The hall is quite modern but the welcome drink is an industrial fruit juice of a very low quality and this is not a good presentation in a tropical country like Sri Lanka where you can find nice fruits!! Our standard room number was 101 and there were a mold smell because the room was on the old part of... More

we arrived here on busiest weekend of the year (Perahera Festival) Enter town booked out, not our first choice. Asked to be moved away from road noise, and was moved to top floor at back with view over Kandy, ok for one night only.

This hotel is out of the main city area of Kandy, but many of the hotels are located in this hillside location. It has views over the mountains and Kandy and is very pretty. Room was fine and the pool was good. Very nice to have a glass of wine on the balcony overlooking the beauty of the Kandy area.... More

The Senani is about 2km from the centre of Kandy, but is situated high above the city. You will need to use a tuktuk (about 300 rupees) to get to the city centre. The rooms, including bathrooms, were decent, although I had no view - the window opened to a internal walkway and then to a wall of another property.... More

This is a lovely hotel set in the hills above Kandy. Superb views from many of the rooms, the restaurant and bar too. Furnished to a high standard and with free wifi and excellent pool. Breakfast was delicious. A short tuk tuk ride from the city centre, a quiet leafy area, would definitely recommend

Modern, clean hotel perched on a hillside high above Kandy. Not really walkable to town so wheels are pretty much required. (Although I did not see if there was any guest parking nearby.) We relied on tuktuk transportation at about 200 or 300 rupees to/from town depending on time of day. Room was clean and average size. Breakfasts had a... More
