Lovely room with balcony and great views. Communal seating area on each floor. Friendly and helpful staff, good wifi. Approximately a 15 minute walk down the hill and alongside the lake in to the centre of Kandy. There are plenty off tuk tuks and taxis if you don't fancy the walk. We didn't eat at the hotel as breakfast wasn't... More

First, in terms of the location, the hotel is just a touch out of the way. However, that means that the area is a little bit mellower. As the name suggests, it's on a hill. The hotel has two entrances, which makes it a bit more convenient. The one along the bottom gets you to Kandy lake in about 8... More

My father and I checked in later in the evening at 9pm and told them that we wanted to go for a drink at Helga's Folly down the street and were told that we needed to be back by 10pm and then they pushed it back to 10:30pm. I don't think I have ever been given curfew from a hotel... More

Amanda Hills in Kandy is simple but cozy and comfortable place to spend your holidays. Walking distance from city center & overlooking beautiful Kandy Lake & historical Sri Dalada Maligawa (the Temple of the Sacred Tooth Relic, Buddhist temple) makes your stay very pleasant & convenient. Rooms are very comfortable & clean. Free Wi-Fi is provided and works well in... More

After hotel hopping in Kandy for a few nights I found that Amanda Hills offered the best hotel facilities for the price range. I was looking for a hotel away from the noise of the inner city yet within walking distance and this is perfect. My room comes with a balcony (no view), good sized bedroom with overhead fan and...

We stayed here for 2 nights late October. The room was nice and clean and staff seemed friendly. The included breakfast was really good - pot of tea, pancakes, omelette, toast, fruit, hoppers, coconut sambol and Dahl. The only down side to this hotel was they didn't sell beer. It is a pleasant walk along the lakeside to Kandy centre... More

Although this hotel is up a steep hill ( need a tuk tuk 200 rupees) and you need to climb up 3 or 4 flights of stairs, it is well worth making the effort! The people working here can't do enough to help and will also give you good advice on how to get to places. Jude the manager will... More

We had a good stay a Amanda hills, we were the only guest there and perhaps it's a bit overpriced. But the staff were really helpful and nice. Breakfast wasn't included but was great. Very nice view from the upstairs balcony. Remember to eat at Sharon inn next door.
