We were happily surprised by this hotel. Our rooms were big, very clean, fairly modern and very comfortable. The breakfast was huge and great. The staff was really helpful. I had a special request for breakfast… they accommodated with a smile. The location is a bit up a hill… so you need a tuk tuck to get there and away.... More

The hotel is situated on the hill with the city view. The dinner buffet is yummy with different menu everyday. The quality of massage at the spa is so good. The staff give the best efforts to satisfy the guests.

The rooms are updated and modern. They are very comfortable. Hostess is very friendly and helpfull. Hotel outside looks, the lobby and the swimmingpool are really out-dated. Hopefully it starts renovation soon. When that's done, could be a 4,5 star. We saw the new Sri Lankan president in the sister-hotel next to Topaz. Location; take a (cheap) tuk tuk for... More

This hotel was part of a three day tour and was a clean, tidy and modern hotel high in the hills of Kandy. We had New Years Eve/night here and the buffet dinner was lovely but the food was luke warm. The breakfast was not great compared to the other hotels we stayed in during this trip and again, luke... More

Although very much an international hotel the Topaz serves excellent local dishes at every meal, the pool is good and the staff helpful. It's a way up the hill (so gets a welcome breeze) but tuk tuks make it, just! In a city with few good restaurants I would recommend this.

We booked with the Tourmaline hotel but were sent to Topaz. About 6 people at reception, all looking at you, no one offers to help. Anything you ask them is a hassle and there was a particular young guy (with a bit of a 90s quiff) who was positively rude. The room /bed was comfortable, hot water consistent, we had... More

A good hotel to stay during the visit to Kandy. though the hotel is located a bit far away from the city center and other touristy places in Kandy. The only down side of the same is that the doors to the rooms do not have an automatic locking system, hence if two people are staying and one has to... More

We visited Kandy for four nights (I wouldn't recommend Kandy, very busy and chaotic with not a lot to do other than the temple, we spent days visiting nuwara Eliya and other nicer areas) it is not possible to walk to Kandy from this hotel but you can get a tuk tuk which will take around ten minutes. It does... More

A one night stop with adequate room that smelt musty. Wi fi free in lobby only but poor signal even there. Food average. A bit out of the way in the hills but nice views if it had been clear Would not stay longer there.
