This really is an elegant hotel beautifully decorated with staff attending to you every minute. The owner is very proud of his hotel and makes you feel like a guest in his home. The food was fantastic especially the breakfast which was included and was a set menu. There was a huge variety and plenty of food. Staff were very... More

The staff were beyond friendly and accommodating, going as far as arranging our airport pickup and organizing day tours around Kandy; possibly one of the friendliest staffs ever! The location of the hotel is tucked away amid the beautiful countryside, and the view of the mountains from the hotel balcony cannot be beat! I would absolutely stay here again and... More

The owner takes a lot of pride in this hotel and it shows. A beautiful well maintained large pool that our kids took full advantage of. We reserved the super deluxe room on the top floor and had a nice balcony facing the pool to enjoy - which we did for lunch one day.

Elegant was our first stop in Sri Lanka where we are currently on our honeymoon. As its a special holiday we wanted to have a little bit of luxury and this remains the most upmarket place we stayed. The views from our window were absolutely fantastic (parrots in the trees and rolling hills dotted with mist) while the welcome was... More

Really enjoyed staying here. Great staff, food and very peaceful and relaxing place. The surroundings and views from the place are great but the hotel is in Gampola around 8-10 kms outside Kandy city. Will have to take tuk tuk to and from the place since it is also around 2 km inside from the main road and up the... More

A Beautiful Tranquil setting with a pool that gazes over mountains at the front within perfectly Manicured gardens, surrounded by bird song and butterflies. and a restaurant balcony overlooking more mountainous ranges and fruit trees, both of which are spellbinding. Highly attentive, friendly and happy staff. Great decor, comfortable bed and food that tantalises the taste buds, our favourite breakfast... More

My friend and I stayed here for one night as we travelled through Kandy. We loved it. I loved how proud the hotel owner was of his hotel, as he showed us around, and so he should be, having extended his home and turned it into a great hotel. It really was a find. Nice views and lovely pool. It... More

We arrived here after a long flight from the UK, having had our luggage go missing - it couldn't have been a better place to spend our first night in Sri Lanka!

We loved this hotel! Our upper floor room was clean with stunning views. The garden and pool are beautiful - I enjoyed my solitary swims in the pool just gazing at that view.
