Great rooms, and the hotel provides a very good buffet breakfast. I didn't try other meals. Nice seating area, but the drinks are a bit expensive. The pool area is nice and clean and all the staff are helpful. A nice quiet place just out of the noise and dust of Kandy. A short tuk tuk ride away.

I read about this hotel on trip advisor and hoped that people were just being a bit picky. Unfortunately they were right on the money. We got the worst room in the hotel - room 203 directly below the restaurant buffet. You get to hear the restaurant until close and then at 6:15am it all starts again to set up... More

A great hotel with clean bedrooms, a great view from the terrace, monkeys to watch and a lovely pool. the breakfast buffet was tasty and varied and it's just a short tuk tuk ride to the centre of Kandy. the only downside was the cost of laundry.

Stayed here for 1 night with my husband as part of a birdwatching tour. Being at the top of a hill there were wonderful views over Kandy. All staff were very helpful and service was good. There was a large selection of foods on the buffet menu. A lovely stay.

Great Hotel. Lovely Hotel and resturant with lovely breakfast and snack menu. The pool area although very nice. Resturant overlooking the valley with outdoor seating and balconies. Rooms very clean....some with small balconies - wifi only in lobby area. Staff very helpful.... Lots of monkeys in the area so take care with leaving belongings on balconies and leaving doors open...

2nd hotel on tour, stayed for 2 nights, food, staff, and location all very good, only drawbacks could not open windows due to possible raids by the local monkeys, and the hotel is on top of a gert big hill, but the views are great.
