We visited this hotel after arriving in Columbo from Dubai. It was a busy journey and as soon as we arrived it felt like we were finally on holiday! We asked a local tuk tuk driver who for a negotiable fare drives you up a steep hill, and wow the climb is worth it! A view of rolling hills, Buddah on a hill in the distance, and everywhere so often a monkey! The hotel itself had a beautiful calm atmosphere and was met immediately by an employee who guided us to a room which was set up ready for our arrival.
The room itself was perfect for myself and my fiancé, and everything worked perfectly. The hotel itself is charming, and I enjoyed browsing through books left by other travellers, and the different pictures of Sri Lanka itself on the walls. We decided that we would like some water and rang the bell, to which a knock on the door sounded less than 30 seconds later- incredible service! There is also a rooftop area which we did not realise until the morning after which was a great place to relax for a bit and dry our clothes from the elephant orphanage the day before!
The next morning (and unknowingly to me the morning myself and my fiancé got engaged) we decided to order breakfast at the last minute, and the staff were very accommodating. We were provided with a lovely breakfast, with juice, toast and preserves, an omelette, local fruit and extra coffee with the view of monkeys climbing telephone wires nearby!
It was at this point that we met Anura and enjoyed talking to him for a while. He is very knowledgeable about the area and was able to help our (unusual) query about donating goods to a local children's home, which to our good luck he happens to be on the board of! He took us there himself and showed us around the home, and we enjoyed finding out all about his life, the life of the community and it's heritage.
Kandy is a beautfiul place and Days Inn was definitely the best hotel we stayed in. Their priority is customer service, and they work hard in delivering this well. We are definitely staying again in the summer, and very much look forward to seeing Anura and the team again.
Thank you for making our trip, and the day we got engaged beautiful!
(I have ticked the couples box, but would equally go with family, friends and by myself!)
