We stayed for two nights at Kandy View hotel and loved it. Initially we were put in a standard room (we had booked a deluxe room) but after clarifying the mix up, we were upgraded to a 'superior deluxe' which had a magnificent view. The staff all went above and beyond in terms of customer service. Lovely buffet breakfast (Sri... More

This hotel was cheap & quiet. Very simple & the bathrooms were not a hit but for under €30 per double room per night including breakfast it was very good value for money. It is located up a hill & a few streets away from the main street around the lake in the centre of town. The hotel is surrounded... More

Chose this hotel because of the view from the top rooms - spectacular over the rain forest and the town. The restaurant is really good and every meal we had was great. Staff are very friendly and helpful. The tuk tuk driver they organised for us was very good and did exactly as we asked. We left our main bags... More

Hotel in kandy. About 10 min walk from lake and city. Nice walk in day time but need torch for night time. Had deluxe room but didn't see much difference from the standard except the great view. Which there's no denying was great. Staff were helpful and organised a trusted tuk tuk driver to take us around for the day... More

We visited here for 3 nights in October, at first we were a bit put off as our room wasn't amazing and a bit old but we settled in and the staff were lovely. Enjoyed the open restaurant area, all the food we tried was good and the chef cooks in front of you, explaining the process. Location is walkable... More

The owner and the staff were very nice and even the view from their rooftop restaurant ist not to bad. But unfortunately the rooms smelled and looked wet. The flush in the bathroom could not stop running during the night and every door was not even so we could just hardly open and close them. The hotel is located just... More

The locals that run this place are great the looked after us and a child. We walked everyday into town and caught a Tok Tok home. Food is good, breakfast is toast and jam and local breakfast as well. Bed comfy and towels soft, what more do you want.

The hotel is easily loacted. Near the market. Wonderful view of Kandy town from the hotel. Very cosy and clean. Staff are very welcoming and friendly. Always a smiling face. Manager is a true gem of a person. Intended to stay only a day...but ended up staying 3days. Thumbs up to Kandy View. 10/10

I have been volunteering in Sri Lanka for over a month and had a week to travel alone before returning home. When looking for a room on a right budget the kind hotel owner compromised on a very good price with me. During the evening he invited me to watch him cook typical Sri Lankan meals an invited me for... More
