We stayed two nights at Hotel Suisse. We arrived late afternoon and we were quickly checked in and shown to our room. The room was large, very nicely decorated in keeping with the old world feel of the hotel and had a good sized bathroom and lovely balcony above the outdoor bar area and overlooking the lake. The room was... More

We stayed in Suisse hotel for 3 nights. I think it is the closest hotel to Kandy city with calm environment. Staff were always helpful and cheerful. You can book this hotel online and once you produce the lodging voucher at the hotel premises they will give the room keys. That really time saving. We selected standard rooms and those... More

Although we only stayed one night in this hotel we really enjoyed it. Lovely rooms, with small balconies, friendly helpful staff and beautiful bar area. Lovely views out over the lake in Kandy and surrounding area. Wish we could have stayed longer.

Great oasis, fantastic building, great staff very friendly and brilliant breakfast! Highly recommend taking advantage of the tour/drivers that the hotel offers. For a mid afternoon snack the hotel bar serves deviled meats from the grill, spicy and ideal.

Used this hotel as a base for exploring in and around Kandy. Very old world charm about the place. Good location for exploring the sights of Kandy and also has a very useful tour desk so you can use them as a guide for prices when you need to plan trips. Nice swimming pool area but needs a bit of... More

I suspect food served here as source of nasty case of bacterial infection (probably shigella) which I suffered within hours of checking out. I had eaten only at hotel for 2 days immediately prior to onset of acute intestinal symptoms. Other signs that this hotel is poorly managed include the following: clogged bathroom sink drain; no follow-through on promise from... More

We arrived as part of a tour group and were given keys to our room. When we went inside we were greeted by a live mouse running across the bed and around the room. We contacted the concierge and they sent someone up to investigate. This person did not speak English and it was hard to get him to understand... More

Lovely hotel with a great view over the lake. In a good location too. Our room was spacious and clean and tastefully furnished. The restaurant and food couldn't be faulted, and even the evening entertainment while we dined was first class.

This old hotel is a comfy hotel with great shower, bed, fans and TV (not flat screen but with BBC). The dinner and breakfast buffets were great with fresh fruit juice made in front of you. Good variety and lovely service. You need to watch the mosquitoes in all areas and check the bed for bugs as one couple from... More

Enormous rooms with an excellent view of the lake but I did have water pressure issues in the bathroom. Buffet was top quality. Building itself is a lovely old colonial era type, with lots of classy touches.
