Visited Hotel Casamara in Kandy last January during my short vacation home (Kandy) . Lovely place and friendly service by the hotel team especially General Supervisor Ms.Fareeda Abdeen. 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.

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

We liked the staff, the rooms were ok and the pool was excellent. Food good and advice from the desk accurate and freely given. Wi Fi was a bit weak. Great location around the corner form nearly everything.

I nice looking hotel, slightly old fashioned. Very friendly stuff, they gladly offered a discount for two rooms. They also gave several advises what to see in Kandy. The rooms were large enough, though they could have been cleaner. I found a couple of stains on sheets. WiFi connection was very low, and even when connected I couldn't browse Internet.... More

It seems like an old hotel, the lift is of that old style that has the two grill doors you need to slide. It kind of makes you feel like you're travelling back in time. The rooms are of fair size, clean enough, but again gives you a feeling of being in an old building. The staff are very very... More

It took us 15 minutes or less walk from Kandy Railway Station to this area before seeing a hotel. We chose this because it has an easy to spot signage of their name. The lady staff at the desk were very friendly and proactive including their bellboys. The room we got was neat and clean and comfortable. The room rate... More
