I stayed in room number 202. The breakfast is sumptuous but the rooms are in a state of decay. You can look closely and see the plaster coming off at certain places, the bed is not the best and the room service is not conversant with english. It could be wonderful if they took a bit more care of the... More

I have stayed at the Kandyan Reach Hotel 8 times since 2008, and every time I've felt very comfortable. The staff are always very welcoming and friendly, the restaurant serves a decent meal, and the rooms are clean and functional. The swimming pool is very good. (My wife says we are being spoiled by the staff). This is a nicce... More

THERE WERE ANTS IN MY BED. A convincing illusion can be had at The 'Kandyan Reach'. I was the only Tourist here; and I became totally invisible (that's no illusion). One would assume that a high 'staff to guest ratio', would guarantee a personalised stay. Get real... now please go to your room. Personally, I felt as though I had... More

Stayed overnight. Staff very helpful. The bed is comfortable. The room generally clean. AC is working. There is hot water though you have to wait for a long time. Kurunegala being a rural town, the hotel and the facilities are quite acceptable.

It looks good from the outside and from the reception and pool area but the rooms are at maximum 2 star quality. The bathroom was smelly. Our room window & balcony faced towards the courtyard where people were walking by. So, we kept the curtains closed which created a bit of a stuffy feeling. At least they have some nice... More

After 10 min paper work we got our room key and entered to the room.The room (103) was very hot and smelly. 28C' shows on air-condition and out of control.... More

Lobby area was nice and staff were lovely.The rooms however are poor and could do with updating and maintenance. Breakfast was nice. Location was good. Air conditioning did not work and room was out-dated.

rooms are not cleaned and the wash rooms are with old fittings not properly maintained. Desperately need refurbishment . food is good although there is no buffet. staff friendly and nice. Needs to really focus on the quality of the rooms and the washrooms.
