The worst hotel in 40 years of world travel. This is NOT a hotel but a disco with rooms. They played extremely loud "music"until 1.30am and stopped only after I got dressed, tracked down the "manager" and offered to remove his head. NEVER stay in this joint if you want any peace and quiet. The "manager"has absolutely no respect or... More

Beautiful hotel, nice large room with a balcony. Great pool. There was a nice size gym which I used. Since we had booked half board we had breakfast and dinner at the hotel. The buffet had a large selection of breakfast items and dinner, lots of fresh fruits and juices. There was a local group playing classical music at the... More

We stayed in a suite in this hotel in April 2015. I will simply say it was a big disappointment that spoiled our stay in Kandy. I still can't believe this is a 5-star hotel! We found 2 lizards in the room. When I chased them while waiting for help, I found out that they actually dwell in the room,... More

Had it not been for the food (lack of choice and somewhat unappetising in comparison with meals consumed elsewhere in Sri Lanka, including Kandy) I would readily have voted this the best hotel that we stayed at while in Sri Lanka. The room was certainly the best that we stayed in whilst in Sri Lanka (both in terms of size,... More

We only stayed for one night but had a great time. Service was 5-star along with food and surroundings. Very beautiful place with nice amenities. Breakfast was excellent also Only downside was vvvvv tiny ants in bedroom (ghost ants). They are typical in this type of climate and have seen them before in Florida and other places but would expect... More

Reservations staff did not acknowledge my advance payment; I had to call twice to get them to send me an email confirming payment. Hotel facilities are excellent. Room is very large, huge almost. Bathroom extremely well stocked. We had a large comfortable bed. The shower area is inside the tub; this was uncomfortable and a little unsafe. Water flow is... More
