An old rustic hotel in a quiet neighborhood. Staff is very attentive. Room is pretty big. Food is decent. Wifi is pretty fast by Sri Lanka standard. Check out is abit slow in the morning due to the crowd but no major delay. One major issue I find is the tremendous amount of flies in the dining area. Highly annoying!

A beautiful place to stay with amazing swimming pool and big rooms, nice range of options for vegetarian .although sometimes it looks like a dull and quiet place but service is very good. If you are in kandy its the best available resort without any second thought.

We only stayed one night during our tour of Sri Lanka, but we can say that it was a magical stay. Evening meal was excellent as was the breakfast. Plenty of choices, you won't leave hungry. The ground were beautifully kept and the location by the river was truly tranquil. Would I we stay again, you bet!

Large airy rooms that look out on a wrap around pool. It is old world colonial charm..a lovely place to relax away from the hectic world outside. Food is good and the atmosphere in the evening is enchanting with live music and dance. The trees are ancient and full of chirping birds. Prices are reasonable and the spa excellent. The... More

The staff were pleasant and welcoming. The reception, pool and dining areas were well laid out and inviting. However we were accommodated in a room which we can only assume was in the older wing of the hotel, as the distance to any of the amenities was quite far and confusing due to the layout. This issue may be the... More

Having travelled from Kaula Lampur where our experience had been exceptional and then to Kandy with a short stay at Earls Regency, Mahaweli was the worst thing we could do on our holiday.
