There can be a confusion of two places when they exist in the same premises as with hotel Castelo and Shangri la guest house in Kandy. These are like two adjoining houses where they have the same main entrance and the same path way leading to both houses.The sign boards of
both places are not indicating the directions clear enough.
During our stay in Shangri la some tourists came to Shangri la during the breakfast time complaining to the owners about this confusing situation.They had stayed In Castelo the previous night thinking it was Castelo.We patronized the restaurent of Castelo several times since it was just next door.Both places are good but completely two different concepts trying to cater to a different clientele.
When I was going through certain reviews I had the impression the same confusions happens again and again. For example Shangri la does n t have receptionists and they never have any personnel trying to sell anything to guests. We always appreciated there attentive but discrete service and attitude.They are not imposing or insisting in any way.
This year the Kandy Perehera will take place from 1 st to 10 th August. Every year there is this confusion of dates about Perehera too. Our friends had found this information during room reservations.. .
