This hotel is good, but nothing that makes it stand out. The bedroom was fine and the location was ok for access into Kandy. The food was ok too with a large buffet style selection making it easy to choose different curries whilst also catering for more western foods. Being quite tall and on the side of a hill, the...

I stayed here for a business trip. The hotel is nice and clean, the rooms are basic but large and the staff are really friendly and accommodating. The roof top restaurant has a lovely view, the breakfast and lunch were both really nice. The buffet lunch is a bit hit and miss but generally high a standard. The hotel is... More

Enjoyed a very good quality lunch break at the roof top restaurant at Kandyan Arts Residency as part of an organised excursion to Kandy. From the very warm welcome at the front desk to the extensive buffet lunch on offer, everything was of a high standard and very enjoyable.

2 adults, 3 kids. Could accommodate us all in 1 room (result!) If you're after a good base to sleep whilst you explore kandy consider here. It's pretty basic, but very clean and has friendly helpful staff. The food in the top restaurant is pretty decent and good value. We stayed 2 nights and thought that our stay was very... More

Nice, comfortable and large A.C room in a five story building. Excellent restaurant, serving until 10 p.m, and reasonably priced. Facing the hill and under the stars with a nice viewing of the Southern Cross. Nice bathroom with hot water, soap and shampoo.

Try the top floor restraunt and have a look at the amazing views. Food is OK, they will cook whatever you ask for. It is certainly inexpensive. A good stopping point if you are on a tour. great parking for your tour guide.

Stayed at this hotel on a business trip to Kandy. Convenient place within Kandy city limits. Easy access to all historical sites. Food was good but can definitely be better. The elevator is small and cramped up. corridors are narrow. Parking space available at the basement and at the front.

Nice modern hotel on the outskirts of Kandy about a 10 minute tuk-tuk ride into the centre. Good, clean modern room and bathroom with balcony. Had buffet dinner and breakfast in the hotel restaurant which is situated on the top floor. Both meals very good and good value. Reception and restaurant staff very friendly.

A short drive to the centre of town. Rather a strange place, interesting strange. The style is some what of a mixture but in an intriguing way. Rooms are large, quite basic but comfortable. Bathrooms are rather old fashioned and could do with updating. Really great photos of old Sri Lanka all over the hotel. Panoramic lift, not much panorama... More

Excellent place to stay. Centrally located with all facilities and a great view to the kandy hill side. The rooms are tastefully decorated with a small balcony which lets in fresh air. Choice of Cuisine is superb. The staff very very warm and friendly and a REAL ASSET to the Hotel. None will regret staying here.
