My girlfriend and I stayed at Kandy View for 3 nights in the middle of August this year. 'K' the manager was incredible, very helpful in sorting out Tuk-Tuk/Taxi drivers for short trips or the whole day. He found the right balance of not being too pushy in selling day-trips and guided tours, a trait not shared by many hoteliers... More

Kandy View is a perfect hotel. The view is really nice, especially from the rooms on the top floor. The rooms are simple, but comfortable and clean. Diner and breakfast are super! Staff and owner are really nice and super helpfull when you want to plan trips, book tickets, plan journeys etc. Wouldn't hesitate to stay there again!

This hotel has an enviable location and you get good views from almost any window in the place. The best though is from their rooftop restaurant although the food is quite expensive for what it is. If you have any meal there though, the breakfast is certainly worth trying. Lots of choice and v substantial - one of the best... More

This hotel boasts a stunning view and it's true, it's absolutely gorgeous. The staff is professional, very nice, and accomodating, and the food is excellent (though pricey). The location is not great, as it's a dark walk up a steep hill, and about 30 minutes to downtown Kandy. However, there are tuk-tuks available 24/7 to take you anywhere you want... More

This hotel was booked through our tour company, and we had read good reviews about the place and their rooms. Unfortunately we were given the worst room... The room on the ground floor. It is true, you can hear everything above and the room itself isn't great (compared to the others) the shower was shabby and cold, with a open... More

When we arrived at the hotel the owner convinced us to take the Deluxe room and said that we would see the difference with other rooms. The Deluxe room had a beautiful view indeed while the other rooms we got to see were facing a wall, this convinced us quickly. However, there was nothing 'Deluxe' in this room except the... More

This hotel was fabulous for the price. It is at the end of a bit of a bumpy road, however a tuk tuk gets up it fine. The rooms are spacious and comfortable and the hotel is kept very clean. The major selling point to this hotel is the view from the top in the restaurant, its amazing. The restaurant... More

We stayed in Kandy only one night during our Sri Lanka holiday. Kandyan View Rest was great choice. We had comfortable room with big bed. Cleanliness of room was on very high grade in regards price level of hotel. Wonderful view from bedroom. Breakfast in time what we needed.
