This is a pleasant hotel in a nice setting on the river. It has a good swimming pool and the rooms are clean and large with balconies. The food was OK and there was plenty of choice for breakfast. The dining room is nicely situated around the pool. The service was good but not up to the standards of some... More

This hotel is ideally suited for a stopover in Kandy. The problem is that it's attempting to be a five star hotel and falling some way short. If they aimed a little lower but to do the basics very well, this would be a much better approach. It's expensive, by way of example, a mini Mars bar in the minibar... More

We were told this was a 5 star hotel but we didn't feel that it was during our stay. The hotel has an old charm with a great view of the river. It offers a scenic view and romantic feel especially at night. Our room on the other hand was a big disappointment. We understand it is a very old... More

Stayed for 2 nights with my family. The hotel property is beautiful and scenic but a few points let it down. The pool was freezing and this limited the amount of swimming we did. Service is very slow.... I waited 45 minutes for a drink and in the end cancelled it but the bar attendant didn't even apologise! The service... More

An hotel which is far above Sri Lanka standards, and the only 5-star hotel in the Kandy region (at least, thats what they say :-)) For those who want a massage when visiting Sri Lanka, wait until you have reached this hotel, because the Spa here is amazing! Also the dinner is of high standards. What i also liked: the... More
