We had a room high in the hotel, the higher is better because of the view. The room are large and bathroom is good. The rooms in the new area are the best. The buffet is ok! Good options and some live-cooking. However it is a big hotel with alot of groups that make some noise.

I stayed here for one night in July 2014. This hotel is in a good location near the centre of Kandy. It sit on a hill, and the room I had looked over Kandy. It is a very simple hotel. The rooms are large, but feel very dated. My room, supposedly a double, had two single beds pushed together, single... More

We were staying for a one night in the hotel, the rooms were clean and spacious. Had issues with parking spots, since they don't have adequate parking space for their visiors. Also the hotel requested us to move to another room in the morning since they have been overbooked. So not quite pleased with the service offered. Other than that... More

The welcome from the staff was very nice but aside from that everything else was horrible. From the time we opened the car door at the entrance ;there was a very strong smell of cooking, lobby very dated, the walk to the room was through a very old, dirty and grim hallway. The room had a double bed with two... More

We stayed here for 1 night recently. The hotel had been arranged by our tour guide so unusually I was not up to speed re reviews etc. A lovely blend of old and new, a little bit confusing initially re levels and floors but the standard of our room was excellent. Spotlessly clean, large with all the usual amenities, air... More

Service is a bit laid back, but the property is beautiful and done up very well. The food is good as well. The shower in our room didn't have a shower head so the water just poured down in different directions. Wifi isn't available in the rooms, and even at assigned places, it is iffy. Apart from small problems, we... More

We spent two nights here during our two week visit to Sri Lanka. The location of the hotel is perfect to explore Kandy. The staff are friendly and the room was comfortable. We are a family of four and shared a suite where they put in an extra bed into a triple. We had been staying in two separate rooms... More
