This was the very first hotel we checked in of our srilanka leisure trip. The hotel is good and well maintained. Though rooms were not so big, yet ok for a night stay. The only draw back with the rooms where we stayed was it had non stop noise of people talking & walking outside our room. Looks like there... More

Our "room" was sublime--I would have called it a suite, however, as it had a large sitting room overlooking Kandy Lake, king size bed, and a small "utility" room with a fridge, ironing board, etc. The furnishing were very unique and luxurious with a Sri Lankan flavor. We loved the room so much we ordered room service so we could... More

Being in Kandy the last two days of the great Buddhist celebration, the Esala Perahera, is a one-in-a-lifetime experience -- and so is the cost of eveything in the city. We had reserved months in advance a a double room with a balcony, a flat TV screen and all the amenities that a 150 Euro per night room should have... More

Two night stay during festival on half board. Location is excellent and walking distance to Temple of the Tooth. Service throughout (front desk, restaurant etc) couldn't be better - all staff were efficient and friendly. Buffet was very good quality, well managed, well presented with friendly and efficient staff. We were particularly impressed that when we arrived back at the... More

I stayed at Thilanka for one night in July 2014 as part of a tour package. The check in was excellent with a cold towel and refreshing fruit beverage. I was taken to my room within 10 minutes of arriving. The staff put me in a high floor room with an amazing view. The room was clean and spacious as... More

Staff very friendly and nice welcome on arrival. Great view of Kandy from poolside and room balcony. Food was generally great. Only criticism was the pool being very very cold! Great location; really close to temple of the tooth relic and some nice shops as well.
