Factor a half hour drive to get into Kandy if you are going but don't let that deter you from staying in this little oasis away from the noise and bustle of the city. The hotel decor is tasteful, the staff very friendly and helpful, outside verandah areas are available either side to sit and take in the views of... More

Kandy is a very nice city but like all cities full of traffic. After you spend your day visiting it, Elegant Hotel is a very relaxing place in the hills with a stunning view over the "Buddha Mountain". Enjoy the pool and relax. Nice comfortable rooms and friendly staff.

Very charming place, surrounded by nature, trees and flowers, very lovely! Located in the hills of Kandy, the view is amazing. The swimming pool is an advantage as well ! Good service, and clean but standard room, small bathroom.

I came here with my family on holiday to India and Sri Lanka, and this place was our favorite anywhere. It is set on a hillside with picturesque views, and the flora on the property is stunning.

This is a gorgeous little hotel about 20 minutes drive from the town of Kandy, so you won't be in the thick of it here but this is a perfect spot if you want to be away from the bustle of town and have some peace and quiet to recharge from busy sightseeing. The swimming pool is clean and has... More

This is a lovely guesthouse just outside Kandy. The staff were very helpful and the decor of the hotel was just right. We had Sri Lankan food the two nights we were there and just loved it.

Never expected such a grand 5-star welcome by hotel staff. From the time we booked in until we checked out, we had an awesome experience with the rooms, surrounding mountain view, the pool and most importantly the service. The quality of food (taste, cleanliness and presentation) was not second to any 5-star hotel. The owner is very kind and professional,... More

A hotel can be rated on a few criteria : Nice location, comfortable rooms, good service, tasty food and good guidance for your stay.
