But rooms destroy this all. We lived on the highest floor and had room number 106. The room smelt of drains and was very... More

Having stayed at the Kandy View Hotel almost two years ago and found it a pleasant stay, we decided to re-book. However this was not a good idea! We did not exactly receive a warm welcome as the owner chatted on his mobile and left us waiting at his desk. We found his attitude quite rude. The luxury room whilst... More

I took a risk and booked the cheaper room, and at 15$ we were not disappointed at all. The room is not in the main hotel, but in a separate building 100 meters away, and part of a large apartment. We had our room with balcony and bathroom, and a view on the hills around Kandy but no WiFi. The... More

Stayed here as part of a trip using public transport around the south of Sri Lanka we were greeted by the most welcoming friendly staff I have ever experienced in this price range. We were shown to our premium/affordable room with the most spectacular views out of a large window overlooking Kandy. Being our 2nd stop after Colombo, we opted... More
