“Don't eat there”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2012

Rooms are nice, the view is awesome, everything was very nice until we tried the food. It looks and tastes bad, both on dinner and breakfast. After leaving this place I had diarrhea for 2 days, which is really upsetting during you vacation.
Nice place if you don't eat there.

We spent one night at the Peak residence. Staff were friendly and the views over Kandy were beautiful but the rooms were tired and dirty. Lots of giant cockroaches and the bathroom had an overwhelming smell of damp. The hotel is a short tuk tuk ride away from the lake.

We recently spent 3 nights at this hotel with our 2 children. After initially being offered 2 small rooms our driver insisted that we be given the suite. The room offered lots of space for a family of 4 , a strong mothball smell, a leaky, dank bathroom and the best view of Kandy you can get. So a mixed bag but the staff are very friendly, breakfast is pretty good and we had an amazing evening watching the sunset with a couple of cold Lion lagers.

We stayed int his hotel for one night , it was amazing. We were delighted with thier service. Staff was very freindly and well attentive. Romms are clean , nice and tidy. Food was realy good. This is more than a residence and it is like a three star hotel. Amaizing view , we loved it. You can see whole city from the room balcony. Great experince , worth for money

3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2012

Booked this from the UK. Arrived and were given a fairly small dingy room near reception. Next day we were moved downstairs to a room twice the size with a balcony. A fair way from town up the hill but tuktuks easy to find. Adequate breakfast and dinner was ok the one night we ate there. Staff were friendly and the view is fabulous. When we came to pay they tried to charge us the same rate for the dingy room as for the nice room. Not impressed and got a slight discount. Based on other places we stayed of similar quality this seems overpriced for what you get.

Room Tip: avoid rooms on the same floor as reception

We arrived at the hotel after a long journey to find that the room I had already paid for was not available. The hotel was full. After some rearranging, they moved someone out and cleaned the room for us. The owner came and was very apologetic. They gave us a free meal for our inconvenience and overall, the staff is very friendly and helpful. This hotel is way above the valley and has a great view. However, if you like the hustle and bustle and noise of the city, stay somewhere else. It is vey quiet here and you have to take a taxi each time you want to go to the city and back. I would recommend it. It is clean, orderly, the food is good and the staff is friendly. I got the delux room with airconditiong and a view.
