I was traveling with wife and two grown up kids. Stayed in two double rooms on 6 - 9 June 2015. Staff was helpful and friendly. Located at altitude and away from city center, walking uphill is quite difficult. However it was not a problem for us as a coaster with driver (Mr. Neil from Blue Travel - a nice... More

We spent one night at the Senani Hotel. It was June, so area was out of season, and there weren't a whole lot of people staying there. The service was great and staff was helpful. A 3 course dinner and breakfast were included with the room which was a delight. However, the dinner was average at best. Breakfast was better... More

Senani hotel is situated in the reach part of Kandy, uphill. That means quite far away from Kandy places of interest, by no means a walking distance, although,it's very close to Arthur's Seat viewpoint. The room was good, clean and quite spacious. A big balcony with a pool and forest view was also nice. The views from the dining hall... More

This hotel was very good. Located up on the hill which gave you some great views. Not of Kandy itself but great views anyway. The restaurant had awesome balcony views where you could enjoy your breakfast or dinner. Rooms were clean and tidy with everything required for the basic traveller. Breakfast had a good combination of local and western foods.... More

Stayed here as a part of our Sri Lanka tour and this was easily the worst choice of all hotels that we stayed in. The location was on top of a hill with views of the Kandy lake.
