My family and I stayed at this hotel for a couple of nights on our holiday to Sri Lanka. We stayed in a villa next to the restaurant at the hotel and would recommend staying in one of these rooms. The rooms were very big, clean and had great views of the river. The pool looked beautiful. It was quite... More

We're here for only 1night. The property is beautiful, the room okay, the greeting really good and the buffets truly terrible. Skip the half-board or expect to be disappointed -you've been warned! Lots of women in full black with only the eye slits and then even with sunglasses even at night. Tons of kids in the pool towards dinner.

We stayed here for one night on our tour of 'The Cultural Traingle.' A lovely looking colonial-style hotel in a beautiful setting by the river. However, beyond this first impression, the hotel was most disappointing. Once we were in our room, we discovered that toilet flush did not work. There were ants in the wash hand basin, and a broken... More

First of all it's in Kandy. Secondly - very friendly staff and nice service. Rooms are very big and have comfortable bed and very nice tea bags (not Lipton, but true Sri Lankan tea). Restaurant is good. Spa is just rebranded and absolutely new and clean. I recommend!

This place knows the meaning of the word 'Hospitality'. From the moment you enter it's doors you are made to feel welcome. EVERYONE smiles and acknowledges your presence, the staff are courteous and attentive to your needs. The rooms are large with comfortable beds and well appointed bathrooms with every convenience provided for. The views from the river facing rooms... More

This was my second visit, after 3 years, and I unexpectedly did not enjoy it as much. I found some of the attention suffocating, but when I actually needed help it was not forthcoming. I formed the opinion the customer service was a bit like window dressing, without any real substance. It is still a beautiful place but the staff... More

My spouse and I, and one other, stayed two nights during a private tour of Sri Lanka. The building was palatial, the setting lush with beautiful gardens, and the staff warm and very helpful. Our room was stunning, spacious, well-decorated, and included a balcony overlooking the pool area. We had some problems the first night with flickering electricity, then an... More

Moment we reached hotel we were given a very warm welcome that seemed came from heart. Within minutes we were escorted to our rooms. Rooms were comfortable. Breakfast buffet had array of dishes to satisfy every palate. Service was impeccable. Great experience.
