Our tuk tuk driver dropped us here for lunch and it turned out to be possibly the worst restaurant experience of my life. We should have turned around as soon as we saw the hordes of tour buses parked outside. Indeed, the place was full of huge tour groups, and had the inflated prices to match. The restaurant is on...

We came to Sri Lanka to see the culture and eat the food. However the tour guides have to take you to registered places. This is one of these. The cost is 1200lkr excluding the tax and 10% service which we objected to as it was a buffet so you served yourself. We ate well in Negombo for half that... More

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.
