We stayed 2 nights at this hotel as part of our Sri Lanka tour.
We had hoped that the hotel would be close enough to walk into Kandy but that was certainly not the case. The hotel is a few miles off the main road into Kandy but in a wonderful setting perched on the side of a valley overlooking a river. The hotel would make a wonderful setting for a honeymoon.
The service provided by all the staff was superb and the buffet food was excellent. We stayed on a half board basis and like most of the visitors were just passing through on our tours. The hotel lounges are open to the outside amd at night bites can be a problem but the pool and views were worth it.
The room we had was very comfortable with a spacious double bed. The only thing that put us off was on the second night when we decided to have a nightcap on the balcony only to find there was a mobile phone transmitter attached to our balcony. This did put me off and if I had seen it earlier would have asked to change rooms. It did not however detract from the splendour of the hotel.
