Perched on the hill top with a nice view, it's a comfortable and clean place. Although it's fairly big, it still feels cozy. The breakfast buffet is excellent with a large variety of choices. They also have a small swimming pool for a dip to cool yourself down. The staff are very friendly and quick to cater to your needs.... More

Never mind after that it was all fantastic. Food was good and staff at the restaurant and the bar were really polite and courteous. Room... More

Stayed here for 2 nights while on a tour. The Hotel is at the top of a hill obviously and has decent views of the Kandy town area and railway station (you will hear the toots early in the morning though). Rooms are reasonably big by Sri Lankan standards and are clean and comfortable.Reception can be quite a hike though... More

A nice old hotel, we had a british colonial feeling when we stayed there for three nights. A steep narrow road up to the hotel, but it was no problem for us. Nice views, and some monkeys outside the windows, which we thought was very cool. The pool was very nice. The rooms were also very good, but maybe the... More

Perched on the side of a fairly steep hill just out of the central area of town, this is a very touristy hotel. On the face of it there are some reasonable facilities. Swimming pool, wifi, games, bar etc. The restaurant was horrible. Local naff band walking around the tables, slow service and packed with westerners. However, the breakfast was... More
