Very odd location and set up for hotel. It is on a steep hill and a bit of a challenge to get to, but the Views are nice and the food was excellent. Rooms were ok, nothing to write home about. Staff was very good. Lots of monkeys around for entertainment.

We booked the "budget room" and the reservation info mentioned that the room was at 100meters from the main hotel buding. The problem is that this 100m is a walking pathin the middle of the woods, no light and impossible to be done with luggage. The alternative way is by car (tuk tuk could not go up the steep hill...

This hotel is up a very steep hill from the town of Kandy. I suppose it is a walkable trip to town, but with the steepness, and , most of all, the crazy traffic in Kandy, I can't recommend the walk. We stayed in one of the more expensive rooms our first trip through Kandy. It was really disappointing. The... More

Having travelled around India before flying over to Sri Lanka my partner & I had been staying in some seriously cheap accommodation! Wanting to stick to a cheap budget we was searching Kandy hotels & wasn't really getting a lot for our money. Anyway, booked for a budget room with no breakfast as the next room up was an extra...

The staff are really what make this place and were the most helpful and kind people I met in Kandy - always willing to help out. The 'deluxe' rooms have a nice view, but are sorely in need of a coat of paint and some repairs as well. The good news is that it is quiet and the food was... More

You get what you pay for.... Decent accomodation in Kady with nice view and very kind and corteous staff. The breakfast and dinner was good, breakfast waitress and chef very polite and helpful. Hotel offers some trips, we took one for 2500 rupees Kandy trip in Tuk-Tuk - nice almost all day trip which I can recommend, our driver (I... More

Booked based on TA reviews but was really disappointed. Bailed after 1 night. Called to book our rooms and clearly agreed we needed 2 rooms for 5 but on arrival there was no record of us. We were given two doubles and when we asked for a mattress in the evening for the floor as there was no third bed,... More

We stayed 1 night in January. Had a delux room. Rooms are very simple as you would expect for the price but the glass wall makes it lovely. We had HB and the breakfast and dinner were delicious. The terrace where meals are served is also a lovely location. And a great thing about the hotel were the staff...so enthusiastic... More

Kandy view hotel was located in the middle of nature - nice views and monkeys were hanging in the trees just next to our balcony. Food was great and cheap, restaurant was also comfy and spacious equipped with sofas. The staff was friendly.

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
