An over all impression of this hotel was average. but once you enter the room specially the Gallery the view is mesmerizing. You can view srilanka's Highest peak. A lush green mountain range and overall look of the surroundings. Bad thing is they do not offer Tea pot with room booking. And buying one cup of tea costs you Rs.... More

This place is quiet far away from the actual Kandy . Reaching here could be a nightmare if you do not have the address or landmarks . The rooms are traditional and the the swimming pool was great . Average food and the staff are extremely pleasant. Go for it without a second thought

We started our trip in Kandy. The hotel is very nice, because it is located in the hills of Kandy and therefore offers good views. Rooms are furnished very basic, but for a short stay its totally ok. In the evening they offer very delicious food. You can choose between meat and a vegetarian option. Staff is also very nice... More

We thought our driver was going to give up - this place is hard to find - but it was well worth the work. Very quaint hillside location overlooking the valley and picturesque hills.

The place is very nice and has a nice view. It is a bit hard to reach with a narrow uphill road. Rooms are clean and designed with good taste. We were served a simple dinner (small rice and curry) which was definitely overpriced (800rp), but being off season the place was empty. Good if you want to stay out... More
