After staying here I can really see why Elegant Hotel has such great reviews and deserves 5/5. Staying across a variety of hotels, guesthouses and B&Bs around Sri Lanka this place is without a doubt one of the best places we stayed in. The hotel is immaculate, the surrounding views are wonderful, the staff are wonderfully friendly and attentive and... More

The place is little away from main city but is a great getaway to relax. The room was huge and had a common outside area on one side with a great view, this area is accessible from room. There is small open sitting area outside the room facing the pool and again a great view. The room and bathroom were... 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 surroundings and views from the place are great but the hotel is in Gampola around 8-10 kms outside Kandy city.

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.
