Room was incredible value at £77 for a triple (plus tax etc). Bit of street noise but tolerable. Bathroom was very period (but lacked hot water and a decent shower). The room itself was incredibly spacious and looked fantastic. Breakfast was excellent and the staff were very helpful and polite. I'd definitely recommend this hotel if you're staying in Kandy...

We used Royce Tours from the travel desk at the Queens Hotel in Kandy for organising a car and driver for our 12 day trip. The car and driver were faultless but Royce himself was a greedy slippery eel and wanted to add many extras onto the all-inclusive quote at the end. He insisted on getting us better prices on...

The Queens is known by everyone, going to Kandy and is almost as much a landmark as the lake and temples. Its location is superb, with the Temple of the Tooth just minutes away and the lake across the road also. If you want shops they also are very close and if you get lost everyone knows the Queens Hotel.... More

I traveled Solo to see the Perahera. The staff at the hotel took particular care to make sure I was well looked after. The room was quaint and very clean. The shower worked perfectly for me every day at all times-I stayed for 5 nights. The pool area was well kept and clean. Queens Hotel is a slice of history... More

Excellent! Cozy room, high ceilings, massive doors, good sound insulation, delightful retro elevator... I felt presence of Elizabeth II... and despite fatigue (5 hours of a way to Kandy) there were amazing dreams!

Stayed here for three nights. Loved the colonial style. We had to change our room twice - 1st - already occupied. 2nd - window opened a few inches to overlook a brick wall (not good for claustrophobia). Our friends had to change their room also as the bed was a three quarter size and had no legs ( basically, a... More

We stayed here for 3 nights and enjoyed very much. Its city-centre location brings great convenience. Walk to the Food City--the supermarket, walk to most of the restaurants, walk to the bus station, walk by the Kandy Lake, 100m to the Scared Tooth Temple... and there is anther great convenience--everyone knows here! The colonial style itself is great. The room... More

This has been a very nice property, the rooms are still ok, but generally the hotel has seen better days. The hotel is in the middle of Kandy, close to the lake. Fast check-inn, and nice to have a pool area after a day sightseeing.
