The hotel is situated in a quiet district 10 mins form the centre of Kandy with wonderful views and for us there it stopped . With the exception of a wonderful cook the rest of our stay was ruined by a greedy and overbearing owner who not only talked us into the most expensive meal we had in Sri Lanka... More

Having agreed not to stay in the centre of Kandy itself, we couldn't have made a better choice. From the moment we arrived Dudley made sure we felt at home and with the help of his amazing staff catered for my Celiac Disease brilliantly. The food was fabulous, he must have the best cook in Sri Lanka! He also helped... More

Regent Lodge is a bright and airy property, which has been beautifully and tastefully designed. It is approx. 10 mins out of the busy centre of Kandy in a quiet neighbourhood....and has magnificent views of the hills. We did not find the location a problem, and used tuk tuks whenever we wanted to get around. We kept the number of... More

This was my third trip to Sri Lanka and I have stayed at numerous hotels and guest houses all around the island. Regent Lodge with its incredibly friendly owners was without a doubt the best of them all. Being greeted with a cup of tea and ginger biscuits upon arrival and having a friendly welcome chat was the perfect start... More

We agreed that this place were beautiful! We were also very pleased with our room. We were very happy with the level of service provided. Everyone was very friendly and accomodating. We did have to wait 10 minutes for our room to be ready upon check-in. However, our request for late check-out was granted with no problems.

We stayed ata number of guesthouses in Kandy during our vacation and this was the last stay and can happily say we kept the best until last. It is a little out of the way up Riverdale Road but most Tuc Tuc drivers knew the directions and the view and accommodation are worth it. The owner Dudley was there to... More

Really loved staying here, Dudley, the owner is a distinguished gentleman and he and his wife cook up some really delicious gourmet Sri Lankan food if you like as well! While breakfast is included (a breakfast fit for royalty) dinner is not, so just keep in mind that that will run you about $16 US if I remember correctly. But... More

Planned on staying only 2 nights, but after feeling right at home and enjoying the wonderful food, we decided to stay a third night. Amazing hospitality and we couldn't have asked for a more welcoming home to spend our first time in Kandy at. Can not wait to return.

We visited the hotel in November 2012. Its situated on a hill and about 10 minutes drive from city center. The location is superb. Hotels is well maintained and has a unique architecture which makes for a very pleasant stay. Even if the weather is hot, once you enter the rooms its really cool without air-conditioning.

We visited regent lodge for a short period but wish we could have spent longer with them! Dudley and his wife were so friendly and nothing was too much hard work for them. You really felt as though you were part of the family! The hotel itself is bright and airy, very peaceful and quiet and a delicious breakfast. We... More
