This small hotel is cosy and comfortable. It's situated part way up one of the hills from the town centre. The staff are very nice and friendly, the beds ok and the food good. We stayed three nights and would stay there again. A good base from which to visit Hortons Plains National Park and Adams Peak.

The furniture was supposed to be in a British style but just felt dated. Breakfast was ok. The usual eggs and omelette. Dinner wasn't great either. The waiter at... More

We stayed one night as part of a tour. This place was better than it looked on first sight! The surroundings need tidying up and a lick of paint. Hotel style reception and generally very good service. Spacious room. A proper bar with more than just Lion beer. Breakfast was good: the food at dinner was acceptable, but ordinary. Nice... More

A short while later we rang down to reception and asked if we could change our order and have a local vegetable curry. The staff were happy to change our order... More

The rooms were cosy and big enough for the 2 days we spent at the Rock. The reception staff, particularly Graham, were excellent and friendly, we were made to feel that they would do anything for us to enjoy our stay. However, when we spent the evening in the hotel. We were seated, but we felt that it was all... More

Very nice place to stay and a very homely atmosphere. Rooms / toilets.....very clean. Went with 27 people booking 7 rooms. The staff were very friendly and accommodating at all times. Quality of food needs a bit of improvement and staff need a bit of training on handling big crowds at a given point. But overall, a very nice place... More

A very nice place with fireplaces in the rooms, ancient furniture and polite staff. The chief has kindly agreed to cook the fish which we brought from the market. It was a pleasure being in this hotel and we were rather upset that we've left it next day.

The hotel is located up in the hills, about 10 minutes car ride from Kandy centre, in the middle of other small hotels and local houses. The room fitted our family, but with all the luggage it got a little crowded. The bathroom was very small and the shower basic. Bed were ok. The food was ok, local curries and... More
