My fourth visit to this hotel, and the last stay was on the 25th to the 26th of September 2016. You are greeted with a broad smile, in the typical SriLankan custom and style. The staff overall were extremely efficient, and ever willing to assist. The rooms are large , spacious and spotlessly clean. If you are lucky enough to... More

We were in Kandy just a few weeks ago and enjoyed our time at Mahaweli Reach. the staff were outstanding, the place beautiful and comfortable. it's convenient to town, yet out of the bustle. Our favorite place was the pool, great for the kids to relax and beat the heat.

Check-in was a breeze. Quick and easy. However,once in the room there were several issues. Side-lamp not working. Teaspoons missing. No coffee. And no TV( unless you are a fan of noisy snowstorms) Undaunted I called reception and waited. And waited a bit more. Half an hour passed. Wife threatens a divorce. So I go to reception and remonstrate. Finally... More

We spent one night in this hotel when we recently visited Kandy. It is well located along the river, has all amenities one would expect from a large tourist hotel, and a friendly and professional staff. We saw large groups of Chinese tourists preparing their own instant noodles, middle eastern women smoking chisha and Europeans drinking wine. So far for... More

We stayed for 2 nights at the end of July 2016 for our honeymoon. The hotel is about a ten minute drive to the centre of Kandy, not really walkable because the road is really busy and dusty. The grounds and hotel reception areas are very well kept and clean. The pool is also lovely, if a little cold!! We... More

Location is very peaceful, calm and quiet. Rooms are very spacious so as the bathrooms. Room service is good and like the location of the pool as it's in a shady place. But did not really enjoy the breakfast buffet. Would have preferred a better spread for the price we paid
