/87) per fried egg, whereas in Sri Lanka an egg costs just Rs. 15/- (USD 0/11). All their prices are designed to Rip off guests!! Mahinda W
