Gorgeous hotel. The staff were lovely, the food delicious and the views fabulous. The room and bathroom was perfect. A truly wonderful little haven away from the bustling streets and not too far from Kandy.

Everything about this lovely hotel is fabulous - the setting, the facilities, the views, the food. Best of all the staff are so welcoming and friendly. They even did me a surprise birthday cake which was so nice and they had also decorated the table with fresh flowers and party hats. The gardens are beautiful with great bird life and...

We stayed at the Elegant hotel for 3 nights from 16 April. The staff were amazing. Attention to detail superb. It is a true haven from the hustle and bustle of Kandy. We had breakfast and dinner there every day and each meal was amazing. A huge thanks to all the staff for their extraordinary kindness and hospitality.

Arriving to Elegant Hotel was like entering a guarded little oasis in the middle of a busy and noicy area. Here, a short drive from Kandy, you will find a charming hotel w only 5 nice and well equipped rooms. A nice swimming pool with a spectacular view of the mountains. The most kind and service minded personnel. My highest...

Of all the places we stayed in SriLanka the Elegant had the most attention to detail. It's a way out of Kandy so get directions first, but well worth the journey. High up with great views and a terrace to oversee them whilst watching the sun go down. Well worth eating here, we had arranged to go out for one...

This hotel is a little difficult to review as when we visited (early March) the weather was poor with heavy rain and low visibility. The main selling point of the Elegant Hotel is its stunning location in the hills above Kandy which we were unable to enjoy. The hotel is very small with only about six rooms. It has a...
