For those who are unable to walk there is a free tuk tuk service provided by the hotel. Wifi is available at the lobby and... More

We stayed here with our family. This is a decent hotel for a short stay. The rooms are good and clean. The beds were average. The restaurant has a decent buffet. Have some entertainment like pool table etc, but need to pay extra for it. Over all a Decent stay.

I liked the hotel due to old world charm. It is set in early 20th century . from reception to rooms etc. Can do with refurbishment of rooms to meet 21st century standards on comfort while retaining the old world look. ACs can be better..beds surely need upgrade..and so do bathrooms...there can be more light in the room.. food was... More

I stayed in this hotel in last week of December. Hotel is not worth money spent to stay there. We booked for two nights when we checked in, later on we were told that you can stay for more than one night as we were pre booked and were not aware of that. Such unprofessional attitude. In breakfast there are... More

Nice hotel near Kandy city center. Very friendly and helpful staffs. The buffet dinner was simple with many varieties. Room is a bit old but comfortable bed - need renovation. The view is beautiful and the swimming pool is clean. Overall, had a good stay.
