I stayed at the Citadel with my wife for 4 nights and we didn't really have any preconceptions before going but instantly warmed to the place upon arrival. We were greeted with cold towels and refreshing drink and then shown to our room. This was incredibly spacious and had a beautiful bathroom and huge bed. Although we asked for a double it did end up being 2 twins together which was a bit annoying at times.
The view of the river was nice albeit slightly obscured by the numerous trees (Kandy is incrdibly green). There was a night when it seemd there was a party going on somewhere and this did go on till the early hourse but this seemed more of a one-off than the norm.
Staff were friendly and the room service was delicious (can recommend the burger). The buffet breakfast was plentiful with lots of fresh fruit and also lots of sri lankan breakfast dishes (fish curry, chicken curry, beef curry etc). We didn't try the spa as didn't have time but all in all had a very pleasant stay here. The DVD library was fair and helped pass the evenings. I can highly recommend this place, it is a solid 4 star hotel.
