Needs a few tweaks dialed in, but generally impressive. Great Breakfast and Lobby. Fresh Fruits and omelette bar. Service solid. Hard wood flooring and small museum of artifacts in Lobby bar interesting. Would recommend. Amazing history unfolded in this building. A real slice of colonial Sri Lanka.

The location is perfect if you need East access to all the tourist destinations on kandy. That's the only good thing about the hotel other than its friendly staff. The rooms are of poor quality. Really worn out and it looks so almost in every place in the hotel including its restaurants. Not worth the money unless you have a... More

I really like the public areas, pool, bar, etc. It was all really nice and I like the style. The location is really great with easy access to Kandy. My main concern are the actual rooms. They were very noisy, and we even had a room towards the pool and not the street and lake view. I would no t... More

This was the fourth time I stayed at the Queen's Hotel in Kandy. On our first night we were in a room on the 3rd floor in the West Wing. It was at an extreme corner and getting there was an exercise! They changed our room the next day and this was much better. I think the hotel is still... More

I don't like the old colonial look and clearly did not enjoy the outlook of this place. This would be an oasis to someone looking for the old look tho. The sheer locating itself gets this place a decent rating given its proximity to the sacred Temple of the Tooth and the new Kandy mall/ shops. Breakfast n Dinner spreads... More

In my opinion this is a hotel where to stay when in Kandy. Charming colonial atmosphere, great location and good service, especially the breakfast. It needs a renovation though, a good one, the bathrooms are badly outdated. I recommend you not to take a room on the lake side as the morning rumors are badly disturbing.

We stayed at Queens hotel just one night. Its a very nice charming hotel located right in front of the 'Tooth Temple". We just wanted to feel the history and thus enjoyed it. We stayed in a beatiful room under the dome on the third floor right in the center of the hotel. Its a great suit with two bedrooms,... More

This hotel was clean and charming and the food buffet was good. The people were kind, especially the door man. Clean and good room and a shower! My only fuss would be the street noise from the traffic. It was VERY NOISY. You can sleep through most of it but be prepared to wake frequently from the noise, at least... More
