My second stay here and was given a 5th floor room with a nice view. Same friendly staff with good housekeeping service. Food is above average and breakfast buffet is of good quality although no new dishes. They do have events here and can be disruptive at times but you can take advantage of a free show this way.

We arrived at this hotel after a long trip and were looking forward to the hotel we saw in pictures and the rave reviews we'd read. We were immediately disappointed to see that a large marquee was being set up between the swimming pool and the river, effectively blocking off the view from the reception, bar and restaurant area.

Of the hotels on Kandy, this is probably the only one that can claim solid links to Sri Lanka's aristocratic past and its' heritage. It is located on the Banks of the longest river in Sri Lanka the Mahaweli river from which the hotel has got it's name. It is an excellent place with majestic architecture and a grand setting....
