Stopped here for 2 nights whilst travelling the country and wished we had been able to stay for longer. I am not a huge fan of Kandy but this little gem was wonderful. Food excellent, staff attentative and friendly, breakfast vast choices and the pool is very pretty and clean. All rooms were large and very clean. Only slight disappointment... More

Stayed here only one night but was impressed. Nicely situated above Kandy in a quiet location with good views over the valley. The hotel felt spaciously laid out with a central pool, which unfortunately closed at 6pm. The rooms were well equipped, kettle etc. Decent shower. Supper was a fairly lavish affair with tasty local and international foods at the... More

OK location. Walkable distance to town. Tooth temple can be reached by foot in less than 30 minutes. Fantastic breakfast with huge selection of local dishes. Comfy beds but hard pillows. Big rooms and great view. Standard rooms are facing the train and road which creates some noice, but not too bad at night. The hallways are paved with tiles,... More

Couldn't thank my travel agent enough for this amazing property. Beautifully done up rooms, with a nice pool, and table tennis. Lively atmosphere in the evening with a super awesome live band. We loved sitting in the evenings in the restaurant and enjoy the songs and music by a srilankan group who would sing for everyone sitting there.Very friendly staff.... More

Good place, very centrally located. Full of retired Eastern Europeans. Buffet breakfast was great. Very big range & good food. Located on top of a large hill. Wifi was terrible but that's not a huge issue. Watch out for the monkeys getting in your room. They'll steal anything they can get their hands on. Rooms were clean & decent enough.... More

The only positive things I can say is that the hotel is situated high up which makes for nice views across Kandy, the rooms and decor are simple but clean, however the reason for the one star is as follows: There was a large group of around 30 Australian tourists who had positioned themselves in a big circle using all...

First impression - the climb up the hill to the hotel is pretty cool but not for the faint hearted, it is pretty high up! Upon arrival the staff seemed surprised to see us coming in and we had to approach them first. There appeared to be a bit of confusion like they weren't entirely sure what they were doing... More

This is not a place I would recommend, the room was over the railway station with trains and their whistles blowing on the hour every hour, the food was mediocre and some staff were not all that interested which is a rare event in Sri Lanka and certainly not experienced in the other 7 Hotels visited. Our room had a... More
