Great hotel in Kandy. Rooms large and comfortable, fantastic buffet for evening meal, and a good breakfast. Initial problem with safe which was quickly sorted, but very impressed with cleanliness, comfort and service. The bar was very attractive and pleasant for a pre dinner drink.

Although I'm not sure about the reference to Switzerland, this is a classy place with a bit of old-fashionned touch that gives it a romantic colonial style. Bedrooms are very large, clean and comfortable. The restaurant is a large ballroom with delicious buffet and grill. Large swimming pool. Bar and snooker table. A very nice place indeed.

The Suisse Hotel is a tired run down colonial hotel that needs significant investment to upgrade the rooms and general appearance. The staff were generally attentive and were friendly. we did not eat at the hotel so not sure what the food is like

We enjoyed the older style of this comfortable colonial-era hotel, an easy walk along the lake from the centre of Kandy. Our room and bathroom were both a good size and well-equipped with everything we needed. We could not get Wifi in our room (though others in our party could) but it was available in the Reception area and the... More

This also included an all you can eat buffet... More

This hotel reminded me of my convent schooling back in the 70's. It was full of charm and the rooms easily accommodated triple share for three adults. Great size room and bathroom. Wifi was available in the rooms. Buffet breakfast had a great selection in the dining room that looked like the original ballroom. Staff were welcoming and helpful. I... More

We chose this hotel based on reviews and its location next to the lake in Kandy and it didn't disappoint. Yes, it's old but that's part of its charm. We had a big room, comfortable bed and a good bathroom. The location was good, quiet part of town and a lovely walk along the lake to the centre of Kandy.... More

We chose this place because it was good value, well located and the reviews seemed fine. What we didn't expect was to instantly fall in love with the place. It is stately but not pretentious. It oozes charm with its polished floors, high ceilings and white walls. The service was friendly and attentive and the rooms are spacious and well... More

We went to Kandy as part of our holiday tour to Sri Lanka. We stayed in hotel Susse in Kandy. We booked the Colombo-bentota-kandy trip through Srilankatravelhouse.com.com just looking the location of the hotel and we got the fare deal.

We were instantly floored by the aura of this place. It has that distinct old British charm that only colonial style buildings have. Its true that some parts could do with some renovation but overall its a wonderful place to stay. The rooms were quite large and spacious and very well decorated with old pictures of Kandy and an adequate... More
