As the title says, the Casamara is ideally located for the must see sights of Kandy - the Temple of the Tooth and Central Lake (take a boat ride on this) are within five minutes walk - and you can get a tuctuc to the Botanical Gardens (these are also wonderful).
The Hotel is ideal as a stopover hotel only for its location - very friendly staff but very average rooms (although these are perfectly adequate for one or two nights). There is a nice bar on top of the hotel - however we were there on a Poya Day (full moon celebration) - be warned (and prepared) that on these days virtually no alcohol is served anywhere in Sri Lanka - so sadly on this occasion we were not able to enjoy the bar.
As we were in a rush to get the wonderful tea train to Nuwara Eliya (this is a must and takes four hours) we cannot comment on breakfast - it did look good though.
To re-iterate, we would recommend staying here on route for one or two nights only as rooms are just OK.
