Looks like the rooms have been upgraded. The TV channel still lacks many satellite TV channels. There is only 1 movie channel working. The staff are friendly. The restaurant is quite nice and the staff attentive.

Cetrally located in the Kandy city centre, just short walking distance to Kandy lake and tooth relics temple. The staff is great, friendly, helpful and always smile with us. The restaurant is good, lovely swimming pool, just issue about the room condition, it looked old and had smell.

Pros; 1. The view from the balconies was great. 2. The rooms still have the ambiance of the colonial era; I inquired the front desk staff and noted that the hotel is old more than 50 years. 3. The location was ideal to travel around the busy streets of Kandy. Sri Dalada Maligava (The Sacred Temple of the Tooth Relic... More

Located centrally in the bustle of Kandy. I first stayed in Casamara 20 years ago and obviously the time is right to upgrade the facility.I was pleasantly surprised at the standard of the rooms after all these years and especially the service was top notch from the housekeeping and reception team.

We were persuaded to stay in this hotel because of the location, and that is the best thing about the hotel. Our reception was a bad omen as we had to wait for the porter to take our bags from the car and none of the front managers hovering around thought to pitch in. Our room was OK, but....lamps were...

We founded this hotel in a hurry when leaving another accomodation in Kandy because of cockroachs :-( so we were really happy to be somewhere without any insects. But our happiness was short-lived. Receptionist looked very bored and unfriendly and our first discussion after our arrival was about price of the accomodation - they required much more than the price... More

There isn't anything bad to say about this place as such - the location was absolutely perfect, you couldn't ask for a better spot (I didn't even mind the street facing room as this meant I had a very large balcony!!) - the Temple of the tooth was mere 5 min walk away and the beautiful Kandy lake also only...

The roof-top bar was great place and the drinks were served thick and fast by the friendly barman on duty (forgot the name) The Front of house staff were very courteous. All... More

Nice pool, good staff, the room had everything we needed, air con, fridge etc. some net curtains at the windows would have been nice as we felt very overlooked when the curtains were open. The breakfast was good.a buffet with your choice of eggs. A good location in the centre of Kandy.There is a rooftop bar too.

I don't want to put this hotel down as the staff were nice and in fact everything worked , loads of hot water , AC , soap and towels . The rooms and restaurant are a bit depressing and I certainly wouldn't eat dinner there . The breakfast was a buffet , but if you didn't want Sri Lankan breakfast... More
