It was wonderful to be able to return to The Kandy House while visiting Kandy. The location, ambiance, food and excellent service as well as the lovely pool were all very much appreciated. In fact, we skipped some of our planned sightseeing to spend more time just hanging out at the hotel.

Staying at the Kandy House is like stepping back in time. The setting is beautiful. The service was excellent - personalised and adaptable. Also had a really different but great massage. Highly recommend.

Review collected in partnership with this hotel
We stayed two nights here. The building is a lovely example of an old mansion house. The bedroom was large, airy and spotless. There is a large pool to swim in which is wonderful after a busy day sightseeing . The gardens are peaceful and tranquil. It was a good 40 mins drive in the madness that is traffic in Kandy. An early breakfast at 6.30 am was no problem for them, so obliging. The dinners were delicious with a choice of 3 starters, mains and dessert. Gluten free was not a problem. The staff are delightful

positive: special place, a house with history, good ambiance, nice staf. negative: the swimmimgpool was dirty, the floor and the water; dinner was only possible as a menu of 3 courses, al la carte not possible, and was relatively expensive: 6.000 roepies was almost double price that we paired in at least comparable hotels were we could dinner even a la carte for 3.000- 4.000 for 3 courses. ( and there we had the choice for 1 or 2 courses if we wanted trhat). we had once the towels not changed: removed but not replaced.
