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. It takes us 3 hours to reach the hotel from Colombo which was our first destination. The hotel is located... More

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

This colonial hotel has lovely service and amenities. The room was huge and very nice, with lovely wooden floors. The staff were very polite and helpful. The location on the lake made for great views and nice walking. I was there when a wedding was on, which meant there was loud music playing in the afternoon, but the noise was... More

Needs renovating. Pool ok but needs a bit of atmosphere - too open. Rooms nice but bed was very hard. The wifi was good. It's a good location and you can walk round the lake and over the bridge into town.

Search around, there are nicer places for half the price. The staff were unfriendly and unhelpful. Do not go. We weren't allowed to leave to get food with out paying again along with many other problems we encountered, with the pool boy. Would definitely not go or recommend

We booked this hotel for $65US a double. It was our favourite stay in Sri Lanka - it was early in our trip, so it was only as we moved that we really appreciated just how good it was - we took it for granted early on. It is a colonial feel place - which is lovely. Lots of wood,... More

Good price for a fantastic hotel. Stayed for one night this trip (have stayed at Suisse previous trips to Kandy) and the food is always great, was served buffet style offering many different options with live music and candlelit tables, offered a warm and relaxing atmosphere to eat great food. The rooms are clean as well as the bathrooms. Hot... More

Spend 3 wonderful nights here in this amazing bustling city. The rooms were ok but the hotel has a wonderful fading grandiose. The dinner buffet was excellent. Sitting outside sipping cocktails in 30deg heat in the evening felt like stepping back in time. Glorious. Watch the bats by the pool. Great!
