This hotel exceeded our expectations in terms of the view and their service. We were booked into a ground floor room and were upgraded to an upstairs room with a stunning view. The rooms were spacious and clean. We had a dip in the pool which was super relaxing and the food in the restaurant was excellent. Highly recommended!

All the review below are accurate. This place is amazing if you are looking for a charming b&b, approx. 30min away from Kandy. The rooms have a beautiful vue. The garden and swimming pool are definitely rare in Sri Lanka. Don't hesitate to book here

First off I want to say our plane was delayed and we arrived at midnight, without getting the chance to call ahead of time to let anyone know. We arrived at the hotel, and the inn keeper was very welcoming and immediately brought us a welcome drink and got us settled into a room, without being able to communicate with... More

This is such a beautiful and peaceful place tucked away in stunning countryside 12kms from Kandy. We arrived at lunchtime full of plans to head off for the afternoon, but the 3 of us immediately decided just to hang out at the hotel instead. There are fantastic views from front and back of the hotel so you get both sunrise... More

Ok, so this hotel is difficult to find but when you get there it is soooo worth it. We were greeted by smiling, lovely staff who showed us around their beautiful hotel before taking us to our lovely room. The whole place was decorated with exotic flowers from their garden, and we were given a fresh juice with home grown... More

Loved everything about this place. Highly underrated!!! Beautiful views and garden - the sweet gardener was working the entire time. The staff are fabulous and so happy and helpful.

We loved our 2 nights at the Elegant Hotel and wish we could have stayed longer. It's about a 11km drive out if the city, which can take about 30 mins in heavy traffic (or less time usually - we were in town over a holiday weekend, so it was very busy). We were so happy to be staying in... More

The service was really amazing at this hotel, the staff didn't stop smiling and were really helpful. As it was our honeymoon they decorated our room with petals and we really liked their towel art! This place is a bit out of Kandy, which is great if you want some peace and quiet but if you wanted to just visit... More

Elegant Hotel was great! It is about 12km from Kandy but as we were there to relax we didn't mind. The walk down the hill to the village is lovely lots to look at.
