I stayed at the Queens Hotel in the recent T20 World Cup. If you are aware of the type of hotel, you will have a great time. The hotel is an old colonial hotel, going back to Victorian times. It is steeped in history and is brimful of character and times gone by. However, it is obviously not a brand new hotel.
The rooms are somewhat spartan although all your basic needs are there. Note that Wi-fi can only be obtained in the hotel lobby.
Personally, I found that any loss of modern amenity was more than compensated by the character of the hotel. The hotel bar is old and traditional, but seems to attract and eclectic mix of people which meant I’d a couple of excellent nights in here. If you enjoy the creak of the wooden floorboards, inspecting old time photographs and generally embracing the old-world charm, you’ll enjoy here.
I found the breakfast ( included in the rate ) as very good with a wide selection of Western and local dishes. The staff were always friendly and pleasant. For location, next to Kandy Lake, it is hard to surpass.
All in all, I highly recommend this hotel.
