The location is excellent right across from the main tourist spot. We had slow elevator rides, and noise through the thin single-pane windows, but this is worth it for such a historic building with high ceilings, hardwood floors and oversized stand-alone bathtubs. While the lobby carpeting is nearly ready for a refit, there's not much else that should be changed... More

It was a grand hotel, Beautiful building. The location is excellent, just next to the buddha tooth temple and kandy lake is in front of you. Hotel facilities are old, and shower takes long time to get hot water. Furniture is old colony style, but bed is not comfortable.

It was our first time to Kandy. the Queens Hotel is directly opposite Tooth Relic temple and in front of Kandy lake. The staff were friendly and the hotel brings back flashbacks of colonial life. We only ate breakfast in the hotel and the buffet/ set menu was limited and ordinary. If a large hotel chain like Accor got hold... More

I stayed here recently with my family. On the positive side the hotel has a brilliant location on the lake and immediately opposite the Temple of the Tooth. The building itself is very grand but has very much faded from (I assume) former glories. The rooms are very dated, but clean - probably not an unexpected standard for the price.... More

Stayed with family. good value for money, good location, close to main shopping mall and the temple with a view of the lake from the room. The staff were also friendly too. Has a very nice historical, colonial feel.

We chose this hotel because of its position and it is indeed excellent, being right in the middle of Kandy right beside the lake. We also thought its heritage aspect would be appealing but this proved to be a mixed blessing as my wife thought it amounted to simply being 'down at heel'. The room decor was from another century...
