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. The restaurant manager had a stiff upper lip and acted as if he had never heard the word 'Vegetarian' in his life... More

We spent two nights at hotel with room overlooking pool which was ok size wise, clean and with basic facilities. Went looking for a restaurant but road not lit at all and quite busy so walked back to hotel and ate in restaurant. Buffet dinner acceptable but not as good as other buffets in similar standard hotels. Staff very pleasant... More

Stayed two nights, enjoyed Kandy especially Botanical Gardens and walking around city. Hotel facilities represent fair value for money consistent with our experiences elsewhere in Sri Lanka. Really appreciated all staff particularly the dining room manager who went out of his way to assist me with gluten free dining.

Our driver had booked accommodation here for us – a party of four. On arrival, it presented us with a pleasant entrance with a swimming pool near the front entry. However, it was soon brought to our attention that our rooms had been paid for by the car company at a rate of $140 USD rather than the $90 USD... More

We stayed 3 nights at this hotel. It wasn't our first choice, but we travelled during Chinese New Year so hotels were very busy in Kandy. We had two rooms as there were 5 of us (2 adults, 3 kids). The hotel was fine on the whole. There was building work going on, which was rather noisy at times but... More

Upon arrival in Kandy our driver took us to the Senani Hotel which was recommended by his boss. We had not researched the hotel and was not sure of the rates. The hotel looked old and tired. The room we were given was too small for 2 adults & 2 children. When the room fan was turned on it made... More

This hotel is a little way out of town, which is a good thing. Down town Kandy gets quite noisy and crowded and this place is just a few minutes by Tuk Tuk. The views from many rooms and the restaurant are lovely. The hotel is built down the mountainside, so some rooms are a LONG way down - many... More

We spent one night in the Senani during our tour of Sri Lanka. We were given a nice room on the top floor overlooking the hills of Kandy, probably on of the nicest rooms. The room was big enough with a balcony. The bathroom was OK, nothing to complain but could have been kept in slightly better conditions. The bathroom... More

We checked in after a long winding drive uphill and were quite amused when we drove up to this little chalet kind of structure nestled in a sharp turn. But, this was one of our best stays in SL trip. The rooms are cozy, well provided, clean and provide a wonderful view of Kandy. The food was amazing with sufficient... More
