Found this hotel to be extremely good value and friendly staff especially the manager who went out of his way to help. I stayed in the rooms above the main hotel which was a bit of a walk but I was shown short cut and didn't have big bags. The views made up for it each morning. Meals were good... More

The best thing in this hotel is the view. It is situated on the side of a hill thus if you get the room on the top floor the view is nice. But let's face it, this is not the only one hotel in Kandy with a nice view. Second good thing is that the price reflects the quality, that... More

Great views from this hotel which is at the far end of the lake up a hill. We enjoy walking so no big deal for us. Had a wonderful massage from a guy who turned out to be the chef! The food at dinner was fabulous and breakfast was really good too. Bonus on seeing loads of monkeys in the... More

OK, let me start with the negative. There we no plug in the wash basin, I should have asked but for one night didn't. The positives. Really friendly,helpful staff. We arrived early from Colombo, room wasn't ready, so had a cup of tea, by which time it was. Terrific view from our room over to the forest, waking up to... More

The mistake we made was not asking if the annex part of the hotel was reached by : Balancing on a dodge concrete unlit walkway leading to a pot holled unlit road with a gradient more suitable for mountain goats. After much complaining the manager offered us a room with the door opening on to the side of the reception... More

The hotel does a bit of a “bait and switch” which you should be aware of. They pull you in with a cheap room rate, but when you get there, they point to the building far up the hill, and say, “That’s the room you booked.” The room in the main building we “upgraded” to was twice as expensive as...

We have just finished a two night stay and everything has been perfect. The views from our bedroom are incredible looking over Kandy. There are also monkeys living nearby whichwe saw on a daily basis. The restaurant serves great curries and alternatives the staff are friendly and even give free lessons whilst cooking your food! Clean and tidy rooms maybe... More

We stayed in the top floor rooms, air conditioned with amazing views, trees full of monkeys in the morning. A little out of town but a short tuk tuk ride away. The restaurant is great as it's up on the roof with great views, stick to breakfast or drinks there though, as you'll find much better dinner elsewhere. Just a... More

I originally booked the budget accommodation but when I looked up and saw it further up a steep road and that further steps then led up to the rooms I realised I would struggle and so I paid the small extra and stayed in the main hotel. No regrets - it was still excellent value. The room was basic but... More

Friendly staff, spacious room (deluxe room) and top views from the restaurant/ breakfast area. Beware of the monkey who is a regular guest around breakfast time. He will jump from the trees and steal a pancake which is offered by the owner.. Food is cooked in front of your eyes and tasteful. Restaurant area is nice.
